Posted on December 9, 2010, Shawn Sines War of Angels: Introducing the Rangers
We’re continuing our exclusive first looks at the characters and classes of the upcoming War of Angels. Last time we talked tank with the fighters. This outing we move on to a more subtle class option with the Ranger.
Rangers in War of Angels are the strikers of the party, built to pull and lure with strong ranged attacks and stun foes so the tanks can move in to deal direct assault. There is a bit more strategy involved in being the scout for your team and the Ranger is ideal in that role. Their snare attacks ensure that while scouting ahead they can delay reaction from enemies, giving preparation time to the Mage, Fighter and Rogue.
The Ranger, like all the classes in War of Angels, gets the option at 20th level to specialize into one of two major areas – the Archer and the Hunter. Since Rangers can use traditional ranged weapons like the gun or bow, the path you take is likely to depend on your preference. Hunters wield guns and deliver massive damage at range while Archers favor more precision and trap or ensnare enemies while dealing ranged assaults.
