    Default Ranged PVE: Adapted Sozu Spec Wins

    Ridiculous really. Highest parses ever (for me). Totally energy starved, which is a good thing because it means this build stands to gain the most from raid buffs.

    Tested 51mm against it and had roughly the same parse, but no energy starvation at all which I feel means that raid buffs wont benefit nearly as much. Still messing around. And who knows what the next pts patch will bring.

    It might help if you posted a link or explained your build so people can critique it.

    it's the same point allocation as Sozu spec as far as ranger and sin souls go. It's simply adapted for the new mm talents. still 18 points there, but you have to give up 5 yds range. I'm fine with that. Look up Sozu spec in the forums if you don't know what it is and would like to critique it.

    Compared to what it used to do, I could live with that just to play ranged. In my gear it's beating sabD by 100ish.

    What gear do you have?

    I am using my gear from live. With the ranger greater I got up to almost with 50 dps of sab

    same. just live stuff. combo of r8 gear and t2 stuff that puts me at 300 +hit. but I don't have the ranger essence.

    Very nice, I'll have to try it out. The 4 point synergy crystal from HK also reduces the cast time of shadowfire and splinter to 1 second, so beyond waiting for energy to cast them they don't take longer to cast them a normal builder.

    Ranger greater would be nice too.

    Any idea on the ap/crit coefficients? Do you use expose weakness too?

    I wasn't using expose weakness on the dummy, but I think I would in a raid with all the buffs. Will have to wait for live since I don't have a pocket bard. Without buffs it's so energy starved that adding exposed weakness is just exacerbating the starvation and causing a dps loss.

    Not sure what you're asking with regard to coefficients.

    Yeah mayi the synergy crystals are really nice for ranger/mm and really bad for most everything else. I think itll be funny when we are all doing 3k dps in melee marsman in the near future.

    Good to hear. I havent messed around on PTS at all. I usually prefer to wait until things go live before I get my hopes up. But it's definitely nice to hear that Ranger is being brought up to snuff.

    It would be awesome if Ranger became the #1 spec. Why? So Dunsparrow would be forced to use the "Sozu spec". I just know he would go as far as gimping his raid just to NOT use a spec with my name on it. LOL!!!

    No wait...He would reallocate 1 point then call it the Dunranger and post it on the forums like he accomplished something in life.
