Who's Playing Ranger?

Recommended Posts

In the same way I make the assumption that the bow is the Ranger's primary weapon based off of the picture - as other classes have their main weapons in the picture and that the bandit mask routinely and regularly implies stealth... I will hold out the Ranger will be a fun class and never-the-less my primary as all the other races/classes are meh.

 

Additionally, the stalker states "ranged DPS". That doesn't inspire much belief of utility like a specialist does. Even if they may have access to self-cloaking abilities, I doubt it will ever be on par with the utility of a "specialist".

 

NOW, with that said, we could all be misunderstanding what ArtCraft's perception of "specialist" is. I for one am looking forward to their explanation. I think in the end however, runes will fix everything.

I think Human Ranger and Elken Stalker will be an example of 2 races with (basically) the same class. Which answers several threads' question.

 

I think Ranger being marked as specialist, will be the bow DPS pro, whereas stalker will not be so pro with a bow but have other weapons also.

 

it's like the assassin and the legionnaire, specialist - melee DPS (But ranged)

Aside from the fact that I'm a sucker for more "everyman" style classes, I had a tin of fun with scouts and rogue barbarians in Shadowbane, and I envision ranger to have similar toolsets.

 

They're not at the apex in terms of DPS, but carry a ton of utility that serves as a force multiplier for their lesser DPS.

 

I'd imagine all the specialist roles and promotions skew this way, but ranger seems to be a likely candidate for mixed-range play and survival style buffs, which appeal to me for the same reasons my shadowbane toons did. I envision him as a very group oriented toon whos main role generally places him outside the main force in a scouting, flanking, or foraging role.

 

I like the expanded survival element of game play possibly adding additional utility as he seems like survival is his unique strength, and thus I'd imagine he's useful at acquiring food, setting up camp sites, and establishing camp perimeters.

 

Also, his art appeals to me the most.

I'm a veteran too, nobody cares that you were a RL ranger just like nobody cares what I did for the military either.  I'm happy for you?  Whats the correct response?

 

No ranger I have ever met whines when confronted, they ranger up and move on.

 

As for the class being your first choice, good.  I'd hate fpr this class to be not played and then neglected as it seems like my first choice too.

"when confronted"?... Really?  lmao if that's your idea of a confrontation.  No worries, I've got my Muck Boots on just special for you and truly no self glorification intended.  Agreed, it was a really lame attempt at making conversation... But I was just wondering mandalore, who appointed you to speak for Everyone? lol
