    Default Marksman/Riftstalker/Bladedancer

    Nothing serious. Something I was playing around with on the tree calculator. http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#A...t9B5dGw/x|PuPM

    Just would like to see some opinions on it. Trash or Nah?

    Trash.

    Going that deep into RS in a dps oriented build is rarely worth it. Shoot to Kill is the strongest 5 points in the tree and you completely skipped it. Missing out on Free Recoil and Static Shock Munitions is also a huge loss to MM dps. Without 2/2 Shadow Mastery you cannot maintain Ruthless Stalker. etc, etc.

    I'd ask what your original intent was with this spec but honestly, even after optimizing the point allocations there aren't any niches a hybrid like this would excel in.

    Thanks for responding. I was just watching an old rift video where they were showing off the rogue class and it reminded me of the teleporting sniper spec. Like I said was just messin around and nothing serious. I pretty much figure it'll never work unless they come out with a patch that magically allows it to lol, but if anyone has any thoughts i'm open ears.

    this shouldnt be in "guides" section.

    as Stihl mentioned, too many points are spent in RS, when only 16 or 8 would be necessary.

    I think I see what you were going for here, so try something like this. This comes out to play in CQ/WFs once in a blue moon. Deals decent enough damage with the survivability to not be instantly melted by focus fire.

    Would definitely help us make suggestions if we knew the purpose you're after.

    I saw a vid on youtube introducing the rogue and they had a teleporting sniper spec. I thought it was a cool idea but the way the trees are set up there doesn't seem to be a way to remake it and make it viable. Too bad though because it was a good idea. But it seems like there is just zero synergy between the two souls. I'm hoping they make a update that magically makes them synergize.

    before SL and Nightmare and such, they did have a bit more synergy between a few of the solos then they do now. RS was commonly used in many specs, because of a finisher it has low in the point tree ( six points if I remember right ) as well as the blinks.
    Trion's way of trying to balance out the sub classes first moved it farther up the tree, then ofc removed it all together because it is no loner there, add in the way that points in certain solos gives you passives of different types, yeah, kinda killed off the blinking sniper :P

    pretty sure I know which video you are talking about, lol worse yet, I remember when it came out
