    Default I am shopping for a new ranged AOE spec

    I am aware of the Saboteur spec's out there that do crazy AOE damage, but the rotation is not for me.

    Are there any alternatives out there for ranged AOE dps?
    There are eight species of Bear (Ursidae): Arctos, Americanus, Thibetanus, Maritimus, Helarctos, Melonleuca, Ornatus, Malayanus, Ursinus.
    Koalas are not one of them, not even close.

    Even if you run a sub optimal sab AOE rotation, (ie, skip steps to make it simpler), it will likely still out perform alot if not all the other souls.

    Tactician does look like alot of fun *winks*.

    If you are uncomfortable with the "clinical" way to play sab, try a few unorthodox things. It may be a healthy compromise and you may have a bit of fun doing it

    Going to try tactician soon, but as for "rain of arrows" thats a ground channel and left handed mouse and left handed hot keys means that is a no no, unless you have some trick for me to target it without a mouse.

    Guide writer's note: This is not the optimal rotation.


    Here is your one button sab aoe macro:

    cast anihilation bomb
    cast chemical bomb
    cast time bomb
    cast frag bomb
    cast splinter bomb
    cast embers bomb
    cast caltrops charge

    (just change the charge to spike for single target)
    (obviously use CD's)

    If you're referring to the "3 Timebomb Rotation", that one is died with the new 8s CD of timebomb.

    Still able to sustain 10k AoE damage on the 3 dummies in meridian.

    Thanks Zyzyx, I will give it a go. Still smarts a little but a pragmatic solution is always nice, and who knows I may grow to like it and go full on.

    Give sab a try please.


    I find blowing the f**k out of everything somewhat therapeutic.
