View Full Version : Ranger/Mage or Ranger/Rogue

10-22-2007, 03:18 PM
Im trying to decide how I want to use my Ranger. I have been pure now up to level 5. I am debating taking 2 levels in mage or two levels in rogue. What I really want out of this is the UMD skill. The Rangers UMD is so low because it is not pure to the class that I find myself not being able to use the scroll, wands and other devices I would really like to use.

So what I'm asking is what would be better in that case?

I'd say one level of rogue... no need for two really get the UMD access and dup all the points into UMD you can

I guess mage = bard?
Just be aware that people will probably expect you to have rogue skills if you have a splash of rogue in a ranger.
I'm not going to try to answer your question of which is better because this is the kind of unplanned multi-classing I usually try to avoid.

Bard would be good (depending on your Alignment) though not as many skill points it does have a few perks

Since you are lvl 5 it doesn't take that long to get back to it. I personally would reroll with the lvl of rogue at lvl 1. With a descent int you can keep most of the rogue skills maxed. This would be with a 14 int. With this you can be the main rogue in a group as well as drop some good damage or stat damage depending on how you design your ranger.
