Is my WS affecting my bow damage if i choose pierce? I mean, if i don't really rely on my pierce weapons - why not take the blades snare(which is cheaper) and put the other points into archery or skip on weapon arts entirely? I don't even know if the side stun(only 4seconds) is worth anything. Imagine you don't land your side snare after the stun - oof. As sniper you are probably dead if you can't kill your target in the first place nor be able to run away - i guess.
So if i would not bother to spec into weapons i would end up with something like:
13 celtic dual
or if makes no sense to spec higher than 40 into archery then:
18 celtic dual
With gaining rr you can drop stealth down to 35 and pump these points into weapon art and/ or celtic dual like you said - or bow(dunno why you would if you don't go for it right from the start).
From others' testing you don't get much extra damage above 52 comp Archery. Based on that 40 is a good stopping point for the Penetrating Arrow. RF2 isn't worth it with the endo pots in game, and even an endo heal pot if you really need it, which in nearly every situation you won't.
You can go Blades for the cheaper spec point investment but you lower WS which can reduce your chance to hit from what I remember. I may be wrong about that though, since I don't remember that info off of the top of my head.
Never go below 18 CD.
Aside from the 18 CD thing others with more experience playing the Sniper Ranger role may disagree with me and that's cool. It's important to consider what they say too.
