This is all PvP musing, nothing about PvE at all.

I've been tooling around trying to get some PvP builds worked out. My main problem is not getting to targets or getting out of bad situations it's actually killing someone inbetween that.

My toebomber build isn't working as well as I'd like anymore, so I've reworked a bunch of my builds, and here's some musing on the subject:

BD25/RS/INF15: Anti-cleric
rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MVpb.e0dmzs0RM.Vcbchq0Ro.eb0R0b

This is a fairly split build. I want more stuff from BD but I can't go lower than 15 for anathema for obvious reasons.

BD20/RS/INF20: Anti-cleric with stealth
rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MVpb.e0dmzs.Vcbchq0Ro.gb0R0b0x0o

Sacrifice some movement (flash) in BD and some survivability (parry) for perma-stealth and the mana draining finisher. I honestly don't see the point in that finisher considering there's better anti-mage builds with more burst and anathema is what will turn the cleric tables in the end.

RS32/ASN34/SAB0: General build
rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0MMpT.GARcz0foddk.VcxIzqzRoz

This is what I'm in most of the time. It has long term fight survival from RS, lots of battlefield movement, the two best escape powers. (slip away w/perma stealth and memory capture)

I honestly think the last build is your best bet. You do good damage and have pretty good utility and tons of ways to get away from people.

It might just be the best option, sadly.

It's ***** against clerics, though. Especially justicar builds. I sat there once in Iron Pines for 5 actual minutes fighting a justicar cleric and neither of us was budging between his healing and mana regen and my healing and damage mitigation.

Yeah I don't really deal with clerics when I pvp even at mid levels. This is why I tend to stick to bard builds because the state that rogue is in for pvp is pretty crappy.

I don't really agree as much necessarily with that.

The only problem I really have is the amazing amount of warriors running around and how insane void knight is against anyone with a mana bar.

Clerics i see more as a puzzle than a problem as they're just not a major threat to my continued survival, but neither am I necessarily. I'm still disruptive as all heck to their healer line even if I know I wont kill anyone immediately.

Granted, I'm always trying to find ways to kill people ;)
