Ranged dps seems low in this game.
Also repelling blast lock is the new cantrip archer?
Arent str rangers with mighty great bow supposed to knock back enemies with their arrows?
Just food for thought guys... No flame.
Ranged DPS, Rangers in particular, is superior to anything apart from Wizard with the right OP magic items and abusing the unbalanced rest mechanic. In BG3, martial classes received a *very strong buff* through the ridiculous ease of exploiting higher ground/flanking for advantage rolls. This buff becomes huge when combined with Great Weapon Master and Sharpshooter feats (latter not yet implemented), - especially combined with Larian nerfing enemy AC and buffing their hit points (and excessive OP magical items likely to come). Larian has in their infinite wisdom implemented an ever-burning candle that you can dip weapon in to get free damage as well. Then you have poison coating, OP barrelmancy etc.
No need to be jealous of the Warlock who have been both nerfed and buffed in BG3. Nerfed by the ease everyone can exploit elemental effects and nerfed relative to other casters by the rest mechanic, but somewhat buffed by the huge amount of verticality in the game combined with with the repelling blast invocation. Eldritch/repelling blast is bugged and does not cause fall damage for many however.
