    Does subtle backstabbing work with ranged?

    No. Only thing that reduces ranged threat is Stealth Strike.

    Bluff and diplo do work with ranged. Diplo is good for shedding the agro you have. When you use it you might want to hold off on attacking for a couple seconds to give someone else time to grab agro. Bluff has two mechanics. The first makes the targeted mob vulnerable to sneak attacks for 6 seconds, that definitely works. The second reduces your threat gen for a short time. I'm not certain if this property affects ranged attacks as most other threat reduction affects do not. My repeater mechanic has both because I had the points to spare. I use diplo to shed agro when i have it and bluff to get sneak attacks if I can't. Although, if I had a radII repeater I probably wouldn't even bother with bluff.
