What I'm saying is, there is no 'best' specialization...you really just have to be how you want to play...if you want to be ranged, go ranger, if you want to be melee go assassin/duelist, if you want to have lots of buffs go bard.
IMO the best is Assassin/Duelist for Melee Rogue Bard/Ranger for Ranged rogue...
im pretty much with x on this. im currently trying out the viability of assassin/bard, im sure its at least viable and the best choice for cunning based melee characters, who knows it may even be really good, well have to wait and see.
i know theres one ardent supporter of ranger/duelist on the boards, but im not sure how much salt you should take that with, since he says he doesnt even backstab........
imo mixing ranger and assassin just doesnt have anything going for it though. either pump the hell out of cunning and further maximize high cunning with song of courage, or grab duelist and get pinpoint strike to maximize the mark of death.
duelist bard is a pretty shoddy mix too, imo. the bards offensive song and duelists pinpoint strike have too much overlap to really make it shine. if pinpoint strike just raised damage, or the bard song improved critical damage instead of critical rate that would be a different story, but as is, its pretty meh imo.
