Mar 2 update[edit source]

So, now, PS + Choking Gas + Flurry = most annoying ranger build ever? Off to the RA to test it out. — Stabber 18:55, 3 March 2006 (CST)

Wow, RA is overflowing with PS+CG rangers already. — Stabber 19:11, 3 March 2006 (CST)
So, did it work, or was it just a novel idea? :) --Bishop 20:04, 3 March 2006 (CST)
It works wonderfully. Choking Gas is now indefinitely maintainable, instead of being merely nearly indefinitely maintainable. There is still the 2 second recasting window for CG, not to mention the usual anti-ranger stuff (Ineptitude, SS, etc.). — Stabber 02:18, 4 March 2006 (CST)
Also, assuming a hsortbow + flurry, attacks come about once every 1.33 sec or so. It's easy to slip 1 sec casts through... --Theonemephisto 08:57, 30 July 2006 (CDT)
Thats why ever PS/CG build has savage and distracting — Skuld 08:59, 30 July 2006 (CDT)

Flurry can't work with Practiced STANCE because it is a stance itself. --SigmA 14:56, 19 February 2007 (CST)

Think about it a little more. You only need practiced stance up when you activate choking gas. --Fyren 17:46, 19 February 2007 (CST)

Glyphs?[edit source]

There had been a discussion in the Talk:Barrage thread about how Barrage removes preparations AND GLYPHS. People were wondering whether glyphs were treated like preparations by Practiced Stance. Has anyone experimented with this? --Charlotte Dod 12:25, 23 February 2007 (EST)

They're not. --Fyren 13:05, 23 February 2007 (CST)

Glyphs are preparations for spells, but are not preparations in the rangers' sense. This is why Barrage removes them, yet not affected by Practiced Stance (although I haven't actually tested to see if this "preparation" mechanic carries through to this skill with glyphs).

No, its a bug. Barrage should not remove glyphs. — Skuld 18:21, 13 May 2007 (CDT)

I Disagree[edit source]

I disagree with you guys. I think the best way to use this build is to use Practiced + Choking Gas and some high damage skills (unlike flurry). Then when they get to 50% just Needling Shot the shit out of them. What are they going to do? Being hit every second, it's almost impossible to cast anything.

Nowadays, you just take Flail and have both IAS and damage. 07:44, 30 November 2008 (UTC)
Good luck at using Flail as Ranger, 1 second duration is really awesome. -
That comment is over half a year old. How hard is it to understand a comment made on 30th of November was not made this year? --- Ohaider! -- (contribs) (talk) 18:27, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
