    Cool Teleporting Sniper.

    Alright, hello everyone.
    I'm fairly new to Rift, been playing for 2 beta phases, and i decided that the class i played wasn't for me.
    (I still have experiece with MMO:s though, played WoW for 5 years, but finally gave up on them, couldn't take their ******** anymore..)
    so i checked up on diffrent classes and videos and such, and i noticed something i'd very much would like to try out.
    It's from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KL4rV6SDry0

    They are mentioning a teleporting sniper, which in my opinion sounds awesome ^^

    Can anyone tell me what class/spec i must choose in order to achieve this?

    Thanks.

    it's riftstalker and marksman. and it could happen, but i think the survivability of the build may outweigh its deadliness.
    Success = survivability / time.
    Survivability = (health + mitigation + heals) / dps done to tank
    Time = target's total health / group dps

    It's not a damage meters fault you can't hit a certain dps and others similar to you can, it's the fault of your bad gear, bad spec, or bad rotation. So stop getting mad at the meters and invest some time into not being bad.

    It's probably not viable at all, the dps loss is just too high. With unneeded points in Riftstalker.
    But to give you an example build anyways:

    Something like this ? - 26 Riftstalker/ 13 Nightblade / 27 Marksman.

    Has some teleporting but I'd mainly use them for the extra survivability after a planar shift.

    I am seeing great potential for amazing PVP builds

    Why no rapid extraction? that is like one of the single best feats in the marksman tree. That rift barrier is also awesome, so I don't know why you would skip that. Take another look here:

    Flag runner extraordinaire. Especially with memory capture/flashback. Drop your memcap outside the base, run in in guardian phase. grab flag, flashback, blink, on the double, blink, blink. on the double. gl catching that.

    Like i said it was just an example build, i have no knowledge with Marksmans or Riftstalkers.

    On the other side, might be viable in pvp indeed. With the changes you have made.

So many ridiculous applications.

    I'll be trying something similar to this with the same concept of the burst/dps of MM and the mobility/defenses of RS. If this doesn't work out then I'll probably try implementing the pvp soul with MM and finding another soul to pair with those two, maybe sin or NB for stealth.

    Doesn't matter what you see, or into it what you read, you can do it your own way, if it's done just how I say.

    Nightblade looks promising for their escapes as well.
    I'm a little worried about the energy costs for MM and RS. Least Nightblade has their 70% Sprint 15 sec duration ability, No cost except the 30sec exhaustion. (actually no it's Blade dancer) nvm.
