    Default For the 44 Sab / 20 Sin / 2 pts left, why spend them in 3rd soul?

    2 pts in ranger or NB seems limited when you could leave the last soul at 0 and use RS or Ranger or Inf as the case needs?

    Does 2 pts in ranger or NB make that much of a difference between 0 pts when given the versatility?

    You could put the extra 2 into sin for Improved stealth or a little longer ranged bombing...

    Because most people don't know if you don't spend any points into a soul you can change it any time you want..

    considering that 44 sab/20 sin is a pve dps spec,

    i'd say 2% crit or 6% combo generator damage + fiery spike > shadow shift/break free/62 AP buff/everything else

    Eh, 2% crit from rng is nice

    2 points MM.

    The 30% increased mobility finisher when you need it is too much to pass up in my opinion.

    def mm or ranger, they make charges use your bow/gun to do the dmg instead of your daggers which will give you a substantial dps boost. this is the case even while in melee range on large bosses (all dragons) as the melee and ranged range is the same so the game always says you are at range and uses your bow for your charge dmg.

    as nice as a 0 point ability is, none of them are worth using 99.9% of the time. the 50% dodge can be useful againts some melee classes... not many, and the break free has little to no use now that you become cc immune near instantly in warfronts.

    PvP or PvE? That makes a huge difference.

    For PvE, its NB, RS, or Ranger for sure (as you don't need imp stealth, or any sort of "get away")

    For PvP, it doesn't really matter, because its one big clusterfk at the moment.

    ^^^^ It's the reason I do it. Still I guess you could go 22 Sin and 0 in ranger but I like my 2% crit atm.

    In PvE, go ranger. You get the crit and the ranged auto attacks. Make a macro to have your auto attacks start with your charges and you will see a dps increase. If you do not have a ranged soul, you will not auto attack with your gun/bow. Crit is better than the MM crap you get. You will be using detonate, so don't bother with MM.

    Yes you would still auto attack with zero point in Ranger or Marksman. I tested this extensively both before and after 1.2. If you want the option to switch souls then by all means don't put any pts into Ranger. If you want the extra 2% crit then put them in.

    Why do you need to swap souls in PvP?
    Free music! It's legal!
