No problem anon, I'm glad you're enjoying the game. I guess you found the Soul Scepter or however it's called. I also think you've now realized what's the main issue when using a Ranger - you can either lose the elemental damage Wizards provide, the poison DoT of the Assassin that ignores armor, the healing or one of the frontline fighters. IMO, the optimal party composition for a Saga Ranger is him in the back row (equipped with the paralyzing artifact) with one White Wizard, one healer (I personally prefer Prophetesses over Hierophants) and three frontliners of your choice (it seems you haven't gained access to the final tier so I won't spoil them for you). Sure, you lose the poison DoT but since you can perma-paralyze most tougher units - and most importantly, the Capitol Guardian - at the very start of the encounter, you can still auto-resolve the encounter and get tons of XP.
