    what other specs will be viable? Is sabdancer still at the top?

    Sab is, and will always be, the only way.

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

    People will be posting the specs when it hits live.
    There are a few viable builds.

    Havent been able to test anything yet but from everything posted on the forums the last couple weeks it sounds like Sabdancer will still be one the top specs even though it got a slight nerf. Seems they focused on giving us more options, more specs, that can do Sabdancer dps.

    Sabdancer, 51mm, 38mm/28ran should all be good options with similar dps. 51 Assasin got buffed, may be decent single target melee. Nightblade, Bladedancer and Ranger will only be good in Hybrid specs. Sounds like straight Sab will suck.

    Marksman and Bard look to be the best Synergy Crystals imo.

    Rogues are useless. Delete your character.

    Why is the 51mm spec crossed out?

    EM change making casted spells reduce a major source of your dps. It's a theory if tests prove otherwise tomorrow ill un-x it.

    Just petition to have your character become a level 50 warrior. Worst they can say is no, and if it works you have an overpowered character.

    I've found that Warriors are like Feminists. They want equality when it suits them, but the rest of the time they want to be treated special.

    It's not that bad really - it's a dps loss for sure but not the end of the world.
