Who's Playing Ranger?

Recommended Posts

Definitely plan to roll up a ranger. I did in my first few games of D&D, I did in WoW, I pretty much play a ranger in most games if I can help it. Hopefully they'll be quite versatile, and don't become just a ranged DPS class. I'll experiment with other classes as well, but ranger will surely be my first character.

Ranger is going to be the most popular because its title appeals to many people. When the game comes out and people see that a ranger is a  one hit KO dps then they will switch to something to more of their style. At least I am hoping ranger isn't the One hit KO assassin but rather has a lot of utility and less dps.

I'm playing what ever is most broken and needs the most fixing by exploiting its over-powered nature. Given that stealth is apparently going to be traditional WoW toggle-stealth disappearing entirely, my bets are high that i'll be starting here.

Ranger was one of my classes of choice but with the recent decision to take away the stealth aspect I may not. Not that I disagree with the decision, the skill 'hide' may make a lot more sense from a balancing standpoint but in these open world PvP games I very much appreciate the stealth option ;)

Just add a Discipline Rune that grants Stealth to your Ranger.

^^^ What he said.

 

Ranger in its current introduced and publicly revealed form is not what it will look like at launch. Blair has said so in the intro thread. This class is labeled a Stealth Specialist role and I have a feeling it will deviate back to that role as more archetypes are introduced into the test.

 

If you've abandoned your plans to be a ranger, I wouldn't. 

 

If you want to play a stealthy archer, its just going to cost you some a discipline rune slot! Still going to be a great stealth class based on the concept.

Oh good to know. I guess I'm not very well versed in the Rune system.  I'd much rather surpise victims from a distance with stealth than being up close.

I know they've gone into this hide instead of stealth mode, but if they bring back the concept of a stealth specialist, I'd be more likely to give it a solid go. It could be a really fun full stealth class if it gets fleshed out like the concept.
