Maybe making all the 3-1 classes have asininely long quests was their way of saying "See how much longer it takes you to job change than a 3-2? Well, you'll be seeing this kind of difference when you try to level it too."
Probably... The sorc jobchange is "spam an npc with ele stones until succeed". The warlock quest has battle part, hunting items part...
The sura quest is "hunt 100 wolves, hide in a corner". The bishop test is a bit longer (and unless they fixed it later, buggy)
The genetic quest is hunt 100 of this deadly monster: poison spore. I'm not sure of the mechanic jobchange though.
The royal guard test is... talk to npc, talk to npc, 5 minutes later, congratilations!. The rune knight test is... longer and has a wait time and used to bug...
Rangers level as fast if not faster than Fire Trap- Chasers, they tend to use the same gear with regard to HFC carded weapons and Rideword Hats and also same main skill for mobbing only they do more damage and have a mount which makes then round up mobs faster. RG's only level very fast if they have spend the extra time in making a Linker or spend a huge amount of RL money on Light Blues. RKs can level fast once they get DB but until then they level slower than some of the 3-1's. So with that regard the information or more accuratley the suggestion is incorrect.
The only advantage I felt from ranger to chaser was the 15 seconds (Or having to relog) if you leave an extra trap, because ranger can detonate... but chasers are better in my opinion.
I'm not sure if the norm in RG leveling is really using blues, but I used moony dagger + kaahi and was happy about it. How can you survive mobs hitting you strong enough to reflect if you don't have kaahi on?
