    Default Sabo and Poison

    Pretty short and simple thread. I play a Sabo main soul, and love the class; however, I would like to play 51 point sabo, and currently to benefit from the Assassin increased poison damage, you have to spend 18 points in the Assassin tree. Does anyone agree that they would like poison buffs to maybe drop a tier?

    I'd like to play a 51point rifstalker but I also would like permanent stealth. I think they should drop the assassin stealth talents down to the early tiers so I can have everything please.

    Stealth is not relevant to a Riftstalker, and I was making a valid point. No need to be a smart***

    No, you were making a 'I'd like the best of both worlds' point.

    Your basically saying you want all the advantages with none of the disadvantages. He was making a legitimate point about how stupid the idea was

    Because that wouldn't completely screw over the point of this update.

    Just go get the 15% damage bonus from RB. Don't understand why people think that the 15% damage buff deep into assassin is a buff for Sabo's lol. There are better soul combos to use out there with Sabo, Assassin is a wasted tree imo.

    No, but you can spend 5 points in Nightblade for the exact same buff. (Well, a very similar buff)

    I guess some people have a different idea of a valid comment than I do. You can't just go 'hey I think it would be balanced if I could have all this cool stuff and a talent capped mainbuild'. The whole objective of the soul tree system (whether it works or not is a different story) is that you make sacrifices in some area's for benefits in others. You balance your tree's to get the most from the point you have. You don't go 'wow if I could have the 15% NB combo builder damage + the 15% poison damage from sin and a 51point Sab build that'd be the most awesome thing ever, so lets drop the sin poison buffs down so I can do that'.

    There. 51 points into Sab with pretty high increased damage.

    But no way in hell should they be able to max out Sab and get the +15% poison upgrade. Sure, less damage than the build I posted. But they then get Stealth and Incapacitate. The point of this patch was to put them on the same level as other players and have to make sacrifices for their builds. By lowering Poison Potency by one tier, they would get a good damage boost, the ability to instantly land five charges, and the ability to incapacitate their next target while they're waiting for Rapid Setup to recharge.
