    Default DPS trinket before T3

    I have the DSM but sincei run Sab I have to rely on Auto Attacks to get it to proc, so what's the best ranged dps trinket?

    I still prefer words of war over any of those trinkets.
    Retired due to lack of PVP content and boring/repetitive game mechanics.

    best trinket in game period. for sabo the event trinket is best since none of the proc trinkets will proc for you, you need stats for sabo or just do like me and ignore the trinket slot while being a sabo. if you don't have words of war or the event trinket, you might as well not have one at all.

    shard of planes and hylas trinket will proc some, maybe enough to be worth equipping, but none of the other ones do jack for saboteur.

    So you're saying Words of War > Shard of Planes in a PVE setting? Considering the 1.5 min downtime of Words of War?

    yes, especially since you can time it with your hardest hitting abilities/cooldowns. 250AP is many times > than 41AP.

    You're right actually

    Just noticed Words of War has an in-built 16 AP already.

    so Shard of Planes, assuming it's always on, will only give an extra 25 AP for 90 secs.

    The other 30 secs, Words of War will give an extra 225 AP while it's up

    Back to Codex I go....

    Trinkets like Old Thieve's Mastertools do proc off sab charges. They just proc when you detonate them rather than apply them. Because of the internal cooldown on proc trinkets you'll generally see them proc every other detonate.

    Shard of Planes has very high uptime as a Sab, but the Codex revered trinket is still better. Even if it didn't have the 16 AP on it, it would still be better. 250 AP for 30 seconds on a 2 minute cooldown is roughly equivalent to having a passive 62.5 AP. It's actually better since you can time it for when you use other cooldowns, during burn phases, when you have an archon pop flaring power, etc.

    Well anyway, here are the rogue trinkets... i have top 4 and parse the same with top 3
    the 4th one is some what a noob trinket in my opinion, i used it when i was few points short to 34% crit... just because i liked the fact that i had 34% :P
    The last one is BiS but is currently unobtainable for me

    They need to fix Alsbeth's AP/SP trinket. How an epic trinket from the "hardest" NPC in the game is worse that a rare trinket from a PVP reputation is odd.
