    Default 51 Ranger!....?

    I haven't had the sourcestones (or willingness to ruin my melee engine) to try out 51 ranger with the Predatory Soulstone.

    Does anyone know how it is comparing to 51MM on Dummies, or have any Murdantix parses of the two builds in equal gear?

    I'm assuming 51Rng/15MM, or 51Rng/10MM/5RS depending on how Ranger scales with AP.

    Any input on the scaling/viability of this build would be awesome, although I'm assuming that it takes a huge hit because like all builds without the 38pt Marksman ability it is incredibly starved.

    Also if there are any other builds (40/26 rng/MM or 28/38 rng/MM) that are parsing well I would like to hear about them also =D

    All of these builds parse higher than MM or ranger.

    Now, if you are one of those rogues that doesn't like to melee, my suggestion would be get a Predatory Soul Stone, put it in a source machine stacked with T2 AP lessers, and run both 51 MM/15 rng, and 51 Ranger, use MM for single target and ranger for AoE.

    In really bad gear Ranger parses even or slightly higher than MM single target, but as your gear improves Ranger falls further and further behind because the pet does not scale.

    Tried last night in PTS 51 ranger/15MM and parsed selfbuffed with no stones, 2.1K DPS. that is ST.
    Looked good if you want a pet.
    For aoe... I didn't liked it.

    Yeah I have and use all of those builds every week in HK...was more of a question about 51 ranger compared with 51 MM as a ranged spec.

    And also, 2.1k ST doesn't really give me any idea of comparing the two if you don't tell me how much the other build is doing for you. That could either be very high or very low depending on your gear ;)

    There's really only 1 way to test it out.. try it in a raid.

    I found that ranger parses higher on the dummy with no consumables with fervor, however when I added whetstones MM pulled ahead again. The pet gains nothing from the consumable.

    I decided it wasn't worth testing. To really know how it does I'd try it in an actual raid... the scaling of the pet will decide whether it's worth it so there's reall only one way to find out.
    I rite a gooded guide for rouges.

    Yeah I would get a lot more chances to test it but I'm the off-tank in my guild so I spend most of the good parse fights tanking
