All of these items will grant the player extra ranged damage and critical strike chance.

For your skills, you want to head over and open up your Range Combat skill tree and try to get the Amplified Precision 5/5 skill which will give you +40% Critical Hit Damage.

The next skill tree to choose is the Fishing skill tree. Here you want to try and obtain the Power of Omega-3! 5/5 skill which will give you +15% damage against bosses after eating fish or cooked food made out of fish.

Fish will be the main ingredient for this update that you will be using for creating great foods. Combine this skill with your other status effects and you will have a great time deleting bosses.

The last skill to look for can be found in the Melee Combat area. Here you will need to obtain the Strength of the Ancients 5/5 skill. This skill is going to grant you extra +20% Damage against bosses.

Combining all of this together will get your damage up to 740+ damage. The build is focused mainly on critical damage. You will have around 300% critical hit damage upon each critical hit.


When it comes to food, there are a ton of combinations that you can make and eat foods to get more stats, but by far one of the better food options for this build is the Coral Red Gold Steak. This food item will grant you the following stats:
