    I based my PA on what weapon I got first in HK.


    That would be swords for me.

    I mostly PVP so I went with air (weapons are bow and dagger, same as pvp gear). Plus the weapon enhancement in the second tier looks good.

    But really it doesn't matter too much. Unless you heavily favor dps over tanking (or vise versa). Attunement is really just for fun and provides further character customization. The bonuses are really negligible.

    And in retrospect, I think it's silly to pick one plane only because of the weapon you have. What if a better weapon comes out in the next patch, or you get a different one from a drop? Just pick a plane that looks appealing.

    Level them based on what weapons you have (or will probably have in the future) and don't worry about getting into T2 really, none of the T2 abilities are worth using at this point.

    Do what most are saying, but also think ahead. Of what weapon is BiS for your spec.

    I've max'd swords, guns and daggers. I don't have a dagger atm but I am preparing for when I get Molten Brand from RoTP. I use Beastcarver as my main hand for now.

    So imho Swords, Guns and Daggers are your best options to max. Since getting the bis til Relic is attainable by throwing together a half decent raid. And then when you finally are able to get relics, dagger is already max'd as well as swords ie. Solition Blade and Fang of Akylios.

    Filling the dps for your weapons is easy for the tier 1 PA's. Then tier 2 is when it sucks because you have to waste so many points to get +dps.

    Maxed all of my T1 swords and was about to get into t2 when suddenly relic dagger.

    Go for what you'll likely end up with for the foreseeable future, and remember not to waste your 1 free GM PA reset on swapping out of marksman. sadface.

    Yeah I just used my 1 off reset to get swords maxed as I am using the beast carver now, but I have the GsB relic dagger off hand at the moment so for blinknblade I will have to max daggers too, I won't be seeing T2 for a while especially as best in slot is daggers if you are lucky to drop one in HK.

    However grinding icewatch rep in normal AP is fantastic exp, I am going to use it for my planar attunements, 4minute runs 50k exp and 3.3k rep AWESOME!

    Dont waste your time worrying about offhands, they add almost nothing to your DPS.

    I'm a bit of an outsider in that I initially chose my planar attunement off of the theme I go with for my rogue, death. Wasn't the best choice stats wise (dex obviously is more important than str) but it fit in well with my guy. Now that I'm Tier 2 and have the Vamp Essence (that was fixed last patch) I'm fairly pleased though. Granted... my two weapons that fell out of HK were swords not daggers... so I'm a bit screwed on that front. Ceste la vi. Min max, I'd say air, water, fire... but go with whatever. You CAN get them all. It's like Pokemon.

    Is the vamp proc any good? It will likely be my first t2 tree, looks like it would be great for solo grinding.

    Now that they fixed it so it doesn't drop off on death... it's not bad. It FEELS like they upped the healing a little as well. It is not nearly as good as say.. Leeching poison, but it definitely makes solo grinding easier. Especially if you have some Riftstalker in the build. An assassin/Rifstalker build with leeching and this would be freaking hardy as hell. It is also decent in pvp! Until you get the 60 vegence stones... I'd say it's probably the best weapon enchant.

    Yeah but I want to min/max my aoe, and grinding exp at 12k a minute (24k with a pot) it isn't going to take long now to max an attunement.
