    Why not put one point into improved stealth?

    Not a fan of the split focus between melee/ranged

    A lot of them do, yes, but you also have a good number of "wasted" points IMO. Improved Savage Strike and Improved Final Blow. You could take those and put them into things like Magnify Pain, Improved Stealth, Blinding Powder, Foul Play, Silent Footsteps.

    Also not a huge fan of the poison talents. Potency is decent but not great for this build, and mastery is a waste I think.

    You want at least 32 points in Marksman for Reload. Master Archer isn't great. You want Keen Eye, especially for PvP. Sharpshooter and Sniper training can be good, but after you get all the essentials, like Repelling Shot, On The Double/Getaway. Get Rapid Extrication.

    If this is a PvE soul, Ranger needs to be at least 24 for higher level stuff. If it's PvP, just drop it entirely. Improved Quick Shot is a waste because you'll be using Swift Shot as your spam. And if you were to use Ranger for a PvP Marksman build, it would be for Crippling Shot, which you didn't take.

    Lots of improvements can be made. It would help to know what you're going for

    Thanks for the info I appreciate the feedback. I'm mainly going for PVE and would eventually like to do instances and raids.
