    Default Rifstalker in my bard build? It's more likely than you think!

    Here we have me, with the shard, on top of our spawn point. Yeah, they can't get there. Full offense boys!

    Notice damage and healing. This was in Codex, at the Codex.

    Granted I can't kill much, but I sure am the hardest thing to kill on the battlefield, and anyone near me is reaping the benefits.
    Success = survivability / time.
    Survivability = (health + mitigation + heals) / dps done to tank
    Time = target's total health / group dps

    we still lost though. One star player can hardly make up for a subpar team.

    I'm toying with a bard/nb/rs build. Should be fun.

    Bard/RS has always been the top full support bard pick.

    I dont see why anyone would not have RS in a pvp build tbh, just look at the bottom 2 tiers, +20% armour, +15% end, +15% attack power.

    Seems like everyone was thinking the same thing as myself when they read the thread title....

    he obvisouly has a minimum of 26 in Rift, so are these 'full support' builds a 34 bard/32 rift combo?
    or 34/26/6?

    34/32 is what I'm running: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...kkR.Vfdoi0skqz

    I'm also surprised at the comments saying they're the top/obvious pairing for a support Bard, considering 90% of the threads here talk about going 51/44 Bard, the rest in Nightblade, and 0 in Riftstalker for Shadow Shift. Prior to this thread I think I'd seen two people (excluding myself) opting for a Bard/Riftstalker split spec.

    The people that talk about 51 point builds haven't actually played this game yet. If they had pvp'd in this game they would realize you can't give up the mobility skills from other trees.

    it looks like this: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...ko.xIxhzVzookM

    It takes about 3 people focusfiring and ccing to kill me. Otherwise I just stand their and play my lute in their face. Looking at about 6.5k hp with buffs and without raw endurance gear at level 42.

    Are those 3 people complete tools? Decent attempt still have 8 talent points of no use included.

    meh. i've always assumed that if you don't have 18 points at the very minimum in RS as a bard, you're doing it wrong.

    Virtuoso may keep you alive for a bit, but memory capture wins games. Black Garden and wsf get destroyed by mem cap. About to die in the middle? teleport to your tree for easy recap. Ninja cap in their base? Blink 50 feet away, two teleports later and I'm halfway across the map while you're still mounting up.
