As with Clerics, Rangers automatically have access to all their spells once they reach a high enough level, and can freely swap which are prepared at shrines and taverns.

Spell Points: The SP values indicated with an asterisk are assumed, based on a linear 15-point increase per level, and need confirming from in-game experience.

Combat Style Feats: The ranged and melee combat style feats gained at levels 2, 6 and 11 are automatically obtained even if the ranger does not meet the usual prerequisites for these feats. In addition, the ranger does not need to wear light or no armor to use these feats. This contrasts greatly with the combat style, improved combat style, and combat style mastery rules from PnP.

[edit] Spells

Rangers cast divine spells.

Upon advancing to level 4, rangers gain the ability to tap the divine power in nature and manifest that energy in the form of spells. To cast a spell a ranger must have a Wisdom score of 10 + the spell's level.

Dungeons and Dragons Online allows ability score boosting items and spells to qualify for reaching the minimum Wisdom score for casting spells. For example, a ranger with a Wisdom score of 8 could equip a +6 Wisdom enhancing item to reach a total Wisdom score of 14 and be able to cast level 4 ranger spells.
