    Default Marksman PvP builds

    Didn't see any threads in recent history for this so here's my ideas:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...RqdAudR.Vuo.0V
    Differences:
    51 in MM for sniper's ped plus Assassin for crit + stealth

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...RqzAudk.Vuo.Vc
    Loses sniper's ped, gains another 6% damage reduction + 15% AP all the time.


    Anyone with other ideas for builds, critique for these, etc? Marksman being primary for all conversation (or maaybe ranger?).

    who u going to kill with 150 dmg? my sin auto attack does more than that. When my sab ran into a MM I laugh at him b/c it didnt even feel like he was attacking me.

    Its funny I was using my MM build during a Codex match and I found myself going after another MM, and it was rediculous. He's hitting me, I'm after him and nothing (I could just piture him laughing because that's the same thing I was doing) I switched to my sin build at that time and though they have problems as well, nothing like a MM.

    Man I wish they were better.

    I actually killed a sabo in codex earlier today. I guess maybe he sucked or something, but it was 1v1 for sure. Versus other ranged it's just a who-kills-who first so I stand still and fire off my best shots.

    This is my build for pvp and i find it does pretty well, in the 40s i was usually top 5 in dps. I'd say I'm more support in the sense that I have some difficulty soloing other people, but i find i can usually kite pretty well and if i use CDs i can kill np.

    Assn is really nice bc it gives additional stuns while i do dmg; i also find that my aoes are super nice at capture points where i spam em while hiding in back. I have plenty fun stealthing behind healers, messing with them, then sprinting away if too many target me. If u can kite well MM isn't hard to play.

    I wonder how useful Ranger's piercing shot would be. I notice a distinct drop in damage (~30%) vs. Plate.

    What method are you using to kite? Do you steer with the keyboard and shoot with the mouse? Vice-versa? Are you using programmable keyboard/mouse? How much time do you spend looking behind you? Do you use strafe? Are you able to circle strafe in Rift? I know kiting is simple as an idea but it can be complex in its methods. Thanks

    Here is my build:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...R.0VMcx0b.xx0z

    I'm geared out in T2 gear and I do have a 36.0 DPS bow so it does make a difference. I'm almost always top 3 DPS and sometimes I pull #1 DPS and that includes a high number of killing blows.

    Just play smart, don't sit there and shoot warriors all day. Use your cooldowns too. Hit and Run combined with Controlled Fire will take someone down pretty fast using Empowered Shot and Deadeye Shot. Don't forget to spam barbed shot on people as well. Infiltrator is a nice dmg boost.
