    Default Nuking Ranger-type Build?

    I know nothing about Guild Wars.

    I want to really give this game a shot, but have been told by several people that the build I make is very important.

    My normal role in a MMO is a glass-cannon type caster type, but I've never really played a game where I've had a pet fight alongside me and that seems spectacular.

    When I search some of the wiki sites dedicated to GW I can't really find any builds that utilize this, is it just not feasible? Am I not looking hard enough?

    I would think that sending in a pet to tank and then nuking would be kind of a logical thing, but then again - I'm a noob.

    I don't mind what class I have to be as long as it's ranged, and I get to use a pet.

    Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks so much.

    The only viable pet build I'm able to find is the bunny thumper, so I guess I'll give it a shot.

    I guess I don't mind being melee as long as I do well, and get to use a pet. ^^

    I don't know how to help you, since i've not played with pets myself (Rangers in my opinion are good for shutting down opponents).

    Check there if you haven't already. I skimmed through the ranger bit and couldn't find much, but hopefully you'll find something useful.

    i beg to differ you can tank with pets.http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Call_of_Protection is a great tanking skill combined with http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Heal_as_One, then take http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Predator%27s_Pounce for an additional heal maybe even http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Symbiotic_Bond.

    IF you are interesting in playing with pets.. its best to start here to see what pet you want and what kind of evolution you want.
