03-17-2015, 05:57 PM
Its a combo of flavour build AND serious build AND preparing for a potential ranger improvement pass :P

I am on my last pastlife for my pure ranger and I am after some help please

PLs: I have 3xPali (heal amp) 3xmonk (damage) and 3xranger (damage). I dont feel the +HP from barb is worth it for running PLs. Anything I absolutely am missing out here?

Elf or helf? I prefer elf and currently plan to go aerenal grace and do damage with dex

I am keen to try out a doubleshot build and leave out manyshot. Any advice on maxing doubleshot?

max dex
~max con
enough int to max heal, conc & umd (looks like I can dump it: Skill points at each additional level: 6 + Intelligence modifier.)
whatever else into wis
dump str
dump cha

Deepwood or AA tier 5s?

Anything else to consider?

TBH, I doubt you can get your Doubleshot high enough to make up for the slow fire rate of bows. You might actually find Tilomere's repeater ranger (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/456590-69-basic-repeater-ranger) more interesting. It appears 69% Doubleshot is as high as you can get it on a pure rgr.

Cheers for the input Un

I am keen to know if anyone has any thoughts on the new ranged power increase in the next update? The new bow looks **** but I cant really understand the upgrade(?) system
