    Default [PvP] Assassin at level 50.

    Here's a build I have been working at for some time now:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M....VI0f0o.xx0R0b

    It has the following:

    On-demand stuns (Paralyzing Strike, Foul Play)
    Slow (Malicious Strike)
    Proactive "Polymorph effect"-breaker on demand (Enduring Brew)
    Three different gap closers (Shadow Shift, Shadow Assault and Shadow Stalk)
    MS-effect on-demand (Anathema)
    Ways to escape (Slip Away, Cleanse Soul+Shadow Shift, Blind)
    Ways to CC (Incapacitate, Blind)
    Trinket (Break Free)
    Self-heals (Enduring Brew and Rift Scavenger)
    (Hopefully) decent damage (Murderous Thoughts, Knock Knock, Unseen Fury, Cruel Vengeance and Magnify Pain)
    Timeable, reuseable silence (Pardon the Interruption)

    Constructive criticism, experiences with and against similiar builds and general comments are most welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'll be honest, I'm not sold on Infiltrator..when it is incorporated into most PVP builds there are aspects it provides, that are awesome, but negates some simple facts:


    What are you going to do about range attacks? No ranger/mm/nb means you can only rely on a few snare/root breaks and RS teleports..where yes, 1v1 that is enough, but once they are on CD you are screwed.

    Of course, this is all subjective mind you.

    I'll be playing Assassin/Ranger/Riftstalker

    Heavy Riftstalker, but more heavy into Assassin.


    What good is going more damage if you can't reach the enemy?

    I have three teleports and Blind. Should be enough to close (in theory at least).

    The reason for Infiltrator is the "Cloak of Shadows", the on-demand reduced healing and the (on paper) extremely solid "free" interrupt.

    Nothing obviously, which is why I was looking to hear from people who have experimented with going Assassin and quite a lot of 'ports from Rifty.

    Would definately go Sin/NB/Inf.

    You want the sneakyness of a sin and the stun locks etc.
    You want the crits and other epicness of the inf and u cant live without the NB for ranged attacks and more importantly ranged slow and a ranged finisher if target runs and tries to kite you.

    Pvp'ed with the buildup to this at lvl 30 and worked very nicely (scaled down version without inf and some other of the very latest points.

    Thanks for the input.

    I will tinker a bit with your points, but will certainly give the soul combination it a try come launch. I think I'm still a bit hooked on pairing an aggressive soul with Riftstalker, but I will of course go with what works the best as long as it's still fun to play.

    I am looking more of this spec, very similar to OP's spec.
