Rangers are primarily non-evil, specialized warriors, skilled in moving through the landscape and living in the wilderness. Although some may be called to the path of evil, they are few and far between, as they pay a high price for their betrayal of their nature. Rangers are only allowed to use non-metal armor, but if they have a free hand, they may wield two weapons at one time.
As stated below STR and DEX are the primary and secondary stat for Rangers. During the character generation process, an additional bonus is given to the STR and DEX stats. Additionally, the race of your character also helps or hinders your STR and DEX stats. Each race ranks differently for STR and DEX. Listed below in descending order are the recommended races for a Ranger. By selecting a race higher on the list you have a better chance of getting more favorable STR and DEX stats during the roll process. However, bear in mind that your choice may help or hinder a secondary or tertiary class.

Rangers share some skills with warriors, though not enhanced damage, and some with thieves, like sneak and hide. They also have some fun abilities of their own, like the butcher skill. This allows the ranger to make his own food from the corpses of dead critters. These steaks can also serve as trophies and are often sought after during quests. As fun as the steaks are, however, it is the ability to wield two weapons that is the real claim to fame for rangers. Rather than use metal armor, rangers use their high dexterity to avoid being hit in combat.
The 'high price' paid by evil rangers refers to some advantages good rangers get when trying to PK their evil brethren. All rangers also get a bonus when attacking Ogre player characters.
The primary stat for rangers is dexterity.
The secondary stat for rangers is strength.
- Second Attack
- Third Attack
