    I love this solo NB/rift specc. and it kills fast enough
    the bladestalker is good too and is a similar idea. (its better AoE) but has a different playstyle.

    Specc
    http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree/b...FJh0/Tf/tv2aa8


    and macros i use are different that the front page:

    i use two different builders (I use a porting builder - to help keep up the planeshift buff)

    Opener
    #Show dark malady
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self energy manipulation
    cast dark malady


    Builder1 macro

    #show Shadow Assault
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self energy manipulation
    cast dusk to dawn
    cast death from the shadows
    cast dusk strike
    cast twilight force
    cast break free

    Builder2 macro (with port)
    cast @self energy manipulation
    cast shadow assault
    cast shadow blitz
    cast dusk to dawn
    cast death from the shadows
    cast dusk strike
    cast twilight force
    cast break free

    Single Target Finish

    #show Scourge of Darkness
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Scourge of Darkness
    cast Blazing Strike
    cast Flame Thrust

    single target Living FLAME finish - fast dps
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast touch of darkness
    cast living flame
    cast Blazing Strike
    cast death from the shadows
    cast Flame Thrust

    Aoe spam

    #show Shadow Blitz
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self energy manipulation
    cast Flame Blitz
    cast Shadow Blitz
    cast Rift Disturbance
    cast Fiery Chains
    cast Weapon Flare

    Masteries
    Planar Replenishment/Aggressive defence - whichever
    Adamant Resolve _ halves yours best abiliity (DFTS) cooldown!!!
    Sprinters Guile (or boundless energy: if you fighting lots of elites in a small area)
    Through the Ether
    Energy manipulation


    Buffs:

    Curative Engine
    Fell Blades
    Hellfire Blades (smoldering blades on elites)
    Planebound Resilience
    Stalker Phase
    Use Vampiric Essence for soloing (death planar attunement)


    thats about it.

    @ blitze :

    exactly what are you trying to do with this spec?

    A : 1-60 ST levelling? its too slow
    B : 60-65 ST levelling? its too slow
    C : 1-60 AOE levelling? its too slow
    D : 60-65 AOE levelling? it dies too fast
    E : solo play at 65? its too slow
    F : PvP? you'll not be killing anyone, but you might survive a bit longer.
    G : dungeons? not enough damage.

    21 riftstalker is useless.

    planar refuge? useless. 0.08% uptime is useless.
    rift guard? useless. 50% of 40k (assuming quest-only gear at lvl 60) = 20k. 5% of 20k= 1000 damage absorbed. piddling.
    shadow assault? useless. you're gonna be running in stealthed.
    4/5 toughened soul? useless. use 2/5 and put the other 2 points in NB.
    flame blitz? useless. unless you plan to pull 3+ mobs (and you'll die).
    enkindle? useless mobs will die before you even get to 5 FS stacks.
    ignited weapons? useless. your weapon damage is too low while levelling.

    other than the opener, your macros are terrible, to say the least.
    1. dusk strike/TF are everywhere, you'll run out of energy too fast.
    2. why do you have DFTS in 2nd finish macro?
    3. aoe macro is terrible, you should be spamming FC/WF ONLY for AOE. plus, why do you have flame blitz at the top!??!? its a finisher, FFS.
    4. take out break free. use it separately.

    please DONOT use living flame like that. living flame is best used at the START of a fight to get quick fiery spike stacks on (multiple) enemies.

    where is ebon fury? you've also not provided any macros, for when you reach low energy.

    fell blades are terrible, use ebon blades and smoldering only.

    you dont mention twilight transcendence, which is the BEST defensive cooldown you could have at that stage.

    http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree/b...GFaik/Tf/tr24g
    ^ superior spec.
    if you want more dps, use this one :
    http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree/b...ixk52o8/t|__TM
    (THIS SPEC IS ONLY FOR SOLOING/LEVELLING, donot, DONOT use for actual dps in groups/anywhere, since this build is tuned around quickly fighting and killing single mobs within 10-15 seconds, it does not have ebon fury, hence it'll SUFFER a huge dps loss if you use it on a mob for more than 1 minute.). use lethal + leeching. swap 1 point from Advanced Flanking to 1 point in Enduring Brew, if you feel like you need the healing (its pretty powerful, 10-20k crits when used with Adamant Resolve mastery, but leeching+ vampiric should heal you well enough). energy mastery is for even more dusk strikes. swap with EM or PV depending on preference. Guide? use the normal 38/38 nb/sin guide in the guides section.

    if you want EVEN more dps, use 61 assassin with malicious+lethal+leeching.

    I posted it as a lvling build.50-65 really when i had very poor gear. it was fast enough for me and felt very safe.

    Once i hit 65- (or perhaps 64) i got better blue gear (earring slots, etc.) and i dropped this specc entirely and switched to 61 NB (and with twilight trancendance and flicker even troublesome situations were fine.)

    I understand the point allocations are probably not perfect and that rift could be lowered. I never tested anything, and just used Grandpas build as a base and carried on with it.

    the aoe macro is just for me being a lazy person, its a one-button spam for the occasional quest(IAs) where u get lots of low hps mobs. if you want AoE regularily, you don't really pick NB. I enjoy bladestalker(leveling) bladedancer(endgame) for that or if you enjoy the one button spam then sabo brilliant.

    Dfts is used within living flame as cos it procs a fiery spike. and yup, when your soloing you have to use living flame at the start of the fight, otherwise its likely the mob will die before you've finished.

    And yes i forgot to mention that:
    twilight transcendence is used when you have low health
    ebon fury is used when you have low energy

    i meant ebon blades, not fell blades. sorry for the confusion.

    well problem is, NB needs atleast 2 full 5-point finishers to get to max dps (thanks to SoD), or you'll be using your hard hitting skills with low Heat Retention stacks, reducing their dps.

    assassin does not have this limitation.

    i'd ONLY recommend your spec if you are fighting an elite or a tough mob for a longer than average time (like 30-40 seconds).

    I think the core of many solo builds is

    4 tactician (curative engine)
    8 rift (3/3 boosted recovery)

    then you can play,
    bladedancer/NB/Assasin depending on which playstyle you prefer.

    So you can play whatever you want as long as you have SL souls. If you dont, you are SOL

    your 65 build is missing DFTS and living flame.. which are very good skills!
    also you picked planar vortex which is useless.

    i'd probably go for this build

    that build is good solo

    also the
    Bladestalker preset is great too..

    but honestly
    pure DPS speccs do solo content very well.
    e.g.
    61 bladedancer/assassin/NB
    or 38/38 NB/assa

    Thanks for the build and other peoples builds.
    Just getting back into the game since it went F2P :P

    I have a 54 rogue. A leveling build would be good.
