    Well from what I've seen so far, there isn't anything impressive in those trees.

    You need to look at his post again. Specifically this part below what you quoted.

    Did they seperate out racial from class PrEs? Can an elf be both tempest and AA or Deepwood and AA when taking classes of Ranger?

    Or is ranger still behind the rest of the multi classing combs because of this?

    Other than what you can feasibly reach with the amount of enhancement points you get, there is no longer a restriction on taking enhancement classes.

    That is to say a pure ranger could now be an arcane tempest even were he a half orc. Assuming you can meet all requirements I would imagine.

    All classes can take multiple PREs from their class. Any Ranger (regardless of race) can be an Arcane Archer and a Tempest at the same time.

    Though you cannot take all Arcane Archer enhancements and all Tempest enhancements at the same time.

    That is still the most awesome thing I have heard in years. I hope the racial PRE's will more than make up for the fact that everyone will now get to play in the elves/helves backyard.

    At first glance, I do not really like what I am seeing.

    I am now forced to take several useless things in deepwood sniper to get my favorite enemy damage back? Not cool at all.

    Where did my racial toughness go?

    Also forcing us to take heal to get useful positive spellpower sucks big time, hopefully you are planning on upping the amount of skill points toons get per level.

    There are a lot of other things I have not worked out yet, the amount of possibilities are staggering so it is going to take time to fully grasp what can be done and what is going to suck.

    However, the new arrow imbues look really nice.

    One note on the paralysis arrow effect: I'd strongly recommend altering that to 10+1/2 character level + a point expenditure to avoid both heavily front-loading the effect for early game, and leaving it obsolete after things further inflate.

    The Ranger trees look amazing.

    The ranged combat trees appear to have some tantalizing options for big attacks in Fury of the Wild as well as some really nice debuffs for extra group damage. The imbue options for AA arrows are great. Good job on the toggles for bypassing damage reduction. It's great to see that Arcane Archer and Deepwood Sniper each have a way of reducing enemy fortification, and AA has a way to increase general damage vulnerability. It is particularly appealing that rangers are not only getting buffed, it appears, but are going to make the whole party better if utilized properly.

    In Tempest I really like the inclusion of haste boost and the ways to temporarily add a lot of dodge bonus and doublestrike.

    Very good changes overall.

    Something to consider, unless I have overlooked something (very possible at this early stage), is positive spellpower. I realize that some of this is being made up for with the heal skill, but unless rangers get a way to up it in class trees, rangers are going to get hurt on self healing.

    That's like finding a bright-side for amputation being you don't have to spend as much on shoes.

    and slaying is not an imbue any longer? is an attack? with a cooldown? nerf.

    edit: ok - now after some thought - it is possible to have an imbue and slay shot... so not a nerf - a change.
