Best melee rogue build.
Hi there fellow Rift players.
I wanted to know what you think the best melee rogue build would be.
Began playing rift last week and rolled a rogue, and since i am a ranged dps in all the mmo's i've played, i wanted to go melee, the build i have right now (( Nightstalker, assassin, and riftstalker ( for the endurance buff )) but it doesnt feel right somehow.
If anyone could help me out with this, it would be tottaly awesome ;).

NB/Sin/RS is what I found to be a great melee spec too. I max out NB and the rest fills into Sin, RS is just for the port. Do you play PvE or PvP. I am PvE person but i read the NB/RS is great and also Sin/RS 21 into Sin gets u perma invis and u can up runspeed while invis.
in NB/Sin take the abilities that increase damage and buff up the NB stuff, after about 20 into NB u will be using 2 NB blade buffs and not the assassin ones unless u want life leech for solo. Either way for PvP I think the least u want from RS is the health regen for unspent points.
Not a lot of info here but some great builds to get an idea http://riftroguebuilds.com/
Forgot to mention the perma invis from Sin is great for solo/questing and the ranged incap from NB is pretty awesome too for solo and dungeons u can incap the mages and let tank pull all the melee mobs lol.
I've played NB since launch and it's y preferred main soul for PVE and PVP. It's a NB/RS build for the most part and I like it for it's damage, survival and burst. The burst comes from skills in RS that buff crit and damage after Phase Shifting.
Hmm i didnt think of using RS in that sense might make a 2nd role to try this out.
