Slight update, Very similar meta. Definitely the most dependable ranger build by far atm and can be played in ranked and tournaments to a high level. With healing spring+ nature magic and menders ranger becomes probably one of if not the tankiest side noder and if you play that same build with marksmenship it is still really dependable and can do some really good damage. The toughness variants are still fairly good and the damage on a Valkyrie build is fairly nutty- it actually feels alot like nades holo as valk, but has less aoe damage so you should focus on get kills in duels, and it can farm kills on even tankier things like druids. Summary: still up to date, strong and dependable and has a good bit of build variety

I'd say this is a good build, especially for players just starting out, but I think the Power Survival variant is a better build at the moment.

In reply to Ze Arios, this build can carry, but I think if you really want to do just that, a more dps heavy / roamer oriented build is better for that purpose. Especially if you can still hit 6.5k Furious Pounces 7k Rapid Fires.

So it does work as a bunker and slow duelist, but I'd say that's not the optimal role for ranger atm.

This ranger build have the most carry potential for solo q at the current time, sic'em soulbeast and power survival are more reliant on the rest of the team where this you can easily go far and force 2 rotations cause if you are good with it you can win most of your 1v1 so they will need to 2v1 you which will create more space for your team.
