    Default PvP Builds

    The build I've been messing with and contemplating using is a RB/Reaver/VK or Vindicator 0.

    Soul Tree Calculator: Riftblade (51) / Reaver (15) / Void Knight (0) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM

    My reasoning behind it is:
    • Tons of survivability
    • Uses a shield for added "tankiness"
    • Insane kiting capability after applying Reaver DoTs w/RB abilities
    • Increased Reaver DoT damage from points in RB

    Haven't really spent much time playing around with Riftblade but I imagine I'll spend some time with it during open Beta. That said the only thing I would personally alter in the spec you listed is this: Soul Tree Calculator: Riftblade (51) / Reaver (15) / Void Knight (0) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM

    Soul Sickness and Necrotic Wounds attack point generators power cost cut in half, since NW is insta with no cooldown and has a 20m range that's hot IMO.

    I want to give this one a try at end game PvP: Soul Tree Calculator: Void Knight (51) / Reaver (9) / Paladin (6) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM

    Free ranged AE dmg from Reaver
    Extra block for survivability from Paladin
    Ability to destroy mage/healer mana pool in the blink of an eye
    High damage output of a VK

    I haven't played Alpha so I have no clue what lvl 50 will be like but if I read VK 51 ability Tempest right it will be Discharge on crack as an AE ability on a 10 second cooldown.

    I really do not like the play style of Void Knight in PvP (at least pre-50). I always find myself returning to Riftblade/Champion, but who knows what 50 will be like with all the changes that will most likely follow launch.

    I've only done a number of warfronts, but I've been running around with a Riftblade/Pally combo and it's been absolutely excellent . Between the shield and block bonuses, damage reduction avatar, full heal, and the earthshield, theres tons of survivability and rift walk (I think it's called that?) takes care of problems when people root you. Also, the dps is actually excellent and when there are groups of people, the dps gets out of hand really fast. With imrpoved fork and the multiple AoE abilities (storm burst, earth burst), I have topped the warfront damage list multiple times.

    also, for PvE content, it has been excellent and so far I've maxed out at pulling 6 mobs of my level while soloing. and with a healer, I haven't had a problem with anything yet.

    I did use that at level 30ish in Beta 6. I think it will be amazing with a free 100% heal combined with the excellent kiting capability of Riftblade.

    I wonder how bad the lolspear nerf will be. Honestly after discovering some other skills I'd be happy if it still just acted as a ranged combo builder. By far the worst thing that could happen is if they give it a cooldown though. Even 5 seconds would severely screw over RBs.
