    Default NB, i know they dont exist but...

    Ok, i have been playing assassin up to lvl30 and got extremely bored with it. So i bought another role and went NB main, im absolutely loving the class. My main problem is in PvP, on my assassin i get killed alot but always get top 3 in KB's in WF and can solo almost any class in open world.

    My current NB build is http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MipT.VhtR0ogRko.V0x
    The problem is i seem to be constantly CC'ed and only have one form of CC myself on a 30sec CD (dark containment) im finding it close to impossible to kite while im snared 100% of the time.
    Im realy loving the class and want to stick with it, can anyone please PM me if u dont wanna post builds/rotations here ( your secret will be safe with me )

    Thnx in advance if any help is forthcoming.

    Good you figured out what you are lacking and thats mobility. So find the soul that has good mobility and pick that as your 2nd soul or 3rd. Thats the beauty of this game.

    yeah i see what ur saying, i was thinking of going NB/MM/RS.

    Does the ranged/range dammage u get from MM work fiery chains and fiery spike?

    twilight force has a snare and if you pick up sab you'll have their aoe slow as well. give rs/nb/sab a try. doesn't really get good until you get higher level for all the teleports in rs but having twilight force spam with the sab aoe slow does help.

    I want to keep NB my main, its a cool class and im loving it, it was realy either/or more mobility or CC i was looking for.

    I was also hoping any existing higher lvl NB's could give me some pointers, but even if they dont im gonna keep playing NB regardless... in the end i hope i get descent with the class.

    PS the offer is still open to any PM's

    I'm in the same boat. First Sabo, bored. Second, Sin, bored. Now NB.

    NB PvP is really about Twilight Force and sticking to the target you applied that ability to unless Ebon Fury is in use. Ebon Fury/Twilight Force spam every two minutes has killed a lot of opponents for me. NB plays just a little different in that you want to stay far enough away to NOT be in melee range except for a Dust Strike unless you are in AoE the Fang/flag mode. Mobility from Shadow Shift (RS) is usually enough since your snare from Twilight Force and some range does the rest.

    What is a Nightblade? Also, has anyone figured out why rogues only have 7 PvE souls while other callings have 8?

    I play the same souls as you for pvp, except I have less points in NB and more in RS, this adds more mobility and survivability. Plane shifting in the middle portion of the RS soul is just awesome if someone is trying to kite you. With Imp Twilight force and plane shifting, its every hard to get kited.

    Here is my build thus far, I'm at level 31.
