What would minimum recommended Strength be for 220+ ranger? Currently with gear I'm at 1000 Strength and 1008 dexterity and wondering if should change it up to a bit less strength.

There really is no minimum amount at 220+. It heavily depends on your gear, do you have any dg? Edl weaps? High tier attack braces? There is so much that goes into it

You should base it off your attack, as well as your HP.

If you're capable of surviving during raids and don't get 1 hit from AoEs, and have a solid 11k+ attack with lixes, then you can dump in str.

Remember that damage doesn't matter if you're missing your shots. Especially divine damage from procs/offhand.

Nothing wrong with asking for advice.

Like Armo said, make sure you don't forfeit too much HP. Got to make sure you can survive long enough after an AoE and, if you draw aggro, at least a couple autos, so don't give up too much on that.

Dex needs some attention too so that your auto is effective. Hasted autos are a Rangers biggest help during a raid.

Edl helm, bp, pants, shoes. Dg gloves. Edl offhand Dl mainhand.
x2 mighty argent shield (120 vit 100 str 600 attack) 1 is hotswapped with sharp shot mord brace so lose the vit from one
x1 valour ring x1 majestic oblivion (70/70/700) x1 greater annointed (70/90/350/350) x1 reaper and runic valour neck
royal sureshot charm(80 str 120 attack +490 sharp shot)/skain bladeleaf charm(145 vit 250 attack) depending if lot of aoe or if raged/bolas killing
lvl 5 tier 4 wolf mount and spider pet
Usually I always have enough hp to survive at bosses (5.6k with sureshot misc but lose about 700 from hotswap brace) and 8.3k attack unlixed and around 10.5 lixed.

With 1000 strength and my gear I get 3627 damage and wondering if putting strength to 800 and dex to 1208 would be better maybe

It would be worth dropping str and boosting dex a bit yes

Ah... str. You are better off swapping gear for damage gear and dumping dex as u get better buffs and sharpshot also because the damage from a damage item (like misc) will be more valuable then str. Str dumping is just terrible after 900 cuz the plateu is too big.

If you can get 11k+ attack with 1000 str and like 5-7k hp, I’ll be impressed.
