    Default 32 NB/23 Sabo/11 MM - Best single target pvp dps?

    With Heat Retention, once you use a combo point awarding ability 5 times your next finisher does 30% more damage.

    For Saboteur charges, you have to put 5 charges on an enemy to get enough burst to kill them so you will almost always get the +30% damage when you detonate.

    Also, with Nightblade being at level 32, you get most of the good abilities to finish people off as well as Fell Blades which causes healing on the target to be 50% less effective. Taking the Marksman soul allows you to use your auto attack on the enemy for this effect.

    Also, with Smoldering Blades, you will have some DoTs on the enemy as well in case your detonate does not finish them.

    An extra little perk is that if you get a crit off with your bow/gun then your attack power increases by 25% which increeases your charge damage.

    The only drawback I can see from this build is you have no CC breaks

    I am not sure if you'd gain more then having assassin spec though, since poisons now go towards raising the damage of your attacks. At lvl 41 I crit for 2500+ damage with annihilation bomb with 18 points into assassin, the rest in sabo and the infiltrator soul added for the 0 point mez/stun/root breaker.

    Default NB has an option like that as well

    NB does the same as the Sin does, sin takes 18 points or so to reach the increase to poison by 15%, but NB does that in 10 points. NB's 2nd teir talent ups the damage of finishers by 15%, now it will take a little testing the Sin option could do more if it gives each charge 15% boost then you detonate, but the 15% boost to your detonate might do more overall than the Sin bonus. It will just take a bit of trial and error to see which one provides the best bonus.

    It is not working like you think.

    30% is only on detonate not on charges, so your build is useless.

    lol, isnt that what he said? charges give combo pts right? 5 combo pts equals 100% chance for a 30% dmg bonus on detonate which is exactly what he wants. seems pretty far from useless to me.

    What they're saying is that the majority of your damage come from the charges, not from Detonate, and therefore the 30% bonus doesn't help as much as you think.

    Plus, you'll want to use your CP for a better finisher like Deadeye and detonate your charges in another way, like with the A-bomb
