    Default Is it better not to equip sword for Ranger

    I just started playing Rift and I'm using ranger as my character. When enemy get too close, it automatically switched to dagger/sword melee. Is it better if I just remove the sword to force my character to use bow only? Does that affect my stats?

    Yes, a while back they made a Rogue's DPS depend on the stats you have in your main hand, so equip your best sword/dagger/mace in your main hand.

    Even though as a Ranger/Marksman you use a Bow/Gun the main hand will affect your DPS so don't take it out.

    yeah i noticed this too while leveling the other day. it's just glitched graphics that's probably never been fixed. you need to equip all items for the stats otherwise you'll get pummeled. you are still doing ranged attacks, however. just play like it's an optical illusion. =]
