    Default Spike charge for 60 percent damage???

    Ran an expert and saw a rogue pulling godly numbers!!!! Looked at his damage and saw a ranger/sab combo using spike charge for the biggest damage. Wondering if a build something like this would pull those numbers:

    You're looking for this build.

    However, it only does such high damage due to a bug which will be fixed soon. Basically, Spike Charge is getting two and a half times as much of a damage boost as it should be from certain talents.

    So after this hot fix its back to MM/Rngr Hybrid? Not seeing much else for range dps specs. Will all "ST" Sabo builds be washed out as well?

    Most ST Sab builds (maybe all) are reliant on this bug, so probably.

    I'm hoping that we'll see buffs to 61 Ranger or MM in 2.2.

    chances are.. the 40/36 mm rngr builds will also suffer from the fix, as they include one of the bugged abilities in the rotation, no?

    Shadow fire is one of them so yea the hybrid uses it, a lot, but I haven't heard of it bugging in a ranger/MM build.

    That's the way I understood it too, that the bug was related to how bonuses applied to spike charge, no necessarily the bonus itself. So in theory( I have not tested) shadow fire should be WAI with other abilities.

    As I am not a fan of pet specs, any hope for a ST Sab build to survive with either MM or NB as subsouls?
