    Default Marksman?

    I played a warrior in beta 4 which i enjoyed quite a bit, but just for beta 5 I want to try something new. I love ranger classes in other games so I want to give it a try here.

    The only combos I can think of are Marksman/Ranger. I'm not sure what works or what puts out high DPS.

    Help would be awesome.

    This is a good pvp spec, preferably ganking but it will do good in group pvp too. you will have to change quite a bit for a good pve build.

    Do marksmen get to use guns at all? if so when? the class summary on the website shows them with a rifle, but all videos and things i seen of gameplay has them with bows. i want a boomstick!

    Marksmen can use a gun or bow, and can use them at level 1.

    The reason a lot of people were using bows during the beta is because the instances were dropping blue bows. Guns seem to be rather rare as a drop.

    I am looking for PvP mostly, but I would like to be able to PvE (instances, other things). Why is assassin thrown in?

    you get +5% crit from the first tier of points, u also get a poison (that can be applied to range weps) and have a 20% chance to make target 5% easier to crit (aks 10% more crit from assassin tree) and then of course my favorite part is unlimited stealth lol

    also Cruel Malice makes you do more damage after you crit.

    I changed some things for this PvP build. I have no idea what to make for PvE though. I'm thinking maining Ranger but I don't realy know.

    http://rift.zam.com/cluster/stc.pl?t...Azdo.0VMft0boz that is the PvP build

    ALSO: what do you do with the assassin melee skills? My friend says to switch to a 2-Hander.

    assassin/marksman/ranger has worked great for me.. or you can swap assassin for nightblade for some energy regen

    this is what I currently have
