    Default Ranger DPS compared to other classes?

    Since Ranger is our top ranged DPS, is it comparable to the top DPS of other classes? Specifically Pyro, Inq and Tempest.

    Raid buffed, decently geared...

    Inq > Pyro > Ranger > MM > Tempest

    edit that was for PvE.

    Overall PvP
    Inq > MM > Pyro > Ranger > Tempest.

    Thanks, for the PvE list, are there any specific values?

    Btw, do people really use ranger in PvP? I don't see what's the appeal of it.

    Ranger burst is very mean. There are plenty rangers in PvP.

    Values... top of my head using the old 2.3 PTS parses with box gear.

    Inquisitor ~24k with dark water and rage blight
    Pyro ~23k (roughly on par with inquisitor before rage blight)
    Ranger ~22.5-23k
    MM ~21-22k
    Tempest 21-22k

    MM is a bit lower sustained dps than tempest. In the test gear it hovers around 21k. The initial burst is just good and there is very little buildup time so it works for pvp. For any extended fight MM does poorly. Ranger does 23-23.5k sustained.

    Thanks for replies. I thought ranger had lower DPS than pyro, but guess not.

    Pyro is very rng sensitive. eg Pyro Agies has a 5% chance to proc a cinder (which is one of their most damaging instant nuke) which can be used for a huge nuke or give them over 30% of their charge back in 1 cast. This has a 10s internal cd.

    In ~1 minute expert boss Ive had 5 cinder procs, and Ive gone thru 10 minutes crucia with just 12 procs.

    Inquisitor has no RNG simple and straight forward rotation and is undoubtedly the highest ranged dps. I was under the impression that pyro was still 2nd. But I could've missing some ranger buffs since 2.3 which pushed it over pyro. But it looks like ranger and pyro is extremely close. Tempest and MM however is significantly lower, THOUSANDS behind inquisitor.
