I actually just started playing Ranger for the first time yesterday, and while running this build in both pick-up and tourny's I was doing quite well (works a bit better in Spvp). Plenty of surviability as long as you are good at using the evades properly and pet skills - make good use of the bringing out the hound at the right time for his knockdown. I can still do enough damage to even down some bunkers (they can't even begin to kill me anyway) - glass cannon's can go down quickly enough but you best be using the evade skills and dodges right. I try running with as much condition removal as I can, but it still isn't enough against good Necro's (just dodge as much as you can).
What I like best about the build is the ability to roam, hold points, buff self/allies, and still down ppl. It's the first true hybrid that I feel happy with in my 2 months of playing. Others I have tried seemed to lack in at least one area. I'm sure there is a variation of this build somewhere and others have run and/or are running it, but I just wanted to share my experience as I was plesanlty surprised at how much I loved it seeing as I would venure a guess that Rnager is the class I see/fear the least in most Spvp situations.
Have fun if you choose to try it! I know there are a lot of subpar traits around the ranger, but this is one of the builds I think that is pretty optimal.
