    Hi i am a newbie. I have a very easy (or very hard,it depends) question. Top players play mainly 2h with parallel world and events uniques. So an original solution for my ranger could be searching for uniques that do not belong to pw or events. I like short bow.Could you please suggest me(if you want and have good heart to do it) best uniques with 1h short bow and shield(buckler)build, avoiding parallel world and event uniques. I would like a tank ranger,good also in near fight,speed above damage(i am not a damager op,i prefer equilibrium and having more defence and speed than op attack and crit). Thank you. Good evening.

    Hi i add that if possible you can avoid cube sets. But Emilia items that sells for gold are ok. Thank you again!

    Oh man. Okay... :D Not a very good idea, but whatever, let's do it!

    Build 1:
    Weapon: Power of the Alliance (longbow, but fits well in a tank build) - from Khalys in SND (requires materia cores however)
    Shield: Beast - worldly drop, from anything (requires materia cores, probably due to a bug)
    Adornment: Ornamentation of the Dunes - from Asar, choose the one of your liking
    Amulet: Necklace of the Dunes - from Asar, choose the one of your liking
    Cloak: Duplicitous Trophy - crafted from the skin element dropped from M'Edusa in SND on mode inf1+
    Belt: Yachak's Awakening - worldly drop
    Ring 1: Valor of the Aliance (would suggest Artaya's Ring of Life, but avoiding PW)
    Ring 2: Vigilance of the Alliance (would suggest a second Artaya's Ring of Life, but avoiding PW)
    Helmet: The Legendary King's Legend - Secret Lair of Andermight
    Pauldrons: The Legendary King's Majesty - Secret Lair of Poison
    Torso: The Legendary King's Fortitude - Secret Lair of Combat
    Gloves: Yachak's Insight - worldly drop
    Boots: Yachak's Way - worldly drop

    Build 2:
    Weapon: Deep Sea Claw Bow - M'Edusa in SND
    Shield: Deep Sea Carapace Quiver - ditto
    Adornment: Coral Arrow of the Deep - ''
    Amulet: Deep Sea Star Amulet - ''
    Cloak: Duplicitous Trophy - '' (crafted actually, like said earlier)
    Belt: Yachak's Awakening - worldly drop
    Ring 1: Deep Sea Chitin Ring - M'Edusa in SND
    Ring 2: Artaya's Ring of Life - Q4 (sorry, couldn't think of anything good enough from SND)
    Helmet: The Legendary King's Legend - Secret Lair of Andermight
    Pauldrons: The Legendary King's Majesty - Secret Lair of Poison
    Torso: The Legendary King's Fortitude - Secret Lair of Combat
    Gloves: Yachak's Insight - worldly drop
    Boots: Yachak's Way - worldly drop

    So here you go. Two builds almost fitting your requirements. However, keep in mind that with the CE looming (24. November it'll be on live servers), it is a bad time to start any sort of build. Enjoy what we have for now, and we'll see what comes after the CE.

    What about Bow of Destruction from Myrdosch? Has 1.00 base attack speed + additional attack speed enchantment; decent crit rate base + increase crit rate enchantment; fire resistance and I think more crit rate (double check on that) as a weapon bonus.

    Feels like a short bow speed-wise, but gives you the concentration reduction of a long bow.

    Drops fairly often, presumably on all difficulty levels (I'm using a Tier III [Fatal difficulty] bow on one of my alt toons).

    You don't care about enchantments except for a levelling build, perhaps sometimes early at cap level. Enchantments are subject to pristine core crafting and can be changed anytime.

    Make your mind. You said you prefer defence and speed over damage and crit, you got that. :D

    yes, but he's a self-proclaimed newbie, looking for a leveling build / early cap level solution … he's not ready for crafting.

    I don't have much experience with short bows, but based on the statistics of the Deep Sea Claw Bow one of my alt-rangers has in his locker, the Bow of Destruction gets you ~double the damage at ~10% to 18% lower attack speed (but that's higher than most long bows and siege bows), plus the benefit of crit rate (with the fire resistance thrown in as a passive extra defensive bonus).

    And don't undervalue the 20% concentration reduction feature which might give him one more precision shot, or allow for a exploding arrow a couple seconds sooner, or let him blade dance through or away from a dense mob when he's low on HP.

    Sure, he says he doesn't need tons of damage .. but the game won't let him ignore that aspect of his build. This bow gives some defense (fire resistance), concentration reduction (typically to increase frequency of attack, but can be used in an escape), and significantly more damage, while only giving up a small amount of attack speed (depending on the enchantment stats). He'll need that damage if he wants to blade dance through mobs as part of his tanking strategy.

    Then the answer is... equip anything you find along the way.

    Well if you don't want to use PW or Event gear. Then it doesn't matter really. All regional gear is pretty much the same, not enough difference in it to make a difference. Just play the maps the hardest level you can do them. Get what you get.
