Come on, let's get this stickied already! This is by far the best AA information out there for rangers. I've come back to this thread numerous times, and every time I've learned something. Don't let it get buried again, please!

You can float threads to the top for your own view.  It's that little white box with the blue arrow to the right.  It's a very useful tool.  It'll show up in the stickied section.

Yeah intoxication is a worthless ability imo, I thought it'd be 2 min of poison which could be put on all mobs in aoe with a 2 minute recast. I finally stopped being lazy and got the last AA i needed to get it, had it for 6 minutes and used my free respec to get rid of it. I might be wrong but i personally think poison crits are over rated.  If it was still during t6 i'd be hot [expletive haxx0red by Raijinn] with the amount of procs you could get off poison,  but now procs just seem to infrequent, and would much rather find better ways to dps the rely on a % based off some bs formula soe developed

Well, seeing as how I'm a very unselfish person who wants everyone to have access to good info without having to dig through pages and pages of irrelevant threads, I think a sticky is a much more useful solution than a little white box with a blue arrow to the right.

Stickies FTW!

just finished out my agility line and I definately like the faster casts...I think I will enjoy that alot...

Now figuring out what I will put the other points into...no hurry for me though...considering it will probably take me another 5 mos. to get to 50th level in AA's...

I am thinking strength all the way though.

To me, poise is worth it just to make the Ranger class less boring. SMILEY  Faster cast times feel more interactive/demanding, which is fun for me.  After getting poise, I felt less like a mage, getting more CAs under Focus, etc.  We have ridiculously long cast timers for a scout class - and no good reason for it.

Ranger and boring in the same post, I have never ever felt my ranger was boring, I think you need to work a bit on your melee skills. If you stand back and just chuck arrows at mobs your missing out on a lot of fun, I have seen a lot of Rangers doing this. I split my ca's into 2 catagories one for melee and one for ranged. Rangers are one of the most balanced toons as far as what you can do in a fight.
 
Try using your arrows, moving in to melee, when your ranged strikes come back up move back out again. If you get to the right distance you can mix both ranged and melee without moving at all. If your grouped with a reasonable tank, they should turn it so you can strike from behind.
 
Remember that a ranger isnt Just an Archer.

Yea i've got to agree...In my case, going with the Int line, you want to be close to the action to get off that poison debuff then the poisoning and melee hit.  Not to mention i can have every arrow shot greyed out , and half my melee without breaking a sweat...  Some day i'm going to learn to use macro's, but until then...I'll just be a quick button masher.  SMILEY

I am a bit confused (noob and all). It appears in EOF that there are 2 pages of Abilities. What you talk about in the description seems to apply to "PREDATOR" page, and the Ranger page is really hard to understand. Any comments on this 2 page system yet? Thnx for the post, it is still very useful to understand to overall concept.

In EoF there are 2 pages of AA abilities, the "Predator" and the "Ranger"    The "predator" list if from KoS and is shared with our assassin cousins.

You can place any AA points that you earn into either of the lists, but you CAN NOT transfer them from one page to the other.  Once an AA is placed in the "Ranger" list it stays there.  However; you can re-spec and change them around inside a list. You get a free re-spec, but then have to pay for any future changes.

There are several threads below about what AA combinations are best for various ranger flavors, i.e. PvP, Raiding, Solo, grouping, melee, etc.  Search through and read the old posts to get an idea of what other rangers are doing

Hope this helped

Thanx for reply.

I will keep reading. At level 18 and have been assigning my AA to the predator page. So I will see how it plays out, and as advised reassign if it does not fit my style.

Thanks again.

SMILEY Just the other day I got the AA line finished out on the predator page and got the Poise skill. I know this will be a noob type question; but I figure that the Poise skill would show up on the combat type arts? Meaning I would then have to put it in a hot bar and activate before battling? But I can not find it and am making the assumption that this is an automatic skill and once you get it is always in affect? Next question would be should I continue to max out the AA's for the pre req skill up to Poise? I am also doing the STR tree on that, since I do normally stand back, kick off a bunch of arrow CA's then run in and cut them up. Once the arrow CA's are back, move back and fire away. Rinse and repeat for best results.SMILEY Guess I will spend a couple more AA's to get the STR skill also.

If its a passive skill it means that it is on all the time, and doesnt have to be activated.

The original poster did a great job on one set of AA trees but unfathomably left out any discussion in the Ranger AA tree. Can someone add a discussion for the Ranger tree?

Nice Job on discussing some of the AA abilities.However, you left out any discussion on the pure ranger side such as the multi-shot or poison line. What do you think of these? Please elaborate.

sirmorte, this thread dates from well before the EoF AA lines came out.  There are multiple threads below that discuss the ranger line. Just search for them.
