what do you think of the new ranger pass?

We need to unite together to stop us from being downgraded any further. With the recent update we have been nerfed too far. I mean our class is almost unplayable now, the ED (Shiradi) we go into at epic level has been nerfed 2 times now already. We need to organize a riot or something along the lines of what everyone did on wayfinder to keep the hearts and tokens. I know that most of us that plays the Ranger class is the quite type that sit in the dark corners of the tavern and hardly ever speaks, Much like the real life rangers of the movies lol. But we need to stand up and take action and actually say something about this. I propose that all of us log in on Cannith server on the bridge in front of the Lordsmarch bank on 05/01/2014 @ 6:pm EST and sit there until we get something done about this.
My monk can multiple imbue her handwraps, My ranger used to be able to multiple imbue her arrows now she cant. I used to be able to paralyze the giants of Tor, now she cant. I used to be able to paralyze the undead, now she cant. She used to be able to paralyze dwarves in a relic of a sovereign past, now she cant. She used to be able to paralyze the elementals, now she cant.

And what about our spells? Face it they just suck. The only ones worth anything is Freedom of Movement, Rams might, and maybe Cure serious wounds if you have gear or items that enhances it. But who has the space? After you HAVE to get Accuracy item, Deadly item, Seeking item, then something with a Fortitude, then a Resistance item, then a protection item, and a Natural armor bonus item, then the Will save item, and not to mention the stat items you need WHO has the space on their gear for a Healing amplification Item? I don't.

Oh and have you also noticed your dps is down? I sure have. And its not from NOT having multiple imbued arrows either. My girl used to hit on the bow for 78 pts of dmg. AFTER the update she's hitting for 48 pts of dmg on the bow.

I'm not asking that the developers over power us, I'm just asking for my damm arrows back to the way they was before. Paralyze means just that. To Paralyze. I can live without the multiple imbues. But as for our spells they need some serious work in order to even be viable in epic content. Heck even in heroic content our spells are a joke.

Paralysing Arrows seem to have been now recoded to actually being Paralysing weapons. Paralysing weapons never worked on Elementals, Undead, Constructs and Duergar because D&D chose to make them Immune to Paralysis. Not sure about the GH mobs you mentioned.
Multiple arrow imbues were a bug.
Imbuing Handwraps? You just made Tyler Do'urden sad.

Not sure about the GH mobs you mentioned.
Tor Giants specifically are supposed to be immune to Paralyses and FoD (and similar effects) although from what I can tell, only Paralyses is coded correctly. Then again, I haven't played in Tor sense U21 so this could all be wrong.

Hi,

The paralyse everything imbue was fun while it lasted, but from the moment it appeared it seemed like an accident which was going to be fixed sooner or later.

Like other posters have said, there are many monster types which are normally immune to paralysis, and there is no reason the AA effect should work any differently to a paralysing weapon.

I doubt that this is what you want to hear, but the best thing to do now is take a deep breath and calm down. There is no point getting this upset about bugs like paralysis and exploits like multiple elemental imbues being fixed, and even less point in starting thread after thread about it.

Threatening in-game protests over bug fixes of this sort is ridiculous. A well-played ranger or monkcher can still make a very strong contribution to their groups. My main and others like him have been for years, and I'm sure yours can too.

Thanks.

Paralyzing weapons always worked on elementals since I started playing ddo in 2009 (and before that I'm guessing), the rest is correct, though I honestly don't remember what's with duergars, not that it matters! :)

lol wow.. .i don't even know where to start...

ah well... *wades in*


We need to unite together to stop us from being downgraded any further. With the recent update we have been nerfed too far. I mean our class is almost unplayable now, really? news to me and my 4 AA toons the ED (Shiradi) we go into at epic level has been nerfed 2 times now already. it has? had no idea. besides, fury or LD is where it's at ...*snip*...

My monk can multiple imbue her handwraps, bugged .thanks for admitting you use a 'ploit on the forum. My ranger used to be able to multiple imbue her arrows now she cant. also bugged. fixing it was not a nerf, again, thanks for admitting to using 'ploits I used to be able to paralyze the giants of Tor, now she cant. meh. i've never paralyzed giants in tor. I used to be able to paralyze the undead, bugged. bound to be fixed eventually now she cant. She used to be able to paralyze dwarves in a relic of a sovereign past, i was never able to. i figured their fort save was too high now she cant. She used to be able to paralyze the elementals, again... bugged now she cant.

