    Default My bad. =(

    Okay, so in the past I've been complaining quite a bit about rogue dps, and, I was wrong.
    It takes work, you need to get top tier gear, to do go dps. Rogues are entirely gear dependent, since i got my raid tier dagger, I shred in warfronts, and pull ~1k consistent damage on single targets. The problem is you won't do great dps till then, find a guild, run gsb, then you're set.

    So what happens when everyone you come across in PvP starts getting geared up to? You are back to where you started.

    Things should be based on equally geared people, not one person with uber weapons against someone wearing greens they havent updated since they were level 41.

    I was worried about that aswell, but after testing it against a raid tiered tank the mitigation isnt a huge difference, i may be wrong, but at least its a start, because believe me, the difference between t2 pvp dagger and a raid dagger is enormous.

    Sooooo, after you've cleared all of the end game content and farmed gear from all of the raid bosses, THEN your dps will be competitive? Well, that's brilliant!

    So many people come up with ways to making rogues dps slightly better, but it always requires T2 gear and a rotation that is too complicated to enjoy having to perform. Face it, until Trion fixes rogue dps, its going to be subpar with other classes. Anything we can do, they can do so much better and with half the thought put into it.

    It doesnt matter what you have or what you do, the fact that Mages and Warriors can just button smash without getting energy starved or deplete mana fully and top the DPS charts while us Rogues have been spending weeks to come up with complex builds and very hard rotations just to break even with Mages and Warriors. Then in doing so people are now complaining that Rogues dont need a buff because we're finding these complex builds that we shouldnt even need just to break even while being energy starved the entire time. These builds should be putting us over the top with all the time spend crunching numbers and theorycrafting. So no... you're wrong.

    So the secret to being able to do the same DPS as other classes in regular tier 1 gear is to acquire a Greenscale weapon?

    Excellent, good to know. I'll go get right on that.

    I'm saying you get more of a boost from it, more so then other classes do. I'm sorry if there was a misunderstanding. It certainly closes the gap, putting rogues on par with other gsb equiped classes.

    so lemme get this straight. a rogue has to be carried from t2 all the way through greenscale and then ninja a raid dagger and THEN they will have the same dps as a fresh 50 warrior in all blues from cc/ap? sounds awesome now where these 19 people who are carrying me this whole time?

    I probably should have expected this kind of reaction on the forums. However in t2 gear you can pull 850ish on the fotm nb build. Which I'll provide because it doesn't seem to be as popular as I thought it was.

    Aswell as the standard macro:
    Cast Puncture
    Cast Dusk Strike
    Cast Twilight Force
    Cast Ebon Fury
    Cast Primal strike

    Your welcome.

    Care to post a parse? I don't care about your build, I just want to see definitive proof you are doing 1k DPS with this dagger.

    Also, what is the dagger's DPS?
