    Default Top Rogue PvP Specs?

    What are some of the top rogue pvp specs/builds at level 60 currently?

    I'm sure Assassin is one of them, but that's not my primary play style.

    I'm especially interested in a solid MM PvP spec as well as something either bladedancer or NB.

    Thanks,

    Given the spec itself isn't bogus, you can do something reasonable with all the souls.

    Sin, Bd, Nb, MM, Ranger, Bard - all souls you can put 61pts into and perform well with.

    MM is the hardest to go wrong with really. I prefer mixing it with ranger and nb iirc. Or maybe it was ranger and sin. Point being, you can't go wrong too badly. Just don't dump 15pts into RS or anything silly.

    MM can be very easy to go wrong with. The only map you cannot go wrong with MM is whitefall. With all the other melee classes that can charge at you and take you down MM is a class that needs to be played by someone with very good awareness. MM doesnt have survival besides running away. If you dont have a place to run you cant just slip away.

    I understand there are people that play MM allot and it is normal to them and there play style, but I have tried to get a few Rogue friends to play MM and they just cant do it. 61 MM is all about play style. Its a great spec but its not easy to play since you always need to be moving and you can get focused down very fast by mages, other rogues, ect.

    I love the playstyle and that fact you have no heals no dmg reduction,ect. I just wish they would fix the heal debuff, buff. It is now very pointless and you 1v1 a healer and you can be taken out fast due to the lack of heals siphoned back to you. It used to be usefull and great for 1v1 or even 1v2 but now its just useless.

    Thats the main thing that needs to be changed with Marksman. Then maybe we will see more of them rather then 10 Assassins running around.

    I've played MM since closed beta and there are so little of them now compared to before. I see maybe 1 Marksman per 5 Assassins

    If you want to be super squishy and die in 3 GCD's, then go Marksman.

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

    Before I clicked the thread, I knew this post was going to be about how you won't play MM.
    You can relax. We get it. I'm sure everybody knows by now that Gunzip doesn't like MM.

    Its not for my lack of ability or skill to play it, I was forced to play marksman for an entire year before melee was brought up to surpass it. I'm just sick and tired of the build, and its extremely infuriating to see every single rogue in a warfront playing MM. Especially when they have no clue how to properly use all its tools and strengths. I'm talking about all the backpedaling, keyboard turning, clicking marksman I see by the droves in warfronts. There's less than a handful of skilled MM in North America, thats just sad.

    MM is unreal man u need to stop. it cant burst like melee but it can work its way around the battle field like no other providing strong burst and dps along with unreal utility. played right an MM takes the least amount of damage every wf and can still top the charts. played poorly yes mm blows

    Ok, keep telling noob rogues MM is best, and if you think i'm bad, thats also your own opinion, I have folks I play with that think of me as a solid addition to their team. But keep on with the MM mantra, because no other rogue soul is viable in pvp. /logic.
