Also since ranger you have to be a least 30 you could sell all of your previous class equipment get a huge stash off 100k+ and focus on your ranger. You won't need your previous class equipment till you get to level 60 (to work on ur subjob again) an probably it will be cheaper than ever when you buy it again.
I did this exact thing. When i unlocked Ranger i headed to the AH and put all my 31 Monk's gear up for sale. I logged off that night. The next day upon logging i had about 97K ready to start my Ranger.
Dont go all out for your level on spending. Buy level 1 ranger gear and use that untill lvl 10. Almost all the gear worth spending money on opens up at lvl 10 requirement.
With the 97k i bought martial slacks for when i reach lvl 24 (20k), a beestinger(8k), a hunters longbow for when i hit 12(10k), and 2 bone ring+1for when i hit 16(6k a piece) .
With my conquest points i had saved up i bought a Royal footmans bandana which has +1 AGI for when i hit level 10, a Royal Archers Longbow for when i hit lvl 10,and some royal footman's boots also for level 10, and some footmans gloves.
I started out with a bunch of crap level 1 gear i threw together, a shortbow and some wood arrows. At lvl 7 i switched to bone arrows. At level 10 I put on all the lvl 10 gear that i had bought and filled in the empty slots with lvl 10 Scale mail.
Now at lvl 11, i have alot of my more expensive gear awaiting me in my mog safe for when i reach the appropriate level. I have 30k left for arrows and food which should last me awhile. Due to having alot of my gear bought already, i make more cash daily then i spend in arrows and food so by the time i need to upgrade again i should have plenty of cash.
Rambling, but just agreeing with the notion of selling your level 30 chars gear off to fund your ranger. Also, conquest points are a good way to get "free" gear. Edited, Wed Dec 24 12:55:23 2003 by Jowaa Edited, Wed Dec 24 12:56:38 2003 by Jowaa
