Despite countless numbers, data-crunching, respecing, comparing between equips, and every other inconsequential aspect of our builds that we can argue about without an end, there is only one most important variable that will differentiate you between other players: you.
You, the player, and how you play is the biggest determinant on the outcome of your XP grinding and farming runs. How fast your team can finish a map depends on how fast YOU can efficiently kill enemies.
It does not matter if you have the best equips in the game.
It really doesn't. If you have top-notch gear and the player next to you has average gear but he can play his character better, he/she will be better than you, even if your gear costs 2m and their gear costs 1500 gold.
Skill is not bought; it is nurtured, refined, and perfected.
To my fellow archers: your days of staying in the back, timid and afraid because your armor is too squishy, are over. You belong in the head of the battlefield, right next to the mages and warriors. Don't be lazy and NEVER hold off on skills because you're afraid of aggro. You chose to be the best damage dealing class, so fulfill your role. I hope some of you may be inspired and take charge as well.
And now I present a video on how I play. Friends that know how I play know I do not have any Raid Roach or Customized equips - I use Bagman's (the green archer gear that costs 500g) and a Crown of Persistence (also not bought, but earned). The only thing "bought" is the ring that costs 10 platinum, and my vanity helm.
This is not a step-by-step instructional video on what to do. This is a video of a run showing you:
1. How quickly skills should be used
2. How to be in the frontline of your party while keeping a close distance with them
3. How fast potions should be consumed
4. How to "setup" enemy mobs for the rest of your party
