Ranger

 

jungle1_smallEihydia is a dangerous world and some locations as Ravinder, Ama’rane, the jungles of South Kel-sith are incredibly deadly. Overtime, groups of like minded individuals, regardless of race, formed into bands to explore and learn how to overcome the dangerous that nature constantly poses. Overtime, most have formed a close connection and learned to appreciate nature on a new level.

Rangers selected the bow as their main means of combat. The bow is a versatile weapon – capable of hunting and providing food, a potent weapon that can be used to for offense and defense, and is generally easily crafted in the wilderness.

 

Difficulty

Rangers are considered medium difficulty and are suggested for new or experienced players to try. Their mechanics are more varied but still relatively easy to understand. The role play can be more varied and offer many unique challenges and situations.

With that said, Rangers offer players who love being one with nature and using ranged weapons to their fullest potential.

Role

Rangers serve as a means for ranged damage and utility in the wilderness, increasing the groups survivability.

Role Play Opportunities

A Tempest Season offers many unique opportunities for Rangers. A Ranger can survive in the wild alone and be a lone wolf, so to speak. Or they can guide others through dangerous territory. They can role play one who is in tune with nature and become its defender. For those who do not want a nature aspect, the Marksman focus allows a player to specialize in archery based RP.

Unique Game Play System

bowarrowRangers use ranged weapons such as bows and crossbows. See this for more information: Ranged Weapons

Focus

Each Ranger can select from one of two focii. Each will give the Ranger unique skills.

Marksman

In addition to dealing more damage with missile weapons, the Marksman will have access to a unique skill set that focuses on improving ranged combat, moving faster, and attacking multiple targets..

Role: The Marksman focuses more on using their bow and dealing increased damage.

Pathfinder

Pathfinders are a utility-based class that are second to none when exploring the wilderness. In addition to other utility skills, the Pathfinder, while leading a hunting group, will make their party immune to aggressive monsters. Pathfinders are also able to start the Great Hunt–a unique skill-based quest that sets the player on a journey to hunt a powerful badger. The Great Hunt is triggered after speaking to a specific NPC and awards unique equipment, gold, experience, and (sometimes) tier points.

Role: The Pathfinder focuses more on utility abilities.

Special Attacks

Rangers do not have access to any special attacks.

Specializations

The basic specializations the Ranger has access to at level 25 are:

Bushwacker

Some Rangers become so intune with nature where they are able to use their surroundings to escape from danger or to strike from no where, much like an assassin does from shadows. These Rangers are often known as Bushwackers: fierce but fun loving warriors of the wood.

The Bushwacker specialization is for Rangers who wish to acquire more utility and become one with bushes.

Sharpshooter

The Sharpshooter specializes in ranged weapons, giving access to powerful techniques such as hinder shot and fletching arrows.

The Sharpshooter specialization is for Rangers who wish to become more proficient with ranged weapons.

Third Spec

The third spec is not designed or developed. The decision behind this was to allow players the ability to contribute to the game and have the Ranger class reach their full potential. Post your ideas on this forum thread: Third Spec Idea Thread

Skills

Rangers receive skills such as hawk strike, dreadhawk, archery, and camping.

Ranger’s receive a large bonus to hiding, stalking, attack, defense, damage done and damage mitigation while in the wilderness.

Preferred Races

Cryinale Elves and Humans.
