Dark and darker: Detailed guide on playing vs Ranger
Here's a revised version of your message for clarity and readability:
I'd like to share some valuable insights, even though they might not be what everyone wants to hear:
1, When navigating the game, remember that you can jump over traps. In the air, pressing the crouch button can provide some extra distance. It's not absolutely essential, but it's a good practice because there are no downsides to doing it. I've noticed many players struggling to jump on top of barrels, so this is a fundamental skill to master.
2, Avoid pushing through narrow hallways. These tight spaces greatly benefit ranged characters, such as the ranger.
3, Employ lateral movement as a tactic. Moving from side to side in Dark and Darker can be highly effective, as it can throw off your opponents' aim and reduce your chances of getting hit by up to 50%, regardless of their aiming skills.
4, In pursuit or during rotations, consider sheathing your weapons by pressing X. This can be a smart move when you need to make a quick escape.
5, When trying to dodge attacks, always look sideways. Hits to your arms or legs typically deal minimal damage.
6, Don't unequip your gear, even if it's of low quality. Light gear provides significant protection against damage, especially because Physical Damage Reduction (PDR) is currently high. They've even added stats to gray gear to discourage players from taking everything off.
7, When opening doors, crouch to avoid getting headshot. While this temporarily obscures your vision, it's a necessary precaution.
8, Remember that every time a ranger shoots at you, you gain distance. This is because the longbow imposes a movement speed penalty when drawn, even with the perk. Feel free to advance creatively, but avoid moving in a straight line. A slight detour can help you close the gap effectively.
9, If you're playing on the Coliseum map, remove potions from your belt. They stand out like a beacon and make you an easy target.
10, A green glow on a weapon indicates one of two things: an armor-piercing skill or the quick fire skill. Take a moment to assess the situation based on this information before reacting.
11, For casters, when peeking, try to do so from the side your arm casts from. This allows you to jiggle the corner, providing an opportunity to shoot without overextending. Most rangers are not adept at predicting from which side casters will peek, so this tactic can give you an advantage.
12, Don't underestimate the importance of Health and PDR (Physical Damage Reduction) as stats. Meeting certain thresholds in these stats can significantly impact your ability to defeat default enemies or wizards with lower base HP. While I won't delve into gear building specifics, keep this in mind when considering your equipment choices.
13, It is important to accumulate Dark and darker Gold, maximize it to improve your character.
