starting job for rangerFollow

#1 Nov 26 2003 at 11:50 PM Rating: Default
I'm planning to make a ranger using bow. Any suggestion which job I should pick first? Thief? warrior? redmage?? I think thief is a good choice. If I'm in a group, I will be the one pulling mobs with my arrow and then run to the group. Stay with the mages and keep shooting arrows. Any suggestion?

in my view, thief would be the better choice... not sure what your question's getting at, but as a sub to ranger, theif... or better yet a ninja, but costly... (arrows/jutsus)

Rangers are, without a doubt, the best pullers - you're less likely to be aggro'd, you can spot more enemies more easily, and you've got the bow for grabbing their attention. Also, because you're a ranger, you can do more damage with your archery skill than others, so the mob is already hurt before getting back to camp.
I'm thief, about to get Ranger. When I get to lvl 30, I'll have the high-powered range shots, so I'll be pulling. Run back to camp, get the WARs to grab the aggro, then pop in with a few ranged shots until TP is high enough to SA/Fast Blade.
Talk about a damage-dealer.
Thief also works well with gilfinder and treasure hunter, so you can pay for all those arrows you're using.
On the technical side, both thieves and rangers base their attacks on their AGI and DEX, and both have advantages in both; using the two together makes both better. From what I've read, it seems to be one of the more "natural" matches in the game. There aren't many now, but most US players are JUST getting to lvl 30 and the advanced jobs, so you may start seeing more.
