    Stalker Phase
    Planebound Resilience
    Fell Blades
    Leeching Poison
    Baneful Touch

    The specs:


    This is my recommended spec for lower prestige ranks, still a very close to my spec that I currently use

    For Rank 7-8 I recommend this spec, this is the spec i currently run

    I don't think primal death is worth it with this spec. Between backstab, puncture, dusk strike, twilight force, shadow assault, and phantom blow, how often are you really going to use primal strike?

    PvP spec without Inf is destined to fail.

    yes Keep impale up 100% of the time

    expose> jagged strike> 5 points>impale

    inf can offer me nothing that this spec can't with the exception of cleanse but I can easily shift to healers instead With this spec you get 2 cc breaks

    Cleanse soul is a must have vs decent clerics and mages, without it you die most of the times, with it you win most of the times and still lose sometimes (depending on they're spec). so yeah i think it's a very important skill to have.

    its nice to be mobile and blink around, but i would not give away 5 sec Immunity to spells plus removing all magical effects + it does not break stealth to use.

    But hey, we have different play styles and that is a good thing im not trying to convince you to change im just trying to explain my point of view ;)

    Cleanse Soul is great, but it's not a must have.

    I agree pre 1.5 I could say yes it was a must have but now rogues do enough damage it's definitely NOT a must have. Since 1.5 i don't have it in a single one of my PVP builds and don't find myself needing. Between VM, Fell blades, enduring brew, twilight trans, RS shields, you have a lot more defensive options to play with in builds than rogues used to making cleanse soul not necessary to take on even high rank mages. Right now how the buffs to the other souls came in there's very little reason to even go INF when you compare it to what you get from the other trees
    Warfronts need segregation of the Tiers. 1-5 and 6-8 or pre-50 pvp will be the most enjoyable PVP in the game.

    Haha true this build is actually ironically easier buttons wise than 44NB / 22RS

    Yeah it's a killer build, I've been using this (some small changes for personal preference) for the last couple of weeks, works like a charm. very strong overall build
