    Default Bard/Ranger

    Was thinking about making my ranger/bard 14/6. Now I am thinking 12/6/2 for 2 levels in rogue.
    What do you think? Mainly want to use longbow.

    You will already get evasion from ranger. So instead of rogue I'd try fighter, maybe even go helf and pick up the rogue dilly.

    Im currently a human on my first play with him and just planning thing out.

    I was thinking of going AA/Virtuoso, or AA/WC

    Main thing is, what I am looking at, would it be viable for raids and group play. I know solo will be fine.

    If you want an AA (who's not a pure rgr), you don't want human; you want elf or HE so you can take the racial AA PrE. Otherwise you'll miss out on the higher-lvl imbues (Slaying Arrows FTW!).

    Have a look at this rgr / bard build. It's Tempest, but I think I posted an AA variant in the thread.

    Good to know. But I am curious if there is a way to make him viable as ranged by being human. I am willing to go fighter for 2 levels or so. But I want to mainly be party support/secondary dps. The main thing is I want to make sure I am viable for end game.

    As a mostly-ranger build, you'd already have all the ranged feats free; in particular, Manyshot+Imp Prec Shot gives every rgr great burst DPS. But to get the full benefit from AA, you need access to the higher-lvl imbues.

    However, if you really want a bard-based ranged support toon, have a look at my Bardcher thread. Taking more bard lvls will improve your bardsongs and give you access to higher-lvl buffs & heals.
