This team build is a complete alternative for the Rangers who want to do The Deep, but have no way to do so otherwise, and it provides adequate offense and defense(which Rangers "lack") to do the mission. It uses spirits to shift the armor difference into the Ranger's favor, then stack armor via sentry's insignia and blocking stances (one of which gives more elemental armor).
