Crafting ArrowsFollow

I'm planning to be a ranger who makes his own arrows. So what are the good combination of guild skills for crafting arrows?

Woodworking
- Stone Arrow
- Wooden Arrow
- Bone Arrow
- Beetle Arrow

Woodworking/Smithing
- Iron Arrow

Woodworking/Goldsmithing
- Silver Arrow

Woodworking/Alchemy/Smithing
- Fire Arrow

I've got this from the list given in the guild recipe lists here in Allakhazam. Are there anymore that aren't posted? Are the other skills like Smithing and goldsmithing absolutely required? Or do they just help in the success rate? Some say that the other skills aren't even necessary.

Which arrows do higher level rangers use the most? I don't want to use crappy arrows. I want to deal as high a damage as possible continuously.

You don't need the other skill levels if you buy the arrowheads instead of the ores for the synth.

For instance, at level 26 woodworking, you can craft silver arrows with 0 Goldsmithing with the following recipe:

Silver arrowhead + yagudo fletching + ashwood lumber + Earth Crystal

Check out this thread for more info:

I have a RNG friend with me on Seraph that insists on using Beetle/Horn arrows to bump his accuracy (and have a lower delay), but I believe he using a different style of attack (that is, not joining in on the melee).

My style of play doesn't worry about delay as much as I usually shoot, swing with my dagger, shoot, rinse and repeat. Therefore, even at Lv38, I'll rotate between Iron and Silver Arrows while fighting (Iron for normal shoots, Silver for Barrage and WSs). Baring elemental arrows, I _think_ that Silver Arrows have the highest damage until Lv60 or so...

There's currently a shortage of Horn Arrows on my server. I think I'll have to spend some time following the advice on that Woodcrafting thread. Good find!
