Ranged: O-bow or E-bow
Neck: Rng Necklace (Chiv Chain for WS)
Ears: Drone x 2 (just can't justify the cost)
Body: AF1 or Shikaree Aketon (Shikaree Aketon until I can get Archers for WS)
Hands: Deadeye Gloves (anything better requires Sky/HNM)
Rings: Behemoth Ring / Crossbowsman ring (Ruby x 2 for WS)
Back: Amemet Mantle +1
Waist: RK +2 (Jungle Sash for WS unless Bastok controls something? lol)
Legs: Jaridah Salvars (Until I get Pahluwan Seraweels)
Feet: War Boots (Savage Gaiters for WS)
Anyone want to comment on that setup? Bad/Good? Don't bother with this or that piece? Of course if I am missing like crazy I will adjust because missing everything is sort of pointless.
Just a few suggestions for you.
Do you use sushi or meat? I always use meat dishes, so I go with alot of R acc gear.
Weapon: I'd get rid of woodville and get a Kriegsbeil. Also get a fire/vulcan staff for when you go /war.
Head: O hat for TP, wyvern helm for WS
Neck: Have you finished CoP? Work on getting Hope Torque
Ears: This is one slot that Rng just doesn't have alot of great choices. Melees get brutal/suppa/assault which are all nice, but useless for us. And yes, triumphs are expensive for very little benifit. I still keep one in storage, but thats more for resist build than for the str. You can work on getting Fenrir's, but only useful at night, so kind of annoying. Personally, I use Cassies for the HPs and Novia for the -enmity now.
Body: AF1 is nice for the R Acc. Work on getting a Kirins someday, it's still the best body piece for Rng.
Hands: From your comment here I guess you aren't in a sky shell. I'd suggest trying to find one. S. kote or crimson are just so much better than deadeyes.
Rings: I always go with 2 R acc rings for TP, then Rajas/behemoth +1 for WS
Waist/legs/feet: Get busy on dynamis. Scout's gear is great for these slots.
--EDIT-- I just did some checking and rough estimate is I loose 20~40 Dmg per WS if I even hit. The cost of that 20~40dmg on hades is 10~27M not including some items I don't have a price on and cursed gear. So at 500,000+ ~ 675,000+ per EACH additional point of Damage, Thanks for the offer, but I'll have to pass. At least for the time being.
The difference between good and great gear for rng may not increase your damage by much per shot or per weaponskill. However, you will hit more often for more and be able to weaponskill more often, and that will add up quickly. Also, alot of our best gear is costly in time, not gil.
