Actually this isn't a bad idea. BDO couldn't imagine how to make male ranger different from current female one? Then make male one using a crossbow (two don't seem to be practical tho). Make him a bit less mobile, but with heavier hit and a more defensive abilities.

Practical? In a game where we fight and jump around in high heels?

Pearl Abyss,

 

The Male Elf(Presumed Ranger) was featured in one of your trailers more than 3 years ago. The files for the model appear to already be in game. Many fans of BDO expected to see this class released with the Kamasylvia expansion, but that appears to be unlikely with the release of the Dark Knight class. Can we expect to see the Male Ranger class in 2017, or any time afterwards?

The disparity between genders and classes is profound. There are 5 male classes to choose from, and 4 out of 5 are traditionally melee. A male ranged class(That's not 90 years old, or a reskin) is long overdue.

 

Dude! ... what game is this because i looks way more interesting than the one I'm playing lol.  all of those world bosses that actually look challenging. sieges that look real ad interesting.... a warrior wielding a halbred?   like wtf mate?  why don't we have THIS game?!!!

 

But.... that pic you reference is of a ranger... you can see the quiver on her back... and her firing arrows in the vid.... but yeah the armor DOES look cool

Atm the 'lore' is just that they don't exist/aren't mentioned.

Pretty sure there was a statement around the time where pa released musa/maehwa that they weren't going back and releasing opposite genders of classes that have already been released.

They mention Archers in the origins of DK on official website.

I'd love to see/  play a male elf ranger. I'd immediately buy pearl items for him too.

And what's more let's have some more western style characters instead of all the eastern ones (although I do agree with the monk class).

When it started off it seemed mainly western but now it seems to be going eastern in a big way. I'd play male or female characters and I'd rather have a choice. There's no reason they can't make the male elf ranger different. He could have spear and buckler, punch with arrows (ala Legolas), use a much bigger bow for more powerful hits but be less dextrous than the female ranger etc, etc - it's no excuse.

In the words of JLP - make it so! they already have half the work done.

No, female elves hate men that's why the elf race will extinguish soon...

Did you just assume that elfs gender? What if it's female, or both?

Why should he be a male Ranger? He could be the melee dual wield class I am waiting for with 2 swords and the bow/arrows as accessories or as secondary weapon... :)

I am thinking something like this...

Dual_Wield_03.thumb.jpg.84915276e69cd442

Or even this...

Dual_Wield_01.thumb.jpg.c32926a2baa8b7a0

But I believe we will get something like this

"It is hard to give a concrete answer to this matter because we are always trying our best to create a truly fun and innovative character, rather than copying an existing one, with a sex change. Creating the same class, but a different gender, takes almost the same amount of resources as creating a completely new class. This has changed the overall direction of class development towards creating new classes, which will provide an entirely new experience for players. Currently, there is no plan to create a male version of Ranger, Sorcerer and Tamer. We might however provide a counterpart that offers a similar look and feel such as Valkyrie vs. Warrior with slight adjustments to fit its nature."

Copies of existing ones already exist, they could have avoided it from the beginning then.

I personally play only if its aesthetically pleasing. I also like to emulate myself in the world i am playing. Definitely more comfortable playing as a male. I just cannot relate to a female character.
Hope that clears it up a little. ^^

I really liked the design of this male ranger when I first saw the trailer. I'm so sad, that they didn't add him.. Why is this so difficult? :(

As much I would love this - I'm sure they said that they would never do it because they don't know how to make it different from ranger.

Something along these lines. 

Main weapon

  1. Male rangers (Marksman maybe?) have a Crossbow. This wouldn't be a run-and-gun weapon but rather a weapon you need/should choose your positioning carefully.
  2. Attacks are really strong and pierce multiple targets, but lose power the more people the bolt travels through. Skills also pierce through Super Armour so any effect can't be blocked by it. It's an insanely powerful bolt after all and not a sword you can parry or something.
  3. Different bolt skills that have an additional use of being helpful in pvp such as explosive bolts that leaves an AoE field on the ground for each target it passes through. Or a poison arrow that puts a DoT/debuff on targets. 
  4. Would be on the slow end with low to average mobility for the main weapon.

Awakening weapon

  1. Awakening would be a Diablo 3 style demon hunter that has dual hand crossbows. This is the run-and-gun weapon
  2. Skills would be on the low/medium damage scale but each have low cooldowns so it becomes sustain damage rather than high burst the Crossbow provides. 
  3. Lots of mobility, regen (HP and Mana) and evasion built into the attacks but the trade off is again, lowish damage so while you can dodge, dip, dive, duck and dodge like a mother-----er, you won't be blowing them up Wizard/Witch style. Battles would be a fight of attrition.
  4. Lots, if not all the skills would have some type of status effect on them. Whether it be movement speed reductions, attack/cast speed reductions or flinching, I would consider this weapon less about being the 1 weapon you only ever have to use like some classes but more about crippling the enemy, whittling them down and debuffing them. Expose weaknesses so you can exploit it with very powerful Crossbow shots.
