I finally breached Lv12 last night and so I went up into Tahrongi to seek out my first party as a Ranger. As we were waiting for the party to get together I was taking out even matches without breaking a sweat; considerably faster than another Lv12 Warrior was taking out Decent Challenges. Once the party was together we went into the Maze to fight Maze Makers. Our strategy was for me to hold aggro while the melees beat on the MM. It worked out perfectly, except I had to use Provoke to get aggro on me. I simply could not hit the Maze Makers. Help me understand this, though. We had a Lv14 in our party and we were able to pull 170-200 exp on many of the MMs. This indicates to me that the MMs were just perfect for the Lv14. Is this deficiency in my Ranged Accuracy due the mobs being more than just barely IT to me (ie: perfect for a Lv14)? The others reported missing a lot too so maybe I am just noticing how much more severe it is for a Ranger to miss since that is all our damage? Once I made Lv13, I noticed my accuracy was much better, but still lacking. While using Sharpshot at Lv13, I probably was hitting 3-4 out of every 5 shots. Without Sharpshot it was drastically worse. I was using Meat Mithkabobs.
Aside from Leaping Boots, I don't think there is any equipment I could use to improve my Ranged Accuracy. I am using the Hunter's Bow but I can't use bone ring+1s or beetle arrows yet. I could maybe bump my AGI up another point if I buy another Windurstian Ring, but would that really help much? I think I remember reading that eating Wild Onions boosted AGI. Should I be using them instead of Meat Mithkabobs?
Is this situation going to hold throughout my Ranger career or will it get progressively better as more Ranged Accuracy equipment/abilities becomes available?
