Ranger3.PNG Ranger is an archetype in Ashes of Creation.[3]

Death from afar is the ranger's raison d'etre. A master of the bow and ranged combat, the Ranger is more than happy to let others get their hands dirty. No one else has such a keen eye in natural environments.

Q: Tank has resolve, Cleric has divine power, what does Ranger have?
A: That's a very good question. It is the interaction between the Hunts and the Marks. That is something that we're going to be focusing in on a little bit more. Right now, that is still something that the combat team is working on for the Ranger class.[4]Steven Sharif
Q: Why was the minimum distance required removed for the Rangers ranged attacks?
A: Originally when I was thinking about the Ranger, I had thought about introducing a minimum range requirement in order to offset its flexibility in combat and having them think a little bit more strategically about positioning on the battlefield. That became an un-fun experience when we playtested it and so we decided to remove it. Instead we may choose to play around with things like range too close affecting something maybe like accuracy. We haven't playtested with that. Or, we just might not incorporate it and instead let it live within the abilities you saw. An example of that with regards to the lightning ability having variable effects conferred at different ranges. That right now is the approach that we're taking.[5]Steven Sharif

The majority of a Ranger's skill tree will likely be ranged, but there will be options to incorporate melee aspects.[6]

  • Some abilities require a bow to be equipped.[7][8][9][10]
  • Instead of a minimum range requirement, certain Ranger skills, such as Thundering Shot, currently have variable effects conferred at different ranges.[5]
  • The majority of Ranger abilities allow movement while casting. Only a few abilities impose movement penalties while casting.[7]

Ranger augments

Hunts will be a Ranger school of augmentation.[35]

Hunts will be discussed in a future update. They are a Ranger specific mechanic, and also a school of the Ranger’s augments. They confer a number of different types of effects to your target, but the fx are particularly fun.[35]Steven Sharif

Ranged weapons

A character may equip up to two hand weapons and also wear a ranged weapon on their back.[9][10][39]
