Top 10 D&D 5e Ranger Magic Items | Nerd Immersion

Top 10 D&D 5e Ranger Magic Items | Nerd Immersion

So choosing a top 10 magic items for ranger is a little tricky. The main reason being there are so many different versions of Ranger floating around for 5e, I don’t know which one you’d be playing with. Also you could easily be a Strength or Dexterity based ranger, which could impact what items you’d want. I’m assuming you’re going to be playing a Dexterity based Ranger and some mixture of all the printed versions.

Top 10 Ranger Magic Items:
10. Insignia of Claws
9. Oathbow
8. Cloak of the Bat
7. Amulet of Health
6. Sentinel’s Shield
5. Figurine of Wonrous Power
4. Quiver of Ehlonna
3. Bracers of Archery
2. Dragon Scale Mail
1. Scimitar of Speed

Let me know what other lists you’d like to see in the future! Next week it’s Top 10 Magic Items for Rogues!

    I’m going aarakocra gloom stalker. I have 19 Dex at lvl 3 and I’m going for 20 dex and 14 int next ASI.

    What items would you recommend for me?

  2. Cmdr_Tom on November 21, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Cloak of the Bat on a Gloom Stalker Ranger …
    What are you man?!
    I’m Batman.

  3. CaptainBowser on November 21, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    Great video, been looking for ways to buff my ranger in an Ack Inc game. Keep it up 🙂

  4. Wolfie Mac on November 21, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    Are you ok man? 🤣 seem like you’re not enjoying this at all

  5. Jacob Fox on November 21, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    The sun blade is also really good as a melee counterpart to your bow because it’s a +2 sword and it has versatility and finesse which is really good if you have high strength or dexterity. The only downside is you have to use a bonus action to ignite it and it requires attunment

  6. Dr. Andrew J. Black on November 21, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    All of these are great

  7. Alish Lalani on November 21, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Rogues (specifically Assassins) should have a weapon of warning!!

  8. Falionna on November 21, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    Arrow of Slaying > Oathbow

    Goggles of Night on a gloomstalker. Gives a solid +90 darkvision to what your race have.

    For fluff. Amulet of the Planes for a horizon walker.

  9. Blair Robbins on November 21, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    Heh, archery…

    my ranger only punches

  10. Jake Stavinsky on November 21, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    I love taking 1 level dip into Cleric so you can use fun Quarterstaffs like the Staff of Withering.

  11. I leave mean comments on November 21, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    stop touching your nose.

  12. Bobby Baker on November 21, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Beast master ranger does the most consistent single target no resource at will damage of all classes if you don’t use feats.
    Just choose giant poisonous snake.

  13. Miguel del Mazo on November 21, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Best item for a player that picks ranger is a set of dice and a player’s handbook to help them make a new character.

  14. Young BD 247 on November 21, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    10:49 Bracers of Archery are a +2 to Damage rolls only, it says nothing in the text about any increase to the attack rolls. Am I missing something?

  15. RobRobRoy on November 21, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    The sad thing is people, especially new players, want to play Rangers. They are pretty weak though.

    The revised ranger UA makes it somewhat better.

  16. Seth Patterson on November 21, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    I know I’m late to the party, but I wanted to point out 2 things. First, the Bracers of Archery only give a +2 to damage, not to attack. Second, based off the Oathbow and the description of generic magic weapons, bows don’t have a +modifier. They have effects, as far as I’ve seen. The arrows have the +modifers

  17. Bobby Baker on November 21, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    Oathbow sounds amazing with elven accuracy.

  18. A M on November 21, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    I’m looking at playing a Ranger in a Party with no Wizard or Bard. Probably take the Goggles of Object Reading to get Identify.

  19. Acatia2 on November 21, 2021 at 8:44 pm

    The Cloak of the Bat is honestly pretty cool, as a Gloom Stalker I kind of hope I can find one someday. Bracers of Archery are probably the simplest most obvious one too I suppose. Kind of want that Pendant of the Claw… but that would require my DM to allow me to tame another animal / act on her cryptic hint of reviving my old one, so that’s more like RP flavour then anything at that point. Given I’m the only one in our group that still uses their starter weapon, I’m sad to say Oathbow looks fantastic, even if half of it is made null cuz of Sharpshooter ……..

  20. Joe Dredd on November 21, 2021 at 8:45 pm

    Ranger is my favourite class.

  21. Tempest Grav on November 21, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    Doood, u need a coffee 👍
    Workin too hard…but thanks for the content.

  22. AzraelThanatos on November 21, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    For magic bows, there is a magic hand crossbow, can’t remember which adventure it’s from though.

  23. orestesmkb on November 21, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Are lengendary items off the list because they are too high level and hard for parties to get them?

