    Default Sabodancer needs advice

    SO I have been reading sabodancer posts for months now and I keep seeing people posts huge numbers on some boss fights that i cannot match and I have some very good gear. Currently i have 4 piece pr5/6 with synergy crystal, fang/ inf fury. alsbeths bow, and words of war. I have 854 ap and 912 crit unbuffed. On plutonus best i have ever gotten was 1930, and murdantix i cannot seeem to break 1800 and yet i see people saying they easily break over 2000 with less gear than I. I use the standard rotation:

    punc, 3x spike, deadly, 2x spike, det, 5x shrap, det

    i have a separate macro to pop words of war, blade temp, poison malice, and a crit pot whenever FP is up or when they come off cd. I have gone over all possible raid buffs and we have them so am I missing something here or are people seriously over inflating their numbers?

    Debuffs up at all times on the mob? That makes a huge difference. What is your raid wide dps? I think that makes a difference on your performance too.

    Why are you using puncture before your deadly strike?

    Ya 1950 is solid man. The people who are posting such high numbers may be coming from a specific raid where everything was in perfect unison. If you're pulling 1950 and some debuffs/buffs are out of sync, then I think you have the potential to pull those high numbers you want.

    So yell at your raid for that :P

    fairly sure buffs are up all the time and plutonus isnt my biggest thing its more over murdantix where i cannot break 1800 and am usually at 1650ish but if this is more the norm then I guess theres nothing wrong.

    It's probably as others have said just baddies not keeping debuffs up.
