    Default Is an Assassin/Marksman build viable ?

    Was wondering.

    U know, the type of sin with full stealth but with some great ranged dps thrown in, or is it gimping the sin part too much. Bd a better choice with sin ? (will lose and decent rdps i know)

    Not only is it viable, but it is one of the most common builds out there

    Works for both melee, and ranged. Assassin has good passives for Marksman, and all the movement speed buffs/ranged root of the Marksman help to catch targets for melee.


    Edit:

    That said, it's a 1v1 gank build. I laugh at people in Warfronts with this build.

    In Warfronts it's basically just a really annoying Marksman: Plenty of ranged pew pew that, if you ignore, is gonna bite you in the ***. Consequently, if you target the MM/Sin, he'll just blind you and dash away.

    I have tried Marksman/Assasin - but i am a bit unsure which 3rd soul would benefit the other 2 souls?.. Any advice?

    10 pts in Nightblade is always good for DPS. Riftstalker for attack power

    Seven points in Ranger also gives a lot in return.

    I am currently Marksman/Assassin/Riftstalker. I went with Riftstalker for the extra attach power. I am about to unlock the NIghtblade soul so I am going to try that to see how I like it. I did have a lot of fun in the Warfronts last night as well as questing. Being able to use melee styles when the mob gets to you was actually nice and I loved the poisons as well.

    I went with Marksman/Ranger/Assassin since Ranger actually has talent in first tier of tree to increase your chance to hit. That's always a good thing.
