    Default RS 31pt

    Hey, I came across this suggestion buried within a guide and I thought it was a good idea.

    I dunno if anyone saw this but the 31 point riftstalker talent really sucks so I think a change would be good.

This would allow us to start a fight with our RiftGuard up instead of requiring us to constantly begin with a cooldown until our finishers our up. Ironically, having planar switch in the Saboteur Tree may not be a bad idea either for saboteurs. There are many situations where you start implementing charges on a target but have to detonate early because it is near death. There's the other case when you put 5 shrapnels on a target that strays away from most of the other targets (the tanking is holding threat on all of them but the specific one you have 5 charges on isn't centered so your detonate won't hit the whole pack). Planar Switch would help this case a great deal and being the state of Saboteurs in PvP right now it may actually improve them in that aspect as well.

    Given that Rift Guard now applies on blinks or Guarded Steel, this quote is a tad outdated. Also, it can be pointed out that you only need one combo point to put up Guarded Steel since the other points only increase the damage of said attack, not the buff.

    Sab is what it is currently. If they are actually looking into it like they say for 1.8, perhaps it will become something other than an Estrode build.

    I agree the 31pt sucks, but I think the copy and paste is from a few patches ago. Riftguard is up the moment you plane shift in. As well guarded steel only requires one combo point to get the full duration.

    You don't really need to be able to pre-cast Rift Guard now that it procs off of plane shifts - it used to be more of an issue when plane shifts just gave you a crappy version of your barrier and Rift Guard was a finisher itself, but now you can just Shadow Blitz in and immediately use your first 2cp on Guarded Steel while you build your points up.

    yeah i know it's outdated and i probably shouldnt have quoted the entire thing but the switch between planar switch and rapid setup sounds good i think

    Single target pull or some other utility would be more useful than combo points, since there's not much to do with them anymore.

    31pt abilities are supposed to be class defining right? I haven't had planar switch on my bar for months.....
