Well that concludes an awfully long-winded post! Interesting that the Cannon shooter uses STR as its main stat, one would think that a conventional ranged class would use DEX. Hope you enjoyed it, please comment on what you think of it! Be sure to check out the new Mercedes and Demon Slayer classes which are set to be released alongside the Cannon Shooter in the Legend update.
