    Default INF soul below par?

    Is the INF soul less prefered(As your secondary soul)? Lately, I seen lots of NB, BD, ***** soul applied in builds...

    Your opinion.

    given that the mage PVP soul gives you 3/6/9/12/15% passive damage increase with first 5 points spent, which is what my 50 is, to me infiltrator seems subpar at least at lower levels/ranks.

    At the upper levels, at least half of the abilities are bugged. Inf is EXTREMELY sub-par.

    I was using 51 sin/ 15 bd/0 inf after the patch came out. And its solid. Great burst and decent survivablity. But now that I'm r4, I use 51 sin/15 inf/0 ranger. Better overall. The inf soul has some awesome stuff in it. I really think the best skill it has is the rank 4 stacking damage buff. It lets you do pretty insane damage. I believe its called Focused Intent.

    That damage doesn't add up to near as much as BD using DD.

    Well I like to use 51 sin and 51 sin/15 bd doesnt do as much for me. Might be because of equipment but I demolish people with 15 inf.

    PTI and Cleanse Soul. Although there is no reason to go above the 4th ranked skills on the offensive side that I can see.

    I wouldn't expect it to be an equipment thing...+105% 3/5ths of the time is going to outdamage +26% all of the time...and since that 26% takes time to build, you won't even have that all of the time. With 15 Inf, my Serpent normally only hit for 1.1-1.2k and my Backstab only hit for like 700 on crits. With Deadly Dance, my Serpent hits for 1.8-2.2k and Backstab hits for like 1k. Admittedly Deadly Strike hits for less than Final Blow by a bit, but that is more than made up for.

    Your build definitely has some advantages as far as Inf abilities that I recognize, but I see no way it could be comparable in damage with any equipment. To each his own though, glad you are having success
