                                      -=Introduction=-

This build is good for MVP Hunting (Solo and or in a party), PVE, Instance Quests, and Farming, etc.

This build focuses on massive Arrow Storm damage and good hitlock ability.

If your just starting here at LimitRO and would want your first character to be a Ranger. One of the 
best char for farming stuffs is a Ranger, even with pretty basic gears it can earn enough stuffs to
progress to other chars or maximize its potential. 

First off I would suggest that you start with a basic Farming Ranger Build and work your way up to 
an Intermediate Level Farming Ranger Build - from here you can progress to the intermediate level
MVP Ranger Build and finally reaching the End-Game Arrow Storm MVP Ranger Build.

!Quick Tips: Quick Leveling Guide by Zohan The Legendary Jade Dragon Ranger

   1. Accomplish the Novice Training Academy (NTA) to get cool items and basic gear that you can use.
      Three important stuffs that you can get among others:
           - Mercenary (Egnigem Cenia or Doppelgangger)
           - Red Envelop (To buy basic gears)
           - Agility Class Basic Gear (Odin’s Blessing, Falcon Muffler, Fricco’s Shoes)
   2. After successfully finishing the NTA you will be warped to the LimitRO Group HQ Map. Look for
      Admiral NPC, he has many player options that you will be using very often (I hope you would 
      remember him from your NTA journey). Beside him will be Warper Babe, she would warp you to 
      different maps that are available in her option.
   3. Open your inventory and consume 1 of your mercenary, at novice level one of the safest place to
      level will be Ant Hell Dungeon Level 1. Talk to warper babe and your option would be like this:
      Dungeons > Ant Hell > Dungeon 1. Type this @command to your chat box to loot all items to sell
      later:    @autoloot 100     - always sell your picked up loots and save the rare ones that you
      may use later, just so that you can have starting zeny.
   4. Let your Mercenary do the hard work for you at this time. Level until you get Job Level 9, enough
      to change job as an Archer. Special Tip! Press Alt+R to open Mercenary Window, click on Skill. 
      Put the [Bash Skill] of your Mercenary on yor [F1] Function Slot. This way you can force your
      Mercenary to use this skill on your specified target. Always monitor if you have active EXP+
      status on you, use your battle manuals accordingly. Put all your STATS to VIT (RESET LATER)
   5. Talk to Admiral to change your job from a Novice to and Archer. Your next map would be from 
      Warper Babe: Dungeons > Moscovia > Les Forest    - put your fly wings on your [F2] Funtion Slot
      almost all of the monsters here are passive except for the MANTIS, be careful of it while your     
      low in level, TELEPORT if it gets near. BASH BASH BASH your way to LEVEL, remember to loot all
      and sell all. If you have gained enough BASE and JOB Level you can return to Admiral at LimitRO
      Group HQ or any other Town of your choosing to CHANGE JOB and for HP SP HEAL and AGI BLESS BUFFS.
   6. If you've reached the Sniper Job Level, its time to pick up the pace and you next leveling map
      will be:   Dungeons > Moscovia > Dungeon Level 3  ### - be vey careful on this map, all monsters
      here are agressive, there is a particualr monster here that you may want to hunt even at this
      early stage. This monster is the Mavka, hunt and level your way around here until you get to 
      change job into a Ranger. Special Tip! If your VIT STAT is filled up full to 99, your next stat
      to fill will be AGI, at this point in time you are more on the surviving side of leveling so 
      don't worry you can re-stat accordingly with the help of Admiral.
   7. By the time you have reached the Final Change Job to RANGER Class you would have enough zeny for
      starting gears. I would also suggest to at least make a mechant so that you can also take 
      advantage of the overcharge skill. At this point you can already start your journey through the
      game and get sronger by each passing day.

Intermediate Level Farming Ranger Build: A little upgrade from the beginner gear that you can acquire
at first, these can be obtained one by one by levelling and farming at the same time. This setup is also
very versatile as this can also be your starting - intermediate Ranger build. The gears I have listed
here are good references for both Arrow Storm (AS, best AOE Damage) Type and Hitlock Crit Type Ranger.

Special Tip! I would suggest that you go with the AS Type for Farming, as it is the most efficient way
to kill a group of monsters at once with high damage output than picking them up one by one.

   c. STR Stat needs to be always divisible by 5 to get 1 Stat Atk.
   d. LUK Stat needs to be always divible by 3 to get 1 Stat Crit.

Special Tip!

   To reach max aspd and damage you may use consumables boost items eg. Awakening Potion, Celermaine Juice, 
Guarana Candy, +6/+7/+10/+20 Foods, Box of Resentment, Aloevera, etc.. Right now you can also go with the 
Donation Speed Level 3 Gemstone (Aspd+1), this is an awesome gemstone to get because of its versatility with
this you can save a lot of AGI Stat points that you can redistribute to other stats that can boost damage, 
however if you really want the max damage output then Destruction Level 3 Gemstone +  Almighty Level 3 Gemstone
are the best combo option – this is if you can reach max aspd with foods and potions, etc.

