I've been reading so much negative stuff about rangers that it kept me from trying the class, once I did though I had no idea why anyone would complain so much. Plenty of fun in PvP overall.

i have to agree, honestly i'm having fun in spvp and i'm quite successful, i had only some problems against mesmer a few times and thieves if i can't dodge or get away the first few seconds of the fight.
I think most of the ranger complaints are about PVE. It's definitely a different story in spvp.
First off, thanks for the great build. I'm having lots of success with it and loving the guardian more and more. I'm currently running a full knight set with PVT weapons, but if I want more DPS for uh, let's say CoF speed farming and don't want to invest in berserker trinkets, will exotic Cavalier's do just fine?
One thing that I would like to point out is that with Banner of Strength, the warrior gets a boost as well for even more damage compared to the ranger. I think the warrior can put out that damage without the help of Banner of Strength.
So I was reading stuff about Eles post patch and I think Eles served as the testing grounds for incoming nerfs to skills like Swoop, Monarch's Leap and Signet of Stone? Swoop and Monarch's Leap acts like RTL and SoS is like a longer version Mist Form (although SoS doesn't have stability and Rangers can attack while SoS is active). I wouldn't be surprised if they made all charged moves like the current RTL and locked the utility bar when using an invul skill. Thoughts?
