Required for Nightmare difficulty
on June 29, 2014
I have almost every Skylander, and my favorites have always been the faster ones. Free Ranger isn't the fastest, but the tornado attack that his Ranger base makes him so powerful that the only other skylander that can compare is Magna Charge and his magnet base. However, Free Ranger can pick up a crowd of enemies (whereas Magna Charge can only drag 2 at the most) and knock them off balance which keeps them from attacking, which is very important as you go up in difficulty. The only enemies this doesn't work on are mages and the large enemies like Golems. On Nightmare difficulty, you can only take a few hits before defeat so keeping the enemies reeling is important while you whittle away their hit points. I had a regular Free Ranger and I got a Legendary Free Ranger so I could have a backup in case one is defeated during a difficult level. My favorite combos are Wash Ranger because of his powerful sword and bubbles to incapacitate enemies but Magna Ranger is my pick in almost every circumstance. His blaster isn't my favorite, but his ability to throw enemies off of cliffs makes a big difference in high difficulty arenas and levels.
