This article was written back when I was happily roaming on my Slayer and when I was still actively playing WAR. It was written with the intention of showcasing the way I play the career, introducing players to the playstyle and helping those who are struggling. Later I abandoned this semi-guide when I realised that this specific playstyle and the tactics depicted below are highly subjective in nature, that I’m not really qualified to be teaching anyone anything and that most of it could be condensed into a few sentences. It has been sitting in my drafts folder ever since. I decided to proof read it and correct it simply because I think it would be a waste to delete it and because I see some people searching for information on this topic. So take this wall of text with a grain of salt, and as always, test it before you buy it. With that, take it away Mr. Residential Quasi-Expert.
When Rift went into open beta and several guildies announced that they’ll be participating in it, I decided to swap my gear around and respec into a solo friendly build on my Slayer. If there’s not much going on in the guild as far as group play goes, I’m more than happy to go solo for a bit every now and then. Now, after a couple of days, I believe I’m back in the swing of ORvR solo roaming and I thought I’d share a bit of my knowledge and experience. It won’t be a guide per-se, since a lot of the gear, tactics setup and rotations, along with playstyle are subjective and mostly boil down to preference. But since there seem to be no decent Slayer guides around, you’re hardly in a position to complain.
