    Default Riftblade / Bladedancer / ??

    Is there any recommendation for final soul other than bard? For general solo pve and raid tanking? Should I even waste my time with 3rd soul? If I do take Bard, how deep do i go?

    Darkblade is the one that gets 15% to combo, 15% to finisher in the first two ranks of talents? And hellfire blades as a free damage buff.

    Or assassin, which gives you poison for free damage with no points in it, and +crit if you want to spend a few.

    If you take bard, 9 points are probably the deepest you'd want to go (+Health, +Armor buff, -enemies hit and crit). I'm planning on going only 7 in.

    Ranger is another option, and that is more like 8 points max (+Health, +Mitigation)

    Sabs got +% Dex, but nothing really beyond that.

    For tanking? Bard, definitely... By putting 4 points only in your Bard soul, you'll gain 8% health plus an endurance buff.

    Hmmmmm, I have Bard with only 1 point in the HP+ so far (at lvl 28).... Been fine switching out that last soul for whatever so far, till I get more points to blow. So far just having the RS/BD paired up have been enough to tank stuff.

    I'd say don't worry about it till later!

    Riftblade/bladedancer is by far the best levling spec as a rogue i have tried every spec possible as rogue and riftblade/bladedancer is just fun easy levling... And there is no downtime at all

    i would recommend this build http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...oRRGdz.hmMcd0b This is not a build i made its someone else and its Great ... If your low level you should focus on getting the points in riftblade first.... The skill that makes stuff easy is called Rift scavanger after u get that put points in bladedancer ... The points is assasin is obvious poison etc

    Ps. anyone saying its not the best build are wrong ... Bard makes u heal allot but u dont have the great dps as this build... im lvl 38 atm and i kill stuff so quickly now also using a macro

    Funny that no one actually noticed that riftblade is not a rogue soul.

    No, we ignored the obvious typo and answered the question as if it was typed correctly.

    Thanks for all the good responses everyone.

    Riftblade, lol. That guy must be new.... Look he doesn't even have a fancy signature.

    personally, i'm going 51riftstalker/7bard/8ranger (build listed in tanking thread here). works well enough for me.

    bard and ranger is for 15% end, 6% dmage reduction, and 2% crit/hit reduction

    and the auto attack boar is some free DPS (turn abilities off scine i CBF resummoning him so much)

    Street Smarts is more important than an endurance buff that another dedicated bard will give you a better version of.

    The autoattack dps of the boar will be much less then popping sidesteps with a 100% riposte on dodge proc from Bladedancer. Especially in AoE tanking situations. The boar nets you 0 threat as well.

    I actually think for leveling Nightblade/Riftstalker/Whatever is your best bet. Rift Scavenger in the RS tree means zero downtime.

    At 25 something like this....
