Just played a few matches tonight, and talked with a couple of rangers I met to get a clue about stats.
So far, seems you need something approaching 50k in arpen, crit, and defence, at least as a rule of thumb/jumping off point. Decent, ie. upwards of 300k HP wouldn't go amiss. Slap on the healz mount bonuses. Don't worry about gear specifics just use whatever has a bunch of hitpoints and the right stats to get your 50ks. Prepare to die a lot.
Atm. My pvp loadout is trapper style, warden. Hindering/marauders/constricting. I haven't trashed my pve build so some of my enchants are junk, and my armor enchant is a fireburst lol. Early days, killed a few, got utterly murdered quite often. Will try a ranger loadout, but meh, I'd be surprised if it's a winner.
HR pros, great crit severity/damage potential. Mobility. Limited cc with crushing roots.
HR cons, squishy as usual, terrible dodge (tbh no dodge). Liable to get cc'd to death, but that seems to be everyone atm.
Anyway, better than last mod.
No idea what my toon is now.
