    A few questions to higher level rangers.

    I have talked to a few rangers i know on my server about post update ranger and if it is still worth leveling or not... I love the job concept >.> shooting up all the crabs and shit in vana, but anyway... At behemoth and stuff they still pump out some decent numbers and my past two XP pt's i had with a RNG (lvl 70) where great.
    So all im really asking is should i take the time/money to level it or just go w/ plan B and level up ninja next.

    Thanks for your input 8)

    The nerf only made them closer in usefulness to other jobs. Level it if you enjoy it.

    To an LS that knows that to do, RNG still does great damage end game.. To people who jumped that "OMG LEIK RNG IS TEH SUX"... Then you're doomed end game.. You're almost 75. Just finish it off.

    the nerf makes it impossible to do a good slut shot when you have hate, and your barrage misses alot. the damage is still there or even better then before.

    This is preupdate:

    The 1st sidewinder was from a mithra rng (which apparently sucked), and the 2nd of course was from me.

    Unfortunately I didn't take a screenshot of my most recent post-update high Slug Shot/Sidewinder but I pulled out a 1123 slug shot with x-bow on IT++ processionaires (sp) in Boyadah.

    I seriously don't believe that it was a nerf, or for me at least. All it did was force me to change my equip and style and i was pumpin out more dmg then I was ever before the update.

    Fuck all the people who say RNG is the new DRG


    and I'm feeling random so heres a pic of my sexy self

    Why would you slugshot when you have hate anyways... rng take less dmg tanking naked then with our paper thin armor. 90% of the time we DONT want hate, so WSing with hate would just be, for lack of a better word, dumb.

    Seem with the patch that you're either going to suck and miss a lot, or nail every time for awesome dmg. I'm glad they made that patch, before there used to be people that didnt know jack about the job and died all the time then would get mad at the tank because they didn't know how to control hate.
