Huntsman skills in Divinity: Original Sin 2 are ranged skills often performed with Ranged Weapons. They are similar to Divinity: Original Sin's Expert Marksman skill line, dealing physical damage and in some instances piercing damage, that bypasses enemy armour. Huntsman Skills benefit from Finesse. Since this school dedicates to Ranged player, it is recommended to not put point in this school unless there is a Bow-user in your team. Extra point from Gears can be used to get First Aid, a strong healing/buff ability that can be used with any other schools.

      Just to point out that Huntsman damage bonus works on ALL damage types, physical and magical and piercing, as long as they are ranged attacks/skills and there is a height advantage compared to the target.
      Also its damage bonus is calculated at the "end" of the damage formula so it increases total damage done (similar to how Warfare works) and not just base damage.

        I got to say, Ifan ben mezd actually is a good archer because he is one of the only archers (actually, Wayferrer)

          If you are standing right in front of a target, you can use arrow spray as if it was a shotgun effect hitting them easily with 10+ arrows

            I think a Huntsman/Conjurer would be awesome. The whole keep away strategy here is so obvious, and with conjurers having those turrents/totems deployable every round i can really see this turning into a artillery firing line real quick.

              I have a full-huntsman elf build going, it's ridiculous how much damage I can do with just an Epic XBow I found. Chuck a rune or two on there, and you're dealing elemental damage + height advantage. I can get through most interactions now (level 17) without enemies ever getting through my armors.

                Some ask Warfare or Huntsman?

                While it is false that Huntsman's gives 1% crit (that comes from Ranged Skill) I think is worth spending points in Huntsman instead of Warfare if you use bows / crossbows. As someone pointed out, damage from ranged is not only physical but also has a great amount of elemental damage. And, if you're hybrid ranged / magic, the bonus from heigth will apply also to your spells. Isn't that awesome?

                  Assassinate gets it's bonus damage from stealth, does that have to be stealth like the chameleon ability in polymorph or does sneaking count as stealth too? If so then does it also stack with the bonus damage from the Guerilla talent making it do a bonus of 90% damage when sneaking?
