    The magic glove is the offhand. The datamined awakening weapon is a Greatbow.

    Crossbow mainhand.
    Magic Glove offhand.
    Greatbow Awakening.

    Again, this could still change. The offhand was originally a sword.

    I feel like everything from this point is permanent . Seems like they want him to be a Archer. My only concern is Pearl Abyss messing with the Greatbow aesthetics. I'm not liking the wrist crossbow.. I just wanna see a normal Greatbow with a heavy weapon feeling.

    I also think a regular crossbow would be better, but I am not against the arm crossbow. I also want a HEAVY feeling Greatbow. I want feel the impact of each shot, not just the usual pew pew pew of the Ranger's bow.

    That being said, PLEASE do not put recoil or forced movement on "stationary" awakened skills. The forced movement is one of the most annoying things about Ranger's bow. You cannot stand on something and shoot from it because the Ranger will step backwards off of it like an idiot. Don't get me wrong. Ranger is bae, but she's an idiot.

    Yea . Arm crossbows arent really my thing.. it feels more fitting for unique weapon costume or something. Im a huge nerd for historically accurate weapons. My only expections are great type weapons. If they nail the greatbow's impact feeling and looks, any problems I have with Archer is gone lol

    I didn't think of thatt... Man I know how you feel . I wish force movement didn't push people of edges (similar to how Sprint or caution will keep the player from falling of f) or yea it gets completely removed. Forced movement is a bad feature.


    *Nods*

    No disagreements. Ranger is easily a top tier waifu lol

    I seriously cant wait for this class. I really hope the Greatbow stays as their awakening weapon. I need a fully ranged archer in my life.

    The arm crossbow is a little awkward, but so long as the greatbow is spot on I am fine with it.

    Next thing we know, greatbow is mounted on the back pointing straight upwards, forcing the wielder to bow down in a crouch position to fire arrows, almost like a ballistae!

    why would someone prefer a male ranger over a female waifu ranger.... i dont get it.

    better make an adult tamer instead = more money. not everyone wants to play an underaged loli girl.
     
  11. You don't have to get it, it's ok.

    Mm me personally. I don't pick my mains based on my attraction. Otherwise id probably main any female classes minus sorc or tamer lol

    I do prefer to main male characters tho. It feels more immersive designing a character in my imagine and I don't get people hopes up by being a gril trap

    Also a characters playstyle is hugely important to me. Im a fan of high skill cap classes that are assassin's,bow users or duel wielders . That being said , I want to try Archers kit :D a lot of people will hard reroll him if he's OP tho. So might as well learn his kit regardless to fight him
