Update Notes: 2.02 in Pillars of Eternity Support Blog A blog by Darren Monahan in General Posted September 26, 2015 Hi ALL Firstly would like to say a huge thank you to obsidian for making an AWESOME game. My favorite since BG2. Can I please bring to your attention: RANGERS ARE INCREDIBLY UNDERPOWERED AND BASICALLY OBSELTE. For the following reasons: - They have only one ability that differentiates them from all other classes capable of using ranged weapons; swift aim. This is the only ability of substance. All other ranger abilities are mediocre and almost useless.- A Rogue and a Fighter who specializes in ranged combat is far more affective then a ranger. - The rangers companion WILL DIE as soon as it enters front line combat in a medium difficulty fight. - The only other Ranger ability that looks promising is stunning shot, though is useless for the above reason. This is also a high level ability. EG mages can stun/ confuse at very low levels and don't require a rodent to run around to enable it. - I have finished the game on hard and you can hardly tell the difference between a mage/priest with a ranged weapon compared to a ranger. PLEASE OVERHAUL RANGER. THIS IS RIDICULOUS . HONESTLY!
