yes and no. This class requires a kinda large budget to become a good archer/hunter. Without budget, you can struggle during your PvE progress. If you are going to purchase AP, then it wouldn't be a problem. If you aren't, then yes.

xybolt is fairly correct. Archers/hunters tend to have to rely a lot on soloing (or wait forever for parties) in their levelling, which requires a certain financial strength if it isn't going to take forever (as you would rather try to avoid having to rely on green mobs all the way, but still be able to keep a good enough killing pace on yellows and orange (maybe red) to surpass the xp pace of killing greens). This financial strength would either be through having other toons you can use to farm items for selling ingame or through gearing up by buying ingame stuff for AP.

If you want a good starting character you can never go wrong with a Priest/Oracle. Very Happy
