I dunno why everyone keeps goin on about the "ranged only" stuff, theres really only 1 maybe two fights out there that you could possibly use ranged only to some actuall benifit.If you ask me, having utility like poison combination = any ranged advantage we might have... Hell, every scout/mage class is able to do pretty good damage at range.. And at range, most mage classes (summoners/wizards) will outdamage any ranger in a range fight..And, a brigand can stay toe to toe with a mob for the entire fight without having to worry about AE. And still come ontop on the ranger in a ranged only fight..

Hi Everyone, hows it going?  Good good good.
 
And to Jay42 and everyone, why is it that whenever I am behind an SUV...a BIG SUV like an expedition or something...and we come up to train tracks or some small pothole or dip in the road...They Have to swerve around it like they are driving a lowrider pick-up?  I mean...COME ON!! You are driving a truck that has almost 15 full inches between the bottom of it and the ground...my crown victoria has no issues going over the tracks...what is wrong with you people?
 


I drive an Expedition. These days, they're not all that big. I mean, next to an H2 they look puny. Like a 2-door Explorer. And what is it with Explorer drivers, anyway? In my studied opinion, and after 10+ years of hard-earned research on the highways and byways of Chicago, I've come to the inescapable conclusion that Explorer drivers are nothing more than reckless, thoughtless, cheap, lying, no-good, rotten, tail-gating, floor-flushing, low-life, horn-honking, snake-licking, dirt-eating, inbred, overstuffed, ignorant, blood-sucking, dog-kissing, brainless, d*ickless, hopeless, heartless, fat-arsed, bug-eyed, stiff-legged, snotty-lipped, worm-headed sacks of monkey shi*t!

Hallejulia! Holy SH*IT!

Ow. What were we talking about? LoreLady was saying something, but I got distracted. Sorry.

One needs more then Tylenol to cope with driving in Chicago! Some sort of stress relief is needed. Something like Stupid Seeking Missiles behind the headlights.Yeah, that would work. Just launch one or two of those a day, and your commute is instantly better.

 

Now lets get back on topic.

My thanks. SMILEY That has to be my favorite all-time movie quote. Has me in tears every time I see Chevy Chase's bug-eyed rage. I'm chuckling silently even now.

This would work as long as you're able to dodge exploding debris.

And yes, I agree. Back on topic. My apologies. SMILEY

So, does that mean:

A) You want it to die? You ain't helping by rezzing it after 5 days of lying undisturbed :smileytongue:

B) You want it to really 'burn' in a flame fest? Well, it's gotten kind of lame. And I have no real good ideas for flame bait either... :smileyvery-happy:

If as a Ranger you are arguing that you wish you would have done more dmg than why not betray to assasin as many of you have done?



Do you also suggest that when someone has a headache they simply visit the local guillotine?

I'm afraid your proposed solution is nothing more than an easy cop-out.  Nothing against those rangers who have already betrayed.  I even considered it myself for a while.  But betraying doesn't solve the problem of a lack of viability in the class.


No i am suggesting people to play a class that is more fun for there purpose.

People should play there classes to have fun!! right?

Why would you want to play a class if you are not having fun?

If your idea of fun is T7 Raid. Then pick Assasin.

If your idea of fun is showing off your uber leet bow to the ladies then pick Ranger:smileywink:

You can only have one thing. Ladies or Hard core raiding experience(for nerds).

Or you can take my option - seriously contemplating not buying another gamecard after it expires in october and staying away from the ranger class for good.. They seriously goofed it in EQ1 - they goofed it for the 3rd time in EQ2.

Or...You can ask for the same thing that SOE did for assassins...and that is to make them a viable raiding class.Every responsible ranger I know was asking for this in the DoF days, as were assassins.  And they got it.

You know you can't have logical discussions while I am in the building!

Why do banana's enjoy driving tractors?
