    Default Ranger Capstone: Master of Archery

    In DDO, Rangers receive both the archery and two-weapon combat styles as they level up. In our testing of module nine, we found that while their melee ability was strong, at the highest levels their ranged combat lacked a little something...

    Ranger Master of Archery
    Prereqs: Level 20 Ranger
    Cost: 2 Action Points
    Benefit: The speed at which you can fire any ranged weapon is legendary. Gain a 25% competence bonus to ranged attack speed.

    Very nice boost to ranged combat indeed. Its just too bad that a ranged based ranger has to suffer through 19 levels before getting this.

    Bad capstone:
    1. Non-ranged rangers will be underwhelmed by this.
    2. Non-ranger ranged combatants will be upset by this. First Bow Strength and now this.
    3. Has the potential of being overpowered. If not, it shows how underwhelming ranged combat is and shows where the priorities should have been put at in the first place (ie fixing ranged combat for everyone by increasing the rate of fire by 25%).
    4. Sucks for any ranged ranger who multiclassed, even a level. It's a huge bump in power that should not be this late nor on a single level.
    5. Sucks for non-level 19 rangers who will suck, until they get the capstone. One should have to wait to reach level 20 to be effective.

    Default Darn It ...

    I was hoping that ranged wasn't going to be a capstone, but more along the lines of Tempest (i.e. 6, 12, 18) and that you would have to pick one ...

    Guess I'm going to have to roll that sweet young elven lass (Monk2/Ranger2) again...

    That really didn't come out well ... but now that I think about it ...


    Who wouldn't want to roll a sweet elven lass ...

    Yeah, but we've always known that. and I'll trade a FE and +2 damage for a 2 level splash any way. SO much more useful overall.

    You forgot

    5. Makes ranged rangers seem a reasonable choice(they gave us a capstone, we have to be good...don't we?).

    And just to make sure for those Rangers who specialized in Throwing Weapons instead of Bows this will cover their speed in Throwing Axes, Daggers, Etc...?,
    If so, then thanks Turbine, if not.....

    don't hate it ...not in love w/ it either ...maybe there will be differnt capstones later ...but ranged combat does need some love but having to go 20 ranger to get it might casue some issues for some

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO

    My Ranged Ranger (Arcane Archer) is from PRE MOD 1!

    I have a single level of fighter, from way back in the day when shot on the run was manatory.

    I do not want to reroll this guy because of some stupid capstone that makes 20 ranger the only plausible way to make a ranged character. This is the worst thing I have seen from you guys in a while.



    Edit: I am so extremely angry right now, something very unlike me (considering this is just a game), that I have to physically walk away from my comptuer to prevent myself from typing something I will later regret and/or get infraction points for.

    Yes, Ranged combat in general needs the love.. Should not be reservered specifically for l20 Rangers.
