Crowfall looks at the early version of the Ranger’s powers

More like up-close-er at this point, am I right? No. No, I am not right.

The Ranger is not a ranged character in Crowfall, but she’s also not a melee character. She’s a hybrid between the two playstyles, able to swap between fighting with daggers or with a bow based on circumstances. As the newest article on the Ranger explains, this came about almost entirely because one of the possible circumstances for the Ranger was “I have no more arrows.” The developers wanted ranged attacks to use arrows as a resource, and the ability to swap between melee and ranged attacks became a natural option.

This early peek at Ranger abilities highlights the idea that arrows are your primary resource in ranged combat, with a heavy emphasis on precision aiming to land attacks. In melee combat, Rangers make use of energy as a resource and have a variety of options for dealing with foes, defeating them, and moving in and out of range depending on safety. Combined with the ability to conceal herself when not moving, attacking, or being attacked, the Ranger has plenty of options to wait and line up just the right shot, then carve up targets with melee strikes if she so desires. Or if she’s just plain out of arrows.

Loved Ranger in Vanguard where you could make your own arrows with foraging. Still my favorite itteration of the Ranger class in an MMO.

Francis courant BritoBruno Hum. Sad. It looks beautiful and i’ll be rooting for this game from the shadows, but i can’t stand lockings. It simply destroys the immersion for me.

BritoBruno Some archetypes are gender locked (currently guinecean, forgemaster, legionnaire, myrmidon, stalker) and I think all humanoid archetypes will have a certain degree of face customization (beard, skin color, hair color), I’m not sure about monster archetypes.

Are the classes gender/appearance locked?

The lack of videos has been holding my interest back. I see beautiful screenshots but no footage of the work in progress. Are there any Ranger videos?

ProfessionalNoob Pepperzine Would have zero problem with that if they gave magic classes alternate skill sets that would allow to the valuable when they run out of reagents rather than becoming speed bumps.

Had no issue issue with Ammo when playing DAoC and have no issue with it here.  I think they are developing a ranger class that should be pretty damn fun to play.

HDHarris I agree, i think this interpretation is awesome.  I would be tempted to skill a ranger up stronger in melee than in archery so when someone gets close thinking they are an easy target up close, they get a nasty surprise.
