Lost Ark Deadeye Build | The Most Versatile DPS In Lost Ark

Lost Ark has tons of different characters with classes and advanced classes that you can choose from. If you’re looking for a DPS with excellent mobility, quick recharge, extra damage, quick attacks, variable cooldown, and high-adrenaline moments, the Deadeye is for you.

Deadeye players specialize in fast execution skills, close shot opportunities, and low defenses. With different weapons to swap to and maximize the damage dealt, this character reaches a vital point of equilibrium and utility in Lost Ark’s PvP and PvE encounters.

In this guide, we will give you full guidance about how to enhance your Deadeye build. Your search for information on this popular build is over.

What Is The Deadeye In Lost Ark?

The Deadeye character in Lost Ark is one of the Gunner advanced classes. This is a ranged damage-dealing character that has multiple weapons available like a pair of pistols, a shotgun, and a rifle. It’s like you’re seeing the Gunslinger’s male version.

You have 16 active skills and five passive abilities, all helping you focus on these aspects:

  • Deal damage / Crit damage.

  • High mobility.

  • Crowd Control.

  • Quick aim.

  • Back attacks.

  • Stun enemies.

The deadeye can be a cruel tracker that deals critical hits; a light footwork character with multiple explosives – like the freeze grenade – at hand or the last shot opportunist in close combat, all thanks to his three weapons and how you create your PvE or PvP builds.

You’ll have to use the Pistol Stance, Rifle Stance, or Shotgun Stance and use Changing Stances according to the situation. This flexibility isn’t seen in other classes in Lost Ark. Because of that, the Deadeye requires high specialization before you can use it properly.

Lost Ark Deadeye Build Combat Stats

Before you can unlock any Enhanced Weapon, Dexterous Shot, or Weakness Exposure skills, you need to know the basic stats you need in your Deadeye build.

Specialization

248

Domination

12

Swiftness

386

Endurance

278

Expertise

14

With these stats, you can start distributing your skills points to come with the best Lost Ark Deadeye Build.

Lost Ark Deadeye Build Accessories

Every Lost Ark class needs to have accessories. These items – Necklaces, Rings, Earrings, etc. – have secondary stats that help you improve your class performance even more.

But you can’t wear any item. You need to find those that give you the right stat so you can boost your skills. Whether you can increase your maximum damage, movement speed, or crit rate, you need to find the right equipment that has the bonus stat.

The good thing about Deadeyes is that you only need to focus on Specialization and Swiftness to increase damage to all your weapons and hit more critical attacks.

How To Play With a Deadeye in Lost Ark

To play with a Deadeye, you need to understand two things: you can’t stand attack damage and you have different ways for dealing damage, like melee range, medium range, and long range.

With that basic 101 knowledge about Deadeyes, here’s how you play with this advanced class to ensure you deal the highest damage possible.

You Aren’t a Frontliner

First of all, Deadeyes aren’t frontliners. This character is well known for long-range attacks that deal massive damage. But even though you can use him for close or mid-range attacks, you could easily die if you aren't aware of your surroundings.

Back Attacks Are Your Friend

Your edge is your attack speed, crit chance, and versatility, and you have to use them.

You can sneak past your opponent's back and use your Shotgun Rapid Fire, Bursting Flare, Explosive Bullet, Dexterous Shot, and similar to make a vital point shot and bonus damage due to back attacks.

This strategy isn’t for everyone; you need to control where you are, your team must have extremely good crowd control, and need other mobility skills that allow you to leave the close combat after you have dealt damage.

Use Your Weapon Stances

You have different Stances based on your weapons. These stances improve your stats and allow you to deal more damage. 

For example:

Shotgun Skills Stance: Your Shotgun skills deal more damage by up to 30%. Even though it may seem like you’ll only do fairly low damage, in reality, this increment in outgoing damage will help you and your party.

Pistol Skills Stance: Increases damage skills and movement skills from your pistols. You’ll also have more chances for critical damage.

Rifle Skills Stance: Increases the Physical and Magical Penetration of Rifle Skills by 0.03%. This is the less useful stance because it limits your performance a lot.

Most damage you’ll do will be using your pistols or shotgun, so make sure you have the right stances at hand to increase the total damage during combat.

You are a Party Player

Deadeyes can play alone, but most of the time, they are team players. There are some important synergy skills that you can use.

For example, applying Weakness Exposure to enemies – which you can find on the Tripods for the AT02 Grenade and Spiral Tracker Pistol Skills – to help your teammates with weak point detection. 

That alone gives you and your team an advantage compared to other players. Use it when switching weapons or trying to learn boss mechanics.

Lost Ark Deadeye Build Skills

Now that you know how to use the Deadeye advanced class, you need to know all the skills you can unlock and improve so you can use your skill points.

Core Abilities

The abilities are the ones that make you a Deadeye. These skills are crucial in a Deadeye PvE build – or PvP as well.

However, you’ll still need other skills to come up with your final set of skills.

PvE Skills

Lost Ark Deadeye Build Engravings

Among the Lost Ark Deadeye Builds, the class Engravings are the ones that will help you find a final light to improve your stats.

Enhanced Weapon Class Engraving

This engraving improves your critical rate when changing stances. Depending on the Engraving level, you’ll get 25%, 25%, or 30% during 9 seconds.

This is the best option to keep increasing damage for all your weapons, which allows you to have a more burst-focused playstyle using abilities with high mobility and damage.

Pistoleer Class Engraving

You can only use this engraving with the Pistol Stance. It increases your Handgun damage by 30%, 45%, or 60%; Stagger Damage and Awakening Damage are increased by up to 40% based on the Engraving level.

It’s one of the easiest ways to fight with the Deadeye, but since it locks your other stances, you’ll be using the other Engraving in most cases.

Recommended Advanced Engravings for the Lost Ark Deadeye Build

When combining Engravings for your PvE or PvP build, you should consider these below:

Adrenaline: Gain a secondary stat boost for both Attack Power and Critical Rate. It could help you max out your damage.

Raid Captain: Gain mobility to avoid incoming damage and use short windows for burst damage. You need to use the Spiral Tracker’s Quick Pace Tripod to have better results with this engraving. You can combine it with Spirit Absorption if you have high Swiftness.

Precise Dagger: As a special engraving for Pistoleers, it reduces critical damage but gives you free critical chances thanks to the critical bonus obtained due to the Specialization stat.

Keen Blunt Weapon: It exchanges raw damage for critical damage. Your shotgun skills could see a decrease in their performance if you don’t have the equipment – like Chaos Dungeon gear – or engravings that could help you cover the lack of raw damage.

Ambush Master: This engraving will help you become the master of ambush. It’s a great engraving for builds that aim for back attacks.

Grudge: You have more damage against boss-level monsters while reducing incoming damage.

Cursed Doll: Have access to more damage while reducing your healing abilities.

Lost Ark Deadeye Build - Summary

This Lost Ark Deadeye build guide can help you become a support DPS in your party or even solo a whole army of monsters. You only need to follow the recommendations we have given you here about how to play with this profession and the best skills you should use.

The Deadeye Advanced Class is one of the most versatile classes in Lost Ark. Its skills, Engravings, and different stances allow you to use him in different positions in the battle.

  • Galewind Runes.

  • Rage Runes.

  • Bleed Runes.

These can leverage your performance on a battlefield in both PvE and PvP encounters.
