Hit and run
Ranger Attack 1

Target: One creature

Hit: 1[W] + Strength modifier damage.

Increase damage to 2[W] + Strength modifier at 21st level.

Effect: If you move in the same turn after this attack, leaving the first square adjacent to the target does not provoke an opportunity attack from the target.[PH:105]

Hit and Run is an At-Will power available to rangers at 1st level.

It is considered a poor choice for rangers, as most melee-based rangers generally want to be close to the enemy rather than running away for the purpose of unloading a powerful series of attacks.[1]
