very helpful posts. Seems to be a little disagreement about Totems?

Which would work better with a Barbarian, Crusader or Warblade?

Also, how beneficial would the sneak attack feature of the rogue or the skirmish ability of the scout be? They both seem to be strong skill users, which would be better?

Is Ranger just for the skills, or is there some other benefit to putting a couple of levels into it?
