Prior to nerf, they were practically unusable in blob fights but was extremely strong in 1v1. I like the fact that the Elite Spirit now provides stability which can be helpful when fighting a lord inside a keep to avoid knockback, fear and other cc's but during blob fights it is close to being useless so I just switch it to Entangle. I still use the other small spirit trees to proc their condi's with my shortbow.
I just don't like it that there is no change with the attitude of a lot of commanders toward Rangers. One time, I was on my Firebrand and when I switched to my Ranger, the commander called me out and demanded me to switch back to FB, when we are lacking any kiting potential. They were really into moving like a school of fish and the enemies were attacking us from all directions. And I don't think I will be reflecting any of my damage back to them because I was not using a Longbow.
Can you please move it to Rangers? Thank you.
