    Default So whats the new build for PvP come 1.5

    I don't PTS so I cant play around much with the new code.

    I'm a P6 rogue and I have 4 PvP specs as of now. One for stone running, one range(44MM), one melee (51sin/15inf/0Rang), and a Bard PvP spec.

    So what will be the new hot melee spec? I do prefer to melee vs range as of now. I do play around with the dominant specs and tweak them to my play style, but I like to use the templates as a starting point.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you need one melee specc for all situations...
    Sabdancer.
    All other speccs are more or less situational or deal less damage.
    An alternative could be rs/sin/bd hybrid, but sabdancer should still provide more flexibility.

    Amazing, eh?

    Edit:
    Misread, thought u had 4 pvp-builds and that u were looking for an allaround pve melee-build for ur 5th role.
    Ignore the post.

    hehe. No Problem. Yea my 5th role is SabDancer for PvE. Im looking for what my PvP respecs will be once 1.5 rolls around. I PvP usually, and PvE rarely if the guild needs to fill a spot. PvE is just too "easymode". Do the dance, get a toy.

    No idea yet - things like that are best tested in game in my experiece.

    I'd imagine it's business as usual - 32 assassin at minimum for slip away since you have 2/3 of the hps of everyone else and then figure out where the points are best allocated to max your dps. That or range MM.

    38 NB/Sin/Inf/MM/BD/Sab etc. It'll be 38 NB.

    For melee Assassin looks pretty strong. Enduring brew critting for over 2k and nice buffs to poison damages, a new break free, Assassinate ignoring 100% armor and hitting harder, etc. Some things to keep in mind for a PvP melee build are:
    16 NB gets you Fel Blades
    10 BD gets you Flash of Steel
    MM now benefits melee builds as well for AP and ArP
    RS viable for teleports and AP buffs

    Like Mayi said, you'll probably find what's best through testing in game.

    Can't talk about it too much until live (don't want it nerfed) - and then it's not a final spec that couldn't use a tweak or two. With Trion making several last-minute adjustments, it's hard to say it'll be viable before patch anyways.

    You are going to see a lot of core Sin/MM combo specs with RS, BD, Infil, or NB mixed in (Ranger also has a possibility but I can't get the build to be allocated correctly without too much loss in DPS/pets not proc'ing Bloodthirsty is a big change though). You are still going to see RS/Bard, NB-heavy and Eradicate spammers still (MM burst be damned, doesn't matter when you are the buff-removal/healing debuff bot now).

    or maybe: 51 RTFM / 15 L2P / 0 Boon

    haven't decided yet... o.O'

    51 RTFM/15L2P/0 ST.FU has tested very well for me.

    I tried ST.FU but ROFL provides more WOOT then ST.FU although ST.FU has the VCR element to it.

    This is what many thought before elrars latest post.
    Surely, we thought, they wouldn't make changes from this PTS build, for it is too close to live, there would be no time for feedback, no time for change!
    We're still a day and a half off, plenty of time for more nerfs, announced or unannounced.
