    Default 1.7 Rogue Spec

    I'm very much looking forward to trying these specs.

    Keep in mind that these specs are based off of the current proposed changed for the Rogue class in patch 1.7.

    Let the discussion commence!

    I'm leaning towards the Assassin/BD/NB as the dominate Rogue spec for 1.7

    Can't wait to test this on PTS

    Any thoughts?

    NB will scale horribly with it, imo.

    However, I dont think its worth it to go that deep into Sin. You'd be better off getting CC 3/3, and 5/5 Armor pin in MM. And only ever using DD as your finisher with the BD crystal, instead of sin.

    My logic may be ill in this but wouldn't the total bonus be 46% based off of the new changes to BD with the additional bonus in NB?

    Edit: I also want to see the BD armor pen become pro-dominate to the spec. I feel it would give BD its own niche.

    I just know how horribly %dmg modifiers scale in this game, and how much worse they get on fights like sicaron. Which is kinda what I was basing it off of.

    Still does not hurt to test these when the patch goes to PTS.

    No.


    The changes to BD will do nothing to make any BD builds competitive, and especially not over Bloodstalker.

    You shouldn't, both of your specs are terrible. BD will never outclass MM or RS as a sub soul for bloodstalker with expose weakness in its current state.

    mmhm, especially when exposed is fixed. Will make it easier to get near 100 percent up time of exposed as well...I would always try it before, and it would get removed far to quickly...wouldn't justify refreshing it with a 2pt final blow.

    I don't understand why you would want it fixed to remove only 1 stack per tick, it will ZZZ the entire spec, worse than IQS did to MM

    Are we talking PvP or PvE here?

    There are quite a few situations that BD will trump RS in PvP currently on live.

    Not always, but most of the time BD is an amazing sub soul. At least it works for me. Been running at least 13 BD in most of my sub specs since 1.2 I think.

    the current issue is that serrated removes 3 stacks per tick but only applies the bonus of 1 stack. instead allow it to apply the bonus of all 3 removed stacks.

    I know what the issue is, it was me that posted it dude. I'm asking him why he wants the fix to be that it takes 1 stack, uses 1 stack, over takes 3 stacks, uses 3 stacks.
