    Default So I just hit 50 on my rogue alt.

    And to my distraught I find out there's no good craftable bow. When I got my warrior, mage and cleric to 50 I had good weapons readily available through crafting. Rangers/Marksmen get left out of the equation it seems, why is that? Any particular reason why they decided to not add a bow/gun at the level of the daggers, claymore, staff and mace?

    Spined Compound Bow is the best craftable bow available IIRC and it's better than any non-epic t2 dungeon drop if it has the nimble/keen/shady prefix. But really it's super easy to spend 40 plat or whatever to get a Rune Carved Bow or Abyssal Musket, epic BoE drops from t2 instances that are very nearly BiS until you get into 10man or 20man content, only beaten out by a few very rare epic drops from t2 bosses.

    Thank you for this little piece of information, I did not know about these two. Might be because the AH on my server is pretty crap.

    Yeah, running t2s w\ my rogue I got NO ranged weapon drops from t1's and t2s i could use. I broke down and bought a shady spined compound bow @ AH for 19p after mistakingly buying a bow below it for 5-6p lol

    Just upgraded when I hit prestige 4 and got seditionists rifle.

    Default Darkening Deeps

    I've seen the Gedlo Dragon-Hunter's Bow drop several times in Darkening Deeps from the triumvirate bosses. Of course, this is while I was playing my Mage and before I started my Rogue, so I'm sure I will never see it again.

    On my sever (Shatterbone) there is almost always a few Spined Compound Bow on the broker that are fairly cheap. It's worth getting until you see a Rune Carved Bow on the broker. I'm guessing it's more common than the Muskett, or our sever has just been really unlucky on drops.
