    Default Beta 5 Rogue Test!

    I am going to take a Rogue to lvl 27 in Beta 5. Tested a little bit in this arctype in the other betas but never got the feeling for it.

    Here is what I was thinking: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14031925/rif...2218,5_2219,5_

    That of course would be a final build to lvl 50.

    And whats that for? PVE , PVP, both?

    It is a good build, looks like the typical Rogue. Much more typical then lets say mixing assassin with nightblade or riftstalker...

    Only bad thing from a PvP point of view is that you got no Anti-CC and lacks an healing debuff.

    This would be pure DPS old fashioned Rogue. No healing deduff but it has Stuns and silences. Has anyone tested Blinding Powder?

    It CC your target for 10sec, any damage will free the victim

    what silence were you talking about btw? A single stun isnt going to let you kill Healers, especially when most pvpin healing clerics will run around with anti-ccs.

    i can tell you what u should try out .. Ranger as a main soul then marksman and saboteur. i had a chance to try this in beta 4 and gotta say i loved it .. marksmans and rangers damage is good and plus u get a pet which takes the aggro off yourself even in pvp, because it switches your enemys target over to pet. and saboteur has some reeeeealy awesome crowdcontroll abilities and really helps u alot plus very nice AOE skills.

    but heres some specks for you to try out.

    DPS rouge:
    Ranger
    marksman
    saboteur
    and later on infiltrator (pvp soul)

    Sneaky Rouge
    Ranger
    marksman
    assassin
    and later on switch marksman or ranger for infiltrator

    Porting Rouge
    ranger
    assasin
    riftstalker
    later on replace assasin for infiltrator

    well theres tons of combos to try out but i'd prefare these 3 combinations + all do good damage aswell.

    Weapon Barrage...This is a build for lvl 50. Lower levels I will have to see how well it works with the poisons.

    Already did this once. I am not a archer ranged type player, it is op however. Detonate with marksman is OP!

    just noticed that that soul planner site... is using old data... for at least the Warrior Riftblade soul... makes me wonder if other things in it are outdated too

    It would make more sense to take a rogue to 30 in beta 5

    Indeed. Why stop 3 levels shy of the max?

    Ranger is the easiest to level, that's all I'll say.

    If your truely interested in the rogue class, you should prob be testing melee rogues and providing feeding instead of just rolling marks/rangers and ganking in black garden all day

    We all know the ranged rogue souls are imbalanced right now, the melee souls are in trouble and need constructive feedback. Serious problems like assassin soul being used to turn 0 point souls into overpowered classes, like 27 Sin/0 Ranger/0 Marks...

    Assassin has far too much passive bonuses, its actually possible to spend 31 points all the way to the "vanish" skill without spending a single point in melee attacks and then grabbing any ranged soul for a basic ranged builder and finisher and destroying everything. Needs to be addressed, Assassin is a melee soul but provides the biggest dps boost of all souls including ranged??

    My planned build for release: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14031925/rif...2218,4_2219,5_

    Only diff in bladedancer build, take one point out of that initial dodge talent and put it in the guaranteed 4 sec stun. And my assassin build just swapped the Poison Potency for Serrated Blades.

    Not really sure which will have more dps, Poison Potency for Serrated, but my "guess" is Serrated Blades

    edit: meh, my final build http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14031925/rif...2218,3_2219,5_ As you can tell, not going for pvp

    i like the way this looks o.O
    http://rift-planner.com/?archetype=2...nts=0&lang=eng

    Nightstalkers look so cool with the elmenetal damage / get the passive buffs from assasin and the free pet from ranger.
    what you guys think?
