How many more of these threads is there going to be?! Is everyone now leveling a mincer?

Fotm spec: (w/o autotrain)
50 Instrument
31 Stealth
29 Slash

Group spec: (w/o autotrain)
50 Instrument
43 Slash

Just forget thrust because it sucks for minstrels.

Personally having a Hunter before I made my mini, its a pain having low stealth spec unless your high RR or have a BB (just imo)
sooo, I went 50inst 31stealth 29slash. Thats the jack of all trades spec for me. Can't live without that ablative, its too damn handy! Better than praying for your armour proc to go off ;) Nice stealth so your that bit harder to spot at range and the anytime is just brilliant. Rogue class not uber tank weaponskill so thats fine for me!

All imo of course XD

Yeah stealth is good

Specc 50 stealth, 20ish slash and 20ish thrust, and a little bit of music on top of that

I disagree, thrust is a very viable spec nowadays, abit harder to play thrust than slash tho since you only have to use one style in slash..

The combination of good behindstyle in thrust and instant stun is much more powerful than most people realise.

I agree with Umi on this 1... I play a thrust mincer, and I have no problem whatsoever taking out slashing mincers or RR4ish pallies for that matter... But I agree that if ppl wanna do the no-brainer-easy-spec thingy, then go for slash. My vote is on thrust for mincers tho...

any thoughts on the:

44 instruments, 39 slash, 29 stealth spec
or
44 instruments, 35 slash, 34 stealth


My thoughts are like this:
44 instruments give you last dd shouts.
39/35 slash is easy to take to 50 or close to 50 with sc
stealth is a problem though.. even 34 might be a bit low for a new 50 minstrel. But i think the second spec might work.



Does this suck or not? And if so then please explain why.

Tbh is there much point specing stealth with toa so close, also the keep changes next patch will make it more difficult for stealth keep takes. Baring in mind toa is probley little over a month away and get next patch in weeks time.

My mincer is 50 ins 43 slash, im quite happy with it. But its a grp spec if u want stealth go for slash as you will be fighting sbs who are vunerable, so you might as well opt for increased dmg.

50 instruments / 43 thrust imo (44 with auto)

You'll get higher ws with thrust,and you'll suffer less from debuffs. o0
