    Default Introducing the >>>MANDANCER<<<! New 1.5 Single target dps spec!

    Brought to you here first by Zyzyx!

    The mandancer is a premiere 1.5 single target dps spec!

    32bd/19sin/15mm


    Macros include (but not limited to):

    CP builder:
    cast backstab
    cast precision strike
    cast puncture
    cast quick strike
    cast keen strike
    cast swift shot

    Finisher:
    cast deadly strike
    cast rapid fire shot
    cast hasted shot

    Needs testing on how much the armor pen gives you ,but if I'm correct it could become the single most important synergy on future bosses.

    First parses beating sabdancer by 300+!!!!

    well possibly, but its 5% ArPen vs 20% dmg increase PLUS when you blow Poison Malice (which is almost a burst dps mechanic when paired with blade tempo), i just dont see the numbers adding up, not to diss your build, just trying to see what you see in it

    5% armor penatration on ALL my damage

    or

    20% increase to 4% of my dps?

    It's a no brainer.

    Yes I switched to using my char transfered from live servers to get more accurate numbers.

    Come join us on the pts!

    EDIT: This spec is great for all those ppl that hate sabdancer ,but don't want to use a pet!!!!

    Are you just spamming those two macros or how do you use the build? I tested it and I don't get higher than sabdancer dps out of it, in fact I parse a bit lower than sabdancer. Is your gear bad for sabdancer with lots of procs from hits such as DH trinket and low crit rate?

    Thinking about taking a point from bd to put in assasin now. Double coup is pretty trashy.

    EDIT: Yes I am just casually hitting 2 buttons. I don't put much effort in when I dps.

    If you change 1 point I reccomend you create a new spec and name it "MANDANCER vol. 2"

    Nope. Baneful touch will beat that 5% armor pen on any amount of armor, because poison damage already ignores armor.

    Simple solution dun. I removed the point in counterbalance and threw it in sin for 31/20/15. (was not happy with how double coup performed)

    EDIT: Mandancer name originated in college. One is said to be mandancing when they spontaneously start pelvic thrusting behind a female without them noticing.
