See the build's talk page for discussion and ramifications not noted here.  
  • Decrease Expertise to 9 + 1 + 1. Increase Marksmanship to 10 + 1 and Protection Prayers to 8.
  • Decrease Expertise to 11 and Protection Prayers to 0. Increase Marksmanship and Wilderness Survival to 10 + 1.

This build concentrates on the Ranger's snaring abilities gained from the elite skill Crippling Shot. With other utility skills from the Wilderness Survival line, the user is able to spread conditions throughout the enemy team. In combination with condition removal provided from the Monk's Protection Prayers line, and the use of the Ranger's Expertise attribute, Touch and Ranger skills have reduced energy costs. This results in an extremely versatile build that can provide both excellent defense as well as offense for a PvP team.


A build commonly found in all PvP arenas.
