Rangers are awesome. I just rolled a new one as my first character on green myself. One of my very favorite classes.

My first char was a ranger as well. It’s a fairly hard class to solo without decent gear. Luckily a lot of good stuff is dirt cheap these days (silver swiftblade is basically free). I soloed to 60 without a fungi, woodsman staff to 58. I invested in a token bracer which really helped once I was done snare/fearing animals to 49. Grobb and HK bow-rooting stuff dead.

I’d keep the faith or if you are concerned make a necro as your first class to like 40 (or will go fairly quick). Then dump the savings into the ranger.

Rangers get hate here because they aren’t Luclin-good. Also a lot of tropes that are funny but totally accurate. With gear they do solid damage, they are extremely flexible and fun if you practice the skills. Getting groups is a chore compared to a rogue but the journey is worth it.

Most important for a ranger are of course weapons and armor. For less than 100 plats you can get a full set of banded armor, that's "good enough" for a long time. For another 100 plats you can get pretty decent weapons, but supply varies. You should check east commons often when you have the plats.
Good luck getting that banded armor. I have sat in EC tunnels for 3 days trying to find someone to sell me some banded armor... no luck.
Vendors dont have any either as no one is making it anymore. Us new guys are just screwed lol.

It takes about 150-200 plat and about an hour to level blacksmithing and make your own.
