Scout / Warden is one of the best combinations for a Scout, even if it requires one to play an elvish character. An extremely aggressive combination, it makes the most of delivering high levels of burst damage against a single target, giving them an edge in boss fights or against other players. While other Scout combos tend to give the class a broader tool kit to handle with a variety of situations, this one goes all-out on the offensive, and with such an overwhelming attack it more than makes up for what, at first glance, appears to be lacking.

Main Ways of Build[]

Dexterity is once again the most important attribute to be looking at to enhance Physical Attack Power, given how most of the damaging skills are based on ranged weapon damage. Strength is another good stat to look for, though it takes lower precedence over Dexterity since the only thing it really enhances is the damage from Charged Chop and Briar Shield. Stamina is also a good secondary stat to invest in, to maintain a good level of health.

As soon as level 15 it becomes apparent how aggressive this combo is. Briar Shield, normally a defensive tool, becomes an attack through Thorn Arrow; later on, the reflected damage of the Shield can root targets. This is one of two tools that give players control over other enemies, the other being that Charged Power grants Charged Chop a knockdown effect. This gives the combo both a kiting tool and a chasing tool in PvP, and both of them can deal considerable damage once properly trained.

What's unique to this combo is Entling Offering, a tool that is generally applied to bosses so Autoshot can deal damage both to it, and to smaller groups of mobs at the same time, especially when used with Gryphon Bash. While this doesn't affect other skills besides Shot, it nonetheless gives the combo an unusual amount of consistency. When it comes to focusing on bosses, Hide Scent allows one to drop towards the bottom of the aggro table, while enhancing the skill Hidden Peril, which in turn enhances Snipe, which then increases the Physical damage that it takes; a tremendous amount of synergy, even if the cooldowns don't sync up to let this be done consistently. Combo Shot also helps with increasing the chances of a target taking critical damage, complementing the combo's aggressive playstyle.
