Just a quick FYI: The crits you see for 2000+ damage really only happen with trueshot active. Trueshot only lasts 2 minutes, so the insane DPS you think rangers have all the time is only in a short burst. I would also like to point out that although we do get lucky sometimes and score a few big crits in a row, rangers are no where close to the "2k dmg each shot" that you claim to see.

In testing my Stonewood Compound Bow outdamaged my Ornate Greatsword by about 30% self buffed. However, I don't yet have the 3rd level of punishing blade to maximize my 2hs damage. Also it is a real pain most of the time to get a clear line of sight for archery and to constantly hit my ranged attack key (and no I don't want to spend money on a gamepad, EQ is bad enough without accessories) so I melee all the time unless I need a substantial DPS increase and know that I can keep a clear line of sight for the entire duration of my Trueshot discipline.

I'm sorry I wasted my time here, but I felt that some people were quite misinformed.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 07 2003 at 5:14 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) did you say high end rangers surpass their bows dmg? wut are u crazy? a ranger with AM and EQ are unstoppable with a bow. as long as you have an open shot ur DPS can surpass pretty much any other class. i see rangers who crit with bows for over 2k dmg each shot. it is the lower lvls when rangers bow is not as useful as melee get ru facts straight

Your facts are the ones that are wrong, buddy.

Unfortunately bow DPS maxes at about 170 non-trushot. Rangers which have elemental weapons easily do more damage than that.

Actually, a ranger with the AA in the right area, can outdamage his bow with a 2hs.

For those discussing the "Karana Only" thang..

Not so much going to argue the point with you, but just thought it worthwhile to point out that Diety names on items have never meant that much to VI..

Witness the Shadowknight's EPIC (true, it's not all that nowadays, but at the time of indroduced it was, well, EPIC). Innoruk's Curse. Far from Innoruk only and a rather silly choice of name as almost any Ogre or Troll (or Human, or Erudite) SK will tell you....

Just food for thought..

Karana Only Please

It pisses me off some to see cool items that I can't use because I'm not of the right diety, now we get a cool Karana item and its open to all. what gives V?

Aye, I agree, mostly because of all the storyline behind Writ of Karana when Jaggedpine was added, but really if you look at this from a roleplaying point of view... you kill someone that worships Karana in his plane (ok I know Karana is in BoT but it's still his plane)and loot something Karana only to worship him. IMO this should be a quest item Karana only, sorta like Gloves of Eartcrafting like Tunare druids get.
Then again since it doesn't give any info on this for all I know it is a quest item :p In which case this post was pointless
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 30 2002 at 5:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ya this should be karana only thats a bunch o crap
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 27 2002 at 10:55 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is how you make a 500k item.

I follow Tunare, so not that big to me, but if it has a diety name (and I know there are examples that show this not to be true) it should be useable by peeps who follow that diety. Only useing rangers as an example, but this is an item that should be useable of the Karana rangers (and anyone else who follows Karana. At this point in the game (I am not there) a high end ranger does more damage with his swords than with his bow (except for 2 min out of every 72 when he/she is using /di trueshot) Past lvl 60, meelee goes up enough to surpass bows.

Hello...wis AND dex.... sure i cant use abow with this..on 2nd ac...and prime/2ndary...bah...u casters can keep it! I thought it was range!!!!

This is an awesome item...I don't care if it caster only...dex rocks and I want !!!

Unless it's wrong, I don't see any RNG on there...
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 30 2002 at 12:29 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) IDIOT! He was stating that Karana Rangers should be able to use it.

I really hate to be the bad guy here- but I agree that this should be Karana only. First off- the Writ of Karana is actually a very important "bible" that Karana has given to the Unkempt. Yeah I think it's awesome to see anyone with this item- but I think it should stay based on Karana as well as a lot of the planer based equipment, weapons and armor.

My PC is a Ranger that does follow Karana, but even if ranged- this should totally go to a priest class instead of any melee.

If you read some of the jagegdpine quests- a lot of the threads link up to this and history of this. the Half-elves, and the unkempt. I just wish VI would tie up the ends to tie everything together.

One order to use this, a ranger would have to sacrifice about half their damage. It's primary/secondary only.
