Ive several times been trying to make a ranger as i havent played the class to any serious extent before. But the damage output seems quite low, and the skills horribly expensive energy wise.
When does it begin to get easier? Once you have some levels under the belts and can pump expertise I asume. But the beginning seems quite hard to get through. I would play on Cantha as the leveling is much faster there than Tyria, but it still seems quite difficult for rangers, compared to a warrior whom just mows things down when he have adrenaline.
