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.
Tier Skill Effect Additional Notes 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.
Tier Skill Effect Additional Notes 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.
