I have been searching and have not been able to find a build combining a few of these elements and wanted to see if anyone has already and if not how they think the following build would work in practice as opposed to just theory.
Basically use the assassin|rogue MC warlock chasis for:
1) Pact initiate
2) Cursed shadow
3) Hybrid talent (cunning sneak)
To be able to become hidden after moving 3 squares from shadow walk and cunning sneak. Take Drow as race as another way to get CA, the right stats and hand xbow support in paragon (or sooner if its worth it?)
The intention of the build is to be able to do ranged attacks, stay hidden, and have mobility if needed.
The assassin|rogue mc warlock is not required by any stretch it just seemed to be one of the most reliable methods of being hidden while still being able to use encounter and daily powers.
My major questions are what is the best paragon path to pursue and when is it best to switch from superior xbow to hand xbow?
The top two in my mind seem to be dread fang and champion of the vigil. I have seen cloaked sniper talked about a lot in terms of a ranged rogue but for some reason it’s really not blowing my skirt up. I think it is because generally I like paragon path features more than the powers unless they are spectacular.
Champion seems pretty foul with very good accuracy (easily achievable in this build) and crit range of 19-20 a lot of time. These two hopefully combine to lead to ruthless hunter and two fisted shooter triggering frequently (extra attacks and high crit). The AP ability on this PP is not great but not horrible either IMO. Of the powers the daily seems good but the other two are meh.
Dread fang gets strong sneak attack damage (probably going to get it almost all the time I am using rogue powers) as well as a nice action point booster (more sneak attack). The 16 ability is meh. The encounter power for dread fang is nice (a double tap) but the utility and daily seem pretty awful in this build.
Feats seem pretty straight forward:
Hybrid talent (cunning sneak)
Two fisted shooter
Slaying action (if not dread fang)
Drow fighting style (if for some reason I am getting in melee)
There are probably a lot more nice choices but that is what I can think of off the top of my head. What are your thoughts and are there other pages you would recommend I check out to flesh out this build?
