    Rogues do it from behind.

    You may as well grab Twilight Force, it hits fairly hard, and your getting the +10% damage to it.

    Also, you may as well get Puncture for the extra combo point generation.

    The +4% physical damage from assassin is pretty worthless, but not a whole lot else to put points in, just take a point out and put it into puncture.

    Might want to get Flame Thrust just for situatioons where you cant be in melee.

    I agree. I'm not sure about the BD soul either... I mightgo RS for 15% attack power and 30% bigger heals (or 9% endurance) over 5% hit and 30% auto attack dmg. Side steps and Twin strike are pretty nice from that tree though... or take points from BD and put them into poison stuff in assassin.

    I am also intruiged by the auto attack dmg buffs, not sure how good they are yet though.

    A few alternative Nightblade builds for PvE:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...Mcx.iItRGqgRss - Completely drops Bladedancer and loses Magnify Pain in order to get Living Flame for crowd control.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...cbV.iIxMhogMss - Drops Bladedancer to get more Poison abilities.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...ss.VV0V0o.0V0c - Puts more points from Assassin into Bladedancer in order to get DEX+30% and Blade Tempo for +30% DMG on Physical Damage finishers.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...gMss.Vh.VV0V0o - Same as the previous build, but drops Assassin for Riftstalker. Takes more of a direct damage approach instead of a crit/bleed approach.

    What do you guys think about this:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MiVp.iItRGqgRss.VV.V

    Full Nightblade with some passive physical damage boosts, buffs, and the dodge/shadowstep from BD and RS

    Maybe more of a pvp levelling build than straight up PvE damage, but tons of utility and survivability with everything NB has to offer.

    I'm honestly a fan of passive damage bonuses as opposed to 40 more abilities I need to trigger. I'm already afraid to see what my hotbars are going to look like at 50. I'm going to have to get creative with my macros.

    I'm going full NB as well. I don't see anything at all wrong with that build. There might be some other talents in other souls that might increase your damage a bit but it would be minimal IMO. All the builds that were posted in this thread looked good to me. Def can not go wrong with talents that increase attack power, dex etc.
