I'm surprised you reached level 50 and are still asking a question like this. Nonetheless, I have maxed all 3 classes (and chose to remain a ranger). Even as a ranger, my rotation is only slightly changed Here's my rotation (the + means it's boosted):

Starter
Hammer Shot(+) - Phoenix(+) Starter for higher HP NPC's) This kills most lower level NPC's outright

Standard Rotation (allows quite a bit of mobility especially if I drop the last set)
Bola Arrow - Rapid Shot(+)
Barbed Arrow - Eagle Shot(+)
Double Shot(+)
Strong Bow - Spiral Arrow (when I was hawkeye I used Triple Arrow Before Spiral Arrow

For Bosses I use:
Sniper, Raven Flight, Phoenix Arrow (+) (If someone's drawing their aggro, otherwise I reverse this order to take advantage of Phoenix Arrow's bonus above 14m), Falcon Arrow (+), Fine Line SIght (+), Standard Rotation as above,

I continue the standard rotation mixing in Fine Line SIght, Falcon Arrow, Phoenix Arrow and Raven Flight as required (note bosses seem to be effected by raven flight, but it's hard to tell as your crits don't hurt more, but you should be criting more often)

Finally as the boss starts doing AOE attacks, I drop Strong Bow and Spiral Arrow as they freeze me in place and I want to be able to move (true barbed arrow freezes you too, but it's a very fast attack), I save my bigger damage attacks for after the AOE attack.

Finally some other notes:

Mine trap is as good as the mages freeze attack, though others can't see it as well and could miss it
Triple Arrow should be boosted as using it after strong bow makes it hit really hard
Sniper is very good, but the nerf to mobility really hurts it, making it more situational.
Always have Eagle Eyes Active

AGI is god for us More critical hits and More evasion - For PvE I would favor DEX over CON, however for PvP I reverse that order. STR is good as it boosts normal and Crit Damage - but Critical Hits should be the majority of our attacks, so DEX works a bit better. Surprisingly WIL is also good for us as Mana for every advanced class except Bounty Hunter is always critical in long fights.

I'm sure I'm not an expert, but that's what works for me - would love to hear other's setups.

This is why we need damage meters because at this stage no one really knows what the optimal rotation is.
