    Default the best the best the best

    "the best" is gonna get you nowhere. there's alot of soul combos that people like to call "the best" because it works for their own natural playstyle. For instance, even on a basic level, do you do better with ranged or melee? If anything you need to be more specific in what you mean by "THE BEST".

    anyway, I've been really liking bladedancer/riftstalker/bard for PvE. (this is pretty bad for PvP)

    went with RS skills that heal you for your left over combo points, along with bard's cadence, and always end fights at full health.

    not real sure about the exact rotation, but usually rift-warp in (have 3 different ones), basic attack, basic attack, BD finishers, done. If my health starts to get low towards the end of the fight, start throwing off cadences for minor heals and combo points, then get healed by the left over combo points, rinse and repeat.

    Stealth/incap is good for two or more mobs, you even have one or two AOE attacks for more hairy situations.

    works great for me, esp. as a solo player.

    44 sab spec is probably the best for aoe dps and single target with easy in rotation, you can find spec and guide using search.

    You may also want to look at the BD/Sin Spec also which has some good melee dps, again use search to read guides on them.

    This thread. Rocks for PVE grinding and fun. Not top DPS though if you have a tank to keep all agro

    The "best" spec for the absolute least amount of effort would probably be 44Sab. Sab is the best AoE we have and the single target DPS is not too bad either. It would be a good spec to use while you learn dungeon mechanics while still being able to do good DPS for your group. You can safely be ranged or melee with this spec. Melee will help your DPS on single target.

    5 Spike -> Detonate
    5 Shrap -> Detonate
    Repeat once Spike DoT has worn off.

    I use the same spec in large warfronts as well because its hilarious to one shot people. Doubt a fresh 50 sab could do that though >_>. Apart from that I won't comment on PvP specs.

    For PvE grinding (quests, rifts, etc) there is a thread somewhere in these forums that has some fun soloing specs. Here is the one I used while I grinded:

    This spec, its a melee sab which makes it a little more difficult to play but it does incredible damage.

    You'll do better dps with puncture instead of BS, and by dropping points from ambidex to get combat efficiency.

    This spec will beat 44sab on any fight unless you absolutely can't melee at all.

    BD/sin/NB builds and melee ranger builds do similar single target dps on melee friendly fights.

    The OP isn't a raiding 50 though so the advice in this thread won't help much.

    You may be right I will parse it out later, i was using backstab because it was more energy efficient. But nice constructive thoughts thanks.
