If you havnt noticed, you choose 3 sub classes. So saying you are going to be a ranger is only 1/3 of the decision. Trust me, regardless of what you think you are going to play, as soon as you start seeing how the different classes' abilities play out with each other, its near impossible to stay with just one build. I chose Bard as my first soul, blade dancer and riftstalker. This basically means that I have stealth, i play songs for support and I have an **** of magic ranged attacks that give me combo points so that the time the enemy makes it to me, if they indeed do, I already have 5 combo points and they are at 60-70%. I must say, the possibilities in this game are endless as far as class customization goes.
