    Default Sab and Patch 1.1 DPS

    Wow,

    So, logged in to play around for a few minutes and ran some parses of before and after on the dummy. Same exact spec/gear and saw a DPS drop of 38-42%.

    Absolutely not point in playing any sort of rogue at this point. Warrior DPS is down a whopping 8-12% and now just about 300% that of rogues. Why on earth would someone ever take a rogue to a raid, expert, and certainly not PVP.

    What a joke this game suddenly became. Thankfully the pyros can still explode people in one shot, the champs can still stunlock someone to death, etc.

    What are you parsing single target post patch?

    Are you using the same rotation? If so you might want to drop 5 spike charge then 5 blast charge. Basically because of the 1.1 change there is no need to do anything but those two.

    It's worse than I feared then. =/ I was doing about 850 pre-patch, I'm sure I'll be in the same ballpark now. I really don't want to have to roll nightblade to put out any sort of DPS. I can't stand the soul.

    wait a sec tho, because they changed charger boost is it not just better to do the 5 point armor then 5 point blast charge now?

    It seems to me that they made the sab proper noob friendly now, Before the best thing to do was have 1 of each charge, now in pvp it just seems doing 5 blast charge is the best.. so from 6 buttons to 2..

    I have tested it with one of each charge, 5 straight of each charge, it doesnt matter. I used to be able to spike to 900dps but now can't break 500ish.

    Full purples, all the T2 gear, don't matter. Just no goddam point anymore.

    Can get to 600 dps changing out some gear and minor tweaks to the build, on a spike. So damage is down about 30-31%

    The real thing is why would anyone bring a rogue to anything? Our ranged DPS is now inline with bad warriors, worse than almost all mages with less utility, and a joke compared to melee monsters.

    Seriously, 2 bards per raid, rest of the rogues get to go home.

    600 is what you are going to be seeing give or take 50 dps or so at range. You can see more in melee range I hear.

    ive seen 1 rogue hit 680 dps self buffed. Keep in mind thats if the boss does nothing and just stands there attacking the tank. My Tank friend is still hitting 1k dps

    BM/Para specs are still banging around 1200+, twice that of a melee rogue.

    Pyros are now even more sick.

    Nothing says funny like a 200 valor sabo in full purple hitting a mage with a full 5 charge cycle for 1200.

    I guess that's it then; brb.. Rerolling mage, naming him Jesus, getting to level 44, popping ground of skill, never looking back.
