    Default Pure Builds Viable?

    I was just wondering if pure class builds were viable? Coming from a WoW background, i've never spent all my points in one tree but looking at the Rift trees, alot of them looked viable even optimal as pure builds without dipping into another calling. Thanks all!

    You'll still get 15 points to play with at 50 even with a pure build. They're doing a lot to make pure builds viable right now (some think too much), so if it's not viable now, I'd bet it will be soon.

    Every patch more and more souls pretty much are max or nothing.

    The viability of pure builds depends on the callings themselves. From a rogue standpoint, the Assassin soul doesn't seem to be worth the 51 points whereas the Nightblade soul could seems like it could be worth it.

    For some of them, I'd agree. There are still several mix-and-match warrior builds that are better than what you could get from maxing one, although if these notes are right about riftstalkers, I'll definitely be rolling as 51/8/7 RS/BD/R for tanking. Warden is pretty much all-or-nothing as well right now.

    I'd have to say this depends largely on your role and situation.

    Bard for example.
    A pure 51 build seems only good for raid/epic groups.
    Solo PvE, Solo PvP or group PvP, 51 points seems a waste.

    Luckily for us, we can easily switch between 4 pre-made builds based on our situation to make us that much more useful depending on the environment you're going to be in.
