    Default Ranged PVP spec - Geoff

    http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...-car-geoff.jpg

    the spec, named Geoff instead of some random stupid amalgamation of night blade and tactician.

    http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#AkQ/wkkka98Ag/T9yi2A

    (obviously a few points can be interchanged to your liking)


    Buffs

    Hellfire Blades
    Fell Blades
    Necrotic Engine


    Macros

    I actually only use 2 macros for the entire spec.

    #show empyrean ray
    cast empyrean ray
    cast hasted shot

    this basically makes it so if you're standing still, you cast empyrean ray (hits very hard, but has a cast time), and when you're moving you cast hasted shot, so if you're chasing someone you will use hasted automatically.

    #show twilight transcendence
    cast barrier remote
    cast twilight transcendence
    cast on the double


    self explanatory defensive cd mash button.



    Play style

    Stay at range and spam empyrean bolt, use scourge of darkness whenever it is up. When it isn't just use empyrean ray/hasted shot macro. When you're not at max range, throw in a twilight force for 10% more damage. If they try to run, use Dusk to Dawn.

    If you are getting stomped, spam the CD macro then mass repulsion and book it out of there.

    Throw down curative core if you're bored for trivial offhealing, but necrotic core is good for preventing the enemy from capping/picking up stones.

    You have fan out and necrotic ray for AoE, but I never bother, I only single target.

    When done right you should be at like 50/0 in scion with little effort. Something similar may have been posted, don't know, but I never see anyone running anything similar when I pvp.

    sorry if i was confusing, i don't only use that macro. i have the actual skills on my hotbar and click them manually. when in a bind, i hit the macro to use everything at once if its up.

    I used to run something similar and I see lots of rogues using it still. Spec is called Beautician.

    This any good? I've been looking for a good rogue pvp spec because I'm not thrilled with saboteur or assassin and have been using tactician for overall utility in the meantime.

    Its fine for port scion or something. I stopped using it because its very situational and I don't have lots of room for extra PvP specs.

    Pros:

    -Pretty solid single target burst damage. Approximately on par with 61MM.

    Cons:

    -Weak survivability.
    -Very low mobility
    -Bad/marginal AOE.
    -Never wins a 1v1 against anyone good. Needs 2 min cooldown to beat bads, unless they are really bad.

    This in response to a post responding to Dunsparrow made the whole trip to this board worth it this morning.

    Nightician and Tactiblade are smile worthy though
