While rs is technically one of our damage skills I will not press the point. I would 100% agree with the damage part of your statement (for obvious reasons).

Even now in v4 rangers are still op. What you have to understand is that unlike rogues or tanks, rangers CAN solo without using pots or teaming up with a druid, due to their amazing light heal and bolas. Sure rangers don't have as much dps as a rogue or as much armor as a warrior, but they dont need it. Light heal and bolas is all you truly need to lv.
Also, you may complain about not killing things quick enough, but druids have it much worse then you, becuase it is impossible to solo efficiently as a druid without a crap ton of restos or sigils with a full dps build. Rangers CAN solo lv quick enough WITHOUT using restos, so I believe rangers are perfect the way they are. The only thing I can agree with is removing the heal buff in pvp for both rangers and druid.
Take a ranger into carrow and see just how well he does with bolas... Bolas (in my opinion- I will say that I don't use bolas norm for just this reason) is useless in enclosed spaces. The boggan rooms especially are too small to be constantly moving around without getting literally 3-4 or more adds on you- and that's without the boss being there. On the paths, sure I guess its okay but its a no go in the rooms. Not having enough dmg means that the mob you killed last will spawn and prolly attack you immediately (this has happened to me so many times I occasionally give up and go level in ow- which also can have the same bolas problem which is why I don't include the skill in my build anymore).
Moving on to druid leveling issues, yeah you guys aren't very fast killers. You are great over long term (bosses esp.) but not so great for the short term. I admit while I do have a druid alt I haven't gotten as far as level 80 yet and so I have nothing more than a general idea about how difficult it is to solo level as a druid, I can say OTM needs to fix your energy problem (and increase in damage in shrot term would prolly help heaps). I watch tanks (yes even tanks can do great damage), warriors, rogues just go nutz at leveling and then watch myself take 3 minutes to kill something that would take one of them half the time. I do think we can all unite on that fact, so OTM another heads up, cut the pvp heal cuts please.
