Bows and dual blades set to become very popular again in the Forgotten Realms.

Is it a hunter or is it a ranger? Well in Neverwinter it’s apparently both: the new Hunter Ranger class is set to launch later this year with the upcoming ‘Shadowmantle’ expansion, free of charge to all Neverwinter players.
The Hunter Ranger is designed to be a quick, mobile class with a mix of melee and ranged attacks, for players who can think fast on their feet in the heat of battle. Pressing tab swaps the Hunter Ranger between ranged and melee modes, with melee mode being a classic pair of dual blades.
‘Shadowmantle’ will also bring a new Paragon Path to every class, which means at level 30 everyone will have to make a choice of how to specialise. The Control Wizard will get a new Master of Flame path, the Devoted Cleric will get the Anointed Champion path, and the Great Weapon Fighter and the Guardian Fighter will get access to each other’s paths.
There’s a bunch more stuff coming, which we won’t rehash — you can read all about it in this Polygon story here.
