Default BIS Ranger Weapons (Blue)

I've looked around and there doesn't seem to be much discussion about the optimal Ranger weapon set-up at 60.

From everything I've read regarding DPS formulas / weapon bonus / attack bonus, it seems like Tolan`s Longsword of the Glade is an inferior mainhand to weapons like Baton of Flame & a few other ToV 1Hers, and an inferior offhand to Swiftwind due to the lack of the 30 ATK bonus that is included in the worn effect.

Would BIS be baton in MH / claws of lightning in offhand? Would the improved ratio of the claws overcome the 30 ATK bonus worn effect on Swiftwind?

Baton/Claw is likely the best pair. Honestly, I rarely unequip my primal 2 hander. The dps difference is negligible to K's Flame/Tolan's.

BFG is pretty cool but you'll need the bracer to summon arrows.

It was at this point I decided to no longer be kind to the casuals as they have extreme short term memory. They did this to themselves, unfortunately.

I can't get over the Cek 2h hitting for 5 damage less than the primal 2h [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] It breaks my immersion.

Very interesting, hadn't heard of Ranger 2HS as a viable high end option. Does it Parse better than the Baton/Claw combo? I.e. is it possible BIS is actually a 2Her?

Almost certain a Baton/Claw is going to beat out Meljeldin on most fights but it won't be by much. It's a lot more fun to hit for 275, too.
