This is what I'll be wearing at least, I made a list of RNG suited equip up to lvl 30 and this is the armor section basically. You may disagree with some items (people have opinions), but generally I think most would agree this list is accurate.

I apologize for the formatting, it's really hard to do in this tiny text window, and this thing obviously doesn't copy tabs over, sorry.

How much is strider on Diablo?!?

There a couple errors. Arms is same as gloves. Rng should use +1 rings. Rng can also use axes, which are better than daggers until archer's knife. Nomad's Mantle is better than travelers and will be good for a long while. As for armor, you can use jerkin, brass scale, and cent. armor. I personally used steam scale mail at lvl 27. You can use cpt. Mrc. Belt at lvl 30.

I prefer daggers, it's personal preference. The rings listed are +1, it just doesn't say it. Body armor isn't listed because you can use any, there is nothing specific.

I'd just like to make a couple of adendums of my own:

Royal Footman's Banana Lv10 (AGI+1, still wearing at Lv38)

Drone Earring Lv35? (AGI+3)

Bone, Beetle, Horn, Scorpion, Carapace Ring

Also, a lot of the RSE gear (especially Elvaan and Galka) has crazy AGI bonuses for the Leg and Foot Armor, so that's something you might consider...

Current equipment:
Main - Archer's Knife
Ranged - Great Bow +1
Head - Royal Footman's Bandana
Neck - Ranger Necklace (duh)
Earring - Drone Earring, Drone Earring
Body - Centurion Scale Mail
Hand - Magna Gloves
Ring - Beetle Ring, Horn Ring (yes, I need to upgrade)
Back - Nomad's Mantle
Waist - Mercenary Captain's Belt
Leg - Magna M Chausses
Foot - Magna M Ledelsens

As a ranger on Asura (Just got it last weekend but am already to 30). Here are my suggestions as what I have.

First of all strider boots ARE NOT in anyway cheaper. LOL. Have you SEEN THE PRICE they are anywhere from 2.5 mil to 4 mil on most servers. Now I would love one of these as think about how great of a puller you would but I dont plan on spending all of my 3 mil on one pair of boots at least not yet.

As for the bow I suggest sticking with hunters this is debatable but most high lvl rangers told me this was good and I like it for the low delay.

Dont get bone earings get silver earings. WHY? Because bone earings boost ur what as a ranger you shouldn't worry about your "attack" and only worry about your "ranged attack" i suggest getting silver for when you get that unexpected agro. (silver is opposite of bone it gives you + evasion)

I stayed away from the brave belt cause of the agility thing that might be fine for you. But I dont like missin even if it is only a .5 ra difference.

(BTW I am a lvl 30 ranger/15 nin with blink and dual archers knives, leaping boots, emperors hairpin....well you get the picture I did not skimp when it came to my equipment and always use the best ammo i suggest using beetle or horn normally and putting /equip ammo "Silver Arrows" for when you use sharpshot.

As far as I can tell, Mithra RSE isn't that great specifically for RNG wear...perhaps other people may disagree.

As far as I can tell, most of the attributes on the pieces are neither for STR or AGI. I wouldn't mind the foot piece though.

Maybe because us Mithra are so perfect we don't need the boost. *purrr*

I would argue that any piece of equipment that boosts AGI or STR is good for a RNG, and even Mithra have two pieces of RSE that boost STR.

Maybe you need STR to make up for your ability to hit everything...

Maybe I need AGI to make up for my strength to actually be able to pull the string on the bow back... =)
