Quick story: My main at launch was a Ranger. 100% map clear, two max 400 crafting skills, the works. During the original Karka event when precursor weapons were dropping left and right I actually managed to snag The Lover, and despite being an ultra-casual player who had never gotten a legendary anything in his life, I embarked on a crazy plan to make The Dreamer. My entire guild helped me to get the mats needed (it wasn’t easy back then!), and I finally got that glorious stupid horsey bow. Left me completely broke, but whatever.
Shortly afterward Anet nerfed Shortbow Rangers (and significantly buffed the Longbow, which made SB even worse by comparison).. It pissed me off so much I took an ~8-year break from the game.
So now I’m back, and it seems Shortbow is still kinda awful for Rangers. However, I see that legendaries are no longer soul bound, so I can move it to another class. Unless I’m missing something, my only options are Thief and Revenant, right?
Help me put my awesome weapon to good use! If you had a legendary Shortbow, would you roll a new class to use it? Or should I hang it over the fireplace, and pretend I’m just another broke newbie?
