@Voovus: rangers *always* use branded ammo in the endgame in current V, so a CL 40 ranger is doing 27*3*(5+2) = 560 damage against nearly all monsters (assuming Bard and +10 branded ordinary arrows.) I did not take into account losing branding as well as an extra shot.

Losing Resistances makes it even worse; in current V it makes up for bad HP to a huge extent--as you pointed out when trying to fight Ancient Dragons. No amount of extra damage can fix this. Without that, you won't be fighting Smaug until after finishing stat gain, unless you carry resistance potions. But that is really no fun.
