Assassin have the best dagger skills in the end, ranger's have very little in the way of dagger skills but much more pure Longbow. You might mix in some fighter for extra hp early on, but starting with strider works fine too.

Assassin because of the augs. Ranger is more of a longbow vocation. With a skill that lets you shoot ten arrows in less than a second or two, it can cause a ton of damage. The Dagger skills with assassin is more of the standard but also one I would like to point out, Gale Harness. This increases you movement and attack speed of both regular attacks and skills.

strider still has the best dagger skills in terms of damage, as well as utility

assassin, being a hybrid class, isn't the best with either daggers or bows, but i would say is slightly ahead of strider for bows just because of lyncean sight, but they also have some really useful (but not particularly damaging) skills for daggers, like Wind/Gale Harness and Invisibility

Rangers have the best bow skills

gale harness actually increases the speed of EVERYTHING, including almost all animations, it makes you pick up items faster, mine ore faster, even climb ledges and enemies faster

Technically that is all movement speed isn't it?

also, rangers can only use the base dagger skills that have no class requirement, they don't get any special dagger skills of their own

early on in the game, Ensnare/Implicate + Helm/Skull Splitter is one of the most powerful attack combinations you'll have for a long time against smaller enemies (skull splitter is still really effective against larger enemies since it hits many times on the way down
