A Zealous Bow
A normal Bow for non-battle situations.
On caster's, get close and then use Broad Head Arrow and then Backfire, unless there are multiple caster's, in which case use BHA on one and backfire on the other. On warrior's, use Empathy. When they are below 50% health, begin to spam Needling Shot to activate the Dazed effect. Distortion is for defense and Troll Unguent is for healing. Against anyone, you can use Blackout but be sure to use Serpent's Quickness and then spam it whenever it is available. This is effective for taking down touchers(with additional backup to focus on damage).
Drop Distortion and use another ranger defensive stance(i.e. Whirling Defense).
