Best Skills And Perks For The Ranger


The Ranger is known for using the basic combination with the Bow & Arrow. There are three types of bows that you can equip for the Ranger, they are:

  • Long Bow
  • Re-Curved Bow
  • Survival Bow

The Long Bow is the hardest-hitting bow that deals the most damage, but is the slowest of them all. With the Long Bow, you also get reduced movement speed.

The survival an bow does less damage but has increased fire rate and your movement speed is also increased.

The Re-Curved bow is in the middle. It has a little bit of both, damage and fire rate.

If you want the best choice for either PVP or PVE, we strongly recommend trying out both the Re-Curved and Long Bow to see which one will suit you best.

For secondary weapon, the Ranger can go with the Arming Sword or the Rapier. They are both great weapons of choice.

The Rapier is slightly better than the Arming Sword, due to the faster abilities and quick animations. Melee damage only occurs with the Ranger whenever you need to finish off an enemy or try to get out of a situation.

A great perk for your melee damage is that the Ranger can use spears. Spears are great weapons if you want to have melee fights but always have the high grounds due to the longer melee damage range.
