I'm a bit confused. Are you going for melee or for bow? Maximize the melee/bow benefits according to how you want to play. You can always make an alternative set and use it in some occasions (i have a melee template that I'm using all the time, and an archery one for some keep fun)

How can you possibly manage moving all that extra stuff around Gear, when I played ranger I had 3-4 slots TOPS free in my bags at all times, potions, wood, siege, armor with charges and other items filled up everything for me. I couldnt take with me more than a Stardrop to max my AF shield, that was the only thing that fitted :)

I actually had problems summoning arrows, i.e. no space :p

But I keep most of my potions on my bb and i never carry wood/siege. All I'm really changing are: GoV->GSV, Scallars -> Mariasha's, Krojer's str -> dex, Volugron wrap -> krojer's dex, and a couple of armour items. I think it's about a page.

PS. With 340 str I have no problem carrying anything around also ;)

I found that you dont need to have max bow/melee bonuses to be effective, they just you that little edge and in regards to spec wise

should be iirc 39 pierce/CD/35 stealth/bow & 23 PF ( or there abouts)

@ Gear: would you mind sending me a couple of your old templates?

msn me at hardysbru@hotmail.com - ta in advance

I'll dig out my ranger template and post it later. Easy to get stuff which is nice

Not bad stats either, pierce melee

Using:
SOM, GSV, Fools, Battler for charge, BoS, rod, GS, heat weapons and mainhand is switchable (so no restrictions)
Bow on my temp is also switchable which is nice, its by all means nowhere near perfect.

Currently using broodmother fang + Heat offhand and that rocks, using immo bow aswell so the thrust resist proc on that works nicely with BMF.

BMF is uberly hard to get though
