    Default Rogue dungeon leveling

    Hey recently returned from launch I have a level 33 rogue and wanting to level doing ample dungeons to get a feel for group play in this game. Was wondering what would be some good tank, support, and DPS specs for group leveling? I know anything would probably be fine DPS in random leveling dungeons but want to feel like I am giving a solid contribution.

    No, but seriously, support is useless in dungeons. Maybe have a spec with some points dumped in Bard in case the healer is completely incompetent, but realistically, you'll never use such a spec.

    Doesn't matter much while leveling. Ranger or Marksman are probably the safest bets, but really, all of the DPS souls are badly incomplete until higher levels, and I don't even know which one is the least broken when you don't have the deeper talents/roots.

    I will say, though, that Bladedancer is probably the most awful at low levels, since you don't get 100% dance uptime until level 50 (at which point it becomes quite good).

    As a Rogue you should have a Bard spec, but only so that you can queue as support for dungeons, though don't use it just keep it putting points into it as you level.

    Ok thanks guys I did just go with some of the preset specs including a bard spec and got into a group as support. So I went full bard and tried playing it and it was the most painfully lame and boring think I have ever done in any game ever.

    They told you not to actually use bard in a dungeon ...
    also, low-level play is not very indicative of high-level play

    low lvl dungeons including 50(old)experts have bulk of their HP in the trash.
    aoe spec will deffinetly speed up the dungeon.
    most fast exp dung farm groups require sustained aoe dps.
    Tact (40tact/36mm)
    (battle remote+power core will make tactician viable for bosses)
    or BD (no tact)
    use sprint to keep up with fast moving tanks and use blade and soul parity+hundred blades and blade tempo+dancing steel (this should get you started)

    this is true up to 50 experts.
    (by far the best exp from 51 till 65 without the patron+160 vial nuke thru storyline quests)

    also haveing the tank preset is recommended.

    ps. st spec required for 61+ normals and experts.
