What is ranged?

Ranged is one of the three combat classes here in Grinderscape. It involves using bows, crossbows, and thrown weapons to damage opponents from a distance, and ranged armour can mostly be made from animal hides or from various of shops. All you have to do, is to put your bow and arrows in your equipment to start range.

Tip: it's also useful to train Slayer while ranging.