And what about our spells? Face it they just suck. and everyone else's spellbooks are loaded with puppies and rainbows. every spell list has duds. rams might and FoM rock The only ones worth anything is Freedom of Movement, Rams might, and maybe Cure serious wounds if you have gear or items that enhances it. But who has the space? After you HAVE to get Accuracy item, i don't have one of these Deadly item, Seeking item 10 seeker on pinion FTW, then something with a Fortitude lol. or do you mean fortification?, then a Resistance item, then a protection item lol AC means whut?, and a Natural armor bonus item lol AC means whut? (besides... barkskin. derp), then the Will save item why? you already have a resistance item. they don't stack. derp, and not to mention the stat items you need WHO has the space on their gear for a Healing amplification Item? I don't. guess you havn't found PDK gauntlets yet huh?

Oh and have you also noticed your dps is down? I sure have. And its not from NOT having multiple imbued arrows either. My girl used to hit on the bow for 78 pts of dmg. AFTER the update she's hitting for 48 pts of dmg on the bow. ya doin something wrong then sweetie. i'm still hitting in the 90s

....

sounds to me like someone was playing a "omg AAs are OP nao!!!" FotM and now that things are FIXED... they think they're nerfed. go find the new FotM... you don't deserve to play an AA. stop giving the good ones a bad name.

I don't.

I am going to suggest that you don't bother with AC at all, focus on Blur, Ghostly, Displacement, and Dodge % items, they will do better for you as a ranger.

Also, as far as Resists go, if you are talking about Elemental Resist items like Acidproof, and the like, I would suggest this to be a situational item as opposed to something worn all the time.

If you are talking about a "Saves" resist item, then saves don't stack, so it's redundant, you can free up some spots here for Heal Amp, and Heal Amp is always a good investment.

Also, Accuracy is a waste of a slot, just slot Deadly and seeker.

Also, if space to get in the effects you want is a problem, and look into Augments, with Augments, Typical Loot-gen can add up to 4 slots to your character, IE: 2 base effects and 2 augment slots.

So that should help you quite a bit. I realize that fixes feel like nerfs, but is the nature of bugs and features™, sometimes they get fixed, and when that happens we have to put on our big boy pants and deal.

I'm just gonna say this quickly: you are a terrible AA. If you could only play an AA with the arrow imbue bug, and if you thought 78 damage per arrow was good, you weren't a good AA.

I think folks should keep in mind that OP is likely a relatively new player who has been given VERY bad advice since the two Fight Club issues he mentions are unlikely to be something he came up with himself. So rather than telling him how terrible he is, I suggest confining comments to those which can improve his play without the mockery. Some folks have done that in this thread and by do so have shown themselves to be better AA Rangers than some of the others.

I don't think it'll be a problem. The OP won't come back and post in this thread after being wrong so loudly and publicly. If he does we could always link him to a slightly more helpful thread that hasn't been tainted by our bias.

I guess your making an assumption that he is at epic levels. Suppose he's say level 12-15, the 78 DPS is not that horrible.

Get the facts before you judge.

Now maybe he is at Epci levels...then you would be correct.

It's hard to tell if the OP's AA is bad or not as I can't see where he says what level it is.

My level 26 Ranger just walked up to the training dummy and I can't make it do less than 90 damage per shot without buffs, and I'm a pretty casual gamer and collector of equipment.

Dear Developers,
The whole point is fun. If the DM makes the play too hard for the PCs, they will loose the fun and there will be no player after a while. I love playing ranger but it is difficult to solo with them and frequently I cant progress anymore. Besides being a bug or exploit mutiple imbuing was a way to leverage the Arcane Archer. I'm very sorry about the stupid decision (to "fix" multiple imbues) and I hope you reconsider or other way to fix ranger weakeness in the next update. I will be there in the protest!

With all due respect, if you are having difficulty soloing with your Arcane Archer Ranger, rather than address the developers I would suggest addressing other players. If you provide your fellow players with both a detailed description of your character including stats, feats, gear etc, as well as the specific details of the difficulties you are encountering, you may gain valuable insights on how to improve your character.

Dear Turbine.

Its still fun to stand on piles of previously killed mobs to get better bow shots at soon to be killed mobs. Nothing is wrong with AA, there was just too many people who built them when the abilities were broke in a way that could be used in a not WAI fashion to gain even further advantage than an AA already has. Please buff bards and barbarians, as no more attention to AA is currently needed.

Oh Really? Well I am fairly new. I am also female so it takes me a little more time to learn to be a power creep like most you men are. A lot of the things I had originally posted I had no idea they was even broken or working as intended until my guild leader sat down with me over voice chat and spent 4 hours explaining things to me and walking me through some stuff. That's all I needed was a little guidance. It's no wonder theres no new players to this game and players are leaving with the likes of some of you people around.

