Default Glad vs. RNGer dps

So from my experience people would rather take a ranger than a glad for dps 95% of the time. However from what I have been seeing DW glads seem to out due ranger dps on boss fights and such. Whats the deal here are glads just better dps then rangers? or is there something im missing cause i play both at 60 and i enjoy pvp with them both so depending on pve im gonna make one my main.

Thanks Gearrz

Probably because people a stupid and think melee classes are to hard to heal or something. Same reason people don't like taking Sins to instances even though they're the best DPS class in the game.

Personally I'd take a Glad over a Ranger any day for DPS purposes. But I'd also make the Glad tank. There's very few Rangers out there that know how to DPS properly, while a medicore glad with a good DW setup can out DPS 99% of Rangers.

there's a lot of confusion where people relate DPS to burst damage.

DPS is damage per second, meaning the longer a fight takes, the more classes with longer sustainable damage will shine. D/W glads & sins excel at this, because they don't suffer long cooldowns between rotations nor have to rebuff as often.

Burst Damage is damage done per single attack, meaning the less HP a target has, the faster it drops. Classes like sorcs & rangers have a HUGE amount of burst damage and can often 1 or 2 shot most rubbish, whereas it will take 4 or 5 times as long for other classes to kill.

This is why in simple instances, where most the mobs are rubbish, and the bosses aren't exactly 10 minute battles... it's more beneficial to take a sorc or a ranger, because they just make it all take less time. rubbish mobs eat up a lot of time in an instance, which is why you see most people skipping as many as they can... hell, people get so irate by rubbish, they'll often "train" and kill themselves before having to clean.

It's not the fact that the DPS is better, it's the fact that people are impatient and want to get things done faster. That is why more people prefer burst... yet still refer to it as "DPS."

Its just easier to refer to all around DPS as "What the Meter says".

I have both and I'd rather take my glad. If I go on my glad though I'm tanking, can rip hate off temps easy anyway lol.

people who would prefer ranger dps over glad dps are pretty much advertising that they are noobs.

i still cant get over how many TS lfg posts i'll see on my server where they are 5/6 and it will say 'TS NEED RANGER/SORC' where the other 5 are temp,chant,cler,sm,sorc.

It's either cause people don't no DW glad do good dps or that the Templar is greedy in drops. But in also saying that u do come along a lot of scrub glads that hit like wet noodles

Sorcs are better for blitzing instances and rubbish mobs. Sins are better for duration boss fights.

Take Both
