I thought it would be a good idea to discuss focus effects and their use for a ranger.

I've decided on mine but I'd like some opinions from others to make sure I haven't missed one that's important. I can't remember all of them off the top of my head though.

So there are a few no brainers, like the improvements to quick shot, storm of arrows, etc, that obviously increase your DPS.

But what about the rest? Which focus effects have you chosen?

For a new ranger, what ones would be the choice at what level?

I haven't bothered with the one that improves our defensive stance, as I am never in it, for example.

I picked the + potency and + CB ones at the end because I felt I ran out of useful ones to pick, but I may change that after discussions on here.

I got all the ranger specific ones except for the defensive stance. The general ones don't seem that good outside of PvP imo, but i'm never in defensive stance either so I took the 2 crit bonus.

I took in-combat run speed instead of the triple shot one.

I took all the ranger ones, EXCEPT:

Primal Reflexes -10% hate - In group/raid, chances are you are going to either have a troub and cap you, or Peaceful link.

Nox enfeeblement - 50% accuracy - It hits 98% of the time anyway, its not worth any more

So I took the CB and Potency ones instead.

I kept defensive stance as its nice for BG's *shrugs*

I took primal reflexes as I find hate reduction useful, don't raid and don't always have a bard in group. Didn't bother with focus aim or nox infeeblement or defensive stance. Got potency and cb ones.
