What is the best Rift rogue build for leveling?
Let's observe a quick look at some of the best rogue builds for leveling on your own. These next three talent trees show you the path to take depending on the level youre currently at:
- Level 15: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1Mipc..xh.iczo
- Level 18: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0Mipc..xh.iczoco
- Level 25: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1Mipc.Vhx.xh.iczoco
Here is the rest of the build information, courtasy of gbny over at the riftgame forums:
Put points in straight bard to whatever your cap is. You pick up the extra armor and healing bonus from rift stalker. The additional Endurance buffs you get and the armor bonuses gave me 1100 health and 20% physical damage reduction when i used Guarded steel, which does as much damage as Coda at this level so feel free to get the buff whenever you have melee on you without losing any damage. The 30% healing bonus makes your song hot and Cadence heal for a TON and mobs can barely scratch you as is. The next 4 levels you want to buff up street performer to unlock your AOE coda and you are done with bard tree for now. Once you get your basic setup you start to scale it up and add tools from the Nightblade soul. Start putting points in Blazing fury, coup de grace and unstable state in the night blade tree. This will buff all your basic forms of damage, and in turn healing, by 15%/9%/15% while giving you stealth, a pre-pull CC and the ability to open with ANOTHER 20% overall damage buff while being able to pull 5 mobs aoe tank and dps them all while healing you at 100%. This is as far as I've gotten but once you have this setup you can go back and fill out the bard tree. This setup has good damage, amazing self healing coupled with survivability for awkward pve pulls (respawning 5 mobs in a tight area is no problem to tank now). I hope you find this helpful.
