Expertise is the primary attribute of Rangers.

For each rank of Expertise, the Energy cost of all of your attacks, Rituals, touch skills and Rangers [sic] skills are decreased by 4%. Several skills, especially those related to Energy costs and skill recharge times, become more effective with higher Expertise.
