Looking for Ranger PVE Builds

Hi,

I am new to GW2 and are going to hit 80 in the near future. I couldn't find decent ranger builds, because a lot of stuff is relatively vague or seems out of date.

Would be glad, if someone could link me two builds:

1.) Heal Ranger
2.) PVE dungeon/roaming

Thanks in advance!

  • Hey bud, try metabattle.com I prefer the power soulbeast build, although the condi soulbeast is very fun as well. cheers.

  • Thanks for your recommendation. I find very rare information on metabattle. Guess, that's because I am new to GW2 and need more information than mature players.

    I don't know which build to go for with my first level 80 character. Is it recommendable to go for a DPS build (if so: which one?) or should I go for the druid?

    It's hard to earn hero points with the first char, so I guess I have to make my decision wisely, don't I?

    While leveling don't worry about build, it's better to just try and learn all the skills. If you want a dead easy build just use Longbow + Sword/Warhorn with a bear pet. I still would suggest swapping between weapons and pets often to figure out how they all work and which ones you like best.

    Hero points are really no that hard to get, just take a little while. You'll end up with much more than you need by end game if you grab them all as you clear zones.

    No longer playing the game due to PvP being abandon.

  • Thanks! I just hit level 80. Any recommendations what to go for with my first build? (Souldbeast/Druid?)

    Unless you really want to play a support build, i'd go for soulbeast (dmg) first, because it can be useful always and everywhere, while a healing build might struggle when solo (or at least requires different gear sets/builds ) and is often not needed even for group content. It is also easier to get optimal gear (berserker) for a power dps build.
