    Default Energy regen disparity

    When are you going to address this for ranger. Ranger has roughly 25s of attack, after that there is no sustainable rotation without being energy starved, not even with quick shot much less mixing in shadow fire, your 8 day buff to the class before nerfing again was cute and all but since you can't ever seem to balance your buffing, then remove the limiter to the souls dps from energy regen.

    On my inquisitor takes me 15 min of hard non stop fighting to even have to think about mana, Puri about 5 min of hard fighting, my Chloro 5 to 10 min or not at all most of the time, MM you never look - primalist , the new souls etc, the list goes on an on where power/energy/mana is not ever a legitimate issue in any sense of normal game play, Ranger - 25s then every attack, other than auto attack is held back forced to more than a GCD to have the energy regen to use in any sustained form.

    If you're level 65, you can use the level 63 and 65 energy masteries. Also, if you're playing Marksman properly, you will starve pretty quickly. Also, Assdancer starves faster than Ranger. You can also use an Energy potion every 2 minutes.

    Not sure why you're comparing a mana class to an energy class, but we can look past that

    A lot of our specs have issues with energy, during parsing we can either utilize energy pots or have the 65 mastery for energy (same as LE/Fervor), but in raids we *should* have these buffs, so the only issue you *should* have energy drain with is parsing and dungeons.

    Tho... ranger I hope you're only using this for pvp or solo, as its worse than MM (not saying you can't play it, before people qq - just that its not as good as MM)

    The real question here is, why are you playing ranger? lol.

    Ranger is designed for leveling and solo content. Not end-game competitive dps.

    65 mastery works well, the 63 is completely useless overall since its proc rate and value are so low that they have no substantive effect on gameplay, having to use masterys/skill points to achieve minimal mitigation to an outdated design is failure on a whole new level.

    Once every 2 minutes you can sustain a base rotation for a few seconds comparitively? Thatís not feasible by any metric in the current game design.

    Resource type is irrelevant to the point, the disparity in sustainable design is, 25s vs Minutes+, an advantage in sustainability that is 5 to 10 times greater.



    There has been a systemic change in the game design where resource limited functionality is no longer a strategic part of game design. It started in SL and really started coming to fruition in NT with bloated resource pools with fast recovery regen and skills; then newer classes with no resource limiter or regen rates that make their resource pools irrelevant as a limiting factor - Primalist, Frostkeeper etc.

    For the rogue class in general regardless of spec, it is an outdated - by Trionís own design - useless and unnecessary limiter, it should be removed.

    Ranger is designed for open world solo play.

    What open world solo mob cannot be killed in 25 seconds, even by a Ranger?
