    Cool New to rogue, are these builds viable?

    Hi,

    Scenario: PVP Server, Questing, Rifts, 1v1 world pvp, duels, Small/Mid Group world pvp, warfronts

    Question: Which build do you think is most viable for the above scenario?

    Thoughts: I think all of my 3 builds have their pros/contras. Some take support but add damage and mobility. Some take Damage but add support. Some take both and add a lot of mobility. I think i will come down to experimenting with those builds and see for myself. But maybe some pro rogues here might want to comment!?

    Builds:

    #1 http://rift-planner.com/#?archetype=...17,5_&lang=eng

    #2 http://rift-planner.com/#?archetype=...17,5_&lang=eng

    #3 http://rift-planner.com/#?archetype=...17,5_&lang=eng

    You are stopping 1 point short of one of the bards best abilities.

    What are you trying here? To be a very durable bard, or a tank with lots of points into bard? Not taking bardic inspiration is going to force you to rebuff your motifs twice as often.

    Same as above. Its also very busy, you buff cadence but then specifically grab other ranged attacks.

    This almost looks like a rift/bard tanking build, but then you have things like rift prison and invigorate soul thrown in and i cant really see what you are going for.

    Keep in mind that due to the role system and the ability to switch builds, there is no point in making a build that is not focused on fulfilling a certain function. So trying to mix things up to be good for all situations is a waste of effort.

    Bard is a soul that really asks to be taken to max/near max points. The only people who don't are going to be rift/bard tanks.
