The Ranger can be loosely described as your party leader in The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos. This is primarily due to having a high courage stat (initiative) and several team-wide buffs. Here’s our Ranger skills guide to help you out.
The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: Ranger skills guide
Here are some of the active and passive skills I selected for the Ranger during The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk‘s campaign. Choose wisely due to the limited number of skill points and the level 10 cap.
|I||First Aid||+35 HP healed; tier II upgrade to remove the knocked down and stunned status effects||This is a very useful skill to have since it allows the Ranger to have additional healing capabilities.|
|I||Tactic: Defensive Maneuver||+10 parry and dodge (team-wide);
Tier II upgrade for +20 magical/physical resistance
|This will become your go-to buff, and likely the first skill you pop when the Ranger has his turn. The defensive bonuses are amazing.|
|II||Loubet’s Anticipation||+1 movement; tier III and IV upgrades to increase precision||This is only an optional skill if you aren’t enticed by others. This is primarily a replacement for Defensive Maneuver if you want to play more aggressively.|
|III||Hurtful Blow||Melee and taunt the enemy to make it face the Ranger||This is also another optional skill, though it can be useful. I use it in conjunction with the Thief’s Sneaky Strike (backstab).|
|III||Shield Bash||Does low damage but stuns the enemy||Any skill that improves crowd control (CC) is always good in my book.|
Note: I originally kept using Tactic: Suppressing Fire. However, as mentioned in our official review, I encountered bugs related to having multiple characters on overwatch which meant the skill (and overwatch boons) weren’t that helpful.
|I||The Leader Goes Down Last||Allows the Ranger to wear heavy leather armor||A useful passive so you can equip better gear.|
|I||Spontaneous Blood Surge||+4 CRG when adjacent to the Elf||Lets the Ranger and Elf stand next to each other and take their turns a lot earlier than everyone else.|
|II||Shield Expert||Allows the Ranger to equip a shield; increases parry||Increases your defensive capabilities.|
|II||Ranger of Good||Regular melee attacks stun an enemy if they’re at full health||Walk up to an enemy, then slash and stun them.|
|IV||The Strength of a Leader||+2/4 STR||It’s great to boost your physical damage.|
