    Default PvP Saboteur Specs?

    What do you guys run? I've experimented with different specs and I think 51/15 with MM is the most effective. What do you guys run?

    The 11th point being spent in the speed buff correct? That sounds effective.

    i have actually done 13, 11, and 10 MM, personally i like 13 the best because it's so nice being able to get away from almost any fight if things start to go bad, i usually just run the 10/5 though because no matter which set up you run, if you're good you will be ok and i use it in pve a lot.

    OTD is pretty nice for certain raid mechanics and speed runs. Maybe nicer than 3% AP!

    Spec is a lot of fun to play, great AoE and control, especially during Port Scion bonus weekends.

    Still looking for the soul that you can slot in to clear the mark off of your head you spend much of the match with.

    Although that can be part of its own fun, trying to goad people into overextending.

    Players can't focus a marked player when they're dead. DPS harder.

    I've not tried a PvP Sab yet. People just use a rotation like the PvE or do people jsut use a select few attacks and repeat?

    I use mostly ember charges, as I focus on trying to help kill off the ungodly powerful warriors. Since warriors = the nastiest target in warfronts generally, ember is nice to use. It is earth damage which bypasses armor, and with a full 5 charge setup you'll take about 1/3rd of a geared warrior's life. You can then hit carpet bombing and blow all of your bombs on them. By this point they should be down to about 25% hp. If they dont' have a healer healing them, you/your team should be able to finish them off at this point.

    Things to remember for pvp with a sab:

    * Ember charges, they are your friend. (They also provide the aoe debuff of 5% extra damage from non-phys. This includes your anni bombs... btw)
    * Annihilation bomb > Frag for pvp.
    * 5 charge Spikes on a healer, to make them self heal
    * Timebomb, great for kiters.
    * Macro adhesive and chemical bombs together, and use them often.
    * Use aoe silence bomb on groups of healers/casters.
    * Don't try to be rambo, you're more of a pee wee Hermin. Staying hidden is your friend.
    * Make sure to have your mines down, to give you half a second try make a feeble chance to escape when someone notices you.
