    Default Is Assassin still viable for poisons with ranged?

    i know serrated blades won't work with ranged weapons. but poisons should still work.

    this is a quick and messy build, but i was thinking of something like:

    or would you be better off going into nightblade?

    That's good. The real question is whether or not to go up to magnify pain. Wastes 3 points in the 2nd tier but gives such good passives.

    I had a similar idea - I'd just take Puncture instead of 1/3 Cloak and dagger.
    I figure that an instant attack that generates 2 CP and a bleed to boost ranger pet damage is a decent attack - if you ever find yourself in close quarters combat

    Or take the 1/3 point and get the blood raptor

    Yes, I forgot about that:
    I'd definately get the blood raptor - any particular reason why you omitted that pet ?

    the one extra point in assassin was to get lethal poison. need 8 points in that soul for that root. seeing that you can use 2 poisons at once, i figured it was better to have 2 than just 1 :P.

    the blood raptor i didn't get, because i was spec'ing this mostly for pvp, and the raptor is a pve grouping pet. if i was to run an instance, i would spec for the raptor, and ditch the points in marksman for on the double and get away.

    If your stacking crit the Lethal is definitely worth it. It's pretty cheap to get there.
    Tell you what, you remove the dps from Warriors and make them tanks only, and I'll stop being a Rogue tank. Until then, we finally have multiple roles instead of one. Get over it..
