    Default AoE grinding build?

    My Rogue is currently level 24, and I'm looking for an AoE grinding spec with similar effectiveness and efficiency as the Duracell spec for Clerics. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    doesnt exist

    Nothing rogues have is that good.

    I'd recommend ranger/marksman until 35 or so then switch to bd/rs/sin

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MVMp.Vbdh..V0xuzR is where i would have my points at level 24.

    The full build and how to play it are in the guide in my signature. There are many variations on it, but for the most part BD/RS/Sin is the best soul combo for soloing.

    For 24 I'd do this:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MVMp.Vbdh..V0xuzR


    29:

    37:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MVMp.Vbdh..V0xuzR



    Then after that toss poitns into BD as you're leveling up.

    Reason I don't get serrated blades until later is because your crit will be too low.

    Go ranger, find a good bow/gun.

    pick up a pack of mobs, toss the regen on your pig, divert rage -> rain of arrows.

    repeat.

    Like most aoe grinding, it works best with mobs somewhat below your level

    Same build all three links.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1MVMp.Vbdh.0V.V0xudR @ 29

    and http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...h.0VRcx.V0xudR @ 37

    would be my recommendation

    with http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...xMbV00M.V0xudR @ 50

    Some people go heavier BD than Sin but i like having the poison points since you rely on leeching poison for a lot of heals.

    The soul builder lags it to where FF almost crashes.

    At home now, proper builds:

    I really have to disagree with doing rs/bd/sin before level 30 or so

    Ranger/mm is the way to go early on.

    something like http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MfN_.x0x0m.VMRbdc

    or http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MfN_.x0h.VMRbdez

    Why wait so long to get DD? Would think that would kill your AoE dps. Either way two different approaches that get you to roughly the same build at 50.

    really though.

    ranger 1-50 >_>

    mobs you level on die so quickly that efficiency and min/max potency hardly even matters.

    Free tank, free incrim onto your tank, unlimited target aoe and a practically free tank heal in one.

    Ranger's trash at 50, but I find it pretty hard to beat while leveling.

    I wouldn't even get DD until after 37, after you get 25 in sin and 20 in RS.


    Survivability + Poisons. Leeching Poison buffed up will help immensely with survivability and the ability to pull more mobs. 20 in RS to keep 15% crit and 15% damage up, and AoE through Rift Disturbance/Heal through Rift Scavenger.

    Ranger is way too slow for me, when I'm leveling a character up if i can't pull 3-4 mobs at a time, pretty much constantly, that character will never get leveled up. Ranger is one mob at a time, maybe a couple if you can get divert rage right, but killing mobs mostly one at a time is a painful waste of effort.

    Guy in my guild who was leveling a rogue alt pulled everything in range, divert rage to pig, rain of arrows, stuff dies and he gets healed via leeching poison procs.

    Move on to next area, pull everything, repeat.

    Its so far from one mob at a time, unless you're talking about elites. But no one level grinds off of elites anyway.

    I really enjoy the fact this topic has NOTHING to do about Rift, and it turned into a Rift fest.

    I'm just gonna report my own thread and be done with it.
