    Default Saboteur Main soul?

    I've played a warrior since I got into Alpha, and the last time I tried playing a rogue was several patches ago and only to level 24 or so. I love the concept of the saboteur, and was wondering what viable builds people have for saboteur roles (PvE grinding primarily, but also curious about Sab PvP). I'm looking to play the soul for fun, so don't bother posting "LOLZ U NOOB GO MM". Pre-emptive thanks.

    Can't use sab in solo pve grinding because rogue grinding revolves around rift scavenger which means you can't use finishers.

    Saboteur does no damage without using finishers so you end up doing no damage or not healing at all. Which are both bad situations.

    Can't use sab in pvp because a cleric/mage can negate 6 of your gcd's with 1 of his by cleansing all 5 of your charges at once.

    I was reading a bunch of your sab-blend builds, and kind of liked the Sab/RS build... was the issue with that just the lack of DPS? What kind of viability do you see for something like Sab29/RS23/Sin14 as a rift farming build?

    I was envisioning survivability (dmg redux & auto self-heals) from RS, while using the bombs in sab soul for aoe and dmg/crit increase as well as minor single target dmg from the sin soul.
    Am I trying to cover too many bases with this build, spreading the points too thin? I can't try it out right now (at work...) but should get a chance to play with it this weekend, pending comments.

    Sab is no good for pvp or pve, it would have to be overpowered to be useful based on its backloaded design. Just play NB, SIN, or MM.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    Well that makes me sad. Thanks for the input, at least I know not to waste time and frustration on it.
