For archers, starting with level(Maplestory powerleveling) 50, overalls are the main equipment. Overalls feature 10 slots, which can be scrolled easily for dex. Buy 100% dex scrolls from the various NPCs for 35,000 and get an easy 10 dex. This is also an option at level 30 with the sauna robe, or level 20 with the bath towel if your version has Showa town, but generally players at that low of a level don't have enough money to afford it. It is recommended that you don't waste money on gloves or shoes, unless they are upgraded with weapon(Maple Story Meso) attack, speed, or jump.
The level 15 or 20 glove will suffice for a while for any class in Maplestory, in fact, most mid to higher levels (level 50+) use a level 10 work glove (upgraded with weapon Attack). So what does this list mean? It means, if poor, buy as many Health and Mana potions as you can. If you saved up enough money, then buy a more powerful weapon. If you still got money, then scroll your weapon. If you still got money, then buy your armor. Parties are another good option, as mesos from other members' kills will go to everyone.
