    Default Nightblade and Scourge of Darkness

    What are people's thoughts about SoD being on GCD? Any thoughts about it not being on GCD?

    Would that be OP?

    IMO

    pve: no

    pvp: questionable because of nb/rs already being strong
    Icecubetray - 60 Rogue
    Bongmaster - 60 Mage
    Tronzilla - 60 Warrior
    Herpzalot - 60 Cleric
    Stickybudz - 55 Cleric

    I would say with nb/sin being so good in pve it would prob be enough of a bump to get the nerf bat QQers out.

    NB is fine where it is, it's suppose to be strong but it's no where near OP. It works extremely well with a pocket healer but without heals like every other melee it falls off when it comes to team fights and getspurged, cc'd and blown up.

    There's no reason for it to be off GCD.

    It is already a verging on OP finisher, then it, in a crunch or if not timed well, not interrupting your dps is a bit silly.

    I'm also more a guy who likes things less dumbed down.

    Yeah, its turned into consistent dmg in a spike dps's game which is kinda sad. I loved the class for its 'choose a man to die' mentality but since the heal debuff nerf, loss of twilight shelter and hit to scourge dps and deadly dance... ugh... its just made for 40 points and riftstalker.... and that's bout it...

    try specing 61nb if you want burst. the 51 and 61pt abilities are the burst in the tree.

    scourge -> get 5cps -> living flame -> dark descent -> 3x finishers
    Icecubetray - 60 Rogue
    Bongmaster - 60 Mage
    Tronzilla - 60 Warrior
    Herpzalot - 60 Cleric
    Stickybudz - 55 Cleric

    Im only 50 atm, so haven't gotten to test it out. It just didn't seem worth the wasted 20~ points. After the defensive CD at 40, everything else in nightblade looks like it is just bad short of the 61; living flames tooltip dmg seemed as high as dusk to dawn... with no root and over a longer duration. Dark containment is the same as an 11? point assassin ability. Making nightblade openers melee for a medium bump in dmg is an easy way to **** up and not get any opener at all...

    Those were just my impressions of the tree though, way to much crap to merit the loss of tons of mobility, worthwhile dmg buffs and/or survivability.

    61 Nightblade puts out tremendous pressure, paired with 8 in Riftstalker and 4 in tactician gives you decent mileage. Try it out.

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

    *the blazing trail is more what the soul needed, a way to reach targets and survive, but one ability paralleling a 0 point riftstalker one doesn't seem quite enough...
    I'd have to play with the spec itself to really make a hard opinion on it, but atm just looking at it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    Would you mind linking a build for this? Also, what are you doing with the last few points?

    61nb/12bd/3rs

    this is the build i use. not quite as survivable as 8rs/4tact but more damage, a sprint, a charge/root, 50% dodge cd, and most importantly you get an interrupt/silence
    Icecubetray - 60 Rogue
    Bongmaster - 60 Mage
    Tronzilla - 60 Warrior
    Herpzalot - 60 Cleric
    Stickybudz - 55 Cleric

    Much appreciated.

    Any chance you can copy/paste a few of your macros as well?
