What recently really bugs me (and I think all Rangers, and some Necros and Mesmers maybe) is what I have come to refer to as "Class Racism".
That is the all too familiar "need Warrior or Monk for mission".
I ascended an Ele and a Warrior primary. No problems. But now, as an experienced player, I try to get a lvl 14 r/m towards ascention. Does anyone group with me? No.
Therefore, I want to tell two tales.
Last night I was playing my E/R in the desert, looking for a town. I had invited a ranger, and taken the b****ing of the other folks in the pickup team for this. End of story? We all died, and the ranger ran like some olympic god, healing himself, arround and through enemies towards the city gates.
Also, did Thirsty River last night with said E/R. Packed a primary Ranger again. Again took comments from some in the team ("bah, a Ranger? Kick him!").
We made Thirsty River with no problems. I personally made it in the first attempt with this char. I made Elona Reach in two tries, with a Ranger in the group, too (cause I had the right strategy and everyone followed - without the right strategy a month ago, I tried Elona about 25 times, with or without Rangers or Necros or Mesmers in the team).
Its so much more about tactics than classes. So, all moaning about unbalanced skills aside, please be don't be the unbalancing factor of the game. Invite occasionally a Ranger, a Necro, or a Mesmer, you may be lucky and find someone who knows how to play them and is a great asset.
