    Default Bard + Sab

    My main will be a 51 pt full support bard, but was toying around with some hybrids to see if there could be any interesting combinations usefull in certain situations.

    I made a combination going 34 points into bard to get to the single target mezz, plus some nightblade and Sab. Could the mezz be used together with Detonate from Sab to "mezz-nuke" hard single targets? I've never played a Sab, so don't really know much about the mechanics of it.

    OK, I see the burst damage from Sab from the video, but does setting the charges break mezz? Can you mezz a mob, stack 5 charges, detonate, then mezz again and repeat?

    Ahh, that makes sensse. I guess I was misled by the spell descriptions. The mezz says that any "damage" removes the effect, and Blast Charge says it does damage "when detonated"

    Edit: But what about 3 pts in Silent setup? Does that make any difference?

    You can stack 5 charges on a mob without getting any aggro though, I found that you kill them mob in 1 GCD doing that. Just 5 blast charges+anni bomb=instawin without ever being aggro'd.

    Similar, but I will save a few points for NB for the damage add. Since I heal myself all the time I don't need the health out of T1 on Bard tree.

    Should be fun!!

    One of the favorite gank tactics is to have stealth with paralyzing blow and foul play.
    So you steal, paralize, stack charges, detonate, foul play, stack charges, detonate.

    Its kinda nasty if the person has no help
