Okay, so I've only been playing DDO for about a week and a half and I already have the drow unlock on sarlona. I'm thinking about starting one and playing it to the bitter end so I can make my next toon a 32 pointer. the only other class I've really played is a fighter, which was fun, but highly repetative. I'm still a new player who has no idea how to create a character (way more complex than your standard MMO) so I was hoping I could get some help. I want to keep it simple. With my fighter it was just right click mob till death. Is there any way I can get that kind of simplicty out of a ranged attacker. I'm also comcerned about gear dependence. With a fighter it was easy to equip myself and since I'm new, I really don't have UBER gear, and maybe I never will. I play for fun, not to power my way to the top. All I'm looking for is a ranged attacker that will keep me interested because I'm going to be spending a lot of time with him.

Except, he wants a ranger. To the OP, you should consider a normal elf for a ranged ranger. The bow enhancements are nice.

Yeah, I might just wait until I unlock 32 point builds and build my ranger than. I have been seriously considering rolling a caster in hopes that it may provide more options while at the same time being somewhat easy to gear and play, I've heard wizards aern't that tought to build, might try that. I feel that if I go with a sorceror I will get overwhelmed with my abundance of options.

Sorc has less options than wiz, and is particularly well suited to drow. Many if not most of the "end game" sorcs now are drow (or human, but with 32 point builds).

If you're thinking of caster at all, drow sorc is a great choice.

If you're really into ranged, I would also say go elf as they tend to make better rangers than drow (IMO).

check the various class forums for good builds
