    Default Rogue: ranged DPS (which one)?

    So ok, we all know that Trion gutted the rogue class with the ranged classes doing as much damage as throwing rocks.
    But i've always like playing a ranged DPS (non-mage) class.
    Of the three, Marksman, Ranger, Saboteur, which would best be used in PvP?

    I think ranger is best for pvp if ur pet can stay alive

    edit: low lvl pvp mm seems to work good

    Up to around the 30's, all 3 are fun and viable.

    After that it get's a bit ugly, but a skilled player can still do well. There isn't any macro mashing insta win stuff happening, you have to be able to move very well, be very aware of what is going on around you, know when to run away, and play with finesse. Lack of burst means you can't really go toe to toe with anything, so be comfortable with a support role until Trion gives us a bit more dps.

    Or u can do what I do ....
    make a sab and just wander in the back ground and blow up all the mages(FotM)
    under lvl 25 I can kill most mages with 5 shraptnel charges. But im also 29. Mages lvl 26-29 5 charges eat up about 70% of their HP. So pick on some who is getting atk'd

    @50 with a premade rolling , MM/NB is really useful and good spec to roll.
    Can apply healing debuff to up to 8 players , and has some really good burst during his CDs

    I was destroying in the 19 bracket as ranger/mm.

    After I finally got all the cheevo's was pulling games with 45+ kills 20odd KB and 1-2 deaths. Averaging around 3-4 carrier kills and being one if not the top dmg done person. Working on the Codex atm and i'm still strong against same level (one or two higher) but anything else is game over. Only 20, so I'm hoping it'll be like 19 once I level up so more I'll pull my weight more often.

    I do have a second role spec'd into Sab for those moments I just wanna blow up a healer/mage.

    I fairly surek NightBlade is winner in the highest ranged DPS contest.

    I reworked my ranger to use NB attacks and hes killing faster.

    Im not talking about pet damage. Just the ranged damage.
    Ive tried a lot of combos of ranger/assassin/marksman/NB and and none of them using the ranged weapon attacks seems to match up to the NM using the 20 meter melee weapon attacks with ranged weapon for the autofire.


    Please explain the ranger attacks that do more damage.
