    There is a section about general gearing to farm ancient dungeons near the bottom where I go over decent chronicles sets + unqiues, this is not solely a Gracia guide.

    A change since the quest legendary patch: you can opt for a sky liquid (level 90 legendary revolver) with 5pc Sea God if you wish, but Gracia will outshine it if you have any better Revolver than sky liquid (any epic revolver level 85 or higher)
    Pretty much all of the Ranger discussion has been about "Should I build Gracia" or "Is this class still expensive and what should I do for gear?" so I'm here to tell you what you should get and how you should get it. Including the much sought after:
    GRACIA SET

    What is the Gracia set?
    It is a farmable legendary set that is pretty much the bare minimum for Anton. It takes a total of 20 days (or less, depending on events and Gabriel luck) to get each individual armor piece.

    What does the Gracia set look like?

    Is it possible to get this set in leather?
    The Gracia set comes in all armor types. That means every class can get this set with their preferred armor mastery, in our case it would be Leather.

    Are there any other better free sets than this?

    NOPE. This is the best armor in the game for us outside of epic sets. Plus this set is FREE and involves NO RNG to get.

    How do I get this amazing set?
    To get this set you must do the daily quest for Noire Ferra given by the NPC Grandis. Upon completion of this quest you get 20 or 30 Impostor Reports which are used to buy pieces of the Gracia set. There are two versions of this quest, [Requiem] and [Ancient]. The [Requiem] quest gives an extra 10 more Impostor Reports a day but to do this you need to clear EX: Noire Ferra instead of the regular version of Noire Ferra. I'd recommend doing the EX version as it speeds up the process and the dungeon is only slightly harder.

    How many Impostor Reports does each piece cost?
    Each piece of armor costs 600 Impostor Reports:

    Each Accessory costs 600 Impostor Reports:

    Each Special Equipment costs 800 Impostor Reports:

    Are there any strategies to help me farm the set?
    To complete this set in the most efficient way you should segment the farming into sections of 6 days. Every 6th day you should do this dungeon twice. This is because you get 10 Impostor Skin Tissue from each run of EX: Noire Ferra. So it should look like this:
    Day 1: Run 2 times, you have 20 Impostor Skin Tissue. Turn in the quest and you have 8 Tissue left.
    Day 2: Run 1 time, you have 18 Impostor Skin Tissue. Turn in the quest and you have 6 Tissue left.
    Day 3: Run 1 time, you have 16 Impostor Skin Tissue. Turn in the quest and you have 4 Tissue left.
    Day 4: Run 1 time, you have 14 Impostor Skin Tissue. Turn in the Quest and you have 2 Tissue left.
    Day 5: Run 1 time, you have 12 Impostor Skin Tissue. Turn in the quest and you have 0 Tissue left.
    Day 6: Run 2 times, you have 20 Impostor Skin Tissue. Turn in the quest and you have 8 Tissue left.
    Day 7: Run 1 time, you have 18 Impostor Skin Tissue. Turn in the quest and you have 6 Tissue left.

    What pieces should I get?
    You want to fill out your Gracia pieces in slots where you don't have decent epic equipment. Since 90 cap has been released your options for great individual epic pieces to mix with Gracia has expanded massively. Below I have listed the good individual 85 epic pieces. If I tried to list all the good 90 pieces this list would be way too long, so I recommend asking in the Ranger General Discussion if the piece you have is good or not (or you can shoot me a PM with the item name and ill be glad to answer you). Note that any level 85 sub equipment or magic stone that you get from level 90 hells is considered a good epic.

    Since 90 cap has hit, there are now no skeleton builds for Gracia slots, it is purely up to what epic items you have.

    A 3/5 90 epic set is enough to beat the Gracia set.

    What is the most geared on Ranger I can get without spending ANY money on this game? What could I do with this setup?
    This is as far as you can get on Ranger without doing a single hellmode in this game. With this you could probably pub Anton raid, but you will most likely need connections as you will be competing with people with the same/better setups than you have. There are plenty of events to give you demon invites so you can run a good amount of hellmodes, getting a few decent epics should not be an issue. Note that this setup would be considered outdated by most, with the new setups being 6pc gracia + good off slot epics.

    I can't seem to solo EX: Noire Ferra. What kind of gear do I need?
    All you need is a 6pc chronicle set and a decent weapon realistically.

    Since the changes to OV, getting a chronicle setup would be easier than getting halidoms. It now takes a week or two to finish a chronicle set and the OV dungeons are significantly easier. Most people use a 6pc Standard Procedure and then use various other equipment to fill the slots. I would recommend a Devastating Revolver, a De Los Glory, a Doomed Bullet, and an Alicias Tear and then putting whatever decent equipment item you have in the offslot. (The picture has a 7pc set only because it is up to you what slot will be filled, 7 pieces is not good.)
    [​IMG]

    The Revolver is called "Devastating Revolver" and it is dropped by Iron Aim or you can buy it with Oblivion Meteors.
    The Sub Equip is called "Doomed Bullet" and you can buy it for around 2mil in the Auction Hall.
    The Magic Stone is called "Alicia's Tear" and you can buy it for around 5mil in the Auction Hall.
    The Necklace is called "De Los Glory" and you can buy it for around 5mil in the Auction Hall.

    It is recommended you reinforce the Devastating Revolver to +10.

    If you are STILL having issues with EX: Noire Ferra, consider partying with friends or guildmates or purchase runs from people.

    *Consider farming for a Great Glory Bracelet as you farm for Gracia. If you get it swap out the Devastating Revolver for a Halidom one.

    The boss unique has +11% smash damage which makes it similar to a Requiem revolver, only you don't have to farm for 50 days to get it. If you already have a higher source of smash damage you can use a +10 Halidom.

    You could probably get away with running a full set of normal purple Halidoms which you can easily farm for. I'd recommend partying with another person however. Would make it go a lot smoother.

    thoughts on epic farming and what epic to get? Also the pros and cons of Silver Bullet(SB) vs Ranger Rod(RR)?
     
  7. use what you can get

    generally, lord of ranger beats silver bullet, but there are some exceptions (anton 30% smash bracelet, natural guardian proccing, scud genocide)

    good armor sets are dg, tact, mana vortex, natural guardian, assassin's, full plate. other sets are usable to a degree but might not come out better than gracia

    Keep all usable epics you can find even if they seem awful, there is going to be another epic rebalance in korea so what seems like trash now might actually become really godly.

    That's his gun, silver bullet.
    The gun gives you infinite silvers as a buff.

    Is this Possible With precise fire? or are you better off with Standard Procedure
     
  14. Dont bother with a chronicle set for damage. Noire ferra is easy enough with halidoms so start with gracia.

    standard is better, you only need 6 pieces of it too.

    its pretty easy to get a 6pc with the new OV as you are farming noire.

    Edit: Since you already have 9pc just use that.
