Ivara

Ivara’s specialty is the bow and arrow. Prowling in the battlefield, she is capable of hunting her prey while remaining undetected.

Ivara’s passive is Sentry. She is capable of detecting enemies in close proximity to her, marking them on the minimap. This effect stacks with mods that provide the same effect.

Quiver

Ivara’s first ability is Quiver. Ivara reaches into her bow and selects one of four specialized arrows, each with a different effect. Tapping the ability button will cycle through the different arrow types and holding it will shoot the currently selected arrow.

First we have the Cloak Arrow. Ivara shoots an arrow that clings to a surface or entity, generating a bubble that will cloak Ivara and any allies within it. There is a maximum number of bubbles that can be active at the same time. Creating another one will remove the oldest. Next we have Dashwire Arrow. Ivara shoots an arrow that creates a zipline between her and the target location. There is a maximum number of ziplines that can be active at the same time. Then we have Noise Arrow. Ivara shoots an arrow that creates noise on impact, drawing unalerted enemies close to it to investigate. Finally we have Sleep Arrow. Enemies within a certain radius of its point of impact will be put to sleep for a period of time. Sleeping enemies will wake up prematurely when they take enough damage.

Quiver
Navigator

Navigator

Ivara’s second ability is Navigator. Upon activating the ability, Ivara will assume direct control of the next projectile fired by her weapons or abilities. She can also take control of a projectile currently in flight. The projectile can be steered with the aiming reticle and will accelerate when pressing the fire button. Pressing the aim button will slow it down. While the projectile is being controlled, it gains additional damage per second, up to a maximum based on a damage multiplier. Navigator will drain energy while a projectile is being controlled.

Prowl

Ivara’s third ability is Prowl. Ivara cloaks herself, becoming invisible to enemies. While cloaked, she gains bonus damage on headshots but her movement speed is reduced. She is also capable of pickpocketing enemies. Standing close to enemies has a chance to produce extra loot after a few seconds but it only works once for each enemy and only one enemy can be pickpocketed at a time. This is a channeled ability. It will remain active, until it’s deactivated. However, using a non-silent weapon will reveal Ivara momentarily. If Ivara sprints, slides or bullet jumps, the ability will deactivate and must be reactivated manually. Prowl will constantly drain energy, draining more when Ivara is moving or using melee attacks.
Prowl
Artemis Bow

Artemis Bow

Ivara’s fourth ability is Artemis Bow. Ivara draws her exalted bow and uses it as a primary weapon. Each shot will cost energy and shoots several arrows in a vertical orientation. Holding down the fire button to perform a charged shot will spread the arrows horizontally instead. Using the alternate fire button while the Artemis Bow is active will instantly fire Quiver’s currently selected arrow. Ability Strength mods affect the maximum damage multiplier of Navigator, the headshot bonus and steal chance of Prowl and the damage of Artemis Bow. The Artemis Bow can also be modded from the arsenal.

Ivara Builds

Ability Range mods affect the radius of Quiver’s Cloak, Noise and Sleep arrows. They also affect the steal range of Prowl. Ability Duration mods affect the duration of the effects from Quiver’s Cloak and Sleep arrows and the steal duration of Prowl. They also affect the energy drain of Navigator and Prowl.

So, all things considered, here are some builds you may want to try on your Ivara:
