I’m not a new rogue, but with the upcoming mod 15 changes, and some...impromptu extra time on my hands as of late, I was looking at some things.
I would like to bounce an idea around i’ve had for a rogue build.
Now, this is not a standard build that I’ve seen, but more of a full on debuff support dps rogue. And if already out there, apologies. Bear with it.
The idea behind this is to slam as many debuffs on a target as possible for the rest of the team. And provide pocket healing a bit. Not to take away from templocks or dc’s or plly’s, but to provide rogue players with an option now that we may hit with plastic sporks.
This is by no means a dps build. At all. Period (i’ve played a rogue since the game came out on xbox. I’m used to not being top dps. Being top dps recently is a bit unnerving)
Full disclosure: I play on xbox, i run a higher end normal rogue, acdc, and pally as my mains.
I have not tested this at all, but its more theory at this point. I would appreciate feedback. I am curious if it would work as intended.
Charm of the serpent artifact slotted
Eye of lathander
Artifact 3 haven’t decided. Ideas?
Artifact 4 haven’t decided. Ideas?
I figure the last two you can slot whatever stats you want. Don’t really need a wheel. Go cheapest viable maybe? (Lantern and a class one?)
Lathander’s set for the bonus. There is a lack of heals, this one seems to be a nice bonus if you’re ok with being suicidal. But hey you’re a rogue, comes with the territory.
Soulforged in chest slot. Does soulforged proc lathander’s set?
Slot whatever (i like air archons)
Lilend active (because of the dailies a rogue can spam seems to make sense)
Jagged dancing blade
Elemental air cultist
Weapons: at this point i’m leaning burning set. Even though its old, you may need it to make up for the lack of ap gain neck.
No idea, but mulling some ideas. Slotted would probably be the ap gain ones.
I have no idea on rotations yet. Ideas?
Race i pick human. But there are better choices. Tails and scales and pointy ears annoy me.
Action advantage 5/5
Weapon mastery 3/3
Toughness 3/3 (for the chicken i hope)
Cunning ambusher 3/3
Endless assault 3/3
Disciple of strength 3/3
As human i have three extra points. I put them in the scoundre training, though the extra stealth time may work better.
This is where it gets weird. No capstones (none of them help)
Flashing blades 5/5
Knifes edge 5/5
Shady prep 5/5
Distracting knife 5/5
Bloody brawler 5/5
Seething knives 5/5
Back alley tactics 5/5
Arterial cut 5/5
Vicious pursuit 1/5 (i had one point left)
I have not figured these out yet. Ideas?
Might be <font color="orange">HAMSTER</font>, might be ok. But if your option is plastic sporks...
I’m not sure it could ever be a solid viable replacement of a templock or an acdc or a do, but on paper it seems to be able to provide some interesting ideas.
