I have been debating for awhile about what to use my heroic characters for. I have decided I truly want a ranger-it was my first toon back in 2000, I have always loved the class, and I would like to begin one. Right now I box a mage/bard duo, with my focus playing the magician throughout the fight. I pull on bard, auto attack and /melody and be done with bard, save for an alt TAB back to bard to lower aggro. It is how I play on one laptop. If I do mage and ranger, the ranger is auto attack. Well, auto fire. Ranger would be good for some buffs and initial crowd control, but I would not be doing much on ranger. If I do bard and ranger, the bard will be the auto attack. I would be casting spells on ranger, like I do on my mage. Given the play style and my situation, which is the better duo? Thanks in advance for opinions and replies.
