Ok, I've been seeing way too many Ara dealing subpar dmg and way too many people calling Ara a bad character. So I've finally decided to post this on the forums, because obviously, its badly needed. Many Ara players seem to forget that Ara is a hybrid of melee and range characters, and tend to stay back and spam left click. This is a TERRIBLE way to play Ara. What Ara players need to do, in order to deal more damage, is very simple: ACTUALLY USE THE JUMP BUTTON. When i spam jump usually get a consistent 9K-12K at lvl 90. To achieve perfect damage from the jumps, hold the left mouse button, and then use the right mouse button to jump. While doing this, you want to preemptively aim where the enemies are GOING to be. So if you are jumping to the left, aim right, and if you are jump to the right, aim left. Above are pictures that show the difference in dmg when using these moves. You'll also want to use the "Speed Shooter" passive along with the Passive that turns your water spray into bubbles. I like to call this the "Bubble Buster" build. Now i bet you're wondering, "How much better is this build, and will this actually make Ara a better character." The answer is: YES TOTALLY WAT. I ran a test earlier with another Ara in Player Training. They used their skills normally with the occasional jump, while i was using the Bubble Buster build. The difference in dmg was 61.4% to 38.6%.(me being the 61%) That's a HUGE difference and is easily a much better way to use Ara. Now, go use what you have learned, and #MakeAraGreatAgain
EDIT: I just tested jump with ALL of my SP in it. It boosted my dmg by 40%, WHICH WAS HUUUGE. So yeah there's that xD.
EDIT2: So i was looking through the detailed stats in the menu and i saw "Airborne attack dmg" This means that this build can be made stronger directly when this stat becomes available. Prepare yourselves boys, Ara's going to become a bird.
