Kill Shot is your top priority but it is only usable after the target’s health is below 20%. Once you can use it, you should use it as often as possible.

Serpent Sting needs to be up at all time. Buffs Chimera Shot 

Chimera Shot is your second best damage dealing ability. 

Aimed Shot is better than Arcane Shot but only with enough Armor Pen. Use Arcane Shot until you have the Armor Pen then switch to Aimed Shot.

Arcane Shot is only used when you have low Armor Penetration. Should not be used with the second build.

Kill Shot -> Serpent Sting -> Chimera Shot -> Aimed Shot or Arcane Shot -> Steady Shot
