    Default Looking for a marksman build.

    So! I've been trying to decide what kind of marksman i wanna be, next time the game is up. I've been thinking about going marksman/sab/riftstalker. But i'm curious to what kind of builds, others have made.

    I am really looking forward to this build.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...o.Vz.0VMftcboz

    It can be a adjusted, a bit, and still be based around the basics.


    Lots of damage, but not the most, as you aren't subbed as a ranger..but I wanted more mobility.


    Advanced poisons, infinite stealth, improved stealth...


    Basically, I want to mash down someone's hp, and let the dot's finish them..while I, either restealth or wtf stun anyone who comes near me thereafter with a plethora of CC

    Just curious how you intent to use Sab in conjunction with Marks.

    Knowing your concept of the actual playstyle of the class would help in giving you advice.

    I know this was directed to the OP, but to interject, the only viable way I see using Sab as a sub, is the base Stun and the +Dex

    Which, IMO, I do not think it's worth wasting an entire soul, the dex is incredible..but I feel that other souls can give far more utility and damage alike.

    I prefer a max dps Marksman type
    PVP version: MM32/Sin24/NB10 http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...0udR.0VMfxcboz
    Highlights:Close Quarters Combat, Hasty Departure, On the Double, Getaway, Lethal and Leeching Poison, Decent AoE, Strafe, openers/finishers buffed 15-45% depending on skill, Stealth, 4sec stun, 20% armor pen, basically lots of get away tools and nice deeps at the same time.
    PVE version http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...zVhbR.0VMcxcbm

    ps This is the build I want to test next. http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M....VcbqV0skqz.Vh
    Cadence will be super buffed from the Nightblade tree, 30% more self heals from RS tree, massive attack power for better heals/dmg bonus and all the grp buffs you will ever need. Plus you can go stealth or bomb people from far with 15% buffed dmg. 2 weapon enchanments that are buffed by 30% dmg. Great bonuses to all non-physical dmg and heat retention for bigger cadence heals, 25% dmg on CP building skills that are magic based (cadence, fiery spike, twilight force stc.) and 45% dmg finishers with Coup de Grace. This is not including bard buffs

    This is my PvP spec i came up with on they fly:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...khubo.xG0hxmoo

    here is my MM specific build:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...hxoVziudR.V0xz

    Here is my MM/Ranger build with some assassin:
    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...hxoVziudR.V0xz

    Here is me MM/Assassin/Ranger build: It focuses on heavy MM with little Ranger, but 20% increased crit dmg from assassin.
    The more I look at this one I think it is the weakest due to pet dmg being low without alot of points in Ranger.

    I see MM as a viable sub for a sab main spec, but not vise-versa.

    With they way other Souls are I only see Sab being good for Melee rogues, and thats stretching it.

    I'm going 32 Marks, 32 Riftstalker, 2 Bard.

    I do not suggest ever going 32 Marks, 32 other DPS. You'll simply have too many skills that you won't be using, and it's a waste of points.

    I think the best combination for a Marks (in fact any other rogue class) would be a Riftstalker since it has immense durability. Riftstalker is also a perfect counter to melee enemies.

    Bard is also another combination, but points should only be invested in their buffs and passives.

    Infiltrator is another passive-heavy tree that should be considered.
