    Personally for single target dps I prefer to go 51 cabalist and spam BoD with that huge death damage boost with the dot portion also incorporated.

    Thats just me though.

    Your spec is this: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=00...igtzqz.V0V.Vox ?

    Your rotation would be something like this?

    Spiritual Deficiency
    Vex
    Fanaticism + SH
    Shards of Light
    Decay
    Obliterate
    Shards of light
    Vex
    SH
    Decay
    Shards of Light
    BoD
    Shards of Light

    rinse repeat?
    debuff magic
    vex,
    sanction,
    shards
    <there is a gap here while waiting for shards>
    debuff crit
    shards of light
    vex
    sanction
    shards
    <another gap>
    corruption

    corp justice is up I use obliterate, if it is NOT up, i do not use it.


    pvp is pretty standard though. banish vex and then if target dosent move, debuff magic sanction and shards.


    if they are going to make life and death proc more, Id have to have someone parse my damage for me. it just dosent seem like consitant enough for me to throw the 10 points into the combo, when shards is a consistent.

    than you for testing it for me, I am curious to see the results.

    You shouldn't wait. Shards has a 6sec CD, and a 4sec use time, leaving a 2sec gap. Here's the >ideal< rotation, judging from time base on spells:

    Spiritual Deficiency
    Vex (15 sec duration)
    Fanaticism + SH (15 sec duration, 14 sec left on Vex)
    Shards of Light (4sec duration, 6sec cd [11sec on SH, 10 on Vex)
    Decay (2sec left on SoL cd, get 3 stacks [8sec on SH, 7 on Vex)
    Obliterate (Is CP up? If yes then Obliterate, if NO then skip to next step) [If used: 7sec on SH, 6 on Vex]
    Shards of light (4sec duration, 6sec CD - 2sec on Vex, 3 on SH) next step is refresh:
    Vex [15sec]
    SH [15sec / Vex 14]
    Decay [SH 12sec, Vex 11sec]
    Shards of Light [4sec duration, 6sec cd: 8sec on SH, 7sec on Vex]
    BoD [3sec cast, 2sec left on SoL (cast this instead of BoJ because of higher coefficient) 5sec on SH, 4 on Vex]
    Shards of Light [4sec duration, 6sec cd: 1sec on SH, 0 on Vex]
    Vex
    SH

    etc.... The rotation you gave me has downtime, which ultimately lowers ones DPS. Luminous Gaze gets overwritten in a raid environment and simply isn't worth the point. I'm not a PvP tester, variables the environment dictates differs from PvE, sometimes greatly.

    The channeled spells is an interesting build idea. I'd thought of it once but I just kinda figured Shards of Light wouldn't scale well enough to make it worthwhile.

    Has anyone done any actual damage number testing on it since it was fixed?

    What does the rotation look like for the 51 inq/10 sent/5 war setup?

    Fanata + SH, Vex, BoJ until BoD procs

    Actually BoD parses higher than BoJ (given the higher crit rating and better sp coefficient). On fights that require more movement I favor BoJ for that reason only, but on others such as Duke, Oracle, Plutonus, Warmaster I favor pure BoD spam.

    To Koe:

    46/10/10 inq/sent/sham

    My stats:
    (I chose not to use my Focus set because it was dummy testing, which allowed me to up my crit and sp, maintaining a more raider-esque gearset statwise (my gear is toward healing not DPS))
    SP: 1022
    Crit rating: 492
    Crit percent: 18.92%

    DPS: 634
    Duration: 3:57sec
    Damage: 149.7k

    BoJ spam was 30-50 DPS superior to BoD, however mana issues... shouldn't exist in a raid though. This spec is 30-50 DPS lower than 51/10/5 inq/sent/warden.

    banish does horrid dps, but one thing I started to notice is it gives me more of a chance to proc things like corporal punishment. in pvp, banish is a 100% must use since it has no cooldown... and you save SH for a target you KNOW you can use your full rotation on.

    but honestly Shards of light is giving me the highest damage per sec on the dummy and giving me the most kills in pvp. so I wanted to have this build tested and parsed by the same person who parsed the first 4 builds.


    oh and I am 45inq 10 cab 11 sent
    To BishopX:

    My stats same as the post above this.

    45/10/11 Inq/Cab/Sent

    DPS: 550, topped @ 580
    Duration: 4min 7seconds
    Damage: 141k

    Obviously not worthwhile. You're probably getting the kills in PvP because it ticks rather than has a cast time.

    great thread, I'm just starting out with DPS, seems there is quite of lot of stuff to keep an eye out for, I've been trying to work out a few macros to make it a bit more simple to keep track of CD's /debuffs but macros dont really seem to fit well with the inq, then again it might just be me hehe

    any ideas on macro for this build ?

    I personally don't use any macros. This is my old guide, my new guide can be found here though:
