In the beta, I played a Ranger and had no problem being the cookie cutter "bleed and bird surge." It was very easy for this play style to come through. As I have progressed in the game, I now prefer a more durable build rather than a glass cannon. While I know the support hunter is good for teams that are coordinated and have seen through the TGN guys, it just isn't viable at all for random play. It feels like in order to do anything I need to be with someone because my damage is so low. The stats that are required just aren't available in sPvP because of the stats only being on accessories.
I tried a vitality pet build but that requires so much to even make it worthwhile that I have to go back to glass cannon. Idea of the build turns %vitality into power which is reflected in the pets.
Am I just completely terrible? Is this a problem for other classes?
Note: I'm trying to make a build good for solo "Play Now!" sPvP that is defensive.
