Like some other classes, Arthetinean Skill Icon Arthetinean Skill can take different amounts of skills within builds. "422" and "332" refer to how many Normal, Drone & Joint skills taken in a build. Tpyically "442" is a more comfortable build with "332" having a theoretical higher DPS ceiling but has higher requirements to function properly.

The standard option between both builds, this offers consistent damage with little worry about managing your Battery. Instead of taking another Drone skill, you'll opt for Strategic Fire Icon Strategic Fire which will make you stationary for a moment. A downside is having more skills with Back Attack positionals, putting a tad bit more emphasis on hitting those. Generally you'll want to deploy your Drone and use Normal skills, recalling your Drone via a Joint skill or pressing X. Overcharged Battery Icon Overcharged Battery grants you 14 seconds of +6% damage Synergy in which you should be able to cycle through all your skills before it expires. Mobile Shot Icon Mobile Shot serves as a very useful animation cancel! It refreshes your Reload buff and also has speed bonuses through tripods that are activated per roll. You should hold subsequent rolls either as an escape tool or filler DPS while other skills are on cooldown. Given how encounters are in Lost Ark, following a strict rotation is just not possible. That being said, there are priorities you can keep in mind when playing to help provide some comfiness and an average DPS increase.

Arthetinean Skill 442 Rotation

Arthetinean 332

This build comes with a potential higher DPS ceiling at the cost of increased Battery consumption and a more punishing rotation. Replacing Strategic Fire Icon Strategic Fire with Command: Carpet Icon Command: Carpet, which is a damage increase assuming you can land at least three bombs. Otherwise, you'll be dealing less damage than a "422" build. You'll be required to use Conviction Icon Conviction / Judgment Icon Judgment and have high level Battery saving tripods to maintain skill uptime. Not only that, but food is recommended to also help with your resource economy. Compared to "422" this rotation is faster and doesn't have as high committment on its skills. Given the strict requirements that this build has in order to outperform the other, it's not quite as popular. Like the other build you do not have a set rotation, but an example damage cycle can be seen below.
