    Default 46sab/20sin/0x guide for you to test on PTS with

    spec: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0M...cb.EVMcEdxkkRz

    macros:
    #show Spike Charge
    cast Expose Weakness
    cast Spike Charge
    startattack

    #show Blast Charge
    cast Expose Weakness
    cast Blast Charge
    startattack

    rotation:
    Spikex5>Blastx5>Blastx5
    repeat

    for melee, switch rng for nb or some other melee soul

    range #'s using HK relic gear, no crystal and fervor + whetstones = 1990dps

    melee #'s using same setup with nb instead of rng = 2100dps

    You are welcome.

    with full t1 raid equip with only assassin buffs 1160 dps over 4 min. But without fervor i skipped 5x blast cause at some point you wont clip spike charges.

    old sabdancer 1280 dps / 4 min, with same buffs + 40 dex over.

    So... you probably screwed up your numbers when you gave yourself that +40 dex buff on sabdancer (unless I read it wrong), if we're talking about comparing dps in raid situations. You'lll probably have a bard giving you +dex and str while using either spec.

    Some misguided people didnt notice changes and think 44 sab is still better or vastly underestimate serrated blades and think they could do the same from range

    All this feedback has already been given to the devs so me posting it here has no barring on it getting nerfed.

    Yes, that is why I made it. From the spec, to the macros, to the rotations, I bet 99% of people are doing it wrong, hence why they are seeing bad numbers. Also people should always compare specs to sabodancer while under fervor, anything less is not a comparison since you have fervor or living energy in a raid.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.

    Why would anyone ever need macros for a build like this? Its like 4-5 keys...certainly not the most complicated rotation ive ever seen...probably one of the easier ones

    because casting EW is annoying as crap if it isn't part of a macro plus OTGCD abilities are meant to be macro'd

    Appreciate the post Hoko. Funny to see Sab is still the number one DPS spec after all these changes for melee and now it has an improved ranged variant.

    Just curious, why test in full HK relics? Wouldn't it be best to do full T1 raid? That's closer to median population. Scaling differences would effect your relative results.

    That would likely be because of the Relic Gear bag on the PTS...


    Also: Why Blast and not Shrapnel? Is Blast confirmed beating Shrapnel for ST on the PTS now?

    Yup

    Blast does 35% residual bleed, shrap 50%, but blast hits harder so works out ok
