Ranger Class Divinity: Original Sin II Guide

Ranger is a character whose main task is to use ranged means to eliminate every enemy who is able to endanger your party. Thanks to special arrows, he can efficiently slow down, blind, or apply various statuses to your enemies.

He should always keep to the second line, only except the situations where he needs to break the line to assume a good position. Using the ability to teleport party members, you can teleport him to high objects, which will facilitate combat for him.

You can find the base parameters for this class below.

Attribute

Value

Notes

Finesse

+2

No surprises here - most of the ranged weaponry is scaled according to this attribute.

Wits

+1

High initiative will help find a sure ground before your enemy does the same. If you emerge on top (literally), you'll deal higher damage, while your arrows will have longer range.

Abilities and Talent

The Ranger's abilities:

Name

Value

Notes

Huntsman

1

The ability to be given as much attention as possible. Increasing the bonus to injury, the effectiveness of the attack and leveling the penalty for an inconvenient position will surely be useful in difficult moments of skirmishes, and if you manage to get in a better position then the fight will go smoothly.

Pyrokinetic

1

Additional point allows this character to use spells from this school of magic. Haste is worth mentioning because it increases amount of generated AP by 1 per turn. Another good ability is Peace of Mind which allows a character to cure negative effects and get powerful bonuses to attributes.

Lucky Charm

1

With this ability you have a chance to find extra items of particular value when you search through various containers. In this aspect Special arrows are the most important ones, which end very quickly and are relatively expensive.

Talent

Arrow Recovery - A chance for retrieving a special arrow after firing it.

Ranger - Races

Race

Predispositions

Notes

Elf

High

Elves are the best race to create a Ranger. The natural bonus to finesse will increase the base ranged damage, and every attack will be much more efficient.

Human

Average

Basing on the initiative bonus, a human can be quite a good Ranger, mainly thanks to the ability to get to a better position. However in the early phase of the game, he won't deal as much damage as an elf.

Dwarf

None

A complete lack of predispositions, but this doesn't mean that you cannot roll a dwarf Ranger.

Lizard

None

Similarly to dwarves, lizards don't have any special talents that would increase their effectiveness. You should probably find a better use for them.

Which abilities are worth choosing?

A Ranger has access to two schools (Huntsman and Pyrokinetic) which means that they can choose from 8 starting abilities. The selection was done rather well, however, there is room for small changes. These changes are presented in the table below.
