    Default 44 Sab - 3/3 Poison Potency vs 5/5 Blazing Fury

    So generally 44 Sab (the ranged Sab spec) uses 44 Sab/20 Sin/2 NB.. but what I'm wondering, since at range you don't always get auto attacks when applying charges due to some stupid reason that ranged auto attacks don't always work while throwing charges like melee auto attacks do.

    Wouldn't the build be more efficient if you took the 3 points out of Poison Potency as it's less likely to cause damage and put them into Blazing Fury, giving you an extra 15% damage to combo builders (your charges) all the time vs 6% in the standard build. Just something I ran across when observing the standard 44 Sab build, was hoping for some input on the subject.

    Basically just wondering if 44/20/2 or 44/17/5 would pull higher numbers. Open to any thoughts or suggestions :3

    Also wondering if maybe at least standing in melee for auto attacks (when possible) with ranged Sab to cause Serrated Blades procs and get poison damage would be better all around. I am still kinda new to the ranged Sab spec, but I assumed you were just supposed to stand and spam charges and detonate. :P

    As in 100000000000 Threads before....

    Poisen Potency increases the DMG auf your spike charges by 15%....because spikes are like poison..so their is no need and its of course fatal to take out these 3 points..your spike charges do 30-40% of your overall DMG!

    SO long Nynja

    Germany

    p.s.: Further more understanding....Blazing Fury increases the dmg caused by detonate...and not of the dots from spike and schrapnel!

    Thanks for the info, didn't realize Poison Potency effected Spike Charge, I don't understand how Blazing Fury effects Detonates damage though as it says "Increases the damage of your Combo Point generating abiilities by X%"

    2 NB? Should be 2 Ranger for the crit boost and so you can use your ranged weapon DPS for charge damage.

    Actually Nynja...Poison Potency effects ALL sab charges. Not just Spike Charge.

    Learn to Sab. It's been this way since beta 6 lol....

    So why did trion put a red frame around the schrapnel dot and not a green one?? xD

    I just wanted to underline on a concrete example why it is not allowed to take these 3 points away from PP sozu...

    This. NB is not ranged sab, Ranger is. Also charges are poison based. In pvp if you get charges on you you can cleanse them off you. It effects all your charges and its a huge boost.

    Here is what your ranged saboteur build should look like:

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...xkoR.0VMcxcb.M

    As mentioned already:
    - Poison Potency's 15% bonus to poisons affects charge damage, due to their being classified as poisons. This change was made in beta and was intended.
    - You should be using Ranger for the 2 remaining points, not Nightblade. If you want to melee as a saboteur, use the sabdancer spec.
