Still trying to learn how everything works - GW newbie.
I have fallen in love with the longbow/Shortbow combo, as I am mildly obsessed with archery in real life, and always saw a Ranger as a class that excels at ranged weapons.
Would this build be viable with that weapon combo, even though you mention sword/horn as your main weapon combo?

I'm using near equal build and I think you can try with Longbow/Shortbow combo, but shortbow uniqual bleeding effects will not be maximized without +condition damage traits. I really think that you should give a try to sword/horn as it is a lot of fun.
Personally I use longbow very often, it is a good weapon in connection with your bear for locations that you don't know and when you don't know what to expect. I'm switching for sword/horn+bird when I get to know what to expect from enemies or when playing with other people. I don't remember when I died last time. It is superb build and with s/h+bear you can kill 2/3 enemies with your lvl or even +1/+2 in few seconds since sword #1 skill hits multiple targets, so lvling is quite fast.

Great question - I did AC this weekend and it's true that the pet functionality was reduced. In that case I switched to two bears who were able to tank the mobs while the rest of our team threw out damage. Signet of Stone is really useful in that case.

In my opinion the best choice for dungeons is bear (he can tank trash mobs/minions for a short time) and ranged pet of your choice (for boss fights to increase your damage output and not die on AoE).

Nothing beats a straight up Longbow & Sword/Horn power/crit build :)

I was about to reply in your build topic where you were wondering about which weapon to use that you should really try Longbows.
I'm personally going for a very similliar build and so far it is so much fun. I like your utility skills in this one compared to this.
And I love how shortbow-condition-rangers stands and looks at my damage output and they are like "...but how..." :D
