While I have toyed around a bit with a RiftBlade a bit in the beta I was curious if anyone else really got a chance to try out focusing on this soul. I was curious just how well it performed damage wise or if it was far behind the other warrior damage builds that might make it not worth it.
Either way I really enjoy the aspect of the class (seeing how lack luster to me shaman seemed for what I wanted) and was looking into builds. Right now I'm thinking of going for a Champ/Rift/Reaver combo using the Reaver Death dots to its advantage. I probably am leaning towards a 51 point in reaver seeing the 51 avatar seems to berather strong and looking at the trees dipping very far into reaver doesn't really provide a huge amount of abilities that would supplement riftblade as much.
I was wondering if it would be good though to invest into the reaver tree for those extra dots or would it just be better to go for the 5% extra hit in Champion and get grim satisfaction (Would need 1 point less in there) or would it be better to go for an extra dot? I could see also bypassing getting points in Reaver and instead investing more into champion to get bash as a more reliable interrupt. Any opinion would be good to see others who are thinking of going the Riftblade route.
