    the sab is simply for the 15% dex increase, seemed to effect the heals of cadence more than other options i tried...

    My build involves me rolling with my buddy, Einhorn. He will be Ranger/Marksman/Assassin. Both of us will have perma stealth. Roaming the world getting into trouble; it's what we do.

    I was wondering about that. Would the Dex increase there help more than the damage bonuses in Nightblade? I am just trying to find that little extra to boost my heals by putting 5-ish points into a third soul.

    im confused, i have nightblade as my second soul, and have 5 points in it as well, the 5 points in sab helps more then any other 5 points i could put into nightblade, yes, atleast at lv26 on the experiments i saw...

    Offensive support:

    - 5 in assassin gives me, the hardest hitting melee opener, the hardest hitting melee closer and a poison

    Leveling with the wife:

    --high ranger go go tanky pig

    I'm also playing with and refining a defensive support and a NB build because there needs to be more NBs! :P

    we all have different play styles, i was hugely effective in pvp as bard/marks/sab, and didn't die very often at all.

    An actual support build.

    Survivability, and buffs. Theory being the longer you can stick around, the more you can buff/heal.

    I don't understand a lot of these builds I'm seeing.

    Because we all have our own play style
    I've never been a rogue in any MMO, never been a bard anywhere. NEver been a bow class, but suddenly all of them are fun when i mash them all together.

    I'm also smart enough to know that my builds will change as things progress, so I'll probably end up heavy riftstalker as well.

    But, we are all bards, but my bard isn't any better or worse than your bard, it's just different, and that is awesome.

    Right, but for me, Bard and Assassin are musts. I want the tricks in the assassin tree. So I have room for 1 soul and 8 points. Thus the 8 in NB.

    My goals for bard are pretty much dumping everything into it I can that's actually useful to a group. I already for beta have two other roles unlocked for pvp and dps.
