all i can say is there are 4 spec's you can have ready, and to each his own. that being said, your build w the assasin going for the stealth is more of a leveling or pvp build, as a pve build would be more focused on just single target dps imo. this is my fave build and i will explain why: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MfNi.xhL0V0Vh.EMcfu0kco0z.V0x
first off, if you go for the blood raptor or even just placing points into the ranger soul your are dependant on the pet staying alive, and there is only so much rejuvinate can do, so that explains the "Enduring". with the 10 points in nightblade soul your combo point abilities really take a bite out of the mob. with auto attacks making up a very small aount of your damage dealt i dont see the need for placing points in "Doubleshot" when they can be put to better use, again, imo. all in all, this build is focused on your combo using abilities, rather than on crit like with the assassin soul, but my 2 mainstay souls are marksman and ranger, they work very well together and its hard to justify not using marksman if you want to be a ranger. that third soul is a toss up, and i have tried them all, but this one has a bigger impact on your damage imo. now i could be wrong, like the man said, the game is new and everyone is experimenting. but with this build i picked only what made progress twards single target PvE DD. the "trick shot" is there for aoe on trash only, and its usefull as it is fast and fills up the combo points up quickly so you can use concussive blast. please pick it apart, as i could use some ideas, but this build atm is all i can see as the "best" ranger build.
