    Default Why 5 NB over 5 RS??

    Just curious why everyone is using 5 NB for dps sub soul over 5 RS. Unseen fury and Burning rage both do the same thing, increase weapon damage and attack power by 10%, but with RS you get a port. I find shadow **** pretty useful so I was just wondering if there was a reason to go NB over RS.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    The innate damage-per-point scaling in NB is higher than RS.
    For every point in NB, you get +1% damage. For every point in RS, it's +.75% or something to that effect.

    Even worse, it's 1% and 0.5%. Basically you give up 2.5% damage for a shadow shift.

    I'm kinda amused the op typo'd shadow shift and got it filtered.

    Its kind of a minor trade off. If you're looking for absolute highest damage, you'd want to do 5 NB.

    5 RS would cost you 2.5% damage from the gifts, but you'd gain a hp buff and a small amount of bonus endurance/armor/resistances from the RS gift.

    Which subsoul is better for your in your raid is entirely situational.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~
