Saw a warrior with a rifle drop me pretty fast with bleeds and was badass.

I am leaning towards a warrior right now, do you think I should actually play a ranger?  Guardian?

Never knew about that. I just want someone with good mobility and excellent ranged damage.

Pets AI is terrible.
The skills you have to activate are broken, have really long activation times.
They get aoe'd most of the time, so you have to switch pets on cd usually.

Engineers can have perma-swiftness incredibly easy on tier 1 traits (and perma-vigor if you want). Combine with condition stacking to the max and its great.

That said, go theif if you want to win automatically.

engineer (with the right traits) can have 25% more speed infight, 10% Speed with a Kit and gain Swiftness(33%) and Vigor.
If you want a escaper with a lot of utility, then the engineer is the right one.
Catch me if you can!!!

Warrior can crit 15k+ easily from range of 1500. No other class can do anything like this.

Despite popular belief Rangers are a fine class but they won't win DPS awards. They are always fast thanks to a 25% perma speed skill and have one of the best if not the best speed buffs. Rangers have good support as several of their abilities and pet abilities are decent AoE but certainly not the best support class. They do OK damage but nothing to sing about. That said they tag A LOT of stuff and do enough damage to warrant bag drops so I tend to out badge many of my friends. Ultimately the ranger class is a utility class good and decent in plenty of roles but don't seem to excel at anything specifically.

Yeah so long as you stay within range & don't dodge the warrior standing still for 5 seconds while his shot charges... or kill him  :P  I had one try this lastnight & he got temporal curtained off a cliff.

Easy if you're a might stacking glass cannon, which is the worst type of warrior. I agree that rifle warrior is the best ranged class, but don't expect to land 15k kill shots and still be useful, more like 6-8k.

And let's not forget about the situations: Obstructed, out of range, blocked, reflected, attacked, etc.. It looks easy on paper but large scale fights are a massive shaitstorm for a reason.
