Ranged Slayer


Advice


So I'm starting up a new Slayer character. Whe I first looked, it seemed like a range-heavy class, but looking through the forums, most seem to play it more as a combat rogue. Am I doing something wrong here?


Because you have access to the ranger fighting style, you can build a slayer any way you want. Ranged, 2H, TWF, etc. I even have an intimidate build on the shelf waiting to be used. It just so happens that slayer is one of the few classes that can do a STR TWF build b/c of the ranger feats.

The other reason you tend to see melee build is normally easier to get sneak attacks with melee, which is part of the appeal of the class.


Slayer is a really good class because of the ranger fighting style - not the roguish Rogue talents. The archetypes are a minefield, but there are a few gems there too. It also sets up nicely to multi-class really well Slayer 6/ Fighter 6.
