    Default Nightblade / Assassin / Bladedancer Rotation Anyone?

    Heres the spec i used after looking at a few other posts about best dps atm.

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

    I've been sab ever since i started playing but seeing how they nerfed it to hell i need a new spec. So anyone have a rotation that they would like to tell me for this?

    Just MHO I would drop BD all together. Pump up the spec to 46 / 20.

    For my money I like 44 NB / 22 SIN for group pvp, going 22 sin gives you crit buffs, improved perma stealth and stun locking options.

    General opening rotation is :

    Dark malady stealth opener
    Dusk strike
    Fieryspike
    if the target near death try and finish it w/blazing strike otherwise boost next round of dmg w/scourge of darkness

    Remember while you do have ranged options you always do more dmg in melee, save your ranged stuff for finishing off a kiter or when you're closing the gap.

    I've tried out various specs and this one came out on top by quite a big margin.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...Rcxof0dbR.V0xM

    Rotation:
    Jagged Strike > Puncture > Impale > BSx5 > Baneful Touch > BSx5 > Final Blow. By this time you will be all buffed up, so you pop Blade Tempo and Poison Malice then Slip Away > Jagged Strike > Puncture > Impale.

    After that its just keeping your Impale, Baneful, and Puncture up and using BS/Final Blow as fillers. Atm, I'm parsing at 675+ dps on a target dummy self buffed with mostly T1 and a couple T2 pieces.

    Huh, does Dauntless strike not stack with the Assassin poison?
