    Question Assassin/Bladedancer , but which other tree ?

    Hi all,

    I've decided on Assass main, then Bladedancer 2nd, but what should I choose for third ?

    Do I even HAVE to or SHOULD I choose a third ?

    Which one(s) would be the best please ?

    I think Riftstalker offers the best "0 level" ability for assassin/blade which is the teleport

    Riftstalker. Shadow Shift is awesome and with only 4 points you can get loads of endurance. You can get 17 to riftstalker easily no matter what melee build you're using. Survivability and mobility.

    Option 1:
    0 points in Riftstalker gives you a teleport ability
    2 points gives you a self endurance buff
    4 points gives you a finisher that increases your armor by 30%.

    Option 2:
    8 points in Nightblade will make your Incapacitate have a 20M range on it (PvP goodness)
    first tier 5/5 is another 15% more damage on combo point generating abilities
    second tier 5/5 is 15% more damage on finishers

    Option 3(early levels):
    4-5 points in Ranger will give you 4-5% crit, a Pig to tank for you and a heal for the pig.

    Thanks for the responses so far.

    Yeah I can see what you mean about 0 point Riftstalker teleport.

    I'm trying several sin/bd/.... chars.

    What about the NB 0 pointer for the ranged fire weapon. You see, I am toying with this atm because I know I get a free auto-ranged anyway but it takes ages. The NB is instant, stacks up to 3 times, and has a dot, which I though would be useful.

    Am I wrong, would you all say the 0 point riftstaker teleport is worth more than the 0 point NB insta-ranged with dot ?

    Good reply,

    Myself, Im still looking at a build that contains option 1 and 2 with Assassin. IE : Assa / Rift / NB. Why is it everyone seems to be going BD. Ive tried it and although its a great soul, does it really outway the build Ive mentioned that much?

    Perhaps later down the road once you get into the meat of Bladedancer. But during early game? Absolutely not. MUCH more utility in NB/Riftstalker.

    For pvp I cannot see how u can think of making a build without infiltrator soul.

    If this is a build for PvE i would STRONGLY recommend Sab. 15% dex on the first tree. Cant beat it out of any of the other specs.
