Picking vs ranger and warrior is picking vs a pretty much OP class and the WORST class in the game (ranger being OP)

How do I make my ranger OP lieto? I really suck at pvp, when I flag up I usually follow that with a regular blasting gust for kd then WOTW> shotgun, but that is never enough to kill anyone

Honestly as Exeng said focus on your gear, your AP is determinate of how much damage you do. From there carefully study your moves for knock downs/backs and skills to keep distance with your enemy, then go to arenas and either wait for others or practice with friends as you can resurrect on spot and suffer no penalty for killing or dying there.

Ranger is not as easy as it appears at the beginning. It seems to involve a lot of animation canceling. If that's your thing it can be fun. Personally I don't really like that mechanic and unfortunately now realizer rather late that I like other classes better although they might be weaker.

The ranger you see in the beginning isn't the final ranger at all. To be honnest, if you can't animation cancel, just forget about the Ranger. I hesitate to switch class cause a full animation cancel gameplay is really weird in my opinion...

Totally wrong. Warrior is just a high skill cap class. And it becomes insanely strong when he'll get his awakening weapon. Yes it's not as OP as ranger but it's not bad at all.

Ranger on the other hand is a noob friendly class. It doesnt require any skill at all to do huge amount of damage. (but just for this ...)

 However, if you don't know how to manage your stamina, to preshot your movement skill and how to kite, no chance you'll stay alive more than 2 seconds in pvp. (especially in team fights) Ranger is also based on key mechanics. If you are bad/lazy at doing your combos, then this class is not made for you. Well it just requires a lot of pratice, it's not a waste of time to practice a full day on scarecrows in Hidel, trust me.

I really enjoy my ranger A LOT. It suits my play style perfectly but it requires lots of evasion and tonnes of shots (otherwise it chews through health pots if positioned poorly)
Lots of evasion and knock backs are required but once you get a nice distance you can fire plenty of shots.
I'm still fairly new though so this is just my IMO :)

I hear warrior is very casual/newbie friendly compared to ranger though I haven't played myself.

ranger is 10 times more noob friendly than a warrior. You are only required to learn how to Qcancle properly and gg. (that's why I picked it over warr)

i just picked up a baby warr last night and I do agree now (unless you're very familiar with melee classes) though I'm only lvl 15 so still reserve full judgement.

Ranger just works well when you keep distance and that's not hard to do with her abilities.

 Im rly causal and noob player .....warrior and ranger

If you wanna be good at warrior or ranger you have to get good at blocking (for warrior) and canceling animations (for both). Animation cancels are important, so you'll have to invest some time and since you are causal im not sure you have time for it. Try sorc - king of 1v1 pvp, even if you're not that good at class yet. The "entry point" is pretty low, and at high gear enchants 1v1 pvp generally looks like "get a knockdown - get a kill". Class is wrongly considered hard to play, when in fact it's not.

I think a lot of people underestimate the amount of skill that Ranger takes simply because it doesn't rely on the old "become god-like at maintaining skill rotations" mentality. Sure, you can just Q-cancel a warrior because of no skill rotations, but he's just going to block it. It's much more difficult to bait a spear, dodge to the side, attempt a knockdown, react to it failing, dodge his rush to the right, leap left over him as he turns around his shield to block, then Q into UCW. 

Piano looks easy enough to play. You hit a key and you hear a sound. But is it that easy to play a sonata?

Actually, I ended up with sorcerer. It is a lot of fun, so I enjoy just killing mobs a lot of more, than with ragner or warrior. I die a lot, but I dont care too much. Totally different playstyle than with ranger and warr.

Have a nice friday guys. :)
