I was told by a fellow SK to do 4-4-8-8 INT, 4-4-7-7-2 WIS, and that's all I've heard. It sounds like perhaps I don't want to go so far down those trees, and possible skip WIS all together.  Maybe sticking more with STR and some STA. Also, the Reaver tree seems to be the most popular choice, for the self heals obviously. Can anyone provide a good idea of a build for an SK looking to mostly solo, but when grouped be dps? Thank you much, ~Stri

(Spell crit makes your lifetaps heal crit as well. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Heal crit doesnt. ) Taht will get you both survivability and dps. Wis? What? Fear immunity? Hmm, if you want to pull off the crazy [Removed for Content] we sks are known for (well, some of us) the end skill in sta fits better. 10 second stoneskin with divine aura. (plus, 4% extra health also makes reaving have a bigger heal) Str all the way will up your dps. There are countless of aa builds for different stuff here on the forums so if you search, you'll prolly find at least 10 of them. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

You took Bleed pool? Your laying there dying. Your a sitting duck. The next hit any raid mob gets on you is gona kill you anyway bleed pool or not. Points are better spent in other things like making your taunts get resisted less from the hate line. Few good setup's Int 448, Stam 441, Str 46841 Int 448, Stam 44641, Agi 445 Int 448, Stam 45851, X High end dont bother with Wis. The regen is crap and less than a lifetap over the course of a fight. The +to Skills will be useless to most of your raid if your doing endgame content cause they are already capped, Fear..... put on walk and crouch right under the mobs butt. you'll walk 4 feet and go right back to wacking on the mob. Eof AA's I think I'll keep to myself <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Reaver yes but other than that all I will say is look for what is going to net you the most gain in DPS, Resists, Recast timers. If I was to explain my eof aa tree I would say imagine a pitchfork. It gives a very good balance.

<p>O HELL ya i love the bleed pool!  When i first looked at it i said the same thing how dumb is that.  Sence I play on a PvP server i wanted my doom judgment up faster.  The 5pts in the debuff on our taunt the wis debuff increased, and dispoil is up faster.  So after i spent the points where i wanted i said well hell its 1pt lets see what happens.</p><p>That one point has saved my butt more than i can count.</p><p>When pulling in raids MT abit SSSLLLOOOOWWWW 1200 pts of un debuffable heath.</p><p>Didnt time your out right on shreader yep iam bleedin</p><p>The most usless sounding thing on the EoF line just saves my butt way to much for mte to drop it now</p>

As a soloer, I cant really see much use in it. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

hey Darksavanna, so how does that work? I'm curious.  I mean, once a Mob has beat you to the point of unconciousness do you lay there and bleed,and just not die because of the extra health... giving more time for a healer to get you back up while a mob continues to beat on you? does the mob not do any damage at that point?    Does the mob just then switch targets?  Thanks<img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<p>yes you lye there dieing but the mob says on you.  In PvP its is kind of a deagro a lot of people see me drop and then swap targets.  when you hit the bleed pool you do not loose agro or any buffs, but it wil kick reaver off so you dont eat your self to death.  For raids it lets the healers not concentrate on me at all.  ushaly a group heal kicks your out of hit and then just tap back up to full.  With it i tend to eat more AEs than i should and intercept when i shouldnt.</p><p>If you go with my sec you still keep the 30% to taunt resistance feel free to look it up on eq players</p>

<p>I am a solo SK on a pvp server.
