Are you insane? I have my myth (obviously) and maxed out arrow reclamation, I'm still burning through ~2000 arrows a raid night if i'm lucky. And anyone who would use conservation adorns is doing a poor job of playing their ranger, as a DPS class anyway. I guess if they are mostly RP'ing they would be fine.

I'd still like to see arrows converted into say, 'quivers' that act like food. Increase the ingrediants needed for each combine and make it so each use of one of these quivers provides arrows for x amount of time. Making it time based instead of object quantity based. At the very least increase the yields of arrow combines so people who want to adventure don't have to craft so much.

Well monday night i made sure I had a full quiver at the beginning of raids. I then used ACT to add up time in actual combat opposed to just saying I was using arrows for the entire raid time.

I figured out that I used roughly 34 arrows per minute.

I concur with Neiloch and Toranx,

When raiding HM for 4h30 I bring 2 spotted leather quivers (26 slots each so 5200 arrows per quiver).One with titanium field point arrows for trash, the other with spirit blessed field point arrows for names.By the end of the raid session the Titanium arrows quiver is empty and the Spirit blessed quiver is half depleted.

I have the 5 points in Arrow Reclamation and my unbuffed MA is 445, with various buffs it can jump to the 530-580 range, so it is hitting 6 times consistently (I am not even mentioning flurry and Aoe attack which enhance even more the arrow consumption). This MA range is more and more common for a raid ranger these days and it will be even more when crit mit is removed because we will then be able to readorn to more MA among other things.

That topic of endless quiver is like beating a dead old horse unfortunately but maybe a mechanic that makes sure that we spend 1 arrow even if we multi attack x6 would already be a plus. I made the cost bearable by making a lvl 90 woodworker, any ranger does at that point, so the idea that if we are given an endless quiver it would "endanger norrath economy" is a moot point. This arrow situation is just an annoyance.

I don't think they will remove ammo or add endless quiver ever. Even though its technically possible to enact a 'endless quiver' if you want to sacrifice adornment slots just so you don't have grief no other class has to go through for their basic auto attack.

It's gotten to the point where my ammo is really the only thing I dread seeing. I like all the other general mechanics in the game or have come to accept them, but every time I get excited to play that is instantly knocked down a few notches after I realize I am going to need AT LEAST 2500 arrows ready to go.

More than anything, ammo should be looked at simply because it is ZERO FUN in a VIDEO GAME. You find me 1 person who TRULY feels that managing, crafting or selling obsurd amounts of ammo is the absolute highlight of playing EQ2 and I will shut up forever about ammo.
