    There isn't one for a fresh 50 sadly there is hardly one for an R8 but id suggest 44Nb/22 sin just don't expect to kill much of anything but at least with details cooldowns you won't always did in 2 seconds

    Warfronts need segregation of the Tiers. 1-5 and 6-8 or pre-50 pvp will be the most enjoyable PVP in the game.

    Don't try to melee DPS as a rogue. For serious. It's bad for your mental.
    I tired it one time and I were never teh saem.

    This melee build is for a new lv50 rogue. Try it out.


    Edit:
    For when you reach P6 use this build for melee.

    I use it and enjoy it very much. I also do own people as P8.

    You don't want to melee as a fresh 50 Rogue. Those rank 8 Riftblades will be eating a sandwich with a side of you.

    If you really are dead set on PvPing as melee, do a MM/NB variant. Have kiting ability and CDs to keep you alive.

    Melee as 44nb/12mm/10inf

    You will need P2 to do this build.

    I found this build did better then most since you have felblades healing debuff and even if your damage sucks it helps the team out and gives you much needed cooldowns and surviveability.

    I tried the 51MM build when I was a fresh 50 and found I did about the same damage but it was all healed through. This build fares better and has the healing debuff and more oh **** buttons.

    I've been running around as

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...s.V0o.xx0R0f0b

    and doing fairly well with it, course its not quite as useful without p4...

    Or you can go 51 riftstalker and tank them...

    51/assassin 15/infiltrator

    You'll need prestige 4 though so instead you're left with 51 a lower damage assassin build which like with ALL rogue builds right now in pvp a 1 pump wonder. You pop everything you have in the hope it catches somebody off guard from healers or already damage to get a kill then run away. Rogues are basically a metaphor for older male sex drive. Once popped they need to take a break, eat a sammich, then they can return later to contribute again for a very short period of time before repeating.

    I'm prestige 6 and it's still the exact same case as I was in lower rank. You don't go into melee if you want to live. You jump in quickly use all cooldowns and escape before someone notices you. Good luck trying to solo any competent player though because you won't win unless they have a seizure mid fight and fall on the floor away from the keyboard. In the case of riftblades they can still do this and you'll kill yourself.

    Blade dancer and night blade has absolutely laughable damage until the later tiers. Even then it's still laughable and players will often ignore you because even beating on them you aren't a threat.
