    Default Sabo dead?

    decided to reroll my sabo and im noticing considerably less dps then i use to have, so im assuming its eather a dead class or there is a new build for it any ideas or suggestions?

    Sabo is now 46 Sab/ 20 sin/ 0 Ranger. There is also a section on sabo and its new rotation in the guide in my sig. In fact, 46 Sabo played in melee range should even out DPS Sabdancer, or come very very close to it, depending on your gear.

    Both, build changed but doesn't change that much. It's pretty much dead.

    If you raid needs Incrim, it has a place.

    If you like the build it's perfectly fine when putzing around in 5-mans.

    sabo hk crystal is utterly garbage so it's fallen way behind while other specs have leapt forward

    i use it for estrode but most are running sabdancer it seems which i laugh at since ti is way less dps than 46sab on that fight but some ppl just dont get the memo i guess... also 51bd works fine on estrode if u just have to melee...

    it's not so much that sabo is dead, just that 51mm is good now and we all got sick of being pigeon-holed into sabdancer

    46sab/20sin is nice, acceptable dps and awesome utility

    No, sab is dead. Even for Estrode best to go 51 bladedancer, by about 400dps+...

    Matron, doubt sab can break 2800, much less hit what other bulids (plural) are doing.

    If you're into min/maxing, sab is dead beyond some people who like using sab for a 0 point soul in pvp for the snare. Trust me... I'm one of the few who likes sab, if it was viable I'd be playing it, but it's not even close.
