Why Melee Awakening?

Ninja has quite a few ranged abilities, i hope we dont just end up with more shuriken abilities. give us long ranged genjutsu abilities :D

I like the ranger's costume.

Or simply a Kusarigama. I don't see genjutsu being a valid awakening weapon since genjutsu consists of illusionary and distraction techniques rather than offenisve techniques

I know awakening doesn't replace the class you just gain more skills for a new weapon but what annoys me is it adds another "MELEE" weapon to a class called "RANGER".

If they wanted to balance ranger in melee they could

1 Make more dagger skills and kicks and make their damage better

2 Add a 2nd range weapon that's stronger at smaller range

Are you trying to suggest that rangers (hunters, wildsmen) in a different era of time would only use bows and would have no knives on them, say they were taken by surprise?

*Stares at the Ranger from DnD*

Yep totally only uses ranged weapons and never dual wielded ever.

Or how about the Rangers of Gondor, Rangers of the North, Aragorn of LoTR fame, 

How about various rangers from Warhammer?

Hate to tell you this, but even in fantasy, rangers using melee weapons including swords and dual wielding along with bows is very very common.

Ranger do NOT  ONLY means "Archer" or "Bowman", in Games, Fantasy or Real Life.

End of the discussion.

Minsc from BG was a ranger. Never made him use a bow. Infact i consider it sinful to make a good melee like Minsc to use a bow! What we need is a male ranger option!

I doubt you'll be using melee primarily in pvp anyway. The fact you have Range is an advantage in itself to begin with.

 

Well, unless they ----- up balance that badly.

All i can say is that plenty of rangers in plenty of lore are pretty much KNOWN to use a combination of bows and dual short swords/ long daggers. Drizzt Do'urden is a ranger who uses them more often than any bow in fact =-=.

Mostly because ranger melee is piss poor, the elemental sword has really good PvE AoE mid-range skills, not to mention the rangers are already crazy better than the other classes, no need to give them some crazy OP awakening.

In PvP would a Ranger survive long enough to use it in melee range? I haven't used it yet. Does anyone know?

In PvP ranger awakening is a maneuver skillset just because of the dash. You use bow dodges to maneuver within the skirmish and the sword awakening to dash around the battlefield. 

Bow dodges are for maintaining positioning. Dashes are for maintaining overall distance and when you really want to escape. 

 

No one has found a pvp use for the awakening dmg skills yet.

gg, half the animations are copy pasted from female blader and kunoichi

Look at the dash move and the sideways auto attack for example, exact copies from the female blader, just with a blue particle effect instead of a red one.

Why the flak would they make new a animation when they have perfectly functional ones already =-= that would just be a waste of time and resources.

I really like the Rangers Awakening. Pays a lot of homage the the idea that Elves are magically inclined - preferring graceful, elegant and dexterous weapons.

Oh like how Kai from Vindictus can transform his bow from short to long?

Its not like the class ends as a melee class. Its still a ranged class but now it can fight back in melee which was her (not only) big weakness. Awakening is meant to compensate for weaknesses but that doesnt mean they will lack weaknesses or that all classes are equal now. I would advice to chill and try the system.

No it doesn't. It's just a PvE skillset. No one in their right mind would give up the ability to stay at range, specially when you're made of glass.

 

People should stop making a big deal out of it. If you're playing Ranger for PvE, good, you get a melee form to spice things around. If you're playing it for PvP, good. You're still the Kitemaster 3000, nothing changed at all.
