    Default I am really hoping...

    For a Archer class that does not have or rely on pets i would really just like an archer main class that isint some sort of beast master just more of a traditional archer class. What do you guys think?

    Sounds like what you're describing is probably already in the game, under the name Marksman. We don't have a lot of information yet but from be brief tidbits and speculation so far it will be a ranged damage dealer that can use either bows or firearms to pick off opponents before they get into melee.

    Also, as a general tip, you'll get more hits and replies from people if your titles inform them a bit more about your question. "I'm really hoping" could be about anything from classes to beta, asking "Archer without pet ideas?" or "Ranger question" may get you a better response.

    I didn't find any information on the Marksman class on the wiki or anywhere else i read thanks for the info. I have seen it mentioned once or twice reading through here but no mention of exactly what the class is or if it has pets.

    Let me see what I can dig up : ) I'm getting ready to head back from work but I'll try to find the little bit of 'official' info I can on the marksman once I get home tonight.

    If I'm not mistaken, I believe that the rangers will be the ranged pet class while the marksman should be completely pet free. I'm not a big pet player either (strange considering I play a loremaster in Lord of the Rings Online), so my ears always perk up whenever I heard the marksmen mentioned. I'd expect the MM have a bit less survivability than a ranger but will likely have some increased damage skills to make up for it.

    I also somewhat recall that the defiant marksman will be using firearms while the guardians will use bows, but I'd say there's about a 50% chance I'm making it up.

    If you look at the Ranger Soul tree (pre-beta version) there are not many branches that are pet specific. I think the pet is going to be the equivalent DOT that you dont have to recast. Most of thier abilities benefit thier attacks not thier pets.

    I did a little bit of digging and I was only able to get a small tidbit of official information for you. In this video with Russ Brown he goes over a custom class he makes at about 7 minutes in (saboteur, marksman, bard).

    Concerning the Marksman he says: "Our marksman is all about keeping range. He’s a ranged character that has speed buffs that make him run around faster". He also says, as putting points into marksman "and now its all about me doing tons of damage".
