Running this at the moment and enjoying it, it's not too bad at open world boon support too.
I had to create an account just to say how amazing I've found this build to be. The survivability is insane. And I honestly dont see that big a drop in damage from other builds. Absolutely loving it. It has rekindled my love for Ranger.
Sure it can stay alive a long time, but damage is extremely poor compared to other Ranger builds, proving that traits are just as important as gear for doing damage.
Just started using this build. It's ridiculous, i can pretty much solo everything.
Have been playing with this for a while now both in PvE and WvW, works great! Phenomenal might ramp, perpetual swiftness, regen and fury, among others, all attesting to incredible survivability and good damage output. Really enjoyable to play. Some occasions even feels too good to be true. The rotation in it's simplicity still continues to make the build interesting and fun.
This build feels broken when compared to the Longbow Beastmastery build. Near perma protection, 25 stacks of might, retaliation, regen, a ton of quickness and stability up time. You're practically unstoppable. I used Water Rune for that extra sustain and its very worth it with healing something like 600 hp per second permanently. 10% less boon time with scholars was an easy trade.. For the most part, you don't "need" 10 more percent boon time. Love the build!
