Ranger


- Beast Mastery - Expertise - Marksmanship - Wilderness Survival - No Attribute -


Rangers are unique in their ability to succeed with the help of, or even in spite of, their environment. Nature rituals allow them to manipulate terrain to hinder their enemies, or borrow the very power of creation to heal and aid their allies. They favor long-range combat, the bow being their weapon of choice, and can be especially effective from elevated locations such as bridges and cliffs.

They are the only profession with the ability to charm animals, which then accompany them on their travels and assist them in battle, gaining levels and abilities over time. Rangers are also blessed with survival skills that help keep them alive despite their lightweight armor.









All skills are shown with minimum and maximum values. The minimum is with 0 points in the related attribute; the maximum is with 15 points in the related attribute. It is possible to have more than 15 points in a given attribute, but values will need to be calculated on the 15-point figures given in the individual descriptions.
Beast Mastery - Points in this attribute improve your animal companion's basic attack damage, as well as skills that help to keep your companion from harm.
Expertise - Primary Attribute (available to Primary Rangers only). Points in this attribute decrease the Energy cost of your attack skills, preparations, and traps.
Marksmanship - Points in this attribute increase your basic bow damage, as well as damage dealt by bow skills.
Wilderness Survival - Points in this attribute improve defensive Stances, Preparations, and Traps.
No Attribute - Some skills in each profession are not directly tied to a character's attributes. Unlike other skills that can be improved with the application of points into a specific attribute, these skills do not change, but are static in their properties.
