    Default Calling all Theory Crafters

    I know that we are usually very quiet due to 1.5 nerfs right before patch day and 1.6 nerfs, BUT i need to know the new specs of 1.7 viable specs and top specs, maybe some parses, maybe some nude pics, no definately not any of those unless they are off zyzyx. Just functions of the spec and a general attitude towards it would be fine.

    INSERT ZYZYX, GYLE, HOKO, AMON HERE

    Rogues in our guild have come up with something pretty interesting and new, but will have to test it out in a raid environment first. And even then if its good i wont be posting it here.

    No but that might be worth testing out actually, bet a DD buffed Empowered Shot hits like a truck.

    51ranger/15bd with trickshot + compound attack for AoE and ShadowFire/Splinter + Deadly Strike for ST.

    Sounds inconvenient to use a mix of melee and ranged abilities in same rotation without close quarters combat.

    Sounds like Gyle is using a little high school psychology to trick you guys into thinking of builds for him, then he can just claim anything he likes was "what he was thinking of."

    Wont work, at least from what i have been able to tell. I tested that out, not 51 ranger, but a ranger MM BD hybrid and trick shot just sucks up way too much energy to be worth it i think.

    32NB/17bd/17sin
    Fiery Chains/Weapon Flare + Compound Attack. As a bonus Serrated Blades and Hellfire/Smoldering.

    Could be our best AoE.
    But sucks at ST.

    Well. Nightstalker pts can be spent somewhere else.
    it's about the idea of the build...

    And either more dex from BD or armor penetration, but a lot of the damage is elemental based.
    Minor changes.
