    What amazes me is a fellow rogue with ~130-150 AP and ~150 crit under me, running 32Sin/34RNG is beating me by 300-400 dps and he is not even having a single HK piece. Has anyone tried melee fighting side by side with the raptor?
    I did on the pts with sin crystal, it was meh.

    How about Ambidextrous Soulstone? Is it a good thing to have or a waste of a sigil slot?

    Don't spend the inscribed on it if you have not already. It is worse than a normal lesser.

    So I thought Tho I should have asked erlier anyway, will replace it with some essence. I thought 30 dmg added to 600ish is like 5% increase and QS being around 35-40% of total dmg dealt that's like 2% of total increase.

    Ya the problem with the greater is it adds a flat damage amount that does not scale with anything. The AP scaling and Ambidextrous in BD will net you more damage.

    This has probably been discussed but ... Whetstones or Lightning glyph? Which one is better for us?

    All DPS specs use whetstones, glyph is best used for Riftstalker.

    Default Nice Guide

    New rogue here and I was curios how I'm suppose to keep a dance up at all times.I just tried the rotation and I seem to have about 15 seconds to wait for BSP to come off cooldown after I run all of the dances through.Is there something I'm missing?Also I found this spec on the forums and was wondering how it compared to the 51 BD.http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...0Ghoo.x0x0V.-0

    You need the 4pc bd synergy crystal to keep dances up at all times.

    Specs are going to compare differently depending on your skill, gear, and specifically which crystal you are using.

    I use karuulalert. Set the icons to "omfgbig" and you wont miss a buff/debuff never no more.

    I've found myself in PTS ironing out the BD spec with 1.11 coming out soon. They made PS instant cooldown like QS so you can use either after a KS so the rotation is now different.

    This guide has a lot of detail for the min/maxers, would be nice to see it re-surface with 1.11 since BD will be our best ST spec.
