master guardian Posted May 5, 2018 Share Posted May 5, 2018 So we had 6 party members in pillars 1. I consider ranger a support class really as it doesn't fill any critical role like a tank, healer, buffer, de-buffer. One could argue they fill the same role as a rogue or barb as a second line damage dealer, but with only a 5 member party it would be hard to position a ranger in battle formation where they are not not getting engaged by an enemy melee character. Taking this into consideration i think a rogue or barb would be a far better option then a ranger because they engage better in melee. It is also a greater priority to keep your casters out of melee then a secondary damage dealer. I am finding it very hard to justify putting a ranger in my party. I think they will be to hard to position both a ranger and casters to keep them out of melee. Say if a party consisted off: melee/ tank role: Fighter/ pally/ chanter melee/ tank role: fighter/ pally/ chanter Secondary damage dealer: ranger Caster/ healer: mage/ priest/ druid Caster/ healer: mage/ priest/ druid That would leave only 2 characters to protect the rest of your party from being engaged by melee...........................hmmmm Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