Did you try playing in fury, and not in shiradi?
Shiradi isnt exactly ranger ed.

Please don't make this a gender thing. There are nice/good/capable/etc girls and guys in game and on the forums and there are jerks/bad players/etc girls and guys. It doesn't matter about gender in regards to learning how to play this game well. All it takes is being observant, talking to others, listening to advice from multiple sources and practicing your skills. Gear certainly helps but I've seen good players play with mediocre gear and still do good. I think your biggest problem was a knee-jerk reaction. Coming onto the forums and whining while trying to organize a protest might not have happened if you waited a day or two, especially since you've learned some new information from your guild leader.

Some people treated you poorly; some people treated you in a candid and honest manner and offered you advice. You are focused on the negative and seem not to acknowledge the positive.
Ungood gave you very good advice. Did you thank him for it?
My first post attempted to explain the paralysing issue and a later post of mine asked people to stop slamming you. Did you thank me?
Your recent post is a reply to Doxkid where you respond to him negatively even though he is just being factual and states he (and others) are willing to help you.
There are others who have not been negative to you on this thread. Do you acknowledge their respectful behaviour?
Do you see a pattern in you OWN behaviour?

Have a good day.

This was a bug and has been fixed; same with Archer's Focus fix. Many of us have seen helpful bugs get fixed which nerfed or "broke" our characters. My advice: get over it.

For future reference, it's a good idea to pay attention to the known issues list (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/150534-Official-Known-Issues) when building chars. It doesn't list everything that's broken / not WAI, but at least it gives you some idea of what's eventually gonna be fixed.

And what about our spells? Face it they just suck. The only ones worth anything is Freedom of Movement, Rams might, and maybe Cure serious wounds if you have gear or items that enhances it. But who has the space? After you HAVE to get Accuracy item, Deadly item, Seeking item, then something with a Fortitude, then a Resistance item, then a protection item, and a Natural armor bonus item, then the Will save item, and not to mention the stat items you need WHO has the space on their gear for a Healing amplification Item? I don't.
For better or for worse, the ranger spells have always been this way and are carried over from PnP. FoM used to be more useful, but they nerfed some of its blanket immunities, like Earth Grab; it's still useful against Hold, Web, etc. though. I agree that rgrs (and pallies) need an overhaul of their spells. I'd like to see both of them get CCW (let's face it, CSW alone doesn't cut it anymore in epics); and I'd like to see the CL caps on buffs like Barkskin and Resist Energy be removed or at least increased (again, +5 AC and resist 30 is almost a joke in epics). Something to post to the suggestions forum.

As for your gear: Natural Armor doesn't stack w/Barkskin so it can be dropped; only items w/Rough Hide will stack w/Barkskin (e.g., Parasitic Breastplate (http://ddowiki.com/page/Parasitic_Breastplate)). Not that AC is really worthwhile in the long run; Dodge / concealment / incorporeality bonuses count for more. Fortitude & Will save items don't stack with Resistance so they can be dropped; instead, you want Resistance + a Parrying or Riposte item for stacking saves bonuses. Everyone who needs heal amp should make PDK gloves (http://ddowiki.com/page/Purple_Dragon_Gauntlets) their first priority when hitting epics; fortunately, it also boosts your STR & CON, although the bonuses are overshadowed at higher lvls.

As for your DPS, I think this build (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/438383-Basic-Pure-Ranger-AA-build-for-FTP-account?p=5285448&viewfull=1#post5285448) is about as good as a F2P pure rgr can manage. If you've already got the feats etc. listed, then it's a matter of working on your ED(s); FotW is generally considered the best for pure rgrs, although LD is also a viable option. Most of all, though, playing a pure rgr means accepting that oftentimes you do more DPS in melee than with a bow.

Welcome to DDO. Sorry you can't make your ranger play the way you think it "ought" to work, but them's the breaks sometimes. BTW, have you tried Neverwinter? In a lot of ways I think it's a lesser MMO than DDO, despite being newer & prettier; but at least they made archery fun right from the get-go, I'll give them that. ;)

Umm, no. This is with a slayer arrows most definitely, or maybe an adrenaline arrow that didn't break the fort on the dummy.

Fully blitzing even with 90str and all the bonuses I'd doubt you'd go above a 550-600 first number without using slayer, sniper shot, etc.

