The Hero/Heroine must finish the quest Ranger Changer to unlock this vocation. by talking to a person at the base of the Heights of Lonelieness, the player can accept a quest which involves poisoning Hocus Chimeras and then letting them die by poison, nothing else. After doing this 3 times, the ranger vocation is unlocked.

The Ranger vocation is late in the game after completing Quest 112. Rangers have the unique skillset "Ruggedness", and can also use skill points to learn Axe, Bow, Boomerang, and Fisticuffs skills. Their Coup-de-Grace is "Brownie Boost," which increases attack, defense, and applies Insulate.
