How can I help combat be more diverse? I'm a player, but I'm open to suggesting things to my DM.
We are a party of 5th-level PCs. What we run into is the classic tactical situation every time: the barbarian and cleric tank, and the ranger (me) and wizard sit back and plink away or get in melee and are, well, making death saves. Another thing that happens is the wizard spell-shaping and just fireballing everything, unless he's in melee combat and trying to just kite and run.
Do I just try and get the DM to throw in more opposing mages and such? I wanna use my ranger kit but still have threats/challenges.
Another way to phrase my problem would be: how to engage more classes in combat?
