Again Volley is way better than Conjure Barrage by a lot.
Volley was just the better of two bad options. Volley was ok.
The ranger was "strong". It had a ton of exploits. Conjure spells. GWM/SS abuse stacked on Hunter's mark. Dipping into rogue or fighter easy.
The rangers in my group were strong without exploits.
To the rest. I refuse to look at numbers at this time. Seemless is more important here. Numbers can be tweaked later.
The ranger in 5e, without tasha, though in no way underpowered is just not really fun:
Twf with animal companion :/.
Hunters mark and twf first round :/.
Melee and concentration :/.
Swift quiver and hinter's mark :/.
Multiattack* feature and extra attack or twf or the hunter level 3 feature that gives an extra attack :/ :/ :/ :/.
All needlessly annoying. The ranger in the playtest seems to not have those issues.
*Edit: with multiattack I meant whirlwind in this case!