Theres no way. I'd like to see a youtube video of this. You MIGHT hit that dummy for that much AFTER his has been downed the 1st time. And You had to of hit it with a slaying arrow with adrenaline. I've been playing Ranger Archers for years and just on the bow (the bow, no effects or elemental) the bow its self I've hit from 78 pts of dmg to 155 pts of dmg without slaying arrows. That's just a regular bow NOT the Pinon bow.

Theres no way. I'd like to see a youtube video of this. You MIGHT hit that dummy for that much AFTER his has been downed the 1st time. And You had to of hit it with a slaying arrow with adrenaline. I've been playing Ranger Archers for years and just on the bow (the bow, no effects or elemental) the bow its self I've hit from 78 pts of dmg to 155 pts of dmg without slaying arrows. That's just a regular bow NOT the Pinon bow.

its a helpless dumby if u read above lol on a unhelpless dumby roughly 140 first number and in quest 180-190 on a read named

Oh Really? Well I am fairly new. I am also female snip.

Why does your gender have to do with ANYTHING. This makes absolutely no sense.

Im pretty happy with my AA, hes elf pure ranger and I run in FoTW. With pin, Ottos, Adrenaline (with the 10 sec no save melee knockdown) paralyzer imbue, Im a solo machine. I have no problems soloing most EE content. I play a sneaky, divided and conquer style. Pull single EE mob, Ottos stops their advance, pin while they are ottoed and then andrenaline slayer arrow. Pull next single and maybe melee adrenaline knockdown and melee to finish. Theres lots of options for controlling the encounters. AA with FoTW are great for crowd control. And of course I can still kite 20 mobs around while pew pewing when needed.

If you had followed the attacks on the OP, you would understand.

I am also female so it takes me a little more time to learn to be a power creep like most you men are.

Don't sell yourself short, it's 2015.

It's obviously because females take
a little more time to learn to be a power creep


Men might be able to be power creeps, but they sure can't read like the wimmenfolk do.

With 25 different archer builds ( I run 17 and 10 of those a lot )

Anyways guildies warned me of the looming changes and prepare for 17 toons to suck.

I'm not gonna lie ..... I kinda like the changes to the 5 toons I've messed with so far

My pure ranger Ryleagh was the first to go through the changes .... I went from AA to DWS and so far so good.

Maybe it's the fact I don't sit there and crunch numbers like some ( really guys .. Life is too short ) ....

The toon plays nice ... I don't die any more than before in quests.

Would I like slayers that proc'd automatically again ?? Yup !! But just like Jesus that's not coming back either.

The Rangers that enjoy playing archers will struggle and emerge and move on. The number crunchers worried about every point of damage we now don't do will go back to hacking and slashing or spell casting.

All good .... I enjoyed archers better when there were fewer of us

We need to unite together to stop us from being downgraded any further. With the recent update we have been nerfed too far. I mean our class is almost unplayable now, the ED (Shiradi) we go into at epic level has been nerfed 2 times now already. We need to organize a riot or something along the lines of what everyone did on wayfinder to keep the hearts and tokens. I know that most of us that plays the Ranger class is the quite type that sit in the dark corners of the tavern and hardly ever speaks, Much like the real life rangers of the movies lol. But we need to stand up and take action and actually say something about this. I propose that all of us log in on Cannith server on the bridge in front of the Lordsmarch bank on 05/01/2014 @ 6:pm EST and sit there until we get something done about this.
My monk can multiple imbue her handwraps, My ranger used to be able to multiple imbue her arrows now she cant. I used to be able to paralyze the giants of Tor, now she cant. I used to be able to paralyze the undead, now she cant. She used to be able to paralyze dwarves in a relic of a sovereign past, now she cant. She used to be able to paralyze the elementals, now she cant.

And what about our spells? Face it they just suck. The only ones worth anything is Freedom of Movement, Rams might, and maybe Cure serious wounds if you have gear or items that enhances it. But who has the space? After you HAVE to get Accuracy item, Deadly item, Seeking item, then something with a Fortitude, then a Resistance item, then a protection item, and a Natural armor bonus item, then the Will save item, and not to mention the stat items you need WHO has the space on their gear for a Healing amplification Item? I don't.

Oh and have you also noticed your dps is down? I sure have. And its not from NOT having multiple imbued arrows either. My girl used to hit on the bow for 78 pts of dmg. AFTER the update she's hitting for 48 pts of dmg on the bow.

I'm not asking that the developers over power us, I'm just asking for my damm arrows back to the way they was before. Paralyze means just that. To Paralyze. I can live without the multiple imbues. But as for our spells they need some serious work in order to even be viable in epic content. Heck even in heroic content our spells are a joke.

Lol, this is a joke right?
