    Default Just got my T3 Dagger

    Hello rogues.

    I've been playing mostly standard sab (44/20/2) and doing very well with it.

    I'm usually top or near the top of the heap in DPS in my guild runs.

    Keep in mind, we are on a non-release-day server so our progression is considerably behind headstart servers.

    At any rate, our guild got its first Anrak the Foul kill (2nd kill on server) and I looted the Dagger.

    Now that I have a nice melee weapon, I'm looking at melee specs.


    So far I've seen the bd/nb/sin (I think?) hybrid and the melee sab.

    Are there any other viable melee builds now in terms of outstanding raid dps?



    Is a nightblade-focused build comparable?



    I've tried a ton of different builds with melee sab being the highest dps on the dummy, followed by standard sab and bd/sin/nb hybrid. Surprisingly 51 Sin/15 BD was not competitive with these builds, despite the new 34 DPS dagger.


    Just looking for something a little different and fun.

    Looking for RAID DPS builds.
    For raids go to NB most definitely (if you want melee), high dps, range skills and dots, insane 15 second dusk strike+blazing strike massacre (dark containment) under the scourge of darkness it is probably the most powerful rogue melee combo attack (x5 FS)+SoD+DC+(x3 DS)+BS=uber dmg. DS+BS rotating.

    Have you seen the build post 1.2?

    Don't get me wrong, I like Nightblade too. Just currently, NB is not top dps. You want top, go Bladedancer/sin/nb or sin/bd/nb. YMMV, but I noticed a great gain when switching from NB to a sin build.

    For PvE I would say BD main, its nice for continous fighting and it also have the highest base dmg abilities, along with the Passive dmg boosts from Sin and Nb u get a pretty nice build ;)

    i use this build, i usually top the dps charts or am right under the mages, i do a pretty consistant 1200+ dps with it

    NB focused builds on a way of the past, you can't really break 1k dps with a NB heavy build but they do have great survivability

    Everyone is saying that spe is the best and even you can spam a single maccro to reach top charts. What is this maccro ?

    (1200 with relic daggers I suppose ?)

    this is the build i use:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...osoo0b.0VRcxob

    little more magic damage for fiery spike. ebon fury and blade tempo for some burst when needed. 3, two point abilities to cycle.

    my standard rotation:
    (opener)
    dark malady
    dancing steel
    fiery spike

    (rotation 1)
    fiery spike
    dusk strike
    back stab
    keen strike
    deadly strike

    (rotation 2)
    fiery spike
    precision strike
    puncture
    deadly strike

    rinse/repeat

    if you like assassin, i believe the spec is something like:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...0o.0iRcxor0dbR

    there's only 31 points in assassin. that extra point can be put anywhere. i'm also not sure about physical trauma. 2 points that deep just for jagged strike. i think i read that using impale is a slight dps loss over using deadly strike exclusively. can't really confirm that, its just something i think i remember reading. this would also mean that you don't need 32 points in assassin, and you could put that 1 extra point in NB for fire and death attunement for another 1% damage.

    I don't know if it was for me but I was talking about monomaccro BD template.

    Curious what that build would look like?

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...M.Vf0I0s.V0xMb

    Keen/Quick Strike/Precision Strike -Spam?

    Deadly Strike Finisher / Maintain Impale -Finisher?
