    Default Sabo PvE - 1 Detonate Point vs 5...?

    Since Detonate Points scales as the following (at lvl 27)

    1 Point: 62 Damage
    2 Points: 104 Damage
    3 Points: 146 Damage
    4 Points: 167 Damage
    5 Points: 209 Damage

    So wouldn't you theoretically do more damage doing a 1 point detonate over and over rather than stacking up to 5?

    2x 1 Point Detonate = 124 damage
    1x 2 Point Detonate = 104 damage

    thoughts?

    The dps of doing a 1 point detonate is indeed higher than a 5 pointer. This is a much bigger deal with charge booster. The downside in this is that it costs a huge amount of energy that is not practically sustainable.

    Exactly, since Detonate costs less mana the more the combo points you have.
    Play to Crush.

    you do 5 charges while out of combat for 0 nrg
    then you look at mob health
    if low you do 1 charger
    blasts
    if high you stack again
