here's the thing about rangers, especially animists and hunters - they're really fun to play, have a diverse range of tactics, and can do solo well. but...very weak end-game skills.

i mean, compare them to assassins who get things like huge maledicts, burst damage with owaza, big damage with double spin kick or throw, and excellent lag options.

rangers simply never stack up with that skill set with 2 similar classes. it makes it much worse when you think of the amount of time prey are on civilized vs. wilderness (which assassins can hide in some). ambush is only good against unprepped opponents.

and much worse is that several almost viable ranger builds don't get snare. i think the imms should revisit rangers and bump some skills up, fix others, and also consider that terrain or expertise does not remove skills but simply adds skills to the arsenal.

haste has never "added" an additional melee attack to any class but shapeshifters

Nurok 143 January 18, 2017 04:25AM

Bards can add an extra melee attack somehow

Matrik 163 January 18, 2017 04:49AM

Possibly from singing battaglia

Post at officials and let them know how you feel

Or drink ayahuasca eat some cakes of light and then astrally project yourself directly to Scarabaeus' unconscious Self and tell him what to change. (n/t)

Rhyaldrin 137 January 14, 2017 03:54PM

That actually sounds kinda fun. NT

Sam 131 January 14, 2017 08:38PM

I can't wait to read Zoskia's drug induced response to this. (n/t)

Rhyaldrin 136 January 14, 2017 02:45PM

God you're annoying. Not much experience with hunters on my side.

zoskia 195 January 14, 2017 02:48PM

When the shadowed harem speaks softly...

In nomine dei nostri Satanas Luciferi excelsi.

Rhyaldrin 163 January 14, 2017 02:59PM

I thought you advocated drug use?

Rhyaldrin 186 January 14, 2017 02:51PM

Bows are quite unique in their nature, so I don't think it's too bad that metabolic doesn't add to that

Kstatida 193 January 14, 2017 10:11AM

Yeah, bow shooters don't use steroids.

Murphy 173 January 14, 2017 03:55PM

only against orcs, and even then, one fallback and bash/savage feed can toast a ranger. nt

The Forsaken(VIP) 136 January 14, 2017 02:44PM

Why only against orcs?

Murphy 183 January 14, 2017 08:17PM

it's strong againts giant warriors, necros, and aps, yes

The Forsaken(VIP) 178 January 15, 2017 07:58AM

Kinda odd really.

Murphy 164 January 15, 2017 03:40PM

VS. Sword means no riposte. Kinda nice I'd say.

Matrik 174 January 14, 2017 08:23PM
