    A rank 8 with the second highest healing taken using shrapnel charges on the bridge m.eans rogue dps is fine? Lol. Its not every game you get clueless ppl who stand together to get aoed and its not a way to judge a rogues poor damge compared to the 3 other classes.

    Thats exactly the excuse they used to get cabs nerfed.. Saying their damage was high because people were together..

    I've yet to be beaten out in dmg when I play 51 lock with half decent heals to keep me up during a stun. Anyone can get high kb/dmg with aoe with a bit of luck....

    I'm only rank 5 too, can't imagine how stupid it would be with rank 8 gear.

    Good performance, but doesn't really prove anything. The top damage defiant had so much less damage than your top two people that this was clearly just rolling baddies. Not to mention, I see that they had a whopping TWO Warriors on the scoreboard? Throw the usual 4-5 over there and this SS would very likely have told a different story.

    Furthermore, judging from the quickbar, it looks like this is probably a PvP Sabodancer type build, which just exemplifies one of the major problems people have with Rogues right now - that it takes a finisher that buffs the next 3 CP's by 105% damage in order to compete with other classes in PvE and PvP.

    Going to guess the build was a little like this: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...A0o.Vcxchq00zk

    Keep up GP while planting charges, Shadow Assault/Stalk for a Deadly Dance, Shadow Step out, Charge, drop GP, and detonate. Blade Tempo as necessary. Rinse/Repeat. Outside of a bridge fight or the escalation WF, it would probably be useless.

    Yep, using one now for Escalation WF. It's a useful build, but at the end of the day it is less survivability and more effort than a Mage or Cleric doing the same type of AoE. Damage is probably higher statistically, but ends up being lower because of cleanses, people dying before detonate, etc etc. Also much harder to play with a bad team than most builds. Using 26 Sab, 21 BD, 19 Assassin.
