Question about hit rateFollow

I just started up a Ranger and just hit lvl 14. My +agl/+rng acc equip is as follows.

Ranger's Necklace
Hunter's Bow
Beestinger Dagger
Windurst Ring
Ring (+1 agl, forget name)
Royal Footman's Bandana (+1 agl, think that is right name)

Before lvl 14 I wasn't hitting as much I would have liked to, and I thought that once I hit lvl 14 and got new equip I would see a major difference. I have been fighting gobs(VT or T) and MMs(IT) in the Maze off of Tahrongi and have been hitting only about 2/3 to 3/4 of the time. Sometimes I'll have like 3 or 4 misses in a row. I was just wondering if this was normal, or I should start using some food like Wild Onions. I do hit about 99% of the time when I have Sharpshot on.

I also noticed that Piercing Arrow doesn't seem to do as much dmg as Fire Arrow but is more accurate. I was wondering which everyone prefers to use.

Depends on the target and the TP. Piercing arrow will pass flaming arrow 90% of the time if you have full TP. Only acception would probably be to a mob that is weak to fire, making that extra fire elemental damage really nice. Otherwise, flaming arrow is usually better at lower TP (depending on enemy).

But I usually never use a weapon skill unless I have 300% TP, so msot of the time I use Piercing Arrow. Once in a while I'll try flaming just to see how much it does, and most of the time it doesn't do as much as piercing.

But yea, for some reason it does seem like Flaming Arrow missing much more... Another reason to stick to piercing :D

As for missing, it's pretty normal for a RNG below 30. The hardest part of being a RNG (besides money problems ><) is making it to lvl 30. Once you get there things get much better. With the Archers Dagger and Accuracy + Trait and all the +AGI and + Ranged Accuracy equiptment available, your miss rate goes down about 50% if not more. :D
