AlphaWolf: Dude I have never seen a detailed guide to a good class like this I love it
Kamraan Sooky: How would u put this in a macro if u can?
Kamraan Sooky: Wat would the rotation for someone at lv 34?
Flash Gordan: Thanks for this!
flymolo: While I do like Enduring Brew a lot, which is why I made mention of it, it
is optional. You may have a point on Foul Play. You could throw it into the
rotation after assassinate and take less damage during the fight - or even
no damage if you hit with 4 critical hits in a row. Honestly, though,
survivability is not a problem with this build so I never gave Foul Play
flymolo: Quick Strike actually does more damage than Precision Strike so while
Assassinate is still adding only 2 combo points you'll do more dps by
starting with Assassinate, Puncture, Keen Strike, Quick Strike (instead of
Precision), Deadly Strike and then using Precision Strike for the rest of
the rotation. When Assassinate brings a guaranteed 3 combo points later in
the build there is no reason to use Quick Strike anymore since Assassinate,
Puncture, Keen Strike gets you to a 5 point Deadly Strike.
Dash Thunder: this good for pvp?
flymolo: For the record, Rogue is my favorite calling because I haven't tried a soul
I didn't like. On my rogue currently I have this build, a pure Assassin
build, a Bard build for support (which is very helpful in groups) a
Riftstalker build for tanking which I haven't tried, and a Riftstalker
Marksman build for PVP. I used Marksman/Ranger for some early level aoe
goodness and I have a low level alt that I'll try leveling with Sab
Tactician. Way too much fun for one calling!
flymolo: It does excellent single target damage so someone who is particularly
skilled at pvp will likely enjoy it. I am not particularly skilled at pvp
and find myself dying more often than not when trying to play a melee rogue
with no Riftstalker elements in the build.
Dash Thunder: Very informative I gonna try this spec thanks for info!
flymolo: There really is no good way to macro since the abilities don't have
cool-downs. The abilities used in this rotation are pretty easy just to put
into a rotation.
Gnomefro: And for that matter, if your goal is to create a good levelling build with
lots of assassin in it, it's a mystery to me why you'd skip foul play and
enduring brew. Both are guaranteed to make you level faster due to giving
you essentially zero downtime and at 2 points nobody are going to notice
any minor dps difference.
armagedoc66: Thanks for the answer man, i was confused :) your video changed my mind
about melee rogue and i wanna try them all. Can you make a saboteur build?
Are they good?
Hellmo Sandvich: What are your PC specs which enable you to have these very smooth videos?
flymolo: Find your class trainer and buy a soul reset.
captainmichael100: man u should do some warfronts some pvp gameplay I wana see you play :D
MintifiedBoya: how do i macro this?
flymolo: You can set up macros with priority, meaning that the macro will cast
whichever ability you have listed first that is available to be cast.
Therefore - I have a rogue spec for pvp that has a macro for "attack" that
will cast whichever is available to cast between abilities with cooldown,
ranged abilities, or short range attacks. For this build and this rotation
a macro would not work because all of the abilities have no cooldown so the
macro would spam Puncture over and over and over.
flymolo: I would recommend trying this build, particularly in the levels 20 to 50
range, before judging it. The thought behind it is to have you doing
massive damage throughout the leveling process and it absolutely
accomplishes this. Grabbing utility skills from BD would detract from the
dps output and you kill things so quickly with this build that you simply
don't need to be less squishy.
flymolo: The only thing that makes Precision Strike worth it at all is that it gets
you to a 5 point Deadly Strike quicker. One swing of Precision + Deadly
Strike is better than two swings of Quick Strike + Deadly Strike.
Gnomefro: I'm not sure if the motivation behind this build is the best. It seems like
you're desperately trying to avoid a respec during levelling to the point
where you're getting lots of abilities with little synergy. Frankly, if
someone wants to start dumping points into blade dancer and use those as
the main attack for vast amounts of levels it seems to make much more sense
to grab utility skills from blade dancer to make you less squishy than
getting duplicate "buff this tree" skills in assassin.
CT2507: thats not fast kills. my ranged rogue kills faster and recieves little to
no damge cause of the tanking pet. i have no downtime between kills.

Recording with Fraps My system is almost 2 years old, was not top of the
line when I bought it, and I still have not found an online game I can't
play on max settings. That said, turning RIFT's ground clutter density
setting to 0 makes it a lot smoother on the recording.
Gloochify: Make more?
Mark Rampone: Can you do that rotation with Macros?
OH Den Sexy: can you undo a soul tree ?? and how
armagedoc66: pure Sin build is sooo fun really.. on PvP and PvE. I play it with
nightbalde. so many early improvement is the soul. I will look for you RS
build now :) thanks for the guides man! I hope they buff the ST of sab or
at least give them some more utility. They are hell of a fun in PvP.
Waiting for people to run away from my friends, THEN BOOM!
Svylin: thank you so much for this c:
armagedoc66: So molo, you use quick strike only at early levels right? Cuz it will
confuse me to use both of the quick and precision strike. Pre is lower dmg
but like 1-2 secs faster for finisher. Also they cant dodge and parry it.
flymolo: I have played with Sab at lower levels and really liked it but have not
tried it at high levels and have not played a pure Sab build. One of the
great things about Sab is that the range attacks have no minimum range like
Ranger and Marksman trees. You can remove the minimum in Marksman
eventually, but Sab is really nice to combine with Marksman, especially at
lower levels, so you aren't finding yourself at close range with no good
attacks to use.
flymolo: I posted one in 2011 just to show how fantastically I suck at pvp! I find
this build to be too difficult in pvp - at least for me. It's fun to
stealth up on a mage and mow him down, but usually I die long before I do
significant damage. Generally when I pvp with my rogue I use Bard for
support or a Riftstalker build I came up with. It doesn't do a lot of
damage but it sure draws attention away from the good players on my team! :)
flymolo: I will be making a warrior spec video within the next week or two.
