Hey guys this is my first post, and hopefully not my last. Recently I am sure people notice how much the patch has affected the damage output of rogue. This isn't an issue on any other aspect of rogue... except for the rift stalker.
Now for those of you that do not know how rift stalker works is that, you phase shift, aoe hate, buff yourself up through various moves and keep phasing to generate hate and buffs.
After the latest path the Rogue deals less damage so believe it or not it has become much more difficult to keep hate, compaired to the other Classes out there.
What I have come up with (not tested), is Sab(44points spent)/Riftstalker(22points spent)...
You Start off with shrapnel (this gathers 0 hate if you tree it correctly), put 5 charges on him before you start. Then Shadow Blitz, appear behind the enemy (at this point you have all hate)! Then you use Detonate, gather more hate.. Then you use Last Stand, which hurts you but generates a tonne of hate, and damage :)!!!! Then shadow Stalk, appear behind main target, use the move Land Mines this will create this will knock back enemies. At this point the mobs should be close to finished. You can annihilate to gather more hate, or rift disturbance.
Try it out on some runs but make sure they are tier ONE! lol I think Tier two will merk!
