PLAYING A RANGER

At 1st-level:

  • The 'Favored Enemy' and 'Natural Explorer' features are very situational, but equally valuable when relevant
  • Is proficient in five decent skills and four languages
  • The Ranger is incredibly sturdy for a class that often stays at the outskirts of combat encounters

Later on:

  • The Ranger's damage output increases drastically at 2nd level thanks to the 'Archery' Fighting style and the access to spells (notably the classic Hunter's mark)
  • Often struggles with many of their spells and features requiring Concentration, which stunts the class's tactical options
