Crossbow Pros

Very high damage, better than that of the Hunters

Iron Arrow's range of attack is higher than Arrow Bomb's

Iron Arrow can attack through walls, unlike Arrow Bomb

Iron Arrow does more damage on average than Arrow bomb

As one of the least common classes, their equipment and scrolls are very inexpensive

They require 5 less STR than Hunters to equip their weapons, resulting in slightly higher dexterity, which contributes to damage and accuracy

Crossbow Cons

Their attack speed is lower, resulting in lower mobility

Iron Arrow does not stun like Arrow Bomb

Why no Final Attack?

For Crossbowman, it is mainly better to go FAless, the reasoning behind this is that Iron Arrow does not stun, and therefore when FA kicks in when your mobbing, youll get mobbed instead.
