Introduction

Ranger is one of the 8 Primary Classes in Ashes of Creation. Learn more about the arrow slinger, in our Ashes of Creation Ranger Guide

General Information

Ranger is a ranged-focused class that will have a small amount of melee skills as well. Most of the Ranger’s Skills will require a Bow. Though it was stated before that the Ranger class would have a minimum Ranger, that is no longer the case. Instead, a lot of the Ranger’s abilities will have special effects at different ranges away from your targets.

The Ranger class will be available during Alpha 2. As we get more information on the Ranger class, well keep this guide updated!
