    Default best melee dps?

    well i have leveled a rogue and done quite a bit of content with it. i started by running as a bard, then dps, then good dps, and now i am finally geared and experienced enough to be tank. my question though is whats the best melee dps for aoe and st mixed for a rogue? i am running the blinkblade spec and macro's found in zyzyx's rogue bible but i feel it doesnt do as much as it should (1250st, 2500aoe) where my warrior in really crappy dps/expert tank gear with 0 raid pieces does 1500dps st and 4k aoe with the 51/9/6 champion spec how do i get more rogue dps as melee? i have tried bloodstalker and it did less than my blinkblade, probably cause i dont have a crystal for my dps but what gives?

    You are doing something wrong if your numbers are that low. That or your gear isn't as good as you say.

    1) do you blink every 9-10 seconds?
    2) What is the dps on your weapons (mh and oh)
    3) Are you staying in melee?

    Honestly, you should just run mandancer and do about as much dps as blinkblade without all of the hastle.

    i blink at least every 15 seconds usually around 10 though, they are both 40dps weapons from gsb (dagger and axe neither are relics), i would prefer to stay melee as i find it more enjoyable but due to lack of dps i may go 51ranger/15mm/0sin

    You need to blink every 8-9 seconds. If you don't, then you're losing a crap-ton of damage.

    You could try the 49Nb 17sin build maybe it will work better for you. I am enjoying the build I use to hate NB but now I come to really like it and find that I am running it more and more when I am not on interrupt duty or something else.

    Yeah same here I'm running 49nb for my melee and 51 rng for when ranged is more viable. BS is too much of a head ache with the constant blinks just for an extra 200 dps.

    there are fights where at least 1-2 rogues running BS is required due to mechanics and dps checks

    Laethys is one of them

    BS also provides +5% crit to the raid.

    Why I can get close and if your group dps is so bad you need a bs over a NB you have issues anyways. The gasp is no where near that big between the builds. The 5% crit can be covered by the NB at a slight dps loss for the NB for a raid dps increase.

    Warriors already give that +5% crit.
