Not asking for advice, just putting these out there. They're all specialized builds for world event(pve) and world action (pvp) and general world exploration. I can't attest to the heroic raidability of any of them as I don't do that sort of thing. Most of them will be useful in battlefronts but they're mainly designed for assault and/or defense of world objectives. (towns, quest areas, ridding the world of gankers)
Sab gets added at 0 points to any build that doesn't need BD's dodge rhythmic for adhesive bomb.
This is what I'm in 99% of the time. It offers near absolute maximum mobility, (all rift ports, 5/5 in reduction, minus hasted time, perma-stealth, 1/2 stealth speed) general pve survival, (~40% reduction in damage w/barrier up and cloak-dagger) cc, anti-cc and plenty of burst damage.
Yes you lose most of your burst if you're not the ambusher but with slip away and all the teleports it's not hard to regain your advantage.
You should almost never be walking with this build. You should either be porting between enemies, porting *around* a single enemy (to maintain the 15% crit) or stealth-porting to unsuspecting enemies.
Remember, plane shifting doesn't break stealth unless you use shadow assault or shadow blitz (because they have attacks).
I don't use this one very often, but it's a more durable build. I often just tank minor things in bard or in the main build as generally there's someone with better gear for it (with avoidance stats or more armor) or with a setup with avoidance that self-heals (warrior or cleric).
Yeah, it's a full on bard build. NS is the only good compliment to 51 bard imoo, as all the talents help and it nets you a different damage type ranged finisher (fire) plus it gets you stealth and lost hope.
This build can do a surprising amount of damage with code of wrath/fury and virtuoso. I solo elite invasions without popping the planar ability if virtuoso is up. Plus this gets you +20% movement speed which is nice when major rift events are occurring.
This is the build I'm usually stuck using for most major world pve events as there is usually a lack of healing.
Mainly concerned with maximizing ranged dps this one comes with the caveat that I dislike using pets, hence no pet talents. The pet is there to soak damage and possibly annoy people but it's not the focus. It might help you solo some hardier elites as rogue lacks the long term solo fight capability that clerics or warriors get given we can only heal minor damage constant aoe (bard) or on kill. (rs) This is my least used build and only gets trotted out when there's tons of other bards already running around healing everyone.
