Melee weapon and Bow as a starting WARFollow

Hello all.

I would like to know what weapon I should be using as a Warrior when first starting out.

Also, would it be wise to try and use a bow/crossbow as a warrior to level the skill up before getting to a ranger? Or would i be better off waiting until I get ranger before trying to use a bow.

Thanks for the info you can provide!

Level early.

I'm not a ranger, but I know my monk class is easier because I spent time raising evasion as a thief, and worked a little hand to hand as well before switching.

Lvl up your bow early... it is a great way to damage a mob before melee... as a lvl 14 thief being able to do 25 - 35 damage per shot before mob gets to me is very valuable

and speaking on that note, i did not know this when i began and I hope this helps some people out:

when you are leveling, the only way to max your skill is to attack something of even con, and all the skills seemed to have a certain cap against what con mob you are fighting.. when you max out your skill for that lvl it turns blue.

Now i admit im only lvl 14 now, so this may not be 100% accurate, but fighting decent cons seems to stop giving skill ups at a certain point, then when i fight an even con i go up again untill skill turns blue.. tough to do, but necessary, and another reason to group.

From what I have noticed, what a mob cons to you has little effect on if the skill will increase or not. I beleive that a mobs evasion skill as it compares to your weapon skill is what determines whether or not it will increase.

I believe this because when I was a 15 level Warrior I switched from Sword to Axe. I fought some mobs that where not worth my effort and my axe skill increased.

That is because your axe skill was low.
The point is comparing your weapon skill level to the level of the mob. Your job level doesn't seem to matter much (except you will kill easy enemies in fewer hits, of course, thereby getting fewer skill points per kill).