Hi! What path of stats should i take as a hunter?

Just raise the usual. Dex for damage and agi for aspd. You won't be a hunter more than half an hour anyway. With the right leveling method you could become ranger in an hour or so. Pre-3rd class builds/stats are normally skipped entirely.

Hi,

Thanks so much for creating the guide.  Very very useful.  I am looking at the Intermediate Setup part, particularly for hunting/farming purposes.

I have some questions, some of which are a bit noobish sorry.  But I hope you guys won't mind me asking:

1.  Autumn Headband.  We can only do this quest once, right?  How do people get around with +7/+9 Autum Headband when there's a chance of breaking?  I tried upgrading mine, and it broke at +5. :D
1.a.  How do I get this? Essence of Evil STR Level 3.  It's the first time that I saw it.  Also, can an Autumn Headband contain both Essence of Evil and a Card?

2.  +7 Great Big Crossbow [2].  ex: EA1 EA2 {Expert Archer, Sharp, and or Crit Enchants}
Same question with #1.  I guess people really do risk a lot by enchanting those stuff and then upgrading it after.  How much do these cost nowadays (those +7 with enchanted ones?)

3.  I'm about to Google this one but I might as well ask:  How do I get those Shadow Armors?

----

On a personal note, I find hunting with Rangers really superb.  The only thing that does not make it enjoyable is that:
a.  I die, a lot.  And so whenever I farm, I had to return to Asgard every 3-5mins or so just to get the full HP/Buffs again.
b.  The ArrowStorm cooldown is too long.  Was there a change in the cooldown within the past few months, or was my hiatus just long?

Last time I played, I was farming Stones in Thanatos tower while occassionally doing Bifrost quests (e.g. Wandering Dragon) to earn Zeny.  Anything more than that is a lot harder (I die a lot).  
Now that I am back, I want to take it up a notch and try to do harder solo-able instances.  And so I went to this thread to try building up my gears first.

Thank you! :)

------

Addition:

Just to give you guys more idea on my current status:  I started playing a Doram, and it was fun.  I tried hunting for his gears (the elegant ones, aka those which drop in Lasagna Dungeon 3).  My hunter is having really a hard time dealing damage and taking hits in there, and coupled with a low drop rate, I don't find it enjoyable.

1. Autumn headband. There is a small guy beside the hat maker in Asgard who can reset your autumn headband quest for an enchant book. So you can do it twice per character. People just remake characters to make more autumn headbands though.

1.a. essence of evil (EOE) str is obtained from temple of demon god instance. There are a few prerequisite quests before it though, starting from flame basin. EOE acts like a card so you can only have either a card or EOE in your headgear. You can find the EOE for around 60m on the market.

2. Yes you can do the normal enchants which is a risk or you can use VIP coins to have  100% success rate enchant and whatever enchant you want at the godly enchanter in Asgard. Although this is very expensive and generally used for very very very high refined gears.

3. Shadow armor is exchangeable with battleground badges. Join the battlegrounds with @joinbg A/B/C and collect badges to exchange for shadow gear.

For farming. Try to get a hunter fly carded bow for lifesteal. Or get a rideword hat for hp and sp leech.

I see!  Thank you very much.

1.  I backread a bit and there was a post about making lots of rangers to farm Mora Coins.  Maybe this is possible for Autumn Headband.  After all, it's not that hard to level to 100 anymore.

1.a.  Thank you for the info.  I'll research a bit more.

2.  Thanks.  The VIP Coin to have 100% Success Rate at Godly Enchanter is something new to me.  I'll look into that.

3.  Thanks!

Thanks for the help :)

Shard and Gemstone are from when you enchant them, you will be able to choose whichever you want(like tool dealer list).

Star Stone are from cash shop from Star Stone box.

Hi. Just a question regarding the Big Crossbow. I've always used a +6 Elven Bow + Arrows but just recently bought a +8 Big Crossbow. I was Arrow Storming at around 70k damage before then I tried the Big Crossbow. But my AS damage is still the same. What gives??

Were you using Elven Arrows with your Elven Bow before? If you use both, then there's a +50% ranged damage bonus. Using a gxbow at below +8 with any arrows is on par with a +8 Elven Bow+Elven Arrows when it comes to Arrow Storm damage.

OH. Yes I was using Elven Bow + Elven Arrow combo. It did not occur to me that the 50% ranged bonus also applies to AS, and that the 70k damage I was doing was my base damage.

And I thought I'd start doing 90k AS damage with the gxbow 😭

Thanks a lot!! Now I understand!
