Greatsword auto-attack is actually still decent.  Rangers access to tons of quickness so they will basically be throwing out greatsword attacks way faster than a guardian or warrior (minus Hundred Blades) can.  Moreover their greatsword skill set is much more mobile (Guardian and Warrior GS are both heavily reliant on skills that root you) so they can still do their big damage "burst" while on the move.

Actually the guardians GS was buffed nicely this time and they can use their AOE (Whirling Wrath) while moving now...and if you get caught in it you will lose health fast.

Last BE I was playing mostly longbow Ranger & rifle Warrior, this time engi cond dmg, and ranger can hit really hard. True for longbow, haven't met many using it, but one time a ranger make me bleed out before I could do him serious dmg, and engi got load of cond with the pistol. If any ranger caught me in melee I was done. Melee Ranger got lot of mobility, during other BE loved so much 1 hand sword that make you jumping/dancing around, if they made is viable as the GS good news.

From exterior pt of view during this BE, found the ranger balanced, perhaps longbow dmg needed a little buff? Compared to OP warrior that kill you in seconds or the guardian that have good dps & survivality I don't expect much change for release. And keep in mind ranger get a "free" pet, dunno if AI better, but pet if working well is a nice addition.

I personally don't mind it being a weak class. At least I got something to brag about when I take down a horde of warriors. Rangers are indeed under powered right now, it will either be this class or another.

Necro's suffer the same faith, they are ludicrously bad.
