    Default New Bloodstalker spec using Bladedancer instead of Marksman

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...0M.VV0m.V0xcuR

    Has anyone given this a try? How does it fare compared to current Sin/RS/MM?

    Bear in mind that I am trying to compare based on the requirement of having an interrupt. My 1.6 buld is 32 Sin/22 RS/12 MM.

    It seems like switching to BD for MM lets me have more AOE, an interrupt without having to spend 2 extra points in Riftstalker, and an extra movement mechanic in Flash of Steel.

    I lose 5% damage, 25% AP, and 10% armor pen (This seems like a lot to lose, but I hate spending those last two points in Riftstalker to get the interrupt, and I hate my terrible AOE)

    Thoughts?

    The AoE using BD is worse unless you get Deadly Dance+Compound Attack.

    Fan Out hits more targets.

    Why would you even bother running a spec that was made for single target dps?

    You lose 20% Armor Penetration and 5% ST damage but gain an interrupt, (since you trade 25% AP from MM to BD). Use Keen/Quick instead of Savage Strike, Also gain Slip Away.

    Still 12 MM with 22 RS is prob better if you want an interrupt.

    Haven't tested it but it seems like you're spending 12 points to get an interrupt instead of 2.
    Gives up a ton of useful stuff to get one useful thing - you don't need flash of steel in a blink spec, and can get better aoe with other specs.

    Not using SS is silly.

    10% extra crit on it, in some specs, and +15% damage when behind.


    If you don't use the extra 10% crit, keen/quick MAY pull out ahead.



    Sadly, I've been missing out on all the fun. Been out of town since the 22nd and won't get back to my rig until the 4th..

    You trade 25% AP for 25% AP contribution to finishers and builders. This is not the same as 25% AP.
    25% AP boost applies to EW and poisons, 25% AP contrib doesn't.
