    Default Rogues in pvp.

    How are rogues in pvp at level 60? i'm obviously below the level cap, but i'm kinda wanting to level a mage instead, I remember when mages were way better than rogues for about a year before they adjusted rogues somewhat.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    At the moment you have one spec that is a bit OP: NB/RS

    You have one spec that is perhaps a slight bit OP: MM

    And you have a few specs that are decent, all-around specs: SIN/RS, Tac builds, Battlebard

    So we have some decent diversity.
    Moved on from Rift due to: Rift's PvP being a mindless, skilless zerg that has been and will continue to be perpetuated and reinforced :: A horribly optimized engine :: My personal distaste for F2P (already heading down the P2W path) after giving it a fair shake. Rift is an exceptional MMO by an overachieving development team that unfortunately is ruined by a few personally show-stopping issues.

    Can bring a healer down 100% to 0% in a in the middle of enemy team. I die in like 10 seconds though when people notice me.

    You really need a link to NB/RS? It's pretty much the same as the one pre-1.11. Only with added awesome from stances.

    I've seen some sick DoT ticks from tact/NB too that utilizes SOD to really bring the pain from 30m with bolts.

    But we're in a decent-ish place, I feel. I can kill and get killed as an MM, but then again, what do I know? I've only been stuck in this role for the past, what, 8 months?

    I tried nb/rs and its not even close to OP. Those people say you can 2-3 global anyone is wrong and the only way it is good burst is if you go deep in nb. nb/MM is more OP than nb/rs.

    You havent played it right, not sure how you can do that but meh. Its always been too tanky for the damage it does now its just even better. MM is also way too strong. i dont think anyone says it takes 3 globals to kill people with it, it just takes a ridiculous amount of beating and once their CD's are up they can port back to the safety of their healers. Lets not start defending the build, if you are you are either clueless or want to keep the build for easymode

    Apparently I'm not playing it right either.

    ..so powerfull no1 stands a chance in 1vs1, is this what u were trying to say? no other class is having any chance 1vs1 against a nb/rs average player

    PvP is not, and never has been balanced around 1v1.

    I think some of it just comes down to what you know and what you've spent your time playing.

    I have done okay as NB/RS in the past, but my natural playstyle is geared toward MM/RS, and consequently that's where I excel and do well.
