    I would go with something more like this plenty of free points to spend at the end however you want.

    You do need to be able to do some damage. Your cc isn't good enough to lock people completely down... so you need some damage.

    If you want to be a really tough tank who can control opponents that is more riftstalker + assassin + bladedancer.

    Max riftbarrier is NOT an option NOT to take for pvp tanking. You NEED it. You also NEED to get improved rift barrier as without it your shield doesn't work on magic. Rift guard is not nearly as good for pvp.

    NOTE: Remember the riftstalker class has been changed a bit in beta 7.

    As the previous guy mentioned, Rift Guard isn't as viable in PvP, I suggest switching it to Rift Barrier.

    Other than that I don't see much to change. Maybe remove Shadow Assault since you want your DPS abilities to be from the Blade Dancer rather than the Riftstalker.
