Guide to Ranged DPS: Gameplay Tips and Class Selection
2015/01/03 at 12:53 PM
Following our earlier
guide to tanks and tanking
, today we have a similar guide to ranged DPS. Like the earlier tanking guide, this is aimed at newer players, or players who want to try a new role.
Guide to Dealing Damage and Ranged DPS.
Dealing damage, or, in short, DPSing, is one of the most common roles in World of Warcraft, which can be separated in two large groups:
Those who do damage mostly to nearby enemies, or, as we call, enemies in melee range.
Those who do damage to enemies usually from a far distance.
This guide will cover the latter group, helping you pick within the options available from all the classes and explaining the basics that every DPS should know!
Dealing damage is the most competitive role in World of Warcraft. Ranged damage dealers have a few basic responsibilities:
Make sure to deal as much damage as possible.
Position yourself properly to make sure to be in range of your enemies and not standing in something bad.
Unless explicit told to, avoid to stay nearby other raid members.
Kill enemies quickly so tanks and healers can have an easier time.

While we won't bore you with all the bug fixes and custom data tweaks, here's a list of the site's most interesting new features, guides, and contests in the past year! You can check out the

We're always trying to help players improve at their roles, or pick up a new one, and so, thanks to
, we have a basic guide to tanks and tanking. Of course, if you're a seasoned tank, much of this may not be news to you, although you may learn something about classes other than your own. For newer players, would-be tanks, and anyone wanting to learn more about tanking, read on.
World of Warcraft Warlords of Draenor Guide to Tanks and Tanking for Patch 6.0.3.
Tanking in Warlords of Draenor has remained largely unchanged as a role since the introduction of active mitigation in Mists of Pandaria. If you're new to tanking, your base role responsibilities are as follows:
Ensure that any enemy mobs that can be tanked are attacking you instead of your fragile allies.
Position enemies to best enable your allies and avoid unnecessary damage.
Use your mitigation abilities to ensure you're taking as little damage as possible.
This guide aims to give you the basics on how to tank, and a summary of the five tanking classes in Warlords of Draenor.
