    Default Bladedancer/riftstalker/bard your opinion.

    what do you guys thinks of this build.
    i am trying to make a class that would be strong for Survibility and Dps wise.
    i aint sure if its a good soul build but from what i saw its seem pretty decent and a good build
    strong on defence and being able to regain ur health and also having a good amount of dps.

    this looks pretty good, although id personally prefer to squeeze Dancing Steel in there somehow....not sure where the points would come from, as the rest looks pretty solid. nice build. ill give it a spin when headstart goes live.

    I tend to shy away from the hybrid specs. I don't like to be a jack-of-all master of none. I'm going RS/BD/Bard as well but I'm torn between these two builds.....

    I'd prefer max survival for PVE or PVP.

    I just hit 40 with a similar build. I went lighter on Riftstalker, because I got tired of the fall through the world bug with the planeshifting abilities. More in Blade than your spec and further into Bard. Great leveling build. High DPS, great survivability, nice buffs, some group healing ability, no downtime, can handle multiple adds and has escape abilities. Also fun to play.

    On my iPod touch ATM, but this afternoon I'll try to post the spec.
    One thing, it's a build that doesn't start to really take off until the mid 30s. I used a few other builds, some totally different soul combos, while leveling up. Some builds hold advantages in particular level ranges. People should be open to frequently mixing things up as they go. Helps to keep thing fun, too.

    Hey mate! This is my current build and I love it. Admittedly I haven't sunk many points into bard yet, focusing on tanking with riftstalker and blade dancer, but this plays great for me. Focus on your 'primary' role and use the best parts of your secondary trees to support your chosen style of play. Hybrids are what makes rift fantastic IMO.

    While I'm not going to say 'hybrids are bad' It is generally not a good idea to shirk tanking abilities for healing if you want to tank.

    I suggest moving those bard talents to Riftstalker, that way you can 'off-tank' so to speak.

    I like the idea of using bard just to 'kinda heal/support' but your also wanting to tank in a sense. I suggest picking one or the other.

    This is better. This gives you a LOT more endurance, more threat generated and 2 more useful abilities:

    Planar Refuge (yum)
    Rift Prison (6 seconds of no damage from 1 enemy)

    If you want an actual DPS/Support build that is similar:

    It's a very heavy energy build so I tried to pick up all the useful energy restoring abilities (Vivacity, Riff, Combat Efficiency. You do great damage and can use your bard skills in a pinch to buff/heal. Bard also gives 5 free combo points and awesome buffs.
