    So I’ve been starting to get into playing the Vanilla Splat Roller and I was curious what the standard gear build is after the latest patch.

    I'm no Roller main, but I've been experimenting with the class for a while. Ninja Squid is one of the better abilities for Rollers, even after the nerf a while back that made you slower. To counteract the slowness, I recommend at least a pure (1 main 3 subs) of Swim Seed along with it. Basically, abilities that allow you to approach enemies without getting killed.

    That being said, you will die. I recommend some Quick Respawn and Stealth Jump to get back into the fight quickly and safely. Something like this:

    Other things to consider are a main and sub of special saver to keep your splashdown if you die mid splashdown. Also sub saver, a sub or two of ink resistance and such. But obviously the main thing you wanna invest in is swim speed.
