    Default Marksman vs. Ranger

    I've been working on a few builds for raiding and I've come down to two different builds I like for a ranged rogue and I'm having difficulty deciding which would be more effective so I need some fresh eyes for a second opinion.

    Ranger/Marksman/Assassin:

    How about swapping the assasin tree for Sabatour tree, better aoe affects

    lol dont swap out assassin for aoe effects. It really depends on how much dps is added by the raptor pet. Also how easily it goes down.
    If my guild tag is red to you, then your already dead...

    In your 2nd build, you have 20 pts in assassin, and you only need to sacrifice 1 pt in another soul to get a permanent stealth. To me that ability would pay for itself more than any other single ability.

    Raptor pet has been pretty average.

    Razorbeast with charge still takes the cake

    3 points into opportunity are worth it.

    makes all your following combo under a 4 point in short instead of 5. Overall big dps increase as you can use your ranged finishers sooners.

    Along the souls you picked...i like this build:

    in regards to the ranger build.

    Think you need to consolidate some. you have points in several finishers/shots like you have the bonus for deadeye but also for headshot, pick one. that bonus is really only getting you empowered shot damage, opportunity would be better points for raiding since itll give you an instant combo.

    really need to (in my mind) focus a bit more, your going to have tons of attacks/finishers but how many different ones are you actually gonna use.

    Did you really not put any points into Doubleshot?

    Pretty simple here. Nightblade for 3rd soul. The added damage has nothing to do with melee and can be applied to the ranged attacks.

    WIth the recent major nerf to MM, I will try this specc, taking off MM and adding NB. More dps I think in raids.

    Solid!

    Yep, must have Doubleshot... And to the OP, you left off Static Shot and Crippling Shot? Need at least 1, I'll go for both since I will PvP most of my time...
