Description[]

A female Elf Ranger.

The wilds of Terminus call to Rangers, drawing them deeper into its mysteries. It is in these untamed regions of the world that Rangers are forged into versatile and ferocious warriors, united with the land and animals they commune with.

The Ranger excels at both melee and ranged combat, able to weave between the two with elegant ease. In close combat, Rangers prefer the use of one-hand weapons over two-handed, able to deliver devastating damage with swift precision. When the Ranger chooses to withdraw from close quarters combat, they can masterfully employ bows and crossbows to inflict lethal ranged damage, restrain enemies, illuminate their environment, set traps or flee from danger.

Gameplay Information[]

Notice

Group Role

The Ranger's official role is damage . Rangers are unique among the damage classes as they can fight equally at a range, in melee or by mixing both together in a style known as skirmishing by utilizing their RNG withdraw icon.png Withdraw and RNG engage icon.png Engage abilities.

Rangers have some of the best scouting tools, such as Lay of the Land: Hawk Scout which allows them to scout through the eyes of a hawk and Tracking which lets Rangers find specific targets within a large area by tracking their position.

Combat Resource

Momentum
In combat, Rangers will constantly generate Momentum as a percentage of the damage they deal. In addition, certain melee and range abilities will increase a Ranger's Momentum by a certain amount when used. Other abilities will have a Momentum cost in order to be performed. The more Momentum a Ranger has, the faster their melee and ranged attack speed becomes, up to a 20% increase when Momentum is full. When a Ranger chooses to spend Momentum, their melee and ranged attack speed will slow in proportion until the Ranger builds their momentum up again.

FAQ / Q&A[]

Question [2]
Will Rangers be viable DPS if they stick to Ranged or Melee combat and don’t weave between the two?
Chris
I’ve given this one quite a bit of thought over the past many months, I can say that as of now, the answer to this is yes. Moving forward, the design of the Ranger class will focus on keeping them viable and competitive in DPS both at range and in melee combat, while leveraging their ability to weave between short and long range combat to create situational advantages that they can exploit while maintaining incredibly high mobility. We’re also reworking the Momentum resource quite a bit to support this playstyle and can’t wait to show it in action!

Yep! I thought I had said that publicly at some point, but Ranger is going to fully support all 3 approaches: full range, full melee, or skirmish.

Trivia[]
