    Default 24_Assassin/18_Bladedancer/24_NightBlade

    Anyone give me feedback on this build I am debating on for PVE Raids/Dungeons.

    Rotation? Also, 2 points in HFB is a waste.

    No. Why would you take imp weapon enchantments over 3/3 CE?

    True it is but in order to get Heat Retention i needed a point somewhere and didn't see anything else i liked.

    Rotation really haven't worked that out yet but I would most likely macro the main attacks together something like this:

    Precision Strike
    Puncture
    Dusk Strike
    Quick Strike
    Keen Strike
    (Might switch around Puncture and Dusk Strike)

    As for Finisher it would be Dauntless Strike to keep it active and Deadly Strike pretty much all the time.

    Moved 1 point around from Assassin and changed RFB to 1 point only. http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...b.Vf0A.Vhxzhog

    If you are going to use HR, you should be running FS in the rotation.

    Edit: Subterfuge is a terrible DPS talent. Pick up CE in the BD tree instead.

    Liking the feedback everyone I appreciate.

    I like Heat Retention for the damage boost to the Finisher, I would imagine this would go off pretty much every other Finisher, so not worried about the non-physical damage buff. I see what you mean in regards to Subterfuge and I merely had it for the initial combo point but it does make sense to take it out.

    I have re-worked the build to take into account everyone's feedback so here is what I have now.

    Don't use Dauntless Strike in a raid, the 5% crit doesn't stack with the bard motif so it's useless.

    Correct, assuming there is a Bard (most cases yes)

    Also was toying with another Build 31_Assassin/18_Bladedancer/17_NightBlade: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...Vf0A0c.VhxzhoT

    Rotation for this would be something like:
    TRASH
    Assassinate -> Puncture --->Deadly Strike :::: Dusk Strike -> Keen Strike -> Precision Strike ---> Deadly Strike

    BOSS
    Assassinate -> Puncture --->Deadly Stike :::: Slip Away :::: Assassinate -> Dusk Strike ---> Deadly Strike :::: Puncture -> Keen Strike -> Precision Strike ---> Deadly Strike

    I recommended FS because it is between a 50-150 dps increase.

    If you want to go that deep in sin, drop one point into BS and you can get Impale.
