    Default Ranger - Ascended Biology/Revitalize

    Revitalize improves healing received by 3%

    Ascended Biology improves healing done by 5%

    The abilities that Rangers have that are to do with healing are Spirit of the Wilderness and Rejuvenate(pet heal)

    My question is, does Ascended Biology affect the healing done by Spirit of the Wilderness and the pet heal Rejuvenate?

    It should, yes.

    Revitalize is still better, though, because your own healing is absolutely nothing compared to what the healer will be pumping out, and 3% of his healing is far more than 5% of your own.

    Not even then. Ascended Biology shouldn't be boosting Spirit of the Wilderness because it scales with damage done by the pet. It's not a direct heal, so it doesn't benefit from % bonuses to heals. It would boost Rejuvenate, though.

    Revitalize is better, but the real question is "Why play Ranger?"

    Trick question, there is no reason.

    If you're using Ranger as a solo spec, then optimization is clearly not something that you're concerned with.

    Pretty much this.

    The only situations I can think of where Ranger would be worth using at the moment are incredibly contrived and nothing like them exists anywhere in the game (or at least, not in any of the content that's currently relevant).
