i have been thinking about my nighrshade final spec. I have decided to go 50 Stealth[b][/b] and that has been wroked out so please do not comment on this

effectively this means i can go 44 in one lines, 39 in one and 20 in another or 44 in one, 31 in one and 29 in one.

At first i was set of 44 crit, 39 pierce and 20 poison, but after using celtic dual (until lvl 20 wen i get a respec) i was wondering, would it be better to take 44 cd or crit because, crit is good and uses stealht well, but celtic dual also has like hindering and bleeding styles. Any thoughts????

One last thing, i was thinking crit would be better because if i was going celtic dual wouldn't i go blademaster?

please add any know info

I know you don't want anyone to comment, but you are wasting your spec points. Nightshades don't have as many points as they do skills, and not using every point effectivly will seriously make your character weak. Stealth over 50 gives you no advantage. Training stealth over 40 is a waste of points because of items with +stealth and ToA artifacts.

Just my 2 cents, take it for what it's worth :P

Although I only have an 18th level nightshade, and probably still need to do a lot more experimentation with this class, I have not in the least bit been disappointed with the Critical Strike/Stealth/Envenom combination. I also took alchemy as my trade skill so I craft my own poisons. Not much else to say. When I get further in to it, I will probably take a closer look at what level I want each of those spec's at. I do know that I will probably stick with those three.

When you get into a higher level, you'll want to add points to pierce and a little to CD for your offhand swings. You'll notice as you get higher in level that your pierce will effect your base damage and your pierce styles.

Everyone likes different specs, and the good thing about nightshades is there are a few different ways to spec them according to play style. The most common spec is:

44 Pierce
39 CS
35 Stealth
35 Envenom
The rest in CD (which should be around 21)

This is if you don't autotrain any skills and if your shooting for realm rank 5, you'll be 50 with your + points in all but CD. Now with ToA and other items with + stats on it, training a skill to 50 besides your weapon doesn't give you many advantages. This spec gives you all the necessary Pierce styles, the Perf chain in CS and stealth and envenom good enough to get you to 50 to use Lifebane poisons and 50 stealth at RR5. The CD points really help in RvR when your out of endurance and that offhand swing really comes in handy. Again this is just my 2 cents, and there are many ways to spec a nightshade. Just find one that suits your playstyle effectively :)
