    Default DPS build NB/Sin/Ranger

    I have been looking over the forums a lot and still trying to figure out a decent build to use. So I decided to try to make my own. I'm not really good with building specs and making my own macros etc but I gave it a shot anyway. Just seeing if it is even a viable spec.
    Maybe someone could help with the rotation or link a better build than this.

    Spec: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M....GARftsfqddR.V


    Opener (Not too sure what to use here)
    Seatlth --> Jagged Strike ---> Puncture ---> Final Blow

    Macro 1
    #show Backstab
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Puncture
    cast Backstab
    cast Savage Strike
    cast Serpent Strike (Not sure if it's useful or even needed in a macro)


    Finishing Macro
    #show Final Blow
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Final Blow
    cast Impale (Not sure if this is a viable finisher either. I have heard it isn't)



    If there is anything else you can help me, please give me as much criticism as you can. Or link a better build/rotation.

    Is this a build to use at all?

    A better opener would be:

    Stealth > Jagged Strike > Macro 1 > Macro 1 > Impale.


    Impale is a dot, so you want to get it on asap. Macro 1 is as follows:

    Serpent Strike
    Backstab
    Savage Strike

    Chances are, when you open up with jagged strike it will crit, when you hit macro 1 it will pull off serpent strike and then savage or backstab directly behind it, which will give you 5 cp's.

    Second rotation is normally

    Puncture > Macro 1 > Macro 1 > Macro 1 <finisher>

    The finisher can be whatever you like really - Baneful touch or final blow.

    Make sure you keep dots on the mob. If its a long fight, use Slip Away to re-apply jagged strike.

    I'm no expert and don't give advice often, but i'm sure that macro won't work properly.

    I'd also try putting serpent strike up the top of the list somewhere, probably after a skill that has a high chance to crit.

    Either way, definitely don't put savage strike NOT at the end of a macro since anything after that will not get a turn.

    *Edit to remove the double negative from the last line ...... umm......*

    Put savage strike at the end of the macro?

    Default Macro Noob

    Im a macro noob. What does the #show Backstab line do?

    Ive tried including backstab in a macro but get errors if im not properly behind my target and I get a dead action and have to press my button again.

    #show defines which icon will be visible on the taskbar.

    You could #show fell blades and have the actions be completely different if you wanted to.

    If you're getting errors just type suppressmacrofailures directly under the #show (skill name).

    Like

    #show blabla
    suppressmacrofailures

    That's normal for backstab to behave that way but it's good to have it in there, up the top of the macro preferably. If it hits, it hits and if it doesn't it doesn't and will go on to the next skill in your list.
