I am a LV10 Razorclaw DEX Ranger heading towards the Battlefield Archer Path with the frostcheese combo.
Our DM declared that as of Lv11 we will be allowed to choose a BG and Theme - as long as it matches our (still to be written) background story.
I thought that Sohei would be a great choice due to it's bonus to Perception and Insight, as I am the party's only trained Perception char. However it's encounter power only offers a minor 'melee' attack, is this minute enough to overlook?
As for the other, I am leaning towards "Occupation - Hunter" for the +2 Perception bonus.
Which BG and Theme would be worth considering for a DEX ranger?
I wield a Superior Crossbow, have the speedloader feat and mix up hit and run tactics with high ground and sniper.
