I've been wanting to play ranger again but everytime i think about ammo cost and availability it just makes me wonder, why is ranger ammo so rare, expensive and requires a very high skill to make?
99 Dweomer bullet costs ~50k, requires Alchemy ~80 Smithing ~50 and on top of that Synergy skill, Antlion Arrows are on a similar condition as they require woodworking ~80 high bonecraft and synergy.
the real problem isn't really the skill required only but also the trouble rangers/crafters have to go through to make Arrowheads/Ingots/Boltheads then synthesizing them again to make the ammo because nobody else does. some materials come from campaign/woe only, some others are just ridiculous to get.
Maybe if we had a NPC that sells ammo or/and Arrowheads/Boltheads this wouldn't be a problem.
Ammo market is dead at Ragnarok. :/
