I noticed that level two Rangers can dual wield. All characters can dual wield, does this mean that the penalty is reduced? If I go Ranger would I not want to get the dual wield feat?
What benefits do I get choosing a Ranger over a fighter, specifically ranged attack benefits?
I am thinking of making a Ranger Thief combination. Depending on their bonuses and such I might consider throwing in some fighter (for feats), and/or Paladin (for resistances).
Anything I should consider? Could anyone please suggest some class combinations that might be good?
I want a dex based mele class that focuses on ranged attacks. I want to put a few levels of Thief for the backstab bonuses (i might also pump trap and lock abilities). I was planning on Ranger because they are good at distance attacking.
What do you think?
