I loved the options in this book to upgrade gear. I turned Dusky Sonnet into a deadly weapon to make the bard career viable (8 health damage from good vibrations is great and it also makes scarlet strikes very effective). Also upgraded gloves, cloak and ring (Aldo's Ruin great for "pimping" as best ring and you get it quite early).
Quite low brawn if you compare with LoS and HoF rogues, but loving the passives, which are great against multiple adversaries.
This character teemed up with my HoF Venomancer (http://www.destiny-quest.com/forums/post-your-hero/show/2449#post2449) to take down Nordrassil. Very easy with their combined passives.
