    Default Post patch PVP builds....what are you having moderate success with?

    Just curious what everyone is finding viable for PVP post patch. Gonna run some builds and attempt to parse, what is working well in warfronts / open world thus far?

    I find that the Assassin build with Advanced Stealth works really well for going into Stealth and running away from players so they cant kill you, provided they arent higher level and/or weren't looking at the monitor at the time you Stealthed,

    The Warriors just get to say, "ooohlookiehere! I'll take some more Damage here, some improved survivability here, and some extra aoe-CC and a few stuns here. Hell, lets throw in a charge and some Burst-AoE damage while we're at it. Maybe a self-heal too. Sounds good!"
    That's the problem.

    That's because, stupidly, they are the ONLY rogue calling that has any healing mitigation to combat the overly powerful heals that are available in this game. Frankly I wish I didn't have to put 32 freaking points into NB just to have a half-reliable way to have a chance of killing any class with heals. Even with -50% healing, Clerics are still generally able to heal for more than I can damage for a fairly long time. I find that to be absolutely ridiculous.
    If you don't take yourself to 32 in NB, you are severely limiting who you can successfully attack in PvP.

    Melee dps souls are still pretty worthless.

    NB is the same and somewhat viable thanks to the decent damage output, range, utility and defensive cooldowns.

    Saboteur is pretty much the same, you weren't the main killer before and you aren't one now, stick to spamming bombs and assisting.

    Bard is still the same bullrush fodder, now with less heals.

    Moderate? I'm having exceptional success with my NB builds.

    32NB/22SIN/12INF and
    32NB/17RS/17SIN

    With the change to the Infiltrator soul, the former can put some serious hurt on someone when needed, while the latter has the mobility that's needed in certain wfs/open world situations.

    I have been a 51NB + rift all along and have done pretty well. Living flame is great to use in conjunction with our shields when in packs. There weren't any changes to NB so I am happy.
