    sozu's ranger build, 31rng/18mm/17sin. with 75% aoe avoidance the pet rarely dies so it's a good spec for raiding all bosses.

    AFAIK, the main competing ranged specs are

    44/20/2 Sab/Sin/whatever. Shrap for AOE, rotate Spike and Shrap for single target. Make an Incriminate macro:
    target <tanks's Name>
    cast Incriminate
    targetlasttarget

    Hit the macro right before Detonate.


    31/18/17 Ranger/MM/Sin. Pedestal, use Shadow Fire + Ranger shots. Macro in pet attacks to all your attacks.

    lol, I find it funny that spec has a name.. I never named it but that name is ok I guess.. Anyway yeah thats a nice spec that I came up with a while back, a long while back... You might also want to look into 46 Sab 20 Sin.. Or the 44 Sab,20 Sin,2 Rng

    There are at least three, based on ranger,saboteur and marksman
    Look for Sozu's PVE Ranger Guide and Saboteur Raiding Guide for a discussion of those two, then search for MM or Marksman for the other.
    Which one is best for YOU will depend on YOU and how comfortable you are with the spec and how it plays. What is best for one person will NOT neccessarily be the best for another, and no one spec is the best for everyone. They are all close enough that the player will make the final difference. I know for me personally I do best with Sabo, but my friend does better with Ranger, it is just how we roll. The great thing about this game is that you don't have to level another character in order to try another soul combination (or class in those other games), you just spend a few gold, respec and try it out.

    Good luck.

    44 sab 20 sin is a lot better than the 31 rg build.

    I think so, too, but some really seem to like the rng.

    I need to try full MM; it's a lot more appealing now.

    i mainly run the 44sab build but i have the sozu build and it does ever so slightly more dps for me as it's not far behind my melee ranger build. i dummy parse 900-1000 range with sozu's build so it works for me, just it's not too useful for 90% of the fights, you cant stand still ever and the pedestal has to be somewhere you can run to every 15 seconds or it's useless.

    MM loses badly to Ranger or Sab for sustained DPS.

    No RNG... nothing comes close to 44sab/20sin/2rgr in actual raid environment.

    Full mobility... easy rotations... 1k dps ranged.. 1.3k melee........ T2 geared Sabs come out 1.2k on boss fights in GSB.

    Both the sabo and the ranger are good for leveling. Read the guides, all of the information you need is in them, including the builds, the rotation, the macros and how and why they work. Try them both, play with them, see how they work for you.
