Nothing like a good blaster on your side, especially in such a war-torn galaxy.
The Marksman Starting Profession introduces characters to the world of ranged combat. Players learn the basic use of the three major categories of ranged weapons: (rifles, carbines, and pistols), as well as support abilities that increase their versatility in combat. Characters wishing to specialize in one or more ranged weapons can go on to several elite and hybrid professions that branch off of Marksman.
This profession requires 77 skill points to master.
XP requirements to master:
- 91,000 Rifle XP (granted for killing MOBs with a rifle)
- 91,000 Pistol XP (granted for killing MOBs with a pistol)
- 91,000 Carbine XP (granted for killing MOBs with a carbine)
- 30,550 Combat XP (granted along with any weapon XP as 10% of the weapon XP gained)
Base Skills Overview
The first three branches in Marksman teach players how to use rifles, pistols, and carbines, respectively. Each branch contains the specials to increase combat effectivess. While CDEF weapons are basically the same, pistols generally are fast with low damage at close range, rifles are slower with high damage at long range, and carbines are in between.
Ranged Weapon Support Abilities
Marksmen also learn combat support abilities that can be useful in combat. These include posture changing attacks and valuable defense mods. The Ranged Support branch is required for almost every elite ranged profession.
