    Default Does "The Cuisinart" leveling/grinding build still work?

    I had stared using this on my old rogue I was playing last year but just came back to game after a long layoff.

    here was the old progression, the build was made by Archaegeo


    At 30 Id probably be (if i did it all over again)

    Links don't work if you replace the middle section with an ellipsis.

    Well.. it'll work, but it's far from optimal. Going that deep into Bladedancer just isn't really worth it, and Leeching Poison isn't something that you want to give up for leveling.

    Check out Zyzyx's guide, it has leveling builds that'll be a lot more effective.

    Just gotta move the points around to grab some of the new and more effective abilities. 17 BD, 18 Sin, 20 RS minimum for each soul

    My rogue is at 29 and didn't want to wait till 35 to start... plus I like a little heavier RS in my build because I like to take advantage of the shifts.. I am pretty sure that it is costing me DPS from much lower sin but will be moving all my upcoming points in sin as I level to get to the minimum of 18 for poison malice....
    It was based mostly off of the defensive version of the Cuisinart with some point tweaks from Zyzyx's Rogue Bible...

    The DOT heal from BD is now a nice to have, although it's not really worthwhile unless you climb for the talented. You can get all the healing stuff though if you plan it right.

    This still gives you planar shift, and if for some reason you need to **** of dodge, Sprint is there too, though that's optional.

    Going for crit heals helps out alot too, letting the DOT heal tick nicely.

    yeah I really like that meditative trance at first I was trying to decide if that was better to use on fast finisher (in early part of fights)instead of annihilate..then build back up to the 5 combo for the rs heal but i have been trying to mix them so I have both running most of the time does the leeching poison give a good amount of heals at 18 in sin?

    It's pretty bad, but it's still better than nothing.

    It depends on your pull. If you pull a large pack, it may be better to go heal dot finisher, annihilate, heal dot finisher, other finishers. If it's a small pack, just hit annihilate if you need the buff up nd then kill normally with 5 cp to heal yourself.
