    Default aoe build?

    Anyone have a build just for pure aoe dps ive tried with

    nb/assassin/ranger 43/17/6 with weapon flare and fiery chains

    also with a ranger build just for rain of arrows

    none of which can keep up with or even close to a mage/war sometimes im doing a bit more then a tank. Is sab aoe still good after the patch, that one i havent tried yet.

    The only 2 souls that I am aware of with good AE potential is sab and BD. problem with BD is that most of there abilities require dodging, which is quite useless in group settings, making sab most likely the most effective ae soul. Others I am sure can confirm or refute this.

    So would you say a full 51pts in sab, and just spam booby trap?

    I just use a 51 pt NB build, more then good enough.

    I am actually in the process of developing my own aoe build, and it will take a while because i have not dabbled in that much before lol.

    Don't underestimate Ranger when looking for an AE build. Rain of Arrow is very good AE dps, and Trick Shot is pretty surprising as well. Trick Shot also can pick up extra combo points very fast.

    Open with a Trick Shot, followed by Rain of Arrows, fire another Trick Shot while Rain is finishing its CD, Rain again, and depending on combo points you can fire off Concussive Blast for a pretty sizable chunk of damage.

    This particular rotation would only require 22 points spent in Ranger, so could easily be mixed with another soul or 2 for some added versatility in your AEing.

    Honestly, the only Rogue builds I've seen with decent AOE were deep Saboteur with points in Ranger, and deep Ranger with points in Saboteur. Every other AOE build I've seen, tried, or even heard about is garbage, though I could burst AOE really well for about 6 seconds (out of every 60) with full Nightblade.

    The highest aoe dps i can do seems to be with booby trap, what souls would help in increasing the damage with it as i dont think it can crit.
