View Full Version : Influence and rangers!?!?

08-08-2008, 11:49 AM
I have a friend who's getting into GS and wanted to ask me a few questions about STAT placement, he's going for long term cap growth rate so as not to worry about using a fixstat/tp's not earned throughout his career.

He will have plenty of help and any gear he needs along the way, my question is simply what would leaving a low IF stat effect?

I got all stats @ cap to 100 except I'm leaving IF low at 79, what would be my/his main concern about leaving this stat so low if any concern at all?

Thanks in advance to any helpful input given

The first thing I can think of is trading prices. You may lose like, an additional 1% to all sales the character makes with that stat instead of 100. You'd also have to pay 1% more. It's not a huge deal, but can certainly add up.

It's still a very tankable stat, and if you're worried about the sales loss, you should have a bard/empath gimp (which actually NEED INF) training trading.

Actually scratch that, the ranger's probably still the better choice for all your trading needs because of 650 - Assume Aspect: Lion.

Pretty much all rangers tank INF. The trading bonus from INF doesn't even come into play until you've got a certain number of Trading ranks.

Yeah I have someone that deals with all sales already with maxed trading so I didn't even take that into consideration.
