Ranger Build List - 2.5 version

Ranger Build List


Hello, I'm Amongalen and from now on I will be taking care of the Ranger Build List originally created by Panini_aux_olives (The original Builds List).

This is a list thread of all up-to-date Ranger guides (updated after 2.5 patch). Just as my predecesor, I'll try to keep track of all new and old builds and add/remove them when necessary. I hope you find this list helpful and feel free to send some feedback about it.

Build lists for other classes:
Witch by Kwitch
Duelist by eviL_Bison
Marauder by Bockris
Scion by Gazza732
Shadow by Gazza732
Templar by Kwitch

Quoting previous build list creators (not sure who said it orginally):
I try to include only builds that have been played to ~ lvl 75-80 / played some mid-range maps (tier 7-10) to make sure the OP knows what he is talking about and avoid pure theorycrafts.
A build should also contain more than just a linked tree + gear

If its possible please add a short build description in your thread, it helps a lot.

I will try to specify the subclass chosen by the build maker in the link to the build thread. I will also try to specify specific capabilities of the build (Atziri/U-Atzirir/U-lab Viable) as long as the authors explain them in the build thread. For that I'll use the next notation and though they seem pretty obvious, I don't want to take any risk.

Thanks man, no idea what happened to Panini. I would email and PM the devs so they can transfer the build list from Panini to you - they've done that for some of the other character forums.

Then you can edit and remake it as you like.

I have him added in game and haven't seen him in a while :(

Will update my build soon... 40/40 this league is taking way longer than expected.
