    Plan on going the following build.

    The following build has a lot of HP, absorption shield, CC , break stun, reduce armor.
    Which I find important in PVP. Build is in context for duels.
    Focused on surv mostly, dmg is second.

    - Went impr Qik shot, cause there some assassin rogues out there.
    - Went Master Archer, cause its air dmg which I think avoids armor= bye bye warrior
    - Points swap between: Single mind Focus/Inc fire power/Killer instinct =depends on crit chance.
    - I know rift favors melee but you might encounter close combat. For ex if VS range (pop ShadwStalk,Close QuarterCombat)

    -If the outgoing dmg is to low might swap rift for else...

    I honestly believe every rogue should have a riftstalker as one of their soul specs. The advantages of 1-2K more HP and increased armor values far out weigh the stat buffs/increases.

    Note: Keep in mind that class abilities have changed for beta 7

    very true. But didn't marksman get nerfed as well as assassin? I was maybe thinking along the lines of Riftstalker/Nightblade/bladedancer - Nightblade and Riftstalker bing my most focused souls

    You can certainly try that - Marksmen is just the way I play and I enjoy ranged DPS.

    The Marksmen nerfs really only concern the reduction in damage to empowered shot and deadeye. How much of a reduction is the concern. The other nerfs, not so much.

    How about more melee non-pet rogue builds? Like, ya know, rogues rather than hunters... or are they not viable in this game?

    If u want a melee rogue .. you definatley want a bladedancer


    The spec i chose focuses on very quickly overcoming your opponent. If you wanted to be able to take dmg i would suggest pairing with bard and riftstalker

    I was really thinking about bladedancer, but what about Nightblade/Riftstalker? Nightblade being the more focused spec
