    Default A new low in class discrimination

    Invaders. Level range 15-20. Let me repeat. 15-20. The group has a sorc, cleric, fighter, two pali's. The group is only accepting fighter, pali, barbarian, monk. /cry.

    This is getting more common place as time goes on.

    Probably because there are so many Rangers,omg so many Rangers/Ranger combos and they don't really serve any role that another class can't do better. <shrugs>

    Unfortunately true seriously lets take a look:


    Rangers do great Melee DPS; So do fighters, pallys, barbarians, and (if built for it) Battle Clerics

    Rangers also do Great ranged DPS; So do Sorcs and Wizards

    Rangers can heal... sorta: Bard, fav soul, cleric all do it better.

    Rangers can be stealthy and sneak around killing stuff; Rogue, nuf said.

    Rangers have a few buff spells; bard, sorc, wiz, cleric take your pick there all better.

    For most people this is a good party:

    Cleric
    Rogue
    Bard
    Caster (Wiz/Sorc)
    x2 Tank (Barb, Pali, Ftr, Monk)

    Rangers and to some extent bards get ignored allot. it's not there fault. Are rangers bad? Not at all, I have seen some really good ones, problem is I have also seen some really bad ones and when given a choice between a fighter, a barb, a pali and a ranger I am gonna take the fighter or barb over the ranger any day. It takes skill to be even a mediocre ranger but anyone who can swing a stick can be a good fighter or barbarian. Ranger's are a roll of the dice. fighter, barb, pali are just safer.

    Unfortunately, there are still a number of rogues out there that cannot handle DPS if they have the attention of a mob. Add to this a lower hit point pool and its obvious why this happens. Now, there are a number of rogues out there that can handle this job, but people generally don't expect it and commonly believe that a tank is needed for a number of quests where it isn't.

    By your own description, it's actually a new HIGH in discriminating factors.

    I don't know what is worse, groups that remove rangers and such from the list when they need DPS or the groups that have an LFM up showing all classes and then ignore your join request.

    Rangers aren't the only class missing. After all, who wants a Bard when you're fighting creatures with DR many of the melee won't be able to penetrate and beholders which strip away all magical buffs.

    I always keep at least one slot open for bards in my group, if I can find one. Bards are always good in a party if there built well. The problem is the "built well" part. Bards are rare as it is and good ones are a down right endangered species.

    Try getting into a group as an 8bard/6ranger/2fighter!! Not an easy task. And when ya do, they get all weird when you double there kill count
    Some people just have no imagination

    "Hit points=DPS! You aren't doing ANY DPS when ur dead!"
    and like that,.......he was gone.

    I am trying to imagine how you double anyone's kill count when there are a finite number of critters to kill and if there aren't, killing faster almost always means facing fewer due to a quicker win .
