    Default An Alternative to 51assassin/15infiltraitor?

    Hi.

    I've been playing around with builds and came up with this:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...xobodbR.xx0M0c
    as an alternative to 51 assassin/ 15 inf for PVP.

    I guess I have open world pvp in mind with this build but it should work
    well enough in warfronts.

    Thoughts?


    p.s. my forum name isn't my account name. it's a junk email address. so...

    I tried the 51 Sin builds and tbh, they felt limited for team play. In perfect duels, yes, they allow a bit more control. But in most skirmishes (even 1v1 in WF where everything can't be prepared) I take 51 sins out fairly easily (p6 mitigation helps some, but i'll be p6 soon so that'll remove that advantage).

    I'm not going to post my spec, but I simply go 41 into Sin for Hidden Veil, 15 in Inf, the rest somewhere else ;)

    I tried a BD/Sin spec and TBH, you get much better burst if you go to DeadlyStrike in BD and then get Serpent Strike in Sin. You can then macro Serpent Strike to your Savage Strike builder, so guarentees you'll always pull the damage with it.

    Something like: poison malace - > jagged strike -> whispered silence -> puncutre -> impale -> deadly strike -> then use your Savage strike macro which will pull off a 100+% Serpent damage hit.

    Once again though, I found it fiddly and pretty situational. My normal build is good against all classes, so I stick with it.

    Edited to add: I'm coming from a PvP perspective!

    wow!If you can Impale and THEN Deadly strike, you must be playing a different game...
    Or is it some kind of new bug?

    ahah oops, take out the impale! SO:

    poison malace - > jagged strike -> whispered silence -> puncture -> deadly strike -> then use your Savage strike macro which will pull off a 100+% Serpent damage hit.

    OR

    poison malace - > jagged strike -> whispered silence -> puncutre -> impale -> [builder for 5 points] -> deadly strike -> then use your Savage strike macro which will pull off a 100+% Serpent damage hit.

    Throw in your foul play somewhere.

    You can start with assassinate but I find most people will react/run if they see you pop up and take a chunk of health, with the DoT approach, they seem to shrug as your initial burst barely scratches them, so you can get the rest of your moves off.

    Edited to add: I throw in anathema after first rotation if a healing class, or if i'm about to die I sometimes even throw it on a melee as it reduces drink health regen, so keeps them lower health for a little longer and someone else might get them.

    Playing 51sin/15rift/sab

    Assasinate->BS->Serpent->Final->(stun if he move)
    ....->puncture->BS

    Its way better then jag+impale

    I use stun sooner if he move.

    P.s Stab AP, i use mealow trinket for the 116ap 30sec
    Macro slip with the other trinket whisperet

    P.p.s you can use multi-trinket at same time
    Keep in mind when you slip it turn off combat
    So you can change gear (trinket)
