    In short - it is mainly used for PVE Solo (awesome AOE grinding) when combined with riftstalker self heal it does wonders.

    I've found it is decent in PVP and less than average in PVE dungeon/raid dps.

    Overall? A blast to play, just wish it brought more to PVE groups.

    This might be the new and only AoE Solo/Grinding spec now that Sab is a tad nerfed!

    BD/RS is great for solo pve, all you have to do is spam twin strike, finish with compound, or dancing steel if its up, save some combo points on a dying mob and woot, your hp bar is full.
    In PvP, BD is kind of weak since it does not have any real burst dmg skill. BD's dodge is also not that great either.
    The most annoying thing about BD is their rhythmic skills' exhaustion. You can only use 1 of them at a time thank to exhaustion (20-45 sec). You want to chase a kiter and burst them down? Sorry not happen. You are in a critical state and you want more survivabilty and turn the tide with burst dmg? Sorry happen either.

    Well it's certainly not "new", it's had a small but loyal following for a while. But post patch you may be right on the "only".

    Incredibly fun and self sufficient solo PvE spec. It's a real shame that it's extremely sub par when not dodging/parrying attacks though.

    You can actually come up with some competitive DPS using 32 BD as the basis for a spec. After that, further points in DB ends up being spent in reactive procs which are more appropriate for soloing and anti-melee PvP.

    Discussion on some of those BD/Sin/NB specs in:

    Bladedancer is a way better spec for solo aoe killing than sab. way faster.
