    Default PVP Video Fun! Assassin/Saboteur/Ranger Rogue! Level 23!

    I tried pvping with a variety of different combos of souls. I have yet to find the perfect combination (Any suggestions are welcomed!). I really enjoy playing a melee rogue, but I miss the burst damage we see so prevalent in other games. I made this video for fun just to show that pvp can be fun when your not getting steamrolled lol. I have other videos that I am making at max level, not done yet, but soon...hopefully...

    Truth is, I found I hit harder with my other builds, but felt melee was slightly lacking compared to the others. From reading other threads here, I realize I am not alone in this thought. I refuse to give up my dream of a powerful hitting burst melee rogue! Please Trion!

    Also, I am not the best player in the world, but I am finding my own path, which if the soul systems represents anything, is what Trion is hoping players do!

    **Before you ask, video is sped up to match the music**

    While the video is nice, most of your success was when 3-4 people were around vs 1 of theirs!

    True, you're only level 23, which makes the Codex a pain. And being an assassin in general is a pain, but you should try to showcase more 1v1 1v2 pwnage!

    I'd recommend dropping some points into ranger and quickshot / improved quickshot. Really helps for after you doing your first engage; you can then revert to ranged blasting, and it actually does tons of damage with few points into ranger!

    Part of being a Rogue is knowing when to strike.

    But any rogue can do that, or any class even :P

    Part of being a rogue to me is stabbing someone in the back, killing them unassisted, and walking away from the battle with another notch on the belt!

    I watched this and thought, what are you doing?

    Maybe its because you are only lvl 23, but you want burst right? I played as pure an assassin as you could @27

    1.8 speed daggers, get some.
    Saboteur while its hilarious to do the big bomb its really pretty slow damage. The whole video and you never threw down Adhesive bomb?
    Why are you wasting time with expose weakness? I LOL'd
    Baneful touch as a finisher? Stop stop stop, you can Crit for 700 with Final Blow
    Serious misuse of blinding powder dont try to use it as an interupt unless you are desperate.
    Puncture Use it more
    Poison Malace should always be on cooldown!

    thats about it I guess.
    Do that and you'll get your burst damage you want.
    Looking forward to some lvl 27 vids

    The title is pvp for fun as a rogue but I'd guess we are seeing everyone's version of what rogue fun is..

    Nice video you did have fun!

    Who said Rift has no flying!?

    some constructive criticism:
    • use your mouse to turn instead of your keyboard. trust me this will make your gameplay significantly better
    • some small editing goes a long way, if you can his would help out a lot.
    • like above posters, more 1v1 or 1v2.
    Otherwise the video was fun to watch, its always nice to see rogue gameplay.

    Thank you for all the pointers. I took this video footage at 23, but had since gotten to the max level and switched builds to ranger. Honestly, I wish I had more time to experiment, but I am happy to see so many useful tips and plan on using them on the next beta. Thanks again!

    Exactly, I mean, I want tips to refine the process, but honestly, Trion game us all this freedom to help find our own paths to playing. And what you said, is the exact heart of that sentiment, so thank you!

    Hey, I tried fighting one on one with one guy and a ranger interrupted, luckily a healer got me and I ended up killing them both (bard death unrecorded) but still! Hey man, I tried, not like I can ask people, "Hey would you mind?! I am 1vs1-ing here!!" lol
