I cannot see them in the abilities screen. Can anyone confirm?

Yeah, they should be. Are you updated to the latest version?

Are you using an old savegame maybe?

But they work only for melee?

Yes. I think the new skills are over-rated anyways. It's a pain in the arse to get them to full stack; and it wipes on rest or death - and it only works on one type of enemies at a time.

 

I would much prefer just the option to have a permanent bonus against an enemy type.

Heartseeker is a ranged-only ability. The "Claw" ones are melee-only iirc.

 

Everything wipes on death by the way. ;)

 

A permanent bonus as an ability like the Barb has (+25% dmg to Wilder) is not that great either. Afaik nobody pick this. A flexible one is better in my opinion. It the current ability is a good way to do it I can't say because I didn't test it yet.

Checked with an old savegame, they show up.

 

OP, check steam/GOG, check what version of the game your playing, then try updating your game

I looked at file integrity, it did the trick. Thanks.

Actually, you can use the Claw abilities as ranged if you wield a Sword and Pistol/Blunderbuss. Guess it is a bug because it is a Full Attack and not Primary Attack

The queston is, why? A melee ranger is only good, as single class, because of whirling blades what is a pretty good AoE attack, but lacks on single target dps.

Maybe in order to make them better for melee multiclass use.
