This build is in the testing phase.
This build has been designed for the following use:
|This build is significantly affected by the Flux: All In. |
See the build's talk page for discussion and ramifications not noted here.
This is a PvP-oriented Ranger/any build designed for use during the November flux, All In. It provides consistent pressure by spamming Point Blank Shot and Zojun's Shot, it has high protection against meleers, and it has condition cleanse from Antidote Signet. Even if you get Empathy, you can still spam your attacks because you will be doing 60-100 damage every hit against casters, and only take 40 damage in return.
Attributes and Skills
The energy cost of attack skills, rituals, touch skills and all Ranger skills is reduced by 52%.

- Main bow:
- Zealous bow: (15^50, +5 armor)
- Ebon bow: (15^50, +5 armor)
- Defensive set:
- Spear (+5 energy, +5 armor)
- Command shields, +30 hp and +10 armor vs. different damage types. Color code each shield so you can swap to the one you need before battle. For example, if you see an enemy Elementalist use Fire Attunement at the beginning of a fight, put your red command shield on for your Defensive set (default keybind is f4).
Spam Point Blank Shot and Zojun's shot on casters. Only "rupt" (interrupt) important skills, elite skills, or resurrection signets with Distracting Shot. Do not fire off Dshot randomly. Use Lightning Reflexes and Whirling Defense when meleers attack you. Clean conditions off yourself with Antidote Signet. Resurrect players immediately after they die with Resurrection signet.
- Excessive melee hate, like an Ineptitude Mesmer.
- Blocking stances
- Interruption or disablement of Glass Arrows
