    Default Marksman/Riftstalker/Nightblade or Marksman/Riftstalker/Assassin

    Marksman/Riftstalker/Nightblade or Marksman/Riftstalker/Assassin?

    I am a heavily pvp focused player and my main playstyle for pvp would be using the marksman skills, with riftstalker skills like health regen and the teleport for extra utility.

    My question is, for a backup melee soul, what would be more useful for straight up melee combat? i played Marksman/Riftstalker/Nightblade in beta, but a lot of the nightblade skills seem to be focused around ranged attacks that i dont need (because i am a marksman)

    Also, i was wondering about the ranger soul - is it worth picking up along with marksman? (keeping in mind i would have to drop riftstalker or my melee soul to pick it up).

    Any other suggestions are welcome, just please try and back up your statement with good reasoning.

    Cheers.

    More Crowd Control gives you time to get out of melee range.

    Nvm: somehow the calculator let me put points in the 15-20 range without actually having 15 points yet

    Seems like an excellent build Cinerus.
    Probably will go for that one in headstart.

    i would like to know why i would take nightblade aswell as assassin instead of something like ranger or maybe riftstalker for more utility.

    apologies if the answer is obvious, i haven't had a good look at it yet

    thanks all
