    Bye bye Mr. Kirin

    I'm yet to witness this myself but I've heard from other sorces that Ranger is really gimped now, especially for kited mobs, it's gonna be fun now when our Kirin takes like 5 hours and any other LS who's damage is heavily relied on by Rangers.

    Better all start leveling our BLMs now. >.>

    Eh, we Rangers just have to up the level of our game a bit. It's not the end of everything as we know it.

    From what I have heard, it is bad...not something that simply buying more uber gear will fix.

    I heard Bard is the new RNG.

    Can't wait for Song-burn parties.

    What you've heard isn't what you've played. :3

    I'm telling you it's not that bad. Just takes some time to get used to.

    Have you fought a god yet? I assume you tested the new distance thing on too weaks... read what they did to rng on stuff higher then them.

    no no it's just bad, ranged accuracy decreases as you get farther away from the mob and attack increase and visa versa, so basically up close to a kited mob=shit DMG and ya wanna go for the high shot DMG and you miss..

    You assume incorrectly, I'm afraid to say. I haven't had the opportunity to fight a god seeing as this update BS is keeping my linkshell out, but I have had a run at EXP and done some odds-and-ends tomfoolery.

    Heh Drg or Rng. Hmm Drg {No Thanks.} What I have read on other forums rng just need to find the sweet spot in exp parties and gods/hnm. It will just take abit of time to figure out what they gotta do. I do think it was good they did the update on rng.

    What about my idea where you get six nin/blms and cast elemental debuffs on the mobs, then kite them around until they die? I call it Burn-burn.

    Someone on my server said that they used to pull off a 600 sidewinder on Fafnir. After the update and fighting him, it was at best a 200. His shots also decreased in damage by 50-75 points.

    Of course, thats not an exp mob, so I don't know how much differently it could hurt exp parties.
