Neverwinter's New Hunter Ranger Class Coming In Next Major Content Update
Capable of both melee and ranged combat, Neverwinter's upcoming Hunter Ranger class will be a new choice for those who are looking for a class with fast-paced combat skills and good mobility. The developer said Hunter Ranger is by far the most requested class and with the high expectation, they want to make sure the when the new class comes out, it comes out great. Hunter Ranger will be available in next major update dubbed Shadowmantle.
You can fluently swap between long bow and dual blades, according to the developer, and you have to swap between the two weapons constantly in battle to make your combat more effective. Hunter Rangers dash shorter than the other classes do, but they dash with less stamina cost, which allow them to use this ability more frequently. In addition to the new class, the Shadowmantle update also adds one more Paragon Path for each of the existing classes, allowing you to have more options to specialize your character.
Shadowmantle will be released later this year. You can learn more at Polygon's preview article.
