    Hammer

    I'd love to get a hammer and an elite specialization that could be called "Shatterer" or "Crusher". Basically you smash the earth with your hammer and create giant earthquakes and erupt volcanos. You could even have transformations as your class mechanic and become an improved version of your pet for a short duration and defeat your enemy as a giant bear for example :)

    THUMPER!! kitten it. Gain access to Physical skills and have a focus on aoe/control/power damage.

    Only have 1 pet it becomes a dire/hearty pet pet swap now heals/cleanses it.

    Am already answer about idea then i quote myself from another topic

    "My vote is Pistal / Dual Pistal.

    After Elona we will cross a sea to Cantha place Of Youkai.
    If we see fit for our lore I think we should play as Lone wanderer/Youkai or Demon Hunter who have pet as sidekick who like travel place to place.
    Jump to trouble and save a poor soul kill badguy/demon/yokai or whatever with a Glory pistol.

    use bullet as effect skill draw, reload, salvo."

    I'd love it if every new elite specialization got either a twohand weapon or an offhand and a mainhand one together. More build variety and skills is always good.

    I hate close range. If I liked it I would roll some other class...

    Rytlock Brimstone: So we find the archon, take him out, then use Kas's "imposter" trick to take his place, right?
    Lady Kasmeer Meade: It's not a trick. Mesmers don't do "tricks"—we utilize illusion.
    Rytlock Brimstone: Yeah, yeah. You guys are worse than elementalists.

    Needs Rifle, elite specialization "Hunter", and it should remove pet and replace it with special Rifle skills.

    I would love to have a pet focus hunter spec. Don't most hunters use dogs or birds when hunting? I think this would fit the ranger more, also because Soulbeast already "gets rid of" the pet in a way.

    I'd rather see F skills related to hunting tactics or something. I mean they could keep the pet with the skills, just change the skills a bit for the hunter.

    Rifle

    Thumper hammer idea sounds cool, big aoes etc. But I think Ranger needs rifle first. Hunter is a cool concept. Could go either way with the F skills. I like the idea of removing the pet and making them special skills like "sniper shot" or something. But you could also have them be Pet focused without the pet. For example, you could have a skill that sends a hunting dog or something after your target, this could be a targeted dumbfire pet that has a duration. So you still "have a pet" but its not following you around etc. Similar to how the horn skill summons a ton of birds to peck the eyes of your target.

    Rangers have so many cool off-hand weapon options that it's a shame they're so limited in main-hand weapons.

    Yeah Ranger has longbow, shortbow, axe and staff that are ranged wepons. I would like to get another melee weapon but a two handed one.

    Pistol (mainhand/offhand or both)

    Since I made HOPE already, I really wish they release P/P for ranger. (5 skills, much like how warrior gets both daggers)

    So far ranger has very few main-hand option, and only ONE range main-hand option, which is kind of hyber/ condition oriented too.
    So it'd be very nice if we get P/P that uses power for ranger.
    To differentiate from thief's P/P, maybe makes it focus more on the aoe aspect, 1200 range.

    PS: I have no idea why people want Rifle since it'd pretty much be exactly the same as LB when you think about how Rifle works.
    P/P at least would be vastly different from axe. P/P also gains another off-hand for ranger , increasing versatility.

    Tbf. ranger's highest dps still comes from pretty much melee range condition..
    Also we have as much melee as range.
    Dagger main/offhand, torch, sword, GS are all melee range.
    Axe is range, but to utilize #2 skill, people pretty much fight point blank too..

    What ranger lacks right now is actually an aoe oriented range weapon that focus on area damage and area denial, which ranger so far has none.
    (LB can barely count as one since only #5 skill hits aoe range. The damage is also pretty bad)

    Would love the ranger to take on the aspect of a stealthy hunter, kind of like the Predator or even Rengar from LoL. Doesn't have to be like a thief, want it to bemore like a patient hunter, ya know? Totally clueless on what weapon to choose tho, love all the ideas :P

    Rangers have so many cool off-hand weapon options that it's a shame they're so limited in main-hand weapons.

    Yeah but ranger has so many ranged options i rather want a weapon that hits an area in front of you in melee range instead of a onehanded LB/SB replacement.
    Idk what rifle and pistol want to cover ranger hasnt got yet.

    Yeah I hear you; I want more weapons that I can use from slightly-more-than-melee range. Something that pairs well with torch, warhorn and off-hand axe.
    IMO pistol would be the coolest, as you could give it both main and off-hand capability, five new skills that let you mix and match a lot. That's what I want, but I'd probably bet on Rifle, with the lore being some kind of big-game hunter.

    Rifle

    A Harpoon-Rifle with CC and conditions to take down the big game.

    I wouldn't mind limiting its range to 600 if it packs a big wallop.

    i will say for me a good wepon would be like clows/ hand to hand wepons for the range it would fit them soo well. you get claws you attack more like your pet does and you have a faster attack speed then sword it would be good.

    This just sounds like soulbeast dagger to me.

    not quit. if you ever played ever quest they had a class that was a combo of monk and ranger that used claws and hand to hand wepons but did not feel like a monk or ranger it was a cool class and it would fit for the ranger in this game becouse the ranger is like a buffer for pve content and it would work.

    Focus

    I voted for focus but I think there are some interesting options. It would be cool to see something new and unique, that's why I think a magical weapon that doesn't seem very ranger-like like focus or scepter would be good and interesting options for a new spec. If it wasn't that, pistol would be cool... But I think its concept would end up being more traditional and boring. Same with shield, as long it's not just a block and some cc it would be cool too.

    I'd like to see a Ranger spec that allows you to transform into the 4 main spirit animals of the norn, like some kind of spirit talker. Only so they change your utility skills though, so you can transform to raven and gain raven based utilities, or bear and have like a defensive set of utilities, wolf for supporting utilities and the panther like one for stealth high individual damage utilities / self buffing utilities

    Pistol (mainhand/offhand or both)

    I feel like this is what soulbeast should have been: make it a more visceral change (possibly a model change), and change your 1/2/3 skills. That would have been amazing. I like the variety we get with SB, but the concept seems milquetoast.

  • Sword (offhand)

    I don't care, as long as it makes Ranger viable in WVW zerg.

    Rifle

    I know hammer would be nice but I truly do think ranger needs some more love for ranged dps outside of the standard longbow, so rifle gets my vote.
