Ir ranger

Description: Rangers are skilled stalkers and hunters who make their home in the wilderness. Their martial skill is nearly the equal of the fighter, but they lack the latter's dedication to the craft of fighting. Instead, the ranger focuses his skills and training on a specific enemy - a type of creature he bears a vengeful grudge against and hunts above all others. Rangers often accept the role of protector, aiding those who live in or travel through the woods. His skills allow him to move quietly and stick to the shadows, especially in natural settings, and he also has special knowledge of certain types of creatures. Finally, an experienced ranger has such a tie to nature that he can actually draw on natural power to cast divine spells, much as a druid does, and like a druid he is often accompanied by animal companions.

Prestige class tips Edit

Notes Edit

  • Despite popular perception and BioWare's prestige class tip, the ranger is not intrinsically better suited to archery than melee combat. Other than automatic access to cat's grace but not to bull's strength (see attack bonus), a ranger has no abilities that benefit ranged combat without similar benefits to melee combat (and even that exception fails to meet this criteria if the ranger has weapon finesse).
  • Zen archery can be a useful feat to a ranger who prefers ranged to melee combat and wishes to make use of the ranger's wisdom-based magic.
  • When reaching ranger levels with bonus favored enemy feats at epic character levels (not just epic ranger levels), a feat may be chosen from the epic ranger bonus feat list instead of the usual favored enemy. For example, a spell caster who meets the prerequisites for improved combat casting might take a single ranger level in order, among other reasons, to get that feat as a bonus feat (in lieu of a favored enemy).
  • Although a ranger is automatically proficient with medium armor, many rangers prefer light armor as medium armor disables their dual-wield abilities.
  • The ranger is well-suited for some stealth builds, as ranger and arcane archer are the only full base attack classes that have hide and move silently as class skills
  • The ranger's dual-wield feat is particularly useful for characters whose unmodified dexterity is less than 15 (the prerequisite for ambidexterity), if that character wears light armor and has an interest in using two weapons.
