Similarities between EQ rangers and FFXI rangers.
-We dont handle damage well, nor aggro which we constantly have to watch out for-
-We excell at ranged damage-
-We look damn cool-
-We can scan and track-
-We are one of the top damage dealers at every level of the game-
-We dont get any spells at all, we are not a melee/druid hybrid as in EQ where we share alot of spells.-
-Unlike EQ we dont have a jolt line of spells nor anything similiar to shed aggro-
-We are the optimal pullers, unlike EQ where monks/bards/ and lull pacify pullers reign-
-We dont melee much at all, most often, we only wield hand held weapons for stat bonuses. Furthermore, we do the most damage with ranged attacks starting at level 1, unlike EQ rangers that dont really start to shine with ranged damage untill they get Archery mastery 3 and Endless Quiver AA's.-
-We cost alot more to maintain than EQ rangers due to the fact 99% of our damage from lvl 1 is from arrows which cost gil. In EQ, rangers melee'd for the majority of their pre-60 life.
-We are very rare. In EQ, everyone and their mom was an elf ranger with some variation of Legolas as the name. Okay okay, im exagerating hehe...or am I? In FFXI rangers are very rare. Expect to see very few and expect alot of people to not understand your strengths/weaknesses.-
