Crafted bow delays

    Has anyone else noticed the change in bow delays since GU61? Both the crafted longbow and shortbow now have a 9.0 second delay. I'm new to the class, playing just as an alt, but can anyone give me some guidance on how this will affect me as a lowbie? It seems to be detrimental since I don't have items with haste to speed up my auto-attack nor do I have enough combat arts to fill in the time between auto-attacks.
    Also, it doesn't make an ounce of sense to me as to why Rangers cannot cast their bow CAs on the move. Every other class I play can cast CAs on the move. Isn't this a class that needs to be mobile to survive while soloing?
    Thanks in advance for your help. :)

    Since I've returned, I've noticed the short bows and long bows have the same "ranged distance" (35m)???
    Are there no 45m bows anymore?

    Yeah, since 61 the short and long bows are the same except for the stats. Longbows are str/sta with +hate and short are agi/sta. Range, delay and DPS and damage range are all the same now.

    I guess they don't understand the mechanics of what a long bow and a short bow are!
    In the past, I'd give up a little DPS for that extra 10m! Oh well!
