My Rank has surpassed my Physical level, help!Follow

My main, Pug 30/27

Is it ok if I go straight to 50? because I find it difficult to fight mobs at my rank already

it's like my Rank and mobs are leveled but my stats are pretty much under.

So if I kept fighting mobs at my rank I'd still be ok but I need to fight mobs with higher ranks than mine to get more sp, however, if I do that I usually got my *** kicked

sorry about my English


P.S. one last question my brother's main is Archer but it's a very expensive job so he wants to play something else to farm first. The question is what's the must sub class for Archer?

all advises and suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks

You both should grab a DoL and DoH job, it will let you easily get some exp, and can provide some spare money for him.

As mentioned, you can look into getting DoH/Ls that support your main class and will get you exp/level which will disapear in next update anyway ....

What you can consider is getting a group of people around the same level which can complement each other, you will notice that the killing will be easier and SP gain will increase.

Specifically to your brother, he shold consider Botany, Carpentry to make his own arrows or just botany so he can then sell trade raw materials for arrows.

This. I wouldn't worry about it.

Also, at least until the update that eliminates physical levels, most of your power comes from your gear, not your stats. Attributes only have a minor influence on your performance, so being off a few points from maximum really doesn't matter much.

If you're struggling, then look into improving your gear. Make sure it's appropriate for your rank and class (if it's too high or off-class, it takes a performance hit and wears out faster).

Actually, somewhat depressingly, most of your power comes from rank, not gear. All the damage formulas in the game are currently heavily tied to rank differences. This is why a R50 THM will consistently nuke R35 enemies for ~1.8k but can't get anywhere near that against R50s and why mobs 30+ ranks above you will always one-shot you for over 2k damage.
