    Default New Sab?

    So, is there anyone kind enough to make a quick guide about the new Saboteur?

    Well, i don't mean to start another discussion regarding whether or not a change was needed, now that the new Sab is live, I'd like to know some basics about the rotation etc...

    Mashing one button does not really make interesting gameplay.

    Whether it is now is a different question.

    Maybe not "interesting" but it did the job for some pretty good non-melee aoe dps. Now with a 3 target AOE, wonder what the numbers will look like. Also the tree looks like it's been pruned, quite a bit.

    I thought that you were going to make one? Just read the re-do myself. Going to look at what's what and how it plays.

    hehe, it's a pain, all I know is that there's 4 utility abilities, stealth being the useless one, and one similar to Marksman's retreat. I know Trion wants to make it viable for PVP, but yeah. Not so appealing atm.

    Let's cry on our shoulders for a bit, and wait for a guide , to be safe, just get Tactman ready in case you need to AOE in a raid or dungeon

    Right now, Magelo's Soul Tree Calculator isn't updated this soul. I found the Implosion Engine interesting. "12 enemies with 20m are pulled to the target. May be cast on allies." Allies... hmmm...

    I think something along those lines was demoed on the livestream about a month or so back where you could pull or push players in/out of range with specific effects though I think this was for more PVP orientated situations, or comedy value....

    like I said, could be something they wanna see to utilize rogue in PVP, theres never pulls in any rouge souls, or it could be a mechanic in a 4.0 raid or dungeon, only trion knows the answer...

    Does anyone know if it's worth it to play sab atm? How is the damage? Is it better than tactman?

    Tactman is about 5-10% less damage to the previous sab on 8 target dummies but tactman's necrotic core isnt limited to targets, so it would do crazy dps assuming theres more than 8 targets... Forgot to mention, it also has a bunch of execution damage boost, sub 30% phase
