More About Rangers

More About Rangers - Guild Wars 2 -

ArenaNet developer Eric Flannum has been spending time zipping around the 'net looking for any questions regarding last week's revealing new information about the Guild Wars 2 ranger class. The official GW2 blog has been updated with the questions he's found and his responses.

Q: I want to play a ranger without a pet. Are pets mandatory for the profession to be effective? Can you have a non-pet ranger like in GW1 and not sacrifice a lot of your effectiveness?

Eric: Rangers must use their pets to achieve maximum effectiveness. A ranger could choose to mostly ignore his pet and leave it on “auto-pilot” so to speak and still be very effective, but a ranger who doesn’t even have a pet out will be a good deal less effective than one who does. There are many other professions in Guild Wars 2 that have effective ranged damage or ranged utility like the ranger for players who don’t want to use a pet.

Check out the Ranger Q&A.
