Hello peeps, i just made a new toon and kinda new to this game and couldnt make a ranger or hunter class for my Iskar so i made a assassin. Wasnt sure if i be happy with her. Anyway someone mention that i can switch class, but dunno how.

I need decesnt melee class incase range attack failed, wasnt sure if ranger or assassin, or other class i be comfortable with. I like to sneak (optional) using bow as primary weapon. For tradeskill for crafting, havent decide what to become. Im more of aquatic type, cuz i like to hang out near the water or ocean.

Can anyone give me some advise?

Yes you can betray to a good city, no problem.  I suggest doing it sooner rather than later.

Well im trying to change class from assassin to ranger without alignment. I want to stick with evil dues to diety. And i think what you saying is called exiled, someone mention that you have to see someone in a tavern. Let me dig up some infos from wiki and see. My toon is lvl 11 atm.

After reading few paragraphs on wiki while on betrayal, only alignment will shift as well class. So there no way i can do what i wanted to do. I can understand that if i want to be ranger ended up over evil sides, there is no ranger trainers around except over in faydark where woodelves hang out.

Pretty sure you can keep your diety even after you change alignments.  Problem is you wont be able to switch back and forth at all. 

There is a betrayal quest starter in the EFP inn.  Not sure if he has a feather over his head, but as you come close he says something to you to get your attention.  I think you can stay exiled and be either class.  But maybe thats just for classes that are not good only or evil only.

Assassins have no usefull ranged attack abilities whatsoever.  Rangers primarily use a bow but they also have not that bad melee abilities.  From what you said you are looking for in a class ranger is definatly the only class that fits that discription.

WHAT!? You obviously have never played an asin (edit: wow you have an 80 asin so you must just suck), so don't speak what you don't know. Yes ranger is more for him, but asins can do quite a bit of ranged damage as well. Most damage from asins are up close.. but to say ranged is not useful??? That's just stupid. My asin often takes down solo single mobs before they even get to me and my bow sucks. In raids and heroic mobs its about using both close and ranged combat.

Also maybe if you weren't a pve scrub, you'd see even more how useful ranged is for us pvpers.

I just want to try it out, i like assassin too. Realise that rangers doesnt have much melee combos as much assassins does. I like them both, guess i like using the bows alot but when it come to melee gotta figured something out fast or wont be able to finish the job.

Beside i will stick with assassin!

What the hell is your problem?  Ranged attacks on assassin are NOT useful whatsoever except for specific raid fights where it is not possible to melee.

PS: PvP sucks, go play WoW I think it would be a better game for a person of your limited maturity.

What the hell, your so right!  Ranged attacks on assassin are EXTREMELY useful  except for specific raid fights where it is not possible to range.

PS: PvP is the win, if you go play WoW I think it would be a crappy game for a person of your excelled maturity.

Fixed, so you don't embarass yourself.

I don't think its correct to say he JUST got raged since anything that happened in this thread happened darn near a year ago.  Thee only thing that just happened was someone who doesn't understand dates necro'd the thread. 

BTW, who is AP?
