    Ranged attacks by definition compromises damage to become... ranged.

    You'd really have to define the situation though. "Best" ranged is relative. Hardcore raiding, random PvE, WvW, sPvP, solo targets, AoE, etc.

    Dont look a gift Asura in the mouth.
    No seriously, dont. Shark teeth.

    Probably Elementalist?

    One of the highest parsing specs in PvE according to Snow Crows is Power Tempest using Scepter + Warhorn.
    For WvW, the Meta is Power Weaver with Staff or Healing Tempest with Staff.

    It's only sPvP where their optimal builds start to get more melee with Dagger/Focus (That said, some of Ele's Dagger attacks have some range on them)

    Necro also has some decent ranged with condition builds (Scourge in PvE and WvW and Core in sPvP) due to using Scepter/Warhorn + Staff or Scepter/Torch + Axe/Focus or Scepter/Torch + Scepter/Torch (For sPvP, WvW and PvE respectively though WvW can also utilize Staff instead of Axe/Focus)

    Deadeye is ok.

    If I play a stupid build, I deserve to die.
    If I beat people on a stupid build, I deserve to get away with it.
