D&D Next: Wood Elf Ranger Pre-Gen

Wood elves are pretty similar to high elves, however, I believe the high elf wizard gets a +1 to hit with magical attacks and instead I gave the wood elf a bump to damage with the longbow (from 1d8 to 1d10).  Since the player was very inspired by the WoW Hunter, I kind of exchanged a second Theme (per Mearls' suggestion this week) with a variation on Channel Divinity from the dwarf cleric.

I think everyone should wait until WotC reveal the other character classes they're working on. According to DnD Insider this will include Rangers and Paladins.
