Idk if im doing something wrong, i deal decent dmg (still lower than ranged DPS like ranger and mage ofc) when hitting a stationary target, but its so easy to get kited when they can move and cast, whereas our skill ranges are tiny
My guess would be that you've been overlooking your Non-Chained skills. I play both Ranger and Mage, and can always tell when I'm battling another class that ignores their non-chained skills because they're not closing in instantly and laying a stun/cc on me. Rangers suffer the most compared to any other class when it comes to getting CC'd. Lay constant CC on a ranger and he's dead. Mages aren't as bad against CC, but by the time they win the CC battle, their mana management becomes an issue because they've depleted a good portion of their mana pool and will lose by attrition.
