Rangers have three builds available to them, which are annotated below. Depending on their build, they should prioritize their ability scores in different ways, as shown below. Also given are recommendations for starting values for each ability score; note that all of these are before racial adjustments.

Archer Edit

  1. Dexterity: This is your main ability score as far as attack accuracy and damage is concerned. Therefore, it should be your top priority in both starting score and ability increases thereafter. Recommended: 16-18.
  2. Wisdom: This ability score affects a lot of the secondary effects you have available, so it's also good to have high and keep high. Recommended: 14-16.
  3. Constitution: More HP and healing surges, which is never bad. If you choose a crossbow, it can also help for feat qualifications. Recommended: 11-14.
  4. Strength: Not really useful to you. If you want, you can put a smidge of points into it. Recommended: 8-13.
  5. Charisma/Intelligence: Pretty useless to you (none of your skills or powers rely on it); dump away. Recommended: 8-10.

Two-Blade Edit

  1. Strength: This is your main ability score as far as attack accuracy and damage is concerned. Therefore, it should be your top priority in both starting score and ability increases thereafter. Recommended: 16-18.
  2. Dexterity: Depending on what build you're going for, this will be about as high a priority as Strength, or it will be lower than Wisdom. However, almost all Rangers require a decent starting score here. Recommended: 14-16.
  3. Wisdom: Depending on what build you're going for, this will be just under Strength in priority, or play second fiddle to Dexterity. Either way, you need at least a smidge of it. Recommended: 12-14.
  4. Constitution: You probably can't afford a big score here, but try to start as high as you can. Recommended: 12-14.
  5. Charisma/Intelligence: Pretty useless to you (none of your skills or powers rely on it); dump away. Recommended: 8-10.

Beastmaster Edit

  1. Dexterity: This will either be your main ability score, or be a third to Wisdom. Either way, you need a decent number in it to start. Recommended: 14-18.
  1. Strength: This can go from your #1 priority to being dumped under Wisdom and Constitution, depending on your build. Recommended: 11-16.
  2. Wisdom: Regardless of what attack ability score you choose, this is your secondary priority. Recommended: 12-16.
  3. Constitution: You probably can't afford a big score here, but try to start as high as you can. Recommended: 12-14.
  4. Charisma/Intelligence: Pretty useless to you (none of your skills or powers rely on it); dump away. Recommended: 8-10.