    Ps: are there legendary items good for rangers? Haha

  24. Sean Wisniewski on November 21, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Hey one magic item that almost no one uses is the robe of eyes which gives you 360 degree vision, advantage on perception checks, 120ft of dark vision, see invisibility, and the ability to see into the astral plane up to 120ft; to this even better it is a rare magic item so if your me playing a human rogue and you get the observant feat at 1st level then you’d be seeing everything

  25. Sean Wisniewski on November 21, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    also with the quiver you can draw weapons from it unlike the bag of holding where you have to take the time to get it out of the bag

  26. Stormcrow Legendary on November 21, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    The new updates for ranger was needed. I’m a total noob and my ranger is a dmpc healbot npc, but he needed something more than all the stuff I did to make him a mobile shelter for the PC halfling. High AC for level 2 and healing spells. That’s it. Granted he doesn’t need much more as the rogue is the heroine, but still.

  27. Dana Lintott on November 21, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Looking forward to warlock, but I think you should split between a meleelock and a controller., because iv got dual shortswords, planning a dip in swords bard.

  28. Jason Jase on November 21, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    I’m playing a ranger sword 1D6 dagger 1D4.
    A sorcerer in our group hits 5 enemies at once causing 39 hit points of damage plus knocking guys down. All with one spell. Who would you rather be

  29. Henrique cabral on November 21, 2021 at 8:54 pm

    o sue outao titanrry uff darasdgon e uma nmerirda

  30. Big Mike on November 21, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    I also like the “weapon of warning” from the DMG. Ranger should have their head in a swivel and be on the lookout for ambushers.

  31. Davidh4 on November 21, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Druids,rangers, and warlocks are my favorite classes
    Edit: Did you do warlocks yet?

  32. Ah Well on November 21, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Any Horizon Walker specific suggestions?…for those interplanar treks and destination outpost hub requirements.

  33. robert ferullo on November 21, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Why would you be sorry, I play a ranger and constantly cause more damage than anyone in my party which included an OP Demi god that can cast chain lightning

  34. Nickolas Holmes on November 21, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    *Relevant and Supportive Comment*

  35. Jim C on November 21, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Scimitar of speed is a bad choice. Rangers have a ton of bonus action abilities and spells. Also dual wielding negates its use which you almost always want to do since hunters Mark is per hit. I’m playing a ranger now. From level one up to level 12 currently. One of the biggest things a ranger needs is AC. Even just a ring of protection or magic studded leather is huge. My character has a cloak of displacement which is great for a ranger. Especially if you have the Hunter’s multi attack defense

  36. Sean Callahan on November 21, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    The Quiver would be a great item to store mundane arms in for later, like when you need to arm prisoners or peasants for a revolt if you don’t have a bag of holding

  37. Isaac Karr on November 21, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Spider climb is rangerly.

  38. astealthyfish on November 21, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Is revised ranger not to be used anymore? I mean it is unearthed arcana so it was never official in the first place.

  39. mr roar104 on November 21, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Not sure why everyone hates rangers so much. Could the kit use slight amounts of work? Sure. It definitely does enough damage though

  40. Jereme Clark on November 21, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    I have just started playing a beastmaster ranger strictly from the PHB to really see how bad it is. In comparison the party is made of a conquest paladin, life cleric, and zealot barbarian. So I am greatly appreciated that this list was made to help me focus in on what things I’ll need to get a hold of.

    Great video and I think it was fairly well balanced list.

  41. Phil Peters on November 21, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Im homebrewing a variant of the Oathbow to make it a culminative item. Rather it being stuck in a bow I’m turning them into missiles for ranged attacks that once stuck into a creature every successive attack on that creature deals 1d6 piercing damage. The character gains more as they level up by the time you’d attain a very rare item you’d have 3. So the maths works the same but allows it to be spread out on multiple enemies or stacked up on 1 and without the command word BS

  42. A SadWeeaboo on November 21, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Ok rangers are good and fun if you use the optional features. The one thing that does suck is all the subclasses are bad a boring other than gloomstalker and drakewarden

  43. Troll Face on November 21, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    I love you nerd daddy 🙂

  44. Joshua Chapman on November 21, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Pretty solid.

  45. JCinLapel on November 21, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Years ago in third edition i played an elven wizard that most confused for a ranger because i carried a long bow and a quiver of Quiver of Ehlonna the difference was i only carried 10 arrows but 35 scrolls rolled up on arrow shafts and 5 wands (Detect Magic, Magic Missile, Lighting Bolt, Fire Ball, and Cure Wounds) the DM was so shocked he let me do it.

  46. Hammer_Tongs on November 21, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    folks should look up the dragon magazine number 43 I think. in the mag
    it has a special class called ranger/mage. just something everyone
    should look into

  47. Colm on November 21, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    Could you be anymore disinterested in doing this video ?

  48. Captain Cool Cat on November 21, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Yes rogue is next!

  49. Sean Wisniewski on November 21, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    the amulet of health is useful for any character as it removes the need to invest into constitution allowing you to put your ability scores and their improvements into other things like getting a feat or increasing your mental attributes

  50. Natsirt666 on November 21, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    You reckon you could do a recurring list of the best (in your opinion) homebrew items on DnDBeyond? You could also do a recurring video of the worst/most OP ones you have found on there. 🙂
