    Like title says, ranger shouldnt be an elite, it should be regular class for eldar.

    rangers both in fluff and in tt rules are regular infantry and even balance wise youre looking at stalker bolter equivalent troop which eldar lack already.

    Ofc many ppl will want their ranger elite, sure make it happen, add pathfinder(minor reskin) as veteran option and throw outcast ranger as elite with cloak or some other unique mechanic.

    Rangers aren't being added

    Even if they were, as an Eldar main I firmly believe that an invisible sniper should not be a basic class. That's fucking ridiculous

    Yes im aware

    Also i mentioned cloak as special ability for elite and veteran variant, regular would be fine without cloak.

    Not only should it be a basic class, it should also fly, wear heavy armor and be AV capable:

    Ah shadow spectres, basically a lascannon with jetpack, these i can understand being an elite, you cant really remove jetpack to make them balanced as its part of their armor.

    Its more a Multimelta/Lascannon.

    The damage ramps up over time and you need multiple Shadow Spectres to focus fire to bring down a tank.

    Back in the day, Rangers were an elite choice. Only Alaitoc had them as a standard troop. Alaitoc also had the Pathfinders as a unique unit for their craftworld only. Did this change sometime???

    Personally I think having the Ranger as an elite is fine. In a game like this they would be very nasty.

    What I don't agree with is have an Autarch as an elite. THAT is an F-ing joke. With the joke being on us.

    What the ticker is that it'll most likely be a reskinned veteran Scorpion with a locked loadout. So nothing new for us but a skin.
