  • See: Guide:GvG Ranger for tips on how to play Ranger in PvP.
  • Use Dash to kite away from meleers.
  • If you get knocked down, use one of your interrupts on the attacking meleer while you are in the process of standing up. If the meleer is somewhat inexperienced, you might be able to interrupt a second knockdown. Then use Dash to get away.
  • Run close to opponents you want to interrupt. Unlike a Mesmer, your arrows take a certain amount of time to fly through the air and hit your opponent. This amount of time is lengthened the farther you are away from your opponent. So stick to them like glue.


  • Blind
  • Empathy
