    Default Planar Vortex (Riftstalker)

    Planar Vortex - New Ability: Whenever the Riftstalker Plane Shifts, they gain Planar Vortex which lasts for 4 seconds. Deals 50% of your weapon damage every second to surrounding enemies and generates a large amount of threat. Effect can only be triggered when the Riftstalker is in Guardian Phase.

    Why limit this to Guardian Phase? Enabling it for Stalker Phase would give the 20RS builds the extra help it needs to be on par with Sabdancer in a raid setting

    Guardian Phase: Generates a large amount of threat.
    Stalker Phase: Planar Vortex is affected by your AP in some way.

    I smell a pvp request...

    Putting points into a tank soul for DPS in raids is fail. nice try but.
    I'M RIFTSTALKING YOUR MUM!

    I've found that Warriors are like Feminists. They want equality when it suits them, but the rest of the time they want to be treated special.

    read up on the blink'blade, and other 20RS builds that use stalker phase and teleports

    Riftstalker is no longer a tank soul.

    atm riftalker is handy for 2 things: Leveling fast on multiple mobs with 13 points for self healing bonus (using sin/bd ofcourse) and for part of the Escallation stone running spec, that will still get used since the only threat to it is 15v1 fighting or people debuffing him (smart MM) while the rest either debuff, or sneak about single target looking for weak to prey upon.

    That's why I don't really understand why it's Guardian Phase only... Every tiny bit of DPS helps though.

    well, for a while 8 points in riftstalker was +35% ap and stalker phase was actually a very nice buff and you could get 3 planeshifts to fuel it's second effect with the 16 points to get it.

    but that's gone now

    Probably because it's got a huge threat modifier and was designed to help aspiring Rogue tanks make AOE pulls in the only content they're actually able to do.

    Except, we really don't need more AOE threat since we got an overall buff to our threat already (and honestly, we never had any threat issues to begin with...)

    Eh, dunno if that first part is true even. They haven't given any specifications on just how much the threat modifier on our skills were and how much they are now. I doubt it's a nerf but at this point I could believe anything. I don't even know why I'm discussing this at all. How about tea?
