This page is about the Ascendancy class. For the Ascendant passive, see Raider (Ascendant passive).

The Raider is an Ascendancy class for Rangers.


The Raider is an attack, speed and avoidance oriented class centered around frenzy charges, Onslaught, or Phasing through kills and combat. She can generate frenzy charges with Way of the Poacher and gain additional benefits for each charge through Avatar of the Slaughter. Rapid Assault allows for easy access to the Onslaught buff and Avatar of the Chase further increases the Onslaught effect with additional bonuses towards evasion. With Quartz Infusion she is able to gain the Phasing buff and increased elemental damage. Avatar of the Veil allows for further benefits while phasing, like elemental ailment immunity and exposure against nearby enemies. Evasion and dodge-based builds utilizing attacks greatly benefit from this Ascendancy class.
