    Items that favor crit, seeing as AP doesn't scale well.

    Definitely anything with critical rating. I been doing some tests with AP, and I keep concluding that it is complete junk.

    With Magnify Pain, Cruel Vengeance, Bestial Fury, Prey on the Weak, and Marksman's Pedestal going (total of 20% increased critical bonus damage and 40% increased damage from combined buffs).... switching on and off the 46 AP instinct only changed my Quick Shot critical hits from 510 to 518 damage, only increasing critical 5 CP Head Shot critical hits from 1514 to 1558 for a 44 damage increase on a 5 point finisher.

    So yeah, AP doesn't seem to be scaling too well.


    Edit: Forgot to test with Shadow Fire up.
    Damage increase on critical hits, difference between the two being 46 AP difference

    Head Shot: 1882 -> 1937
    Quick Shot: 633 -> 644

    So, 46 AP can increase your Quick Shot critical hits by 11 damage and 5 CP Head Shot critical hits by 55 damage as long as you keep up all your buffs up, and pray for crits.

    It has been concluded that the best dps trinket for rogues is the non-epic Old Thieve's Master tools from Dichrom in xDSM. Since AP scales so poorly this beats out the epic shard of planes from xRD.

    Don't believe what is says about melee attacks; I'm a sabo and it procs for me.

    Curious on that point.

    I have the level 50 epic accessory trinket from the world event (Icon of Eternal Darkness I think its called)

    Better or worse then the DSM trinket?

    dsm trinket is best for melee period, for ranged however it doesnt do near as much dps so keep that in mind.
    Useful Rogue guides since I don't want to answer 50 billion questions anymore:
    Marksman, Ranger, Nightblade, Blink'Blade, Asstalker, Assdancer, and finally The Hoko Spec™

    Wasn't sure overall since I was curious if the flat stat boosts from the icon overpowered the chance on proc.

    I've been more ranged lately though due to the fact I've been stuck with a slew of tanks who love to MOVE MOBS AROUND ALL THE TIME WHEN NOT NEEDED.

    After looking at my combat log it seems the DSM trinket only procs on my detonates. Which isnt that amazing. But it's still something, and better than those minimal AP boost proc ones.

    WTB useful epic trinkets and greater essences.

    the AP ones will proc if you have ranger or marksman in your sab build and keep auto atk up. they have a near 100% uptime even for ranged auto atk.

    Words of war. I think it's whispered silence for guardians.

    Are you referring to Master Thieves' Tools?
