I'd like your opinions on how you think rangers are now we're in 2012. I play a ranger as my main and only level 90 toon. I'm very casual, the odd hour here and there and the odd Saturday morning. I have played EQ2 for about 3 years although I did have a big break in the middle when I moved countries. I played EQ1 from 1999 to 2006 also. I love my ranger. I can't imagine another class being as fun to me. I've put in a lot of time and effort into playing as him so I don't think I could ever replace him as my main character. Having said that, I think until you get 275AA+ (which I don't), and DoV raid gear (again, which I don't), then we're not amazing for DPS. Considering we don't add much else to groups other than a little hate transfer, I think we rangers need a little boost. We are overlooked for most groups and raids unless we're lucky. Other classes offer so much more on top of DPS or just better DPS full stop. I see other level 90 classes soloing places I could only dream, and getting the groups to go get the cool loot and progress, and it's a bit disheartening. But I still log on as my ranger every time. Once I have near max AA, maybe I'll do better DPS and be more useful, but in the meantime, I just have to accept that I help a bit but I'm not near the top of the parses and I don't bring anything else to the group/raid. So I spend most of my time going over old content trying to raise my AA and do the quests I missed because I rarely get into a group.
