    Asura ranger. Obviously logical.

    Pros:

    • superior scientific profession, as your "golem" (the pet) does not require programming, batteries, is not hackable and easy to maintain/replace. Tons of funds and time saved for real research!
    • pet is bigger then you! Great at drawing attention away from smaller you! Also can be used as emergency mount (reseach in progress!)
    • pet is bigger then you! If you're stranded and no food - BIG mobile food supply right there!
    • excellent subterfuge and saboutage - send in your pet to wreck enemy equipment/raid their laboratory. Just a wild animal attack, none will be the wiser..
    • SNAP! The favourite sound when some pests are trying to bug you in your laboratory. Noooo, I didn't lay that snare there...asura's don't use snare traps (innocent eyes)
    • technobabble the cretins for 3s stun. Shoot the inquest kitten with your bow. Didn't invent tech for enemy arrows? Too bad!
    • Sharks with lasers. You know you want them, and as ranger you already have a shark!

    Cons:

    • Your lab may smell...a "little"
    • drooling maw of your "pet" is the last thing you want to see and smell when being ressurected
    • Necros can detonate their pets and resummon soon after....need to work on "pet enhancements"
    • Your clearly superior resourcefulness and adaptation skills are often not recognized by golem-obsessed imbecilic peers.
  • Okay. I was honestly thinking an asura ranger would be ILLOGICAL so... nevermind.

    Pros to prove my point:
    . No manure obviously
    . Hard to tame
    . They're bigger than you!
    . They might eat you (Pet looks at you with hungry eyes)
    . Hard to take care of
    . Cant use it as a mount (They're not horses for goodness sake!)
    . Can get caught by the inquest and be used as a test subject
    Cons to prove his point:
    . Un-hackable
    . Emergency rations
    . Saves time (not with training)
    . Excellent cover-up!
    . Can make your pets destroy things! Zojja "Its not my lab so i dont care if it gets blown up."
    . If it gets lost, you just have to find another!
    I finished with this part so put some thought into what you type
