    Default Rogue PvP-Mythblaze Guide

    I will go over builds that are based around the use for PvP. I also will keep the general game play explanation simple and short.
    "Update" This is the new thread with the corrections from the previous Rogue PvP. I seem to be having issues with Rift Zam correctly tracking my build links and to display correctly.Point distribution will be listed for the talents. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to view my previous blunder of a guide.

    As someone completely new to rogues, this guide has helped a lot. Thanks, OP, I appreciate it.

    About the spec links not working, I think that's only for builds that include the PvP soul in them. I'm not having any trouble with any others.

    I'm going to putz around with this build. Thank you for posting it.

    Question for you... is the healing I'm seeing from Vampiric Munitions, or someone directly healing you? I don't know if I should be looking for - whether that's a heal with (VM) next to it, or a normal heal spell, and toned down and on you because of VM.

    If you turn the display on in your settings, you can see each heal from the siphon of Vampiric Munitions.
