    Default Strong Range Build + Rotation hints (660 DPS)

    Build: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...0b.EGcfuekskVz

    Macro: Piercing Shot, Quick Shot

    Opening: Build up 3 stacks of Fiery Spike, Splinter Shot, Headshot

    Rotation:
    1) Dont waste CPs (4 CP -> Splintershot == bad,5 CP -> Fiery Spike == bad)
    1) Always use Fiery Spike as late as possible
    2) Use Splinter Shot on CD! This is 'not' easy and requires some practice
    3) Fill CPs with the macro
    4) Use Headshot as finisher
    5) I tried to use Shadow fire in my rotation but then its even harder to maintain Fiery Spike and use Splinter Shot on CD, so i dont use it.

    Parse:

    we get it, pets are awesome, nothing new here or to see here... but most rogues know if they are going to have a pet they might as well melee (both the nb and bd builds pull way over 660dps) so why bother? WE WANT MARKSMAN TO BE VIABLE AND PULL 660DPS!!!
    Useful Rogue guides since I don't want to answer 50 billion questions anymore:
    Marksman, Ranger, Nightblade, Blink'Blade, Asstalker, Assdancer, and finally The Hoko Spec™

    Your parse in in German I cant make it out.
    Dream for 1.3:
    *Crafters Rejoice - We've reduced all deposits when listing your wares on the Auctioneer by 75%. This only applies to player made items.
    *Quest Journal: Increased in size from 25 to 50. Also, guild quests, world event quests and crafting quests no longer contribute to your quest count. No more pesky messages!
    *New Portal System: All death platforms can now be used as portals. Each platform has a short quest that must be completed to unlock it's potential. Travel expenses have been reduced and now cost by the distance traveled and not the distance from your home city.

    Sadly, I have to agree with this guy. Once the pet dies, the Rogues DPS output just doesn't cut it.

    Also, when I tried a ranger build it seemed that every time I tried to put fiery spike or splinter shot in the rotation, my overall DPS went lower.

    shadow>splinter also going into nightblade would probably be better, if not just for blazing fury
