I got into a disagreement over the utility of pure rangers with a friend yesterday and opened my yap one too many times. Now I'm committed to one day taking a pure ranger into Caught in the Web on Epic Elite and usefully contributing.
Thing is, I know general consensus around here is that pure rangers are gimp. So what I need is advice on how to make a pure ranger who isn't gimp anyway. I have all races unlocked, a Monk toon at 25th level and nearly ready to TR for his first time, and a great willingness to listen to advice.
