    Default Impale

    Does anyone use Impale? By the time I build up 5 combo points, there is usually not 16 seconds left of battle.

    Maybe it is good for long boss battles.

    If you are not using impale there is something wrong with you.

    Opener:
    Jagged strike > puncture > impale > sit back and enjoy them melt.

    I agree, that's the opener I use. I love impale.

    Jagged strike gives me three combo points, puncture gives two more. By then the fight is 40% over.

    Why would I use a dot that takes 16 seconds to tick off if a fight only lasts maybe 8 - 10 seconds after I use it? 501 damage from impale over 16 seconds is about 32 damage per second. After 10 seconds, that is only 320 damage. Deadly Strike does 408 instant damage.

    Instead of saying that there is something wrong with me, why don't you explain why I would use a dot that will only tick through half way before the fight ends?

    Trying to learn here.

    because impale does 250dmg per tick... for a total of 2k dmg. So basically you do jagged strike, puncture, impale and Slip Away and taunt them in stealth while they slowly bleed to death...

    Jagged Strike and Impale both crits for around 300 damage, unless the target has some sort of heals, the aforementioned opener will kill any target. Just open up dot dot dot slip away and laugh.

    Thanks, I'll give that a try. Seems reasonable for instances, not so necessary for solo leveling.

    Also, for soloing, if you dont have rift scavenger 3, your failing for the grind, impale lets you build up points for the heal on death...should easily be able to get 3-5 points for a 18% to 30% heal afterwards

    better question, wtf u leveling as assassin for? this spec imo is 100% for pvp and i only use it as such...

    so when you ask a question like this, 99% of the answers will be for pvp because that is what you should be using this spec for...

    Thanks for the suggestion on Rift Scavenger. I usually just use a drink when I need to recover hp but this seems a good choice too. Tough choice to think where I would give up 13 points from my other souls but will think about it.
