    Default Deadly dance question

    Hi. I am new to rift and have a question. Do channeled abilities like cadence, dusk to dawn and strafe benefit from deadly dance?

    Thanks. Some nice bursty options open up at level 34 ;-)

    D2D is a DPS loss, I believe. Most NBs only let it tick once (for the buff). If you really want to mix NB and BD, your burstiest burst will come from Deadly Dance buffed Dusk Strike spam (Ebon Fury).

    Worrying about dps loss at level 34 is futile.

    Habits are created early. Might as well make them good habits.

    Nightblade is a rough soul to mix with BD anyway since BD is designed to make CP builders hit harder with DD and NB DPS is mostly based on Blazing Strike. They are pretty mutually exclusive IMO. But as stated above, DD does in fact buff channeled abilities, in fact it can make Strafe hit very hard in a PvP scenario.

    Thanks for all the feedback. I have mostly played range on my rogue so far. I am thinking a couple of back to back +105% damage crit strafes will take down most mobs before I die ;-). Also should be better for cadence heals when I am experimenting with bard. The 15 second refresh charge ability in BD looks useful too.
