    Lightbulb Theoretical Build BladeDancer/NightBlade/Assassin

    Just posting a theoretical build: 23BladeDancer/22NightBlade/21Assassin

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...cx0bo.V0tRhoMM

    Please, share any thoughts or fixes to the build.

    The main idea behind this build is that the blade dancer soul adds combo points and to be used on finishers which in turn return a small amount of energy back. While this is happening the assassin and night blade souls will be applying DoTs and damage boosters.

    Possible rotation might be: Expose weakness -> Puncture -> Keen Strike -> Precision strike -> Dauntless Strike -> Dusk Strike -> Savage Strike -> Keen Strike -> Quick Strike -> Deadly Strike -> repeat

    Using Poison malice and Ebon Fury whenever either is up and Blade Tempo when avaliable. Use Hellfire blades and Lethal poison (or smoldering blades) as the enchantments.

    Step up the macros:
    cast Precision Strike
    cast Quick Strike
    cast Keen Strike
    cast Twilight Force
    cast Fiery Spike

    and

    cast Puncture
    cast Savage Strike
    cast Twilight Force
    cast Fiery Spike

    If you go out of range the fiery spike will kick in but you will want to use Flash of Steel to get back in as soon as possible. Also, if Dauntless strike is still up when the rotation gets to it again use Compound Attack for multiple mobs or Deadly Strike for single.

    Edit: this is a build for groups and longer fights, and in no way is this build for tanking.
    Edit again: Posted a slightly off build.

    tbh to spread out. you miss out vivacity wich is 10% dmg on all bd skills and 20 energy max wich is great for opening. you miss out blade hustle wich is basicly your cd's last longer and you miss out a good cd in bd soul.

    why take foul play in assasin soul ? why improved savage striek when you only use it 1 time every 2 rotations ? why even use it in the first place instead of just another keen strike ?

    why points in ebon fury ? just use fiery if out of range.

    why puncture ? don't have enough energy problems yet ? the bleed will not make much difference its just another attack giving 2 cp's not that important.

    why flame thrust ? if your going for melee anyway ?

    see you try to be to much of everything and you'll end up being less in everything you do.

    Made some changes
    Ebon fury is for Dusk Strike to Deadly strike while having a non cd 2combo point move. Why wouldn't you want it?
    Removed the savage strike increase, was using it to help proc serrated blades and cruel vengeance with it's 10% increase to crit.
    Blade Hustle overall would not be as beneficial as some of the other skills which require points to reach up to.

    Thanks for the suggestions, the idea is also that maybe instead of being so focused on one thing we should do what our calling was designed for and spread out more.
