    Default Is this rogue build (NB/RS) any good?

    Guys and gals, I need some feedback on this build:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...s.qGxhtRMo0z.M

    Or is this rather a case for the "Build Competition - The horrible Rogue"?

    Critics and suggestions are highly appreciated.

    The new patch annihilated Riftstalker.

    naw, it actually buffed them up a lot, people are mad that they can not get the full effects of riftstalker mitigation with like 18 points, if you spend full in the riftstalker tree in the end you end up with much better endurance and mitigation.

    In all honesty it was imbalanced since nearly everyone in pvp went some riftstalker for the op abilities with little investment like the crit damage reduction and rift barrier. People were getting way to much defense for only 18 points when pure riftstalkers didn't get much after that in survivability.

    Its only thier Guardian Phase that got buffed, which has a 50% dmg debuff. Good if you want to tank but annoying if you wanted to be a teleporting rogue.

    The nerf to the 30% dmg reduction after being critted is good though, was way op.

    actually at 51 points rift guard absorbs 5 % more damage than before and and a much higher total damage amount, if only it lasted 60 seconds.

    6% flat damage reduction is much better for actual tanking than they crit avoidance which 95% of its use comes in pvp 100% pre 50.

    guarded steel now massively buffs armor and hate generation where before it was marginal at best.

    It just pretty much kills the 18 point rs/other/other builds that everyone was using in pvp that were op when you have dps classes with the survivability of a tank.

    Tanks are still useful in warfronts if your team knows how to play and heal especially in black garden.

    in no way should a pve tank soul grant more pvp survivability and utility than the pvp soul that was just stupid.

    I made some changes into the rift stalker part of your build, not sure if this is a pvp build or what kind of build you were going for. The changes i made are for shifting buffs, so you can use your shifts more often, and get good dmg / dmg reduction buffs after using them. This build is good for survivability, dps and staying next to your enemy.

    I'd try out something more like this. As a general rule I feel its good to max out a talent you select in most cases unless the main benefit it gives is static regardless of how many points you put in it

    You must remember that what you see on planners and rift character talent things is that everything is subject to change. Exspecailly since there's Beta and Alpha testing. Also there is what two weeks before the game can be prelaunched.??

    If your not sure just make one during beta. First hand expereince is the best type of experience. Testing is what beta is so...

    Default You guys are awesome

    Thanks a lot, it is always good to read about other peoples opinions
    and utilize their expertise. So far, in all my previous mmo's I've played
    healers, so I am inexperienced in Rogue setup.

    Hope to see ya'll in game soon
