    I have the same question about Sabos and other ranged rogues. I've been stacking crit; perhaps I need more AP?

    Or is there a certain crit threshold to shoot for, then stack AP?

    So far for ranged spec i like 38% crit self buff makes it like 50% in raid then stack ap for your finshers to hit harder

    if you use fiery spike in your rotation, stack crit, if you dont, stack AP. fiery spike eats up a deadly dance charge and does not scale with AP in the slightest, so adding it to your rotation is up to what you stack.

    yes

    which is why this spec is not optimal if you stack AP, you will do more dps as melee ranger, ive done extensive tests on this and have completely given up on BD, there is no build i can come up with that doesnt have nb in it and going nb is a dps loss if you dont use fiery spike...

    so if you like BD, stack crit, that is the bottom line.
