    Nuku runs either 40mm/36rng or 44mm/32rng if he needs a purge. I think I've seen him run 61mm once ever.

    It depends on what you're asking.

    The best ranged PvP spec is 61 Marksman, due to its solid damage output and insane utility (including Eradicate, the most overpowered ability in the game*). 61 Ranger does somewhat more damage, but it lacks the utility that makes Marksman so ridiculous.

    That being said, it takes experience to play Marksman to its maximum potential. Just as an example, you need to be able to identify which buffs are and are not purgeable at a glance, and prioritize which specs should be purged (IE purging a Warlord isn't much use, but purging a Marksman or Assassin will hurt them a lot).

    *Except for Wrathful Exuberance, but that's a bug that'll hopefully be fixed next week.

    The question still isn't completely clear.

    Take this spec for example:
    http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#w...Gi54w/Akx24870 (TAC 38, MM 33, NB 5)
    It can do INSANE AoE DPS, but the damage per enemy is severely reduced in PvP. So in something like Conquest with huge zergs, you'll be at/near the top of the DPS chart. In Port Scion, you won't be very useful in defeating runners or the idols but will be great for getting the bridge. In Black garden you won't be able to kill their fang holder, but the torrents can blanket the fang area hitting twice per second, effectively preventing them from picking it up.

    There's also a huge downside with this spec: If you're hitting 20 people, 20 people's auto-target will target you. You can go down quick.

    61MM is not as good as 40/36 or 44/32.

    40/36 doesn't have Eradicate, and 44/32 does less burst.

    Hmm...

    Ever heard of Abolition?

    Not an ability as such I guess, but as a direct comparison, lol @ a mindless 20 mtr spam purge (that is actually your main builder)

    Imagine the fun if, idk, cadence or cadenza purged a buff for every 1.5 second of channel (not that they do the dmg of Fierce Strike ofc, maybe every 2nd Emp Bolt instead?)

    I wouldn't say eradicate is the top ability in game, there are a lot of abilities that are more OP:
    - Riftspear in RB
    - that spammable aoe purge and cleanse archons have
    - burning fury

    Those off the top of my head are better then eradicate.

    Back to the question of the OP, I've been messing around with different ranged specs recently looking for something decent in pvp. NB-tact looked promising but fell a bit short, I ended up going melee.

    To be blunt, you think that a warden can heal through a Marksman. You have no idea what a good Marksman in PvP looks like.

    You should not being offering any advice about PvP specs.
