    Default Can a nightblade/sab combo work?

    Working on a baby rogue, up to 40 now and mostly been playing around with nightblade... though wanting to try out Sab just because it seems interesting.

    Was thinking about staying on a non-physical damage kick... and not looking at raiding anytime soon, but thinking more for T1/T2 dungeons and just general duo play.

    Is this build possible to work - I'm sure there's room for optimization since I'm not real familiar with sab mechanics yet (just started playing with that last night):

    Basically the thinking is something to the effect of
    5cp(get hellfire blades going)>Deadly Strikes
    Embers Chargex5>Detonate
    5cp>SoD
    Splinters Chargex5>Detonate

    repeat?

    You're losing out on too much damage from 2/2 Magnify Pain and 3/3 Poison Potency. It can work, but it won't work as well.

    Also, I haven't tested this, but I don't think charges proc Weapon Enchantments or Scourge of Darkness, since they're not considered "weapons".

    I was playing a little bit with it at my level (though having ranger instead of BD)... and yeah dropping charges on it wasn't putting hellfire on... I THINK detonate had a chance to? and SoD I didn't have yet to test - but I think it'll proc once i hit detonate off all charges and the detonate and the charge booster proc - so that'd up the burst nicely I think?
