Pets

  • Juvenile Fanged Iboga Juvenile Fanged Iboga is also a very strong condition pet which applies confusion and both hard and soft cc. Some other 'Deadly' pets can work well but are entirely up to personal preference and my not be better.

Usage

General Being reworked, for now-

  • Use traps frequently for stealth, superspeed and damage/cc.
  • In death match do damage while frequently moving around, ccing opponents and even revive teammates when down.
  • In conquest generally you want to look for 1v1s to win, but necros are also very good targets and team fights are possible to contribute to.
  • You can rotate away from side nodes if you want to assist else-where, feel free to leave some traps on the way to slow down opponents while speeding yourself up significantly.

Counters

  • Very high damage
  • Very high condition cleanse
  • Heavy CC.

On paper this is probably the highest performing ranger build overall by alot, most notably due to sage's and trappers, and as such it maybe a must for many ranger players. In death match it can function as a high dps build that with nature magic also brings great sustain/rez or with beast mastery alot of cc/damage and in that regard can function as a 'meta' dps unlike any other ranger builds, though it functions alittle better with a premade duo than solo q. In conquest it can be used as a hyper efficient duelist and also unlike every single other ranger build it can also team fight and/or commonly counter necros.

It brings it all in a safe manner- absolute must for average ranger especially for deathmatch.
