    Default [Guide] Melee Ranger v2

    Yes we all seen the other thread but im lazy so ill post the version we use in <WeaKsauCe>

    Umi's Melee Ranger

    This Build Skarrj and i tested it made us do around 1400-1600 dps on Plutonus.

    Parses:
    Skarrj
    Umi


    Macros made for this spec:

    #show Backstab
    suppressmacrofailures
    petattack
    petcast Rend
    petcast Bloodied Blow
    petcast Razor Lash
    cast Backstab
    cast Savage Strike
    cast Crippling Shot
    cast Quick Shot

    #show Puncture
    suppressmacrofailures
    petattack
    petcast Rend
    petcast Bloodied Blow
    petcast Razor Lash
    cast Puncture
    cast Fiery Spike

    #show Head Shot
    suppressmacrofailures
    petattack
    petcast Rend
    petcast Bloodied Blow
    petcast Razor Lash
    cast Head Shot

    #Show Rain of Arrows
    petattack
    petcast Razor Lash
    petcast Bloodied Blow
    petcast Rend
    cast Rain of Arrows

    At ranged you often want to pull your pet away, thats the reason why you are going ranged and with this macro it works fine.

    #show Quick Shot
    suppressmacrofailures
    petpassive
    cast Quick Shot

    General Rotation

    -Opener-
    Hide->Expose->Jagged->Backstabx3>Impale
    Puncture->Fieryx3->Baneful-Poison Malice

    -Rotation-
    Fiery->Backstabx3->Final Blow
    Fiery->Backstabx3->Impale

    Keep Fiery up if you lose the stack just reapply it asap

    Extra things you can add for this;

    - Never have auto casts on pet spells
    - Try use Slip away as much as possible ( Slip away when Jagges strike is over on a target, then reapply )
    - Remember to keep up Headshot buff for 5% DMG, Fiery and Baneful Touch for poison DMG.

    Credits goes to Umi and Skarrj

    I see both of the parses include Baneful Rune damage. Do you keep it on your actual weapons or is it bugged?

    Wouldn't Piercing shot be a usefull addition? Reducing armor by nearly 600 is quite powerful for backstab and final blow.

    Hmm. Have you done any parses to determine if it's a bigger DPS improvement than +20 dex would be?

    Also, I know it's pretty minor, but shouldn't Bloodied Blow be top priority for the petcast? It does more DPS than Rend and also heals the pet.

    Rather minor change but in your backstab macro, you list Crippling Shot but according to your spec, you don't have a point into Crippling Shot. I assume it is just a mistype on the macro but just checking that.

    I believe Rend is the reason for the macros to begin with. It can stack up to 3 times, as its cooldown is shorter than its duration, and putting it in the macro ensures it a priority in the rotation. The pet doesn't prioritize it well with autocast, and the effect can fall off.

    Looks fun.
    Is this a raiding spec only or does it do well in say expert 5 mans?

    Wouldn't this be more of a "Assassin+Pet" then "Melee Ranger"?

    In any case I ran something like this a while ago, it was a lot of fun.

    True but people tend to stick to the term melee ranger
