    Default Marksman Rogue Question

    I'm thinking about respecing from Ranger to Marksman rogue, but I was curious. Do the weapon enchantments from Assassin and Nightblade work with the bow too? Or are those only for melee attacks? I'm also only 31, so Im thinking Marksman/Ranger/ and either assassin or nightblade. Thoughts?

    the only thing you get from putting ANY points in marks is lower DPS

    To respond to your question without the ******tery, yes weapon enchants apply to ranged weapons. There is a great nb/mm or nb/ranger build on here somewhere.

    Well I would like suggestions. I'm enjoying ranged quite a bit, so I'd like to stick with that. Anyone suggest any sorta builds or anything? Mind you Im still solo and leveling, so the pet is nice. Suggestions are welcome.

    If you are enjoying Ranger I'd stick with it. Marksman, well it's not great atm.

    I am, but I need to resepc. Piercing shot, quick shot and crippeling shot is the most used, correct? is the blood raptor okay for tanking, or do I still need to use my piggy? What other souls do you all suggest? Marksman and assassin?

    Current optimum range specs are either

    51/15/0 Ranger/NB/Sin for bosses with aoes (top stop your pet getting 1shot)

    Higher DPS comes from

    33/18/15 Ranger/Marks/NB for bosses with minimal aoe and without a requirement to move much (soon as you move this spec dies due to requirement to relay pedestal)

    31/20/15 Ranger/Sin/NB for bosses with minimal aoe and a requirement to maintaint movement

    Rotation for all is pretty similar, keep cooldowns popped at all times, fiery strike @ 3 stacks all the time.


    There has also been speculation about a ranger/sabo combination but I personnaly havent done any testing upon this idea.
    Marksmanship as the mainsoul is generally a very low DPS build overtime

    Well Im only 31 at the moment and still leveling, so Ranger/Sin/NB ya think? Im kinda a newb to the game, so still learning heh. I like ranger, just wanna find a good level spec, and what kind of rotations and such.

    Oh for leveling go bladedancer/sin, by far our most efficient leveling souls.

    This one is pretty fun to play with. Pet will die easily in higher level runs.

    23MM/26NB/17SIN

    This will do the best single target burst dps. Or at least that is what i have found. Focus on keeping fiery spike going.

    Really? I didn't get into blade dancer that much... I think I might try Ranger/sin/NB. seems like it'd do well. I guess I don't know bladedancer/sin rotations or anything much..
