We've been playing 2nd Edition since playtest now, and I've come to wonder about the Ranger. One of our party members is a Goblin Ranger with the Hunter's Edge choice Flurry (played by my son). He is equipped with two goblin Dogslicers. This character seemingly does nearly game-breaking damage. The Dogslicers do d6 damage and are agile and backstabber. He is multi-classed into a rogue, so he does the 2d6+4(striking weapon) plus d6 sneak attack plus 1 for backstabber.

He uses Twin Takedown every turn (why would he not?) so gets 4 attacks in a round at full attack bonus, -3, -4, -4. He works well with my fighter and his own animal companion, so he very nearly always targets a flat-footed opponent (effectively lowering his negative from MAP by 2; ie attacks at +2, -1, -2, -2 over full attack bonus). Combine that with my fighter, who trips most turns, he gets opportunity attacks against a foe virtually every turn, for another full attack each turn.

This guy normally hits 3-4 turns per round (including the opportunity strike) and does 15 or more damage per strike. He crits like mad, so the damage is consistently higher.

My son and I were discussing this, and we are afraid that we nearly trivialize a lot of fights as he can usually take out or nearly a foe or 2 per turn.

I guess my questions are:

1) Are we playing this ranger correctly?
2) Is this guy outside the norm as far as damage goes?


I have a question about the wording of the Staff Sweep level 6 ability from the Staff Acrobat dedication. An excerpt from the rule states "Roll an athletics check to Shove or Trip, and compare the result to the appropriate DCs of up two foes, each of whom must be within your reach and no more than 5 feet apart".

Does this mean the foes must be in adjacent squares, or does this mean the foes must have no more than one 5' square between them? If they must be in adjacent squares, why would they not phrase it that way?

Thanks for your help.


I may have overlooked it somewhere, but I did not see any notes indicating what size party the challenges In Age of Ashes are written for. I assume it's a 4-player party, but would love to know for certain.

I'll be running a 6-person party through, and would welcome any general advice as to how to easily increase the challenge of the various encounters. (I know, add more monsters...but I was hoping I had missed a section in the bestiary or core rule book that gave a little guidance as to how to increase the challenge without going overboard).

I am registered to participate in 3 scenarios for Pathfinder 2 at Gencon this year, and I cannot seem to find enough information about them. Primarily, do I need to bring a developed character with me, or will pre-generated characters be provided? If I need to develop characters, does anyone know where I can find the rules and how to register them, if needed?

Thank you in advance for your help
