    Default PvP - anyone else loving 38nb/28sin/0bd?

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...0ss.0A0fx0bqzz
    Anyone else running something like this? I see nearly every NB running some mix of Nb/rs or 51nb. With 28 sin, you get full speed perma stealth, a stun, enduring brew, vastly superior sin stealth openers (with cloak and dagger bonus), bigger crits, and most importantly, leeching poison. You give up some mitigation, and some mobility, but NB easily has enough mid-range options to cover the gap. Leeching turns NB Defensive's into healing time, Enduring Brew's short CD is very nice in turning the tides in a close fight/enabling you to chain kills, and a stun in NB in my opinion is priceless. Rift scavenger is nice, but in a 2 on 1 scenario, you're not getting that heal until you drop your target - leeching keeps you up long enough to get the kill (And your bloodthirsty heals), and move to the next target. Pre 1.7, every spec I ran without RS just melted, and now this actually feels pretty survivable. Opinions?

    Most likely a decent spec and I have seen others try it. However I still think nb/RS is better. Only because of survivability and I still think dps is higher.

    Kill a few people, back up arrives, port away break LoS stealth and then drink, go back in. I find that too useful.

    With the improvements made to Bd I think more players should invest pts into if they want better finisher dmg with Nb...

    I tried both 51nb/15bd and 12bd/32nb/22rs, and tbh, I wasn't overly impressed with either. I am a spec ***** though, so maybe I should try something like a little more NB heavy.
