    Would it be possible to have Bowmans be able to jump cast?

    They're the only ranged class there that can't which are
    Pirate (Gunslinger path) and Rogue (Assassin path)

    The reason for this is Bowmen are meant to be agile, having to think quickly and accurately shoot their enemies and in some cases, in mid-air combat.

    Shadowers are able to use Boomerang Step on hills/platforms, for Bowmen it would be sort of the same but instead being able to attack monsters that are above a certain height.

    Since Bowmen's abilities are all linear having this QoL for them being able to jump cast comfortably, rather than button smashing and still having the arrows appear as if you're still on the ground this would make it more enjoyable for both veteran and new players.

    Hopefully such a change is doable, and not restricted by the Client.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Edit: This can be moved to Denied to avoid suggestion clutter.

    I feel like just straight up giving them jumpcast would perhaps come with some some pretty significant impact on grinding, bossing or dps in general.

    Corsairs can’t use most of their skills mid-air.

    This includes all Battleship skills, Rapid Fire, and Air Strike.

    Its more towards 1st to 3rd because theres Hurricane for them and thats pretty much holding it down, pretty sure Snipe can jump cast though, unless thats a visual thing from player's client.

    They can still jump cast from 1st to 3rd job, Bowmen can't reliably jump cast at all.

    You are able to jumpcast Strafe. Anyone that tells or have told you otherwise is lacking in both player skill and class knowledge.

    I think I sorta didn't explain it here that well, my bad on my part

    If my character is using Strafe it should use it where the animation is, where its in mid-air but, its still on the ground as if I never jumped, The other skills besides Arrow Rain doesn't work while jumping.

    Its different to others rather than the players' client, like how chair glitch is how the chair isn't visible on your client but it is to others.

    The best BM's get is buffered momentum, but otherwise jump casting is possible with almost anything. A lot of the top tier plays are done by folks who mastered it. It does seem like something that, if changed, would remove more player skill from the game.

    Jump casting is actually best done via Sticky Keys, with your jump key on a reactor key(alt/control/shift) with your attack on spacebar. Doing so allows you to continually move while jump firing to reposition or travel while attacking on your Corsair/Marksman/Mage.

    If you have a keyboard with anti-ghosting features you don't need to use sticky keys and place your jump on ctrl/alt/shift

    As a mac user, I'm able to consistently jump cast using command and any letter key. Good luck ~

    This works with Arrow Rain although Strafe still has that annoying cast animation, I'll change my hotkey settings.

    Thanks for the help!
