    Default I just drop my rogue

    it was a pain in the ***
    each fight with a mob almost left the rogue with 15-20% of health
    so if other mob attack the rogue is over.


    I pick : bladedancer/assassin/riftstalker

    and please don't reply to this telling you're a nOOb,

    I play rogue a lot in other MMOs like WoW & WAR

    I use the same three souls , Heavy Riftstalker, Light Bladedance. Assassin for the poison buff and it does fine.

    I personally go with nightblade / assassin / bladedancer and i do well, even when 2 mobs attack me, 3 would be pushing it, but its still do-able, any more then 3, i am a dead rogue, i personally find the rogue more easier to play then the warrior, the warrior dies too fast.....so much for plate. lol

    Also, in wow, i found the rogue had severe survival issues, when even facing a single mob, i ended up with less then 10% health each time, even when i started the fight with a massive crit, i gave up with wow's rogue, i went with feral druid, cat form, very similar to rogue in fighting style, just has vastly more survivability, but in this rift game, at the moment (pending any patches), the rogue has more survivability then the warrior by far.

    I am thinking the warrior needs a buff to its survivability or its damage, which ever one is more balanceable.

    I specced up to rifguard right away and he does pretty well. I can see where you feel squishy tho.

    I've played primarily nightblade with some riftstalker up to 33 and he does fine. A bit squishy, but he hits hard and fast.

    Noticed originally he didn't feel quite like the rogue's in those other games, just took some getting use to. Now I love.

    just take the Ranger soul and possibly put 5 points into it for the 5% crit, 0 points will give you a personal tank and it makes leveling as any kind of rogue super easy. i'm a melee Nightblade/Ranger/Assassin (mostly nightblade/assassin) and i have no downtime between fights thanks to my Razorbeast.

    i used Blade/ Rift/ Bard this time around and did fine. Now if i took 3 or more people on then yes i was dying faily quickly. But 1 or 2 was no problem at all.

    Playing ***/NB/Rift, almost all my points in Assassin. Can handle 3 mobs fine, 4 is pushing it. Really having fun playing this style in PvE.

    I have bin playing assassin up to lvl 28 now in beta6 and i have never had any problems at all, not even vs 2 mobs.
    i main Assasin and take Bladedancer for Side steps and Riftstalker for Shadow shift.

    Clearly a l2p issue.

    you can take on 3 or 4 with a riftstalker, just get rift scavenger, and have the shields up.

    this game is not as easy as WoW or WAR in the fact that the game doesnt build your character for you, if its not good enough, re-roll your character and put more strategy into your build. i promise if you think your build out good enough, you wont have a problem with a couple of mobs.
