Have Rangers been noticeably improved since release?


Recommended Posts

Yup, they don't do quite as much damage as a melee rogue, but they are not that far off it if you include the pets damage which is substantial. They also have good crowd control at higher level thanks to pet knockdown and binding roots. Good class, but you have to micro manage the pet in much the same way as you'd manage a melee rogue in order to really benefit. Only problem at the mo is a few bugs, including the one where merciless companion switches from the pet to the ranger when/if you respec. There are workarounds for most of them including that one, but there are a couple of bugs which aren't fixable at this point.

"Those who look upon gods then say, without even knowing their names, 'He is Fire. She is Dance. He is Destruction. She is Love.' So, to reply to your statement, they do not call themselves gods. Everyone else does, though, everyone who beholds them."
"So they play that on their fascist banjos, eh?"
"You choose the wrong adjective."
"You've already used up all the others.”

Even during pre-expansion, I found ranger to be a pretty good class. Just avoid treating the pet as a tank. Driving flight and stunning arrows is very effective.

 

Post-expansion as others mentioned, ranger pets got buffed. I haven't progressed my latest playthrough up to max lvl yet but ranger's twinned arrow skill looks awesome.
