    Default Current top Melee build?

    Hey, I've been looking around forums. And alot of the material has an older date on it, so I was just wondering what the top melee build is for rogue. (ofc it changes per instance but just a normal go-to)

    61 Assassin/10MM/5NB. However, that spec does not have any AoE.

    44NB/32Sin and 61BD/10sin/5nb do somewhat less ST damage, but have decent and very strong AoE, respectively.

    there is an assassin guide for 2.1. Its what I use and i'm getting close to 10k on thedummies w/ no crystal and just expert gear.

    These builds *should* still be viable for pure ST dps encounters. For good ST with good AoE, check out the new bladedancer or NB-Sin guides.

    I'll defer to Gery on this one. I haven't actually done the math, just eyeballed it.

    How about 10mm/5nb vs 10rng/5nb?

    I really enjoy the NB soul and was wondering how far behind the Hybrid is 61 NB? I bard in raids so it would really only be used in Expert Dungeons.

    If you're talking about 61 NB (not assassin), the hybrid is slightly ahead to the tune of a few percent. With assassin, though, the hybrid is at least 1k behind, probably closer to 1.5k. Of course, that comes with the caveat of assassin being not worthwhile on so many fights because of it's lack of AOE and poor target switching.
