Friday: Ranger in Class Shop

Ranger Class Coming to Battleon's Class Shop!

We've received thousands of requests to provide a faster way to earn Ranger Class since it was released in early 2011... and now we're finally offering it for 2,000 AdventureCoins! For those of you who wish to earn your Class through battle, sweat, and (overcoming) fears, you'll still be able to unlock it by ranking up your SandSea reputation!

What IS a Ranger, and how do they battle?

They are stealthy, wealthy, and wise to the ways of their opponents. Able to take down tyrants without blinking an eye or breaking a bowstring, you'll range far and wide with this Class, gaining gold and glory! Rangers heavily rely on Strength, Endurance, and Dexterity, and the keenest of archers arm themselves with Thief, Fighter, and Lucky Enhancements.

Zhoom, the Ranger, watches as his students train!

Before, only those who survived the unforgiving Sandsea and held a Rank 10 Sandsea Reputation could call themselves a Ranger. Now, you will be able to purchase the Class, but you will still need to rank it up to unlock the skills!
