    the only good thing about rogue pets is watching bads dps them.

    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
    Try to maintain that dps when you have BM sitting on you 24/7. Ofc it's unlikely because most PvPers in Rift are too selfish to switch roles when counter spec is needed. Damn VK and WLs everywhere :/

    I don't know if Ranger DPS went back down. It seems like there were some amazing Rangers right after the buffs. I don't see any now.

    As far as buffing Rangers' defense goes... HELL NO. They are already as tough to bring down as Inquisitors. Their defense and survivability is just fine for a ranged class.

    I am only talking about the pet. The pet goes down in 2 gcd's. Please try to play a ranger and see how this affects game play.

    Ranger could use a buff.

    You must be bad because taking out the pet kills the rangers dps and it takes no time to do. Also any class can get their form of rage up on the pets because the pets have to be front line in most cases.

    Pets should be strong enough so I can send them out alone to collect favor and prestige while I sit in my dimension and drink.
    Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you.

    What pet are you using? 2 GCDs is a bit of an exxageration. I'm one of the few people that kills pets in wfs and Ranger pets are the toughest ones out there by far.

    Blood raptor, 14 k hitpoints....no problem to kill that in 2 gcd's. Perhaps valor should be applied to the pets equal to the player. At the moment this is not the case.

    I wouldnt increase it by much. I forget my pet most the time and still know how good ranger is by itself. As far as output is. Utility now... I'd exchange pet for some utility or survivability any day.

    Then again id just forget the pet and have us transform into something with new abilities like a harb does. Make it with options for varied roles. Werewolf anyone?

    Shut up with your facts. Rogues are hugely disadvantaged! A spec with an actual counter? It's just not acceptable. Needs to be buffed, the sooner the better.

    this guy seems to hate rangers with a passion.

    Don't worry mate, Trion will soon make it so that only 2 or 3 specs are actually viable in pvp.
    Everyone will play their FOTM sin and wl just like you want them too k buddy?

    Until then try not to hate on the people asking for a little variance to the game.

    Ranger is good at farming bads without heals as a scoreboard warrior but has the lowest survivability of any ranged class and no notable burst to kill good players with heals/links/guard.

    TLDR: Don't play ranger.

    If you see a raptor, might as well clock it out. It goes down like a wet paper bag, and you just killed a good bit of ranger DPS and a 8% dmg increase buff for them. Granted they can instant summon it again. Do it again and they are in a crappy spot.

    What you mean is, diffuse is a good buff. There is no plural when it comes to ranger defenses.
