    Default 5 points to spare. What to spend it on?

    Im making a 51 Assassin with 10 points in Nightblade (Blazing Fury and Coup De Grace)

    That leaves me with 5 points to spare, and here are the options im considering:
    Riftstalker; 5/5 Unseen Fury (15% Attack Power). Also gives Shadow Shift and Planebound Resilience (Endurance buff).
    Ranger; 5/5 eagle Eye (5% Crit)

    Or i could continue into Nightblade with 2/2 (or 1/2) Melted Skin for a 5% damage buff.
    If i do that, i can either pick 3/3 Unstable state (9% non physical damage ie. poisons?) or 3/3 Fire and Death Attunement (3% damage)
    or 3/5(or2/5) in Riftstalker or Ranger.

    So my question is; what would be the most useful to spend my extra 5 points on?
    Hope its readable/understandable =)

    PvE or PvP?

    I like 5SAB for builds with 5 spare points. Frag bomb can be thrown in for a little AOE punch which the Assassin build lacks and Adhesive Bomb gives you some escapability. You can add charges on sapped targets as well for some opening burst. It adds a lot of versatility since Charges are a unique mechanic. The Dex bonus also adds to your attack power and crit rating, and will scale with buffs in a raid or dungeon group.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Definitely Sabo. Nothing beats that 15% extra Dex.

    Ok.

    Thanks for the replies =)

    I ended up with 4/5 Nimble Fingers and 1/2 Melted Skin.
    Im guessing i can keep Melted Skin up pretty much all the time, and thats a 5% damage increase.

    A few points:

    1. 51pt assassin is a below par dps spec for pve
    2. If you insist on it then get Deadly Dance from the Bladedancer tree
    3. Don't go 51pt assassin it's crap

    Do 9 nb and put 6 into ranger. Gives you 5% crit, 46 AP, and 2% less dmg taken or a ranged snare. Also gives you a decent ranged cp builder and finisher.

    I know you want to try "something different" or "fun" but all it ends up being is more work for whatever group you get into.

    If you were in my PuG, pulling the 500dps during bosses you'd probably do, I'd post the parse with me at 850, and have a laugh with my friends.
