Feedback:User/Skye Marin/Underused Skills Update - Ranger

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Here is a short list of Ranger skills that I feel are extremely underused, outclassed by other skills, or have no use in general. Updating these skills to make them useful will refresh the meta, and help better define class roles. These changes have been made with PvP in mind. All gradients are from 0..15.
