    Default Spike bomb or Annil bomb with Carpet Bombing?

    The question is in the title. My parsing showed my Spike bomb very slightly above annil in terms of total damage per cast (I include damage from High explosives on Annil).

    Did anyone did the full maths on it?
    Is Spike bomb better to use on carpet bombing on annil bomb is better?
    (If we consider the 15 stacks from spike bomb is already on the targets)

    both in pvp, but spike bomb comes ahead in pve. i have burst macros with blade tempo/spike bomb/carpet bombing and the same macro with annihilation bomb, depending on the situation, but if you don't pvp there's probably no reason for that.

    Yeah no PvP.
    I'd love to know if someone did the maths, because on my parser, they both come close in terms of total damage.
    When I take a look at High explosives that I can get from Annil, it up the damage slightly, but then I keep 3 stacks of High explosives all the time by rotating Shrap bomb, Annil or Ember or Splinter so the DPS increased by High explosives on spamming annil is near to null while the numbers on Spike are pretty self explanatory.

    Anyone else that can confirm that spike bomb damage does more then annil bomb when using carpet bombing?
