I would like to try a range combat class

Here are some recommendations for range combat-focused classes in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.

 

Beginner-friendly #1: Ranger – Demonslayer – The campaign of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous pits you against the demonic denizens of hell. Naturally, you’ll want to pick a class that has boosts against these types of enemies.

It’s worth adding that demons in the game have their own variants and elemental resistances, so you want to make sure that your party has the tools to bring them down.

Beginner-friendly #2: Monk – Zen Archer – Yes, this is the starting class used by your companion Lann. However, in a straight-up evaluation of progression, it’s still got decent perks, along with feats that help with survivability (similar to other Monk options). Perhaps the only downside here is that you are playing the same way as another ranged companion. Either you’d multiclass with your main character later, or you’ll have Lann switch instead. Once you recruit Arueshalae later, your backline combatants become even more formidable.

Ideal pick: Kineticist – Default or Psychokineticist – The reason why Kineticists have such a high difficulty curve compared to other classes is that they use the Burn mechanic. Burn basically uses your WIS (Psychokineticist) or CON (default and all other archetypes) to modify or empower your Wild Talents. The problem? You’ll take HP or Will damage when you do this. This is a balancing act most of the time since this damage can only be healed when you rest.

On the upside, you can think of Kineticists as “spellcasters who aren’t spellcasters.” Compared to actual caster classes who have a limit to their daily usage of spells, Kineticists have near-unlimited use for their blasts.

All right, let’s go to the next part of our Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous best classes guide to see the optimal support and caster options.
