In my travels across Telara and the interwebs, I have discovered many powerful secrets. Some I must keep to myself, but I at last feel free to reveal a great boon to rogues: a new spec that I have humbly dubbed...

Lightning Ragnarok Shining Majesty
22 RS / 24 Sin / 20 BD

The best part about this spec is everything. With it, I can clear all 3 Chronicles in 20 minutes (most of that waiting for boring RP sequences to finish). With it, I can solo level 50 elite Rifts. With it, I can farm planar attunement levels without ever drinking, stopping (except for scheduled breaks for food and romance), or otherwise doing things that lesser beings consider necessary to their gaming. Rift Scavenger takes care of my healing and Twin Strike takes care of the bad guys not being dead.

I have successfully tanked Tier 1 (and some T2) instances while being the #1 DPS in every fight, even in Guardian Phase. Rift Barrier sends damage back at my attackers, while Planar Vortex aggros and kills everything that is foolish enough to attack me instead of drinking cyanide. Yes, I wear super-amazing P8 and some Hammerknell tanking gear and your results may vary. Sorry if I'm too awesome for your "accurate testing." Whatever.

When some git decides they think they can gank you in the midst of killing the patrolling commander packs in Stillmoor, they find out that they are simply caught in the whirling dervish of teleporting carnage that your blades deliver. Because it lacks a healing debuff, you are susceptible to high rank chloro/lock type mages or hybrid clerics. Don't cry to me about this. It's not even a dedicated PvP spec. Just avoid them.

However, you really won't be using these much. Mostly you just teleport into a pack of mobs (bigger the better) in Stalker Phase and massacre them with Twin Strike, using combo points to self heal and regen energy. Trion will probably nerf this because they are big jerks and hate rogues. Warriors can do 3000 DPS on Murdantix. How about you nerf them instead?

Why do you put 3points into deadly dance when you don't do finishers?

Celesta, try clicking the link again. Sounds like it bugged out for you.

Rogues can do more than 3k dps in Sicaron, easily.

I might even say 3.5k is possible.

I did 3.2k with MM with a stupid rotation and calling out stuff while purging aswell.

Man Dun, you dun did it again. from Dundancer to the 51 MM build. i have been using your ideas and prospering from them. But this is by far the coolest thing yet.

1100 dps with this build using annhilate.

Thanks, keep it up

I find, for those lacking in either the 4-piece HK set or P8 gear, that the Bladedancer Synergy crystal works amazingly well with this. Twin Strike crits so often, that your AP stacks will be building like crazy.

Great stuff, got it working like a charm even though im not using anything else then T1/T2 gear. The diff between my old blinkblade and this is huge. Especially when dealing with mobs of 5 +.

Thx for a great build buddy.

I seriously thought that this was a joke post, meant to make fun of us. Boy was I wrong. :) Great job! This is a ton of fun!

Very close to the one I use to use 13RS/ 32BD/ 21Sin...
Now this is a great spec for soloing and farming... Keep up the good work...

Is Blade Tempo worth it? When/how would you use it?

just a quick question, i noticed you took phantom blow and planar vortex, in what situation while soloing are you using these. Planar vortex requires guardian phase to work also.

I love how you come up with specs and instantly put your name tag on them.

I've been using a slight variation of this build since the actual patch notes for 1.5 came out(which is better than the crap you posted here) that can out damage/defence you any day.

Stop acting like a superstar... Maybe start with being a groupie before you continue with the advanced stuff.

Umad now? You should be. Your epeen has just been reduced by 5 meters.

Kind regards from an actual rogue that actually knows the mechanics of this game instead of the ones you still know from WoW.

Really butt hurt imo. Dun has never been anything but confident and slightly arrogant ). Who cares if he puts a name to a spec. If i want to make 51 MM and call it Magspec simply because I was the first to post it then so be it. If the name sticks who really gives a shit. Get out of your moms basement kid and stop pretending to know the "game mechanics". This isn't fucking quantum physics its a fucking game child; doesn't take a genius to figure out how shit works.

Dun I'm one of your guildies and don't have a blank spec for this! Please let's stop doing estrode to open one up. Kkty.

Jeeeeezus.

I have mostly PvP gear but solo the sh!t out of 50 rifts, chronicles, and invasions with this build. I have even switched to this build to kill the main boss in Port Scion and I'm always the last one standing.

I. Can't... Die.

Thank you so much for this build, it's insane for PvE.
