    Default Newbie Rate My Spec: AS/RS/NB

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...b0d.Ecxh.V0t0M

    I'm only lvl 20, just playing around with a class builder, but this looks viable to me, eager to hear what more experienced players have to say

    No Silent Footsteps, No Slip Away? And what is this build going to be used for? I see many flaws in it for certain play styles.

    You are only level 20, so theres plenty of time to test what works for you or not.

    The three class combination you picked is fine, but in each one you are missing the core concepts.

    Asn: You have 32 points in Asn without slip away; get it. You do not need poison potency as asn damage comes mainly from bleed, unless you are a sabo. More bleed abilities, less poison. Either focus on savage strike or backstab; most prefer backstab.

    RS: concentrate on either RS as a defense or offense support. If offense concentrate on the synergies with shifting. I really cant see whats going on with this, as it is just few points here and there. Stalker stance is great for offense.

    NB: You have a ranged snare... main use is for pvp, but I can't see this build being for PVP as you don't have foul play, blinding powder, slip away, silent footsteps, etc.

    Your efforts are appreciated that you try to build something yourself rather than asking whats the best build, but lets start small. Show us your existing build, and we can help you improve it.

    Agree with above. Also knowing what type of gameplay you will be using this build for is key. Like he said above me, you are missing key concepts for pvp.

    ok, thanks for the feedback - i really appreciate it

    i want to pvp, thought RF would increase my survivability, and NB would increase my attack power while giving my a ranged snare.

    i understand about getting stuns for pvp

    i wasnt sure how good slient footsteps is, but i am assuming it is necessary for pvp?

    ok so poison isnt all that great, i removed that

    i got shadow assault now for RF, to compliment back stab, but i can't work my way up to deathe from shadows w/o giving up my ranged snare in NB - do i need twilight force and improved twilight force?

    here is where i am at, after your feedback:

    Silent footsteps is necessary if you want to actually sneak up on anyone that is not 10 levels lower than you.

    You don't need twilight force since as Asn you get a melee snare, and you can close the gap easily between you and your target with shadow assault, shift, warp.

    Try your character in combat first, you'll learn much more there than here.

    Twilight force works best if you are looking for a ranged dps build. Its the best snare trade off in you dont invest in ranger. Other then that like the above said there is better snares since you will easily be in melee range with the RS ports. really fun when a MM thinks he got away. Not very fun when i think my mm has got away.
