  • Survivor insignas
  • 3 Bows: Vampiric Hornbow of Fortitude(spike bow), Sundering Flatbow of Fortitude(non-spike bow and distance bow with spirit) and Ebon Hornbow of Fortitude (for spike against warriors)
  • Fill up with vitae runes


  • Maintain Glass Arrows
  • Mainly spike with Forked Arrows + Savage Shot.
  • Use Dual Shot as 2nd spike if you're hexed, or if called to spike faster.
  • In relic runs, the number 2 & 3 rangers run with "Make Haste!" on themselves, cast by the Paragon.
  • The runners chain Favorable Winds so it won't go down.
  • Hex Breaker is to give Forked Arrow more chance to hit twice, as well as anti-snare for relic running.
  • The caller uses Pin Down as a distance snare so the Rit (and itself) can snare the target more easily( since he needs to be close).
  • The caller also uses Ward Against Foes (with 40/40) to snare opposing runners/give allies time to kite.
  • Rigor Mortis targets who have stances such as rangers.
  • Use Distracting Shot to interrupt important stuff.
  • Use Lightning Reflexes as anti-spike.
