Neverwinter has targeted the Hunter Ranger for the first of presumably many class revamps coming to the D&D game. Hunter Rangers were chosen because their DPS is noticeably lacking in comparison with other classes, to the point where only one specific build is being used in an attempt to stay viable.
The long and the short of the upcoming revamp is that Hunter Rangers will pump out more damage and simply work better. “There are a ton of other changes — around 100 patch notes for the Hunter Ranger changes alone,” Cryptic posted. “The end goal was to get to a place where all three feat builds — as well as both paragon paths — felt useful.”
