Here is a generalist ranger build that favors beasts. I specifically took 15 pts. in nature to share food buffs etc., but I am unsure if this will overcome the fact that my pet is losing base pts. in important places like Wilderness Survival, Skirmishing, and Marksmanship. I've tried to make up some of this with Rune sets and weapon runes. My playstyle with this build would be to pop in and out of melee range and harry opponents in PvP and PvE while giving mobs and players a reason to fear my pet a bit. I went with the Long bow for greater burst damage over the short bow. Let me know what you think ranger fans..
