    I am thinking something along these lines but I would want to put more points into paragon to get force of will for the 60% increase in damage in follow up attacks

    Don't you think you will run into power issues though?

    Edit: actually, maybe not if your crit is high enough and you use planar blade...

    So you are using the Paladin tree as the third soul just for Touch of Life and armor buff? I'm assuming that you are going to duel wield.

    paladin tree for the 10% 1hand damage. If your equipping one handed weapons it effects your flamespears etc as well. Tested it.

    This looks interesting for sure but I'm wondering what kind of rotation you use. I've been running a heavy RB build with 10pts in paladin (currently level 40 even with headstart yeah I'm in no hurry jsut enjoying the game)

    But I noticed you have no rift surge & no riftstrike. Are there Paragon skills which make up for not having these?

    Then again I suppose there is no need for riftstrike if it's really a ranged warrior spec only.

    I rather like being able to warm em up with a few flamespears then riftwalk in & lay some smackdown so hopefully I'll find a build viable for that even with the 6s cooldown on FS so no nice point builder before i riftwalk

    this is mostly for Expert dungeons, There are a few fights that you just cannot be in melee range. (5k 360 degree cleaves) etc

    These fights warriors respec to a ranged only build and spam flamespears. with the cd on flamespear i am lookin at ways to adjust to the changes.

    my second post with the correct build looks to be promising though ima have to test it.

    Do Paragon dps synergize well with Riftblade? As a primary Riftblade most of my gear is end/dex/phy crit. I have jack for Str and AP because most of my attacks are non physical damage.

    Outside of crits being useful and both having parry their defensive talent to raise, not really.
    Riftblades are pure elemental attacks, Paragon talents are dual wield/physical based largely.
    Not much that the other side improves on.

    As anyone who has done any sort of testing at 50

    phys crit = dex > str > AP

    for riftblade and paragon this applies.

    AP doesn't scale your attacks very well at high end t2 gear. You deck out in high dex gear and the dps turn around is very noticable.

    The two specs talents do not synergize well. But it gives you 2 ranged attacks that build combo point on 6 second cooldowns. So you can effectively spam one macro for point building that will do a check for your ranged follow ups.

    then its just a matter of using SLI then either Fiery Burst or Tempest

    On the flip side. You can also put 8 points into Reaver and get Necrotic Wounds. Necrotic Wounds is still a spammable 20m range ability. They haven't posted that it will also have a 6s cooldown. So you can technically spam Necrotic Wounds and use it as an AP builder.

    26 Paragon gets you another ranged attack.

    #show path of the raptor
    cast path of the raptor
    cast path of the hurricane
    cast path of the wind
    cast flamespear


    All 4 of these are on a 6 second cooldown, so you can keep this up forever. They also all give attack points, so you can use them to keep up SLI, Shifting Blades, and Fiery Burst in between.

    Still a work in progress, but you should be able to easily put out 600 dps from ranged. You shouldn't have to worry about energy ever. This is not for PvP, since i skipped all the good pvp talents.

    Out of curiosity, has anyone ever tried fork with Paragon ranged attacks? Would be nice to have a ranged AoE spec =P.
