    RNG Ammo

    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.

    Update:
    Ammo market is dead at Ragnarok. :/

    Why not just do like ever other MMO out there and do away with ammo all together. we could keep the ammo types like bloody bolts acid blots but just make it so it does not use it all you need it 1 in to slot to use that type

    Or perhaps change it so that normal /ra doesnt consume arrows, but barrage/WS does.

    Say, turn them into something like spells. Get the ammo and have infinite use of it. RNG and COR are the most expensive jobs because of this, besides maybe NIN. That or NPC shops need to sell the ammo at a cost that can actually be affordable to players.

    at least have materials purchasable, crafters use ammo, food and ninja tools as their income source. That's also why so many rng, nin and cor level crafts to make their own ammo. But the scarcity of materials for end-game ammo is a problem. So is the lack of market for end-game ammo on the crafter's side. Why should a crafter keep putting the same stuff up on the AH every 3 days on the off chance that this go round a player might buy a single stack of his Antlion arrows-after he's already paid 3 weeks worth of AH fees?

    Even bazaaring it is a problem, unless you put it on a mule when you are AFK this stuff takes space in your character's active inventory, and if you want to actually play your character you are probably not going to be in an area where people are shopping for ammo! And not everyone has 2 seperate systems and 2 seperate discs to dual box a mule to just sit there hoping a customer decides to walk by.

    I partialy agree with this. I do believe all ammo should share the same shaft. I do not believe we should have magical unlimited ammo.

    I always thought it would be nice if you could either use ammo or not use ammo. For example if you choose not to use ammo you can still fire your bow/gun/xbow but the +DMG you get doesn't have an additional effect/stat and follows a linear pattern based on job level. If you do chose to use ammo you get a higher +DMG boost from the ammo and all the other benefits that come from that ammo slot. So by not using ammo you get unlimited ammo but less damage and whatever other benefits.

    Ammo is a huge issue. I just finished Harrier+2 and am having a terrible time finding Ruszor/antlion arrows. Atleast make them synergy only because woodworkers don't exist.

    They need to just add a npc that sells all ammo types at a cheap price. It's really sad when having the most current ammo makes a player seem like a elite RNG.
