Firstly, I love this job :D, I'm definitely going to main it. To my surprise, I've managed to more than keep up with the costs so far, I have 20k in spare change and all my equiptment is upgraded. I'm only lvl 12 so that doesn't really say much, but I'm still happy :)

But I'm kind of stuck now; I looked at the price for the next bow (lvl 12), The Hunters Bow, and its 20k. It looks well worth the money, but I also looked a little further ahead and the Power Bow+1 (lvl 16) is up for 30k and is a little better than the Hunters.

I could probably make the extra money to buy them both, as much as a pain in the *** that would be ><, but could I get away with just getting one of them? If so, which one would I be better off with? Waiting and saving for the Power Bow +1, or just getting the Hunters Bow, and that would last me fine past lvl 16.

IMO it doesn't seem like the power bow +1 is worth the extra 10k, but I don't know for sure.... But thanks in advance for any help/opinions :D

trust me it is worth getting both, ... the power bow you will most likely use till level 30. then the next bow is at lv40 then lv50 then lv55. when you reach 30 sell the power bow for 30k then buy the next one for 34k, same for the level 40 bow, sell the previous one for 34 then but the lv 40 bow for 38k.

its really not that bad, sorry i know the levels of the bow but i get the names mixed up

The ways I see it, there's no reason not to buy both of them when the time comes. You'll get your money back from the AH when you outgrow your current bow.

Why don't you just buy the Hunters Bow (or better yet, go hunt Juu Duzu, only took me 3 hrs (3 kills)) and then sell it when you get to lvl 16. Power Bow + 1 will only cost you an extra 10k. No point in buying both at the same time, buy then upgrade.

Oh, and that lvl 55 bow, check my sig ;)
Fei'Yin lvl 63 NM drops it.... can't wait to spend weeks hunting that mob :)

Ended up dropping 36k on my greatbow+1 at 30. 10k a piece for my drone earings, and 11k a piece for my horn rings +1. So thats almost 80k just from earings/rings/and a bow from lvl 30-35.

Yeah but you'll get your money back for your bows / old equipment, providing prices havn't dropped.

And since RNGs are slightly rare, I don't see prices dropping any time soon. All you need is the initial cash, and you end up getting it all back.

Only problem with the rarity is it takes forever to sell ranger only items. I had put 2 bone ring+1 up for sale and they were returned to my mog house 6 times due to them staying on auction for too long, they were the only ones for sale in San D'Oria too.

Same with my power bow+1. Took me 2 weeks real life time before it finally sold, once again it was the only one for sale in San D'Oria.

So yeah, the prices on ranger gear is pretty steady, but dont expect it to sell fast. On any given day there are at least 15+ warriors of any level standing at any given AH looking for gear. As for rangers, your lucky if there is one standing there looking for gear.

I have yet to return more than 4 rangers on a /search ranger in any given town or area, Jeuno included.
