    Default Best PVP Melee Build at 50?

    I've got mainly all T2 gear and Prestige 3 gear, but have always been ranged. Just curious whats a good pvp melee spec and any macros you use? I'm mainly looking for something that I can take down a healer or mage very quickly.

    Thanks for the help!

    yea i never understood that spec, what good is a spec that can at most 1 v 2 and the only if they are lesser geared/skilled and then only if they are squishy.

    def perfer 33sin/33nb/0rng, can (with some great effort) 1 v 3 lesser skilled opponents and can 1 v 1 all classes including tanks and healers.

    just a huge learning curve is all... no easy mode 1 button macro.
    Useful Rogue guides since I don't want to answer 50 billion questions anymore:
    Marksman, Ranger, Nightblade, Blink'Blade, Asstalker, Assdancer, and finally The Hoko Spec™

    3x AS / 3x NB is good for maximum burst and flexibility
    51 AS is good for maximum opening burst
    51 NB is good for debuff + AOE burst + defensive cooldowns
    3x BD / INF is good for premades with continuous skirmish; requires high prestige

    I think you should test and see what you like...BUT.

    I really like:

    51 as/15 inf/0rs
    51 nb/0mm(or rs)/15 inf does twilight use your range damage if you use a range soul? Haven't tested. This build is amazing for killing healers, double heal debuff. Pop silence from stealth your fire aoe and either aoe the crap out of them or ebon fury single target.
    games not open think it's
    36 as/16rs/15nb love this spec for mobility. From stealth shadow stalk, use w/e backstab from stealth you want. Annihilate and then tee off, I have seen my ap at 1037 with this spec.

    If you're geared (t3weapon), i think 51sin/15bd/0ran is funnest, you can kill people in the lockdown.

    stun*>puncture>deadlydance>serpent**&backstab>fina lblow


    *could assassinate then foul play
    **should kill badly geared people around here

    Since you're only Prestige 3 right now, you'll want some survivability in your build. That means you'd want some Nightblade at least. 32 Sin / 32 NB / 0 Infil is perfectly viable with any kind of gear (spare points in either Sin or NB). 51 Sin is just too squishy without some decent valor gear to survive in warfronts. Once you get your Prestige 5 gear, 51 Sin is the way to go.
