    Default Sinblade spec

    I figured I join the legion and help some. No QQing here. lol

    Spec: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1M...V0h.Vw0A0soRhb

    This build is for solo and not AoE.

    Naturally, this is the setup from PTS.

    Why?
    1) Contra Tempo is boosted
    2) Double Coup is beast
    3) DC and Blade Tempo on 1:45 timers and 21 second long (more burst dps)
    4) Annihilate (+15% AP) and Dauntless Stirke (+5% Crit) give 1 minute dps boost

    1 Hoko style macro:

    suppressmacrofailures
    startattack
    cast expose weakness
    cast precision strike
    cast backstab
    cast quick strike
    cast puncture
    cast poison malice
    cast keen strike
    cast double coup
    cast blade tempo

    Rotation is stupid simple:
    #1 Flash of Steel (or Stealth + Assassinate) - Macro - Macro - Macro - Annihilate

    #2 Macro - Macro - Macro - Macro - Macro -Dauntless Strike

    #3 Macro - Macro - Macro - Macro - Macro - Deadly Strike

    Repeat #3 until Annihilate wears off. Start over.

    Plz try this out. My dps without any outside buffs (Just gear only) was pretty good on Boss dummy (over 1340+). No soul specific synergy crystal was used as well which could make this a soild solo dps build.

    at least if you gonna make a Hoko Button™ do it right

    suppressmacrofailures
    startattack
    cast expose weakness
    cast backstab
    cast puncture
    cast precision strike
    cast quick strike
    cast keen strike
    cast poison malice
    cast double coup
    cast blade tempo

    backstab and puncture hit WAY harder than precision and quick strike, they should have a higher priority, especially for solo where stuff needs to die fast. and all off-gcds should be after on-gcd abilities, moved poison malice down, order of off-gcd abilities is irrelevant.

    p.s. poison potency only increases charge dmg by a noticeable amount, it should not be used in any non sab spec as it does not increase poisons by enough to warrant 3 points. you want 3/3 serrated blades, and double cross and physical trauma are great abilities.

    Sorry, Sinblade was already taken by assassin/nightblade combo. Copyright infringement going on here.

    Can't put multiple rhythmics in 1 button like that in 1.5 , because if you smash it, blade tempo with overright double coup with only 1 second uptime on double coup.

    Erm.. don't bother with Dauntless strike. It is over-written by bard motifs. Just Anni -> Deadly spam. Should up the dps even more.
    Split - Rogue Tank - Purge to Win
    GSB - 5/5 / RoS - 4/4 / HK - 11/11

    Yea, in a raid setting, I totally agree. One less finisher to use and it should even increase dps a little. Since I am testing without it, I had to use it.

    Only reason I moved Precision Strike and Quick Strike up on the macro is due to Double Coup (Upgrade) and the bigger damage bonus +75%.

    I will try it your way and see if it helps.

    To make use of Double Coup, you really need a separate macro with just Prec/quick/Keen (and maybe Flash at the bottom as a gap closer). Use that macro when Double Coup is up.

    Thst's a good thought. Could just seperate it for a solid dps burst when needed.

    I was just trying to simplified everything.

    I've gotten used to having a "BD Only" macro button, as I keep trying variations of 40 BD, and you def want BD Only button for when Dualism is up.

    best line ever! Clearly cloth/chain/leather is usable by all but plate is war only because they want to set warriors above the rest. WAR 4 LIFE!

    Like I said earlier, I was trying to make a 1 Macro aka "Hoko Style" and makes everything easier.

    I do like the second BD Macro for more burst dps.
