Thank you Redfencer56 for this guide.
Ranger with assassin spec is pretty decent soloing job at low levels. The first points I got I invested into sneak. Now having come from the background of playing final fantasy online for a number of years we didnt have the split in the jobs/classes like wow or this game since it is modeled after wow.
I saw under the sneak ability that once you start investing points into assassin/ranger you stun the mobs on your first attack. This creates a neat opportunity when standing at max attack range. You get between 3-4 shots in before the mob closes to within melee range. This happens because of the stun affect. The mob is stationary for a few seconds suffering from stun. Not only is this useful now but should gameloft introduce instances in future updates, you could, by using sneak => ranged attack to give your tanks a chance to heal themselves and your healers to do the same. You could even cycle the stun affect to keep the bosses in lockdown. This would be a broken exploit if not patched. Would make instances terribly easy to fly through with just ranger assassins.
So… I cast toxicity on all three of my weapons (you can only cast it once per weapon). This lasts for 30 minutes. Now I’m not 100% sure if it’s only good on one weapon or if it is indeed applied to all three. I tested this out to see with casting on just one weapon and found that the proc rate was less as in not always did it proc in each encounter. When I had it applied to all three i found that if it didn’t land on the first shot it proc’d on either the second, third or when my character meleed if the mob got close enough.
