    you are confusing me, nowhere am i saying this is THE variant, this is A variant that I happen to get the most success with. Reread if you think i said anything otherwise in the thread as I know i didnt.

    It's a good spec, but for me it's just such an annoying rotation and the fact that you have to be melee just while having majorly range talents for the majority of the dps; I guess it's such a paradox to me.

    I think eithr Dunsparrow and Hoko are brothers or are the same person. This is just too funny.

    I don't quite see how using the second backstab is worth using. I was under the impression that spike charge is the main source of single target damage for this build and adding that second backstab reduces spike charge uptime. Could you clarify this please?

    With tablet and fervor you will clip spike charge with puncture rotation (14GCD rotation, 15sec DOT duration), with the 2backstabs, you now have a 15GCD rotation, so impossible to clip spike. 2 backstabs also do significantly more damage than a single puncture.

    Not sure what Easymode and the RJ dude are getting so pissy about. Don't want to read thread? Don't.

    I guess you guys like the stream of "CAN ANYBODY TEACH ME HOW TO DPS I AM A NEW 50" threads

    If Hoko worked for Trion, all our rogue problems will be fixed.

    Hoko did start 2 threads for the same thing, for some odd reason. I JUST DON'T KNOW WHY!

    Curious minds want to know.

    Because people are sheep and someone has to lead them to the butcher's knife.

    Btw: This "build" is old and nothing new. For people to ask for it is stupid and lazy.

    lazy yes, but not stupid.

    for every genius you will find 99 "stupid" people. these forums have thousands of people going by, you still need to cater to those with lesser intelligence.

    also, it's not a guide unless the very first post in the thread has the guide, when people search they only search the title and the first boss, if you post a guide anywhere else, they will not see it at all and then come complain elsewhere, hence why i made the "new thread".

    im just glad new builds are beating this on 1.5 by a nice amount!!!
