    No one should play ranger.

    Like ever.

    Ha! It has been more challenging than warrior for sure. It is nice being at range for a change. But I may be saying the same thing in a week.

    The spectrum of challenging in rift is:

    More challenging to less challenging.

    Playable with 1 macro while drunk ---------------------------------------------> CQ spec.

    Ranger will not work in any serious PvP as long as all his dps buffs (including the +40% dmg buff) are purgeable.

    Ranger can do well when:

    1. You got LE.
    2. Nobody is purging or draining your energy (since Ranger will starve even without drains if you dont have LE)
    3. There's no healers (or low skilled / undergeared one) in enemy team.

    Better reason to buff the pets defensively so we can play our underpowered class.

    Ranger (even with its 2.6 buffs) is still pretty gimp. It's a novelty spec for sure and shouldn't be used to compete with the big boys.

    <3 you Rift for making souls like this.

    The only reason I play one is because once a player sent me a tell at the start of a codex match.

    "Why r u a rogue with a pet? U are gonna fail this for us play a real soul."

    I didn't reply. We ended up winning and I had top dps with nearly 200k above the next dps player.

    I send the guy a tell "What did you say?"

    And to my delight, he already had me on /ignore.

    I was sold. Ranger4life

    ranger is fine, queued one game, this is a pvp spec and isn't even the top parsing spec

    energy usage is the only issue i have with the soul at this point

    A spec that can crit for 6k x 2 in one hit + fluff is clearly underpowered

    Well that makes sense. When I whale on phys I rack up the dps as well.

    Rangers are weird man... sometimes they feel unstoppable and sometimes they feel gimp as hell.

    Go up against a good group of warriors/sins and your pet will be demolished in a second mitigating your damage greatly. Also yeah we got the energy problem but that's for a different thread imo and not as bad as the pet problem.

    Hell (in certain situations) I do it to other rangers. The pet is so squish only takes a few seconds to bring it down even with the heal.

    When people leave me alone I can easily rack up 600k+ per wf usually 600-800k

    Buff pets for rangers-2014-07-07_00004.jpg

    Like these 2 wf tonight.

    but other times I struggle to pull in 400k

    Its a FAR cry from any of you out there hinting that Ranger is OP. It's still a heavily reliant class.
