Well im a lvl 45 RNG now .. and i "Just" Boughtuz i need more RNG att ... i use 6 Diff rings and i macro em acording to what ammo im using .. i have a long macro for each diff bolt and arrow ... for example for Holy bolts i use +MND equipment, For arrows i use +STR and + RNG att .. and well the results show when u have 3 RNG's in 1 pt and they are outdamage by more than 20-30 per hit .. using yellow curry .. well is a lot of equipment .. but i think this ring is good 2
Could be good

Ieatcats, if the RNG takes hate, it is for one or both these reasons: the Tank sucks (and most likey NIN, lol j/k) or the RNG is being a moron and spamming arrows to fast (many RNG fail to realize, that with their high dmg output, their ranged attacks are much like BLM spells and need to be slightly spaced apart). I am 58 PLD, and RNG only take hate from me when the used ranged attack one right after the other non-stop.

Second, I kind of like this. My RNG is only 28, but if I had a NIN sub, a competant tank, and was hitting the mob often enough to remove R.Acc. rings, I'd consider using this. Yes, the -14 Def sucks. But as I said, if you have a good tank and you learn to control your blood lust, it's nice.
gimp rangers?

I just plainly agree with everyone else. This thing suxxorz and is not worth even 1 gil since Id prefer the most basic of the agi rings.

You really have to be kidding me. Are you Serious?

What, were they thinking RNG's would VOLUNTARIALY put this on, and avoid having to gimp them in the next update?

Gimp us already, and get out some REAL gear.....

I agree that the -14 defense sucks, but I "VOLUNTARIALY put this on" when I'm in a party and sub Ninja. I almost never take damage and it gives more attack than my Bowyer Ring(+3). I already have over +40 in RAcc., and not much +RDamage. Overall SE is just slapping us in the face. =(

I'm not sure what level you are, but later on you will take hate and at the very least want some defense. Your shadows will only protect you for so long with the gimp evasion. This ring is a POS. +5 ranged attack is almost nothing compared to the accuracy you can get from other rings.

what are you talking about?? if you take hate, either you or your tank suck. if "you" happen to be a blm or rng, then it done'st matter who your tank is, you suck. here's why:

YOU CONTROL YOUR DAMAGE OUTPUT. blm and rng are almost exactly the same in terms of damage dealing. you can at any time decide "i will now do so much damage so fast that I will take hate get killed." The obvious solution then is to simply not do that. As a rng or blm it's your job to "ride the hate line." That is, do as much damage as you can WITHOUT pulling hate. If you pull hate, then you're not doing your job well. (this rule can be relaxed *slightly* if you're buffed well, but in general if you pull hate you will tax the healers, thus lowering your potential to make xp chains.)

as far as rng. acc. vs. rng. atk.... a high level ranger can easily get +40 rng. acc. and I wouldn't be surprised if they could hit +60. The problem with this is that most rangers that have tested the diminishing returns of ranged accuracy seem to agree that more than +20-30 doens't help that much. If using strictly +rng acc. rings allows you to equip big +agi gear in other slots, then sure that sounds like a good idea. on the other hand, having rng. atk. gear with you (macros?) allows even greater flexibility with your damage output.

lol i have little more faith than that in people on our server... i think this will be one of the AH items we all look at on AH and think "hmm, i wonder if anyone actually uses this?"

I think these go for about 200-300k on Fairy server. I'm not sure I'd want it though to be honest, as a RNG/WAR my damamge is ample and I need all the defence I can get.
