Rift Rogue DPS Build – Boom Boom Pow! (1.2)

Rift Rogue DPS Build – Boom Boom Pow! (1.2)

One of the most soloable souls, if done right, is that of the Saboteur.  Mix a saboteur, with a way to get combo points and dish damage at range from marksman, and healing from riftstalker, and you have a build that soloes incredibly well.  Unfortunately, many groups are not designed to take full advantage of a saboteur, so some of their abilities are wasted in this setting.

As stated, this build is designed for soloing.  That said, it will also work very well in groups and dungeons, but it does lack the use of Land Mines, which is a powerful tool when soloing.  Feel free to use Incriminate to push agro to the group Tank, and have fun!  I have used the Boom Boom Pow! (1.2) in both situations as a Rogue DPS Build in Rift, and it works well, but must be worked correctly.
