    I must speak out Armando 's name once again ... and his false claims.

    Dude ... it was not my intention to compare my vs your build ... I was only using screens from my build so you can notice some facts like:
    1. you already have crafted all your gear and upgraded to level 55 ... you have very small room for improvement. Opposite to you I have my build with old pre-R155 crappy items and have very large room for improvements. That means with my method I will always achieve higher DPI than you.
    2. When balancing between attack speed, damage and critical damage ... higher (within calculated limits) attack speed and damage are more important for rangers (even for 1h SWs) than max or very high critical damage. Just make one calculation you will get that by yourself. Decrease the crit damage and increase the attack speed to 1.77/8 ... you will get higher DPI than you have ATM.
    3. Attack speed is more important for rangers than the other classes (unless they are 1h) ... because they can play with 2H weapons ... rangers only have 1h.
    4. If this troll above (I will greet him later in my post) my post is agreeing with you and you follow his play style ... that doesn't mean that is the right choice. The fact is there are many possibilities ...even your and my philosophy can lead to same outcome if built right. Everything depends on the skills you are using.
    Read the quote ... it was referring to GoPs only.

    That been said ... you don't need to turn hostile ... I never did it at first place :D
    Best regards from Trakilaki.

    Hello Mr. Troll.
    I find your arguments and playing style very similar to one Ultra player from Heredur server. Perhaps you are him?
    I am asking the mods to check your account ... and see if any relations there.
    Maybe you censored the name because it is your toon and you are hiding behind another forum account.
    Yes I am playing PVP only for Gilded Clovers from DQs. Does that mean I can't see how broken PVP is ATM? Does that mean I must play only PVP so I can notice the differences? Of course not ... even if I am playing for DQ ... I can notice the irregularities at once. More bugs and exploits than EVER. Everyone one shot everyone ... one shot damage bigger than player's HP. Of course in this broken world only the high damage matters. But I am speaking in terms of well balanced and almost flawless arena ... like it used to be.
    That is true ... to some point. It is true that one would have to spend a lot more essences with that build ... but essences doesn't matter ... you can always farm them.

    @trakilaki: there is no hostility, fact is that I know what i lose using a piece instead of another, i play since two years but still I'm well aware of the game mechanical: is a cost I'm willing to pay for reasons I've already explained (mainly to use the same w.adornement in both pve and pvp, since I set myself on daily bases to play and spare hundreds of gold is a big deal to me).

    We are back to the first main point: i dont care to have more speed, even if is boosting my dpi, cause dpi is a useful instrument, but is just a mere indicator. To me speed is the most sacrificable stat (in pve), and my tests are fulfilling my expectation, so I'm staying on this route...

    The only improvement (other than reorganise the crit dmg enchantements to use GFW) I feel needed is bigger gems, but of course is going to be a long road, or an expensive one.

    In the end let's just agree to disagree (friendly like a copule of opponent school of thought philosopher), cause we are not and we will not move from this impasse, and conversation is pointless cause none of us is will move from his (valid) ideas.

    Ps: didn't get the Armando part...

    How is my ranger?
    I know, i need a lot of work to do with my noob ranger xD (i'm free and i don't have much time to play...)
    I can't get a better long bow or torso with % dmg :oops:
    I can solo lvl 2 but lvl 3 is too much for me xD
    I'm farming and doing the events solo because i can't get a group...
    Please give me some tips about how to improve my little ranger xd
    PD1: The cloak is lvl 2...
    PD2: Sorry for my english... :oops:

    Well, try getting into a nice guild.
    That will boost your chances of getting into a group, so you will be able to run Fatals and events for better chances at overall improvement.

    My other forum account is currently banned, not much about hiding here. I even mention my name in previous posts, its not a secret that this is my 2nd forum acc, an action i had to take I sometimes take the risk of getting banned with my real (ultra)forum acc :D

    To address your claims, rest assured this is not my toon. I havent farmed for 2 months, this means my toon is far away from having items and stats like this one above. One could say i helped him a little bit when he had decision to make. But this is mainly the result of his work and game mechanic knowledge. He hasnt posted here for quite a while, and i wont mention his name without his agreement. Btw, there is also still alot of room for improvement in this toon :)

    I'll address your other points later this evening when im done with work.

    Don't worry it is nothing related to you ... he knows exactly what I am talking about :D
    You are doing fine ... be patient and keep farming and crafting everything will come with time.


    Can someone bump this thread so i can post again? :D

    love the fact that you have two rings of death, i have the feeling not many people use them nowerdays. Seeing that gives me a bit of a nostalgic feeling of the lvl 45 days

    Ok so this first picture is how i left my ranger hanging before i decided to change my class to a DK.
    Now after 3 months i started playing my ranger again i did some "improvements" on dps. My luck with gold lines on longbows is so bad that i only got 2 of them in this 3 months of playing :/
    I hope i am doing a good job because as noobs as everybody thinks rangers are i actually enjoy him the most out of the 4 classes.

    Well, he has one T2 and one T3 (plus more, I guess, as he's onto making that first one T3 as well). That's a lotta rings/Mortis runs xD.

    Not necessarily, you just need to speed run to the Death Knight boss in the Ocean of Bones, he might have sucky drop rates compared to Mortis, but you can do quite a lot of runs once you get the hang of it, thus, improving your overall chances of getting RoD drops, also, I think pretty much everyone can run it solo, as opposed to Mortis.

    Anyone who has their eyes set on a T3 RoD should be able to at least solo Mortis I and maybe II, but you are right that that one knight is easier and faster for most. Personally, I still think that the RoD is over rated and crafted crit damage rings would be way more beneficial for a RA.

    But in any case, that'd still mean A LOT of runs xD.

    I rarely kill Mortis ... I am killing the mini bosses in q6 m1+m2.
    When I farm for RoD ... I am usually doing ~1000 runs per day :D

    Anyway ... small update on my stats.
    Upgraded my gear using that free Deluxe premium. After taking all the GoPs from my gear ... it turned out i have something like 300M.

    1000 runs per day? Do you live in another planet where there is more than 24 hours per day?

    Holy moly. That damage, speed, crit % and crit damage are insane. I don't think anyone can handle you in an arena.

    I am usually doing 100-200 runs ... depending on my mood.

    But actually you don't have to live in another planet to do 1000 runs per day. One run in average takes 1:00 - 1:30 min. that is 40 -60 runs per hour ... 960 - 1440 runs per day :p

    while all the other players are farming that boring q3 m1 i am farming the knight ... when I get bored I do Q6 Knight + Priest runs.
    I don't play the arena ... i only do it when i get gilded clover from DQ.
    Which is once in 3 months.
