    Default Beta 7 Changes & Your Build

    Noticed that ZAM has updated the Soul Trees with some changes, that I only assume will be live in the Beta starting tomorrow.

    I was planning my 50 build to be, MM (36) / Assn (22) / Ranger (8). But if these changes are in fact true, I am really going to have to consider going (51) into Marksmen, which is going to be really tough to give up several abilities in my other souls.

    Is this going to change any others proposed builds in a big way?

    I am sure they updated other souls as well, http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html

    I can see what you mean but that sniper's pedistal is really only good for PVE. In PVP you won't ever stand on one spot for long.
    l
    So use the 51 MM spec in PVE and use the spec with more utilities for PVP. But now the leap backwards skill requires 40 points and that could be good to get. But then you can't have 22 points in assassin for imp stealth and stun and also pick up the snare shot from ranger with 6 points. So ye there you have to chose.

    My Ranger/MM/NB build is going to have to divest some from MM (probably the chance to do bonus Air damage talent) into Ranger because of King of the Jungle.

    My Bard/NB/BD build is untouched.

    Sniper's Pedestal is a terrible terrible change.

    Having to spect so heavily in PvP skills (9 to 14 points) to get a "most-have" PvE skill is ******ed.

    Other than that, I don't really have a build until the head-start.

    I love PvP, but my main focus at 50 will be PvE. Many of the Assassin skills I had were damager modifiers....yes some were CC, which are more situational for PvE, but still very useful. I guess I will have to see if the Assassin Damage modifiers will outweigh the Snipers Pedestal or vice versa. The pedestal is also somewhat situational, in that it will have very little value when dealing with encounters that require a lot of movement.

    Does the site include a changelog or do we stumble over the changes when we use the calculator?

    So you'd rather have an OP PvE build? They need to balance these things.

    There's a reason why you got to invest so heavily in Marksmen to get it. It's because it's a powerful ability. 25% is the rank 1 ability. We don't even know if there are several more ranks. For all we know the Rank 2 ability can be 30-35% increase.

    Smart ***, Ive already seen that Spanish site, 3-4 days ago now. Interesting thing about games are, stuff may change on a daily schedule, using 4 day old LEAKED notes is not nearly the same as anything official, or more recent.

    Default changes...

    Anyone notice that serrated blades now says melee weapons? I wonder if that is true or if it still works with ranged like in B6.

    Learn some manners.

    Maybe you should click the link. He was being condescending, hence the reaction.

    Sorry, couldn't resist, but I also didn't want to post a link right to the page. You're right, they may change, but considering that ZAM waited until today to make the changes to their soul calculators makes me believe most of these will be sticking.

    Alas, I find the changes not too exciting so I'm clinging to the hope that there will be more, or different ones.
