At RR5 you'll have a few options as to how to spec you scout.

This spec:

39melee 42shield 36stealth 37(ish) bow

Wont work, as you'll only end up with 35 bow with the points left after spending the others.

Aside from this, I would advise against going that low on bow.

If you want melee damage, I'd recommend a spec with lower shield and/or stealth. However if you want to keep slam, your options become more limited.

I would recommend you keep stealth at 35 highest. as stealth over lvl 50 doesnt give any bonus (or so I've heard). at 35 stealth you can get +15 item/rr bonus to get 50 modified stealth. This is the most you really want.

Passable melee damage on a scout isnt easy, you need not only a decent weaponspec, but also all the arti's and decent items to back that spec up. I'd say if you want to keep slam, go for 29 weaponspec, this wont give you anything like 'uber' damage, but will deal a half decent amount with the right template.

As I said, I would strongly recommend keeping bow at 45 or 50, as its you most effective means of dealing damage.

lol if you want to do melee dmg roll an inf, 50 bow 42 shield and whatevers left in stealth is the way to go for a scout. Oh and don't forget lots of FE and aug dex aswell as mos5 !

At RR5 my scout is 45Bow 42sheild 34Stealth 29Thrust with +15 to all, previous i was 50bow with thrust at 18 but my melee was horrible, changing to 45 bow and 29 thrust i barely notice any difference in Bow damage but notice huge change in melee

tbh, spec the scout the way you want to!

cookie cutter specs are:

35 stealth, 42 shield, 50 bow, rest thrust(18) <---- tower humper spec

or

34 stealth, 42 shield, 45 bow, 29 slash <---------- is nice

or Jaem's spec

30 stealth 40 bow, 42 shield, 39 thrust/slash <------ is nice

or for pure boredom
33 stealth, 50 wpn, 42 shield, 21 bow

Altho suited for RR4+, this one still shines in my opinion.

39 Thrust
42 Shield
40 Bow
30 Stealth (32 with auto)

200-350+crit mele
400-500+crit bow
nice melee ws 1500-1600
nice bow ws 1950-2100
high defence
CC, FZ, ST, 6sec reactional and 9sec anytime stun

By far the best All-Rounder if your into doing whatever you feel like, live be the sword, live by the bow, live by the CC.

I still find it amazing that people STILL believe scouts suck at melee encounters... cluelessness is quite strong in some, their basicaly a lite s/s armsman with stealth and crazy range/dmg.

Thought those thats been out and tried the melee specs would have proved that to some of you by now. o_O

bow is 2 low 4 low rr scouts. Spec will work at least after rr7-8.

My favorite spec is

50lb, 44 thrust/slash, 32 stealth 19 shield.

nice bow dmg, nice melee dmg

edit:

and important thing on that spec 0points left :)

At the price of Defence, would need MoB3 or so to compensate, but sounds ok. :)

Maybe, I guess spec af from BB will deal with it, just I was always for high defence heh. :)

Did try 23Shield at one point, but 400+ dex boosted it insanely. :)
