New class: Shadow Ranger
Available for Night Elf and Blood Elf players.

The shadow ranger is a hunter/warlock hybrid. It possesses the same abilities as your standard hunter, exept that thay rely mainly on shadow damage instead of RAP. The ranger has most spells that you would find on a hunter, but with some of them removed or changed, a new talent tree, and a few new spells.
