Bah. I *really* want to become a Ranger. I think it sounds so fun! But all this talk of how expensive it is is scaring me to death. Currenly I'm playing a Thief, and I'm POOR AS SIN!!! How the crap do these people at level 30 have like 80k gil? At level 24, I'm hovering at a constant ~3k, it's pathetic! I'm never gonna be able to make even a DECENT living as a Ranger on this chicken feed! The groups don't help, either! "WHAT?! YOU DONT HAVE ARCHER'S KNIVES!!! You're not worth our time." /disband. What's with groups and not accepting you if you're the BEST you can be. I'm gonna be the most naked Ranger, throwing pointy sticks rather than shooting Iron Arrows at my enemies. /rant off
So I guess what I'm getting at is... Does anyone have any suggestions for SAVING money? Like.. do I REALLY need to spend all that much money on armor? (If it doesn't give +AGI or +Ranged Accuracy) I realize it's fun to have armor on, and feel like you're protected... but if the armor I'm buying is deducting from my "Arrow Fund," that's gonna suck, cause I'm already poor as it is. "The Ranger shouldn't be the choice of a poor man."
Gah, all this Gil upkeep is pissing me off. Even as a Thief, I'm barely surviving in the economy! How in the world do I expect to make an effective Ranger? (I'm so poor, I'm not even an effective Thief :P)
Maybe Beastmaster is the job for me. *sigh*
