    Default Best Rogue Pvp Build 1.5?

    I Have Just Recently Started Rift and im wondering what the best 1v1 rogue build is atm.
    I have heard Nightblade is awesome but am not too sure.
    I'm asking because i dont want to re-soul my whole build. If i get it wrong :\
    Thanks in advance

    Depends on your gear.

    From rank 1-5, bard it up or go MM/SIN (ranged).... stick with people, VE people, eradciate healers, stealth to people or you will get jumped

    From r5+ go NB/sin or whatever suits your playstyle.

    Im midway through r5 and playing 51sin/15bd... its fun but i cant wait till r6 weps.

    Anyone have an opinion on the Rogue PVP soul, Infiltrator? Just wondering if it's worth looking into using before level 50 at least...

    Yeah it's usefull. Most common with 51sin and the nb/mm builds.

    Oh 1v1 builds...umm rogues are probably the weakest 1v1 class in the game currently. Best chance to kill someone is a poorly played mage or a warrior.

    you might try 51sin/15bd or infiltrator/0 ranger

    Absolutely, but only for the cc break. You can't go into the second tier until you are 50.

    Some variation of NB/RS is usually strong 1v1 with all the defensive cooldowns. The most commonly used builds are probably 44nb/22rs, 40 nb/26rs. There are guides all over the forums.

    Edit: For the 3rd soul you could go either Bladedancer for Sidesteps or Infiltrator for Break Free.

    Hm, from my experience mages seem to be the top 1v1 class then clerics then rogues/warriors is pretty balanced

    Low ranks I only suggest MM/RS/Inf and Bard/RS/mm.

    Both mainly for support since your damage output will be low and you need suvivability. With Bard build it's a runner and support role. If you can't dish the damage out just dish the healing.

    More ways than one to seem important in the game.

    You can try NB/RS but I haven't tried it on low ranks seeing that i was on low pre valor, maybe post valor it's viable? not sure, give that ago but i got myself a sin/mm which is my most damaging.

    I love the Marksman soul and have that on two separate roles, one with Assassin and the other with Ranger. Regardless, I do perfectly fine in team PVP in the Warfronts though can see it helping in world PVP or while progressing ranks at level 50... Will have to test it out eventually though I will research as to how much of it is worth spending talent points into it first.

    I also have a melee build i don't use much but like having under certain circumstances. All in all, I'll have to find a place to put it otherwise I'll need to open a fourth PVP only role.

    A NB/RS with cooldowns should not lose to anyone ever 1v1.

    Sorry, I had to laugh at this! If you're not running a MM build you can 1v1 pretty much anyone other than a better geared/played/speced rogue or some healers (just ends in a stalemate).

    I've been able to win 1v1 consistantly, usually without cooldowns, since I switched from a MM spec @ r4.
