@The-Question said in Best subclasses for a Ranger?:
Ranger/Fighter is for min/max damage. It's the one sub class that isn't for experienced players. You purposely take damage to get below 25% health then play the entire time without healing to keep the bonuses. Also the stances provide a huge damage boost as well even without the use of the health % damage boosts. You get 450 bonus RNG without the stance or % boosts.
that class combo does less damage than Ra/Et and you purposely put yourself at 1 shot all the time for something that doesn't even beat the 2 other class combos who have the safety net from their sub skills. Ra/Fi is not as good as you think it is and definitely not one people should be doing reguardless of skill, I mean good luck not dying setting up End Attract and Satellite Cannon and no, an MPA format for having a class work is not a very good idea to try and pass as "ya this class combo works, it does great!" either.
you either do:
Ra/Et > Ra/Hu > the rest
If you want to stick to some niche playstyle because its "your thing", then go for it but expect to be hitting the floor pretty often as a Ra/Fi at Deadlines level of health. This isn't a very sufficient way of playing the class either
