    Default Viable bladedancer pvp build?

    Does anyone perhaps have a link? Finding it hard to not be stunned into oblivion with the BD stun break at 44 points.

    use the PVP soul.

    put 12 points into defense;
    25% reduced AoE damage
    50% damage reduction for 4 seconds when stunned or rooted
    -2 seconds stun duration

    With patch 1.1, the break free skill is on a 2 minutes cooldown, which is alright unspecced. Speccing gives you a 1 minute cooldown i think. (requires rank3 prestige though)

    Pure bladedancer is not a lot of damage though, except for dancing steel. Bladedancer is only strong when you are being attacked. Currently, you are forced to also spec nightblade or assassin to boost your damage.
    personally, i use this build:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...VuoRkhdz.V0xoo
    but my build will eventually be this:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...oz.EidAzsRohdz
    or this
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...oz.EidAzsRohdz

    they use different styles of play, but can both deal good amount of damage. But before i get to the last 2 builds, it'll be a month or so. Im not even Prestige 2 yet.

    Actually I may have misspoken I have heavy bladedancer/assassin with some riftstalker mixed in for good measure. Its great for mobs but gets instantly mashed by warriors, well clerics too...and mages.

    Ok well pretty much every class out damages/survives my poor little rogue.

    Going to untangle is a waste. Slip away is the same cooldown (ticks off roots/snares) as untangle and puts you immune to damage and back into steath/another opener and another 15%dmg/reduced damage taken for 10 seconds.

    Untangle is a waste unless its was like a 30 second cooldown.

    Advanced flanked and Physical Trauma will probably be switched when I hit 50 due to not having impale atm

    Amenity you sir are a scholar and a gentleman, how could I forget slip away. I even had it for a assassin build, I guess I just got caught up in bladedancer build.

    The whole issue for me is that you can't do a build where either 44+ points either in the blade dancer tree or the assassin tree and be completely viable.

    Here is a shell of a 44 point blade dancer build:

    That's the best I can come up with if you wanted to include untangle
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...oz.xidAusRRhdz

    But you'd lose all your bleeds/stronger openers and slip away for another cooldown/untangle and pbaoe blind and that cooldown is worthless because I'm typically exhausted from sprint/side steps/blade tempo already.
