    Default [2.6] Darkmaester's "Reapest" DPS Build - 41 Reaver / 35 Tempest / 0 Riftblade

    Like most of my specs, I made this spec to be ridiculous. It is. Ignore my action bars, I copied this character before polishing the bars.

    Spec: http://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#6...xkg/Vkk22yEO/2

    Buffs:
    Enhanced Conductivity
    Empower
    Storm Blade
    Crest of Abyss [Armor]
    Binding of Affliction [PVE] / Binding of Shadow [PVP]

    Macros and Abilities
    #1. Boom
    #show Infestation
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Infestation
    cast Explosive Infestation
    cast Delayed Pulse
    cast Shadow of Dread
    cast Electricity Blast

    #2. Corruption
    #show Dire Corruption
    suppressmacrofailures

    Other abilities

    (for pvp)
    Binding of Death
    Binding of Shadow

    Rotation
    2 Block Rotation, 15s each. When you're channeling LT, backup to at least 3 yards for SoD range. Once you cast Infestation, you're on a timer and it's tight. After you cast CP, it's generous.

    (0 AP) - Lightning Torrent
    [Dire Corruption (3)]
    [Block 1]
    Infestation - Explosive Infestation - Delayed Pulse - Shadow of Dread - Electricity Blast - [Arc (3)]

    [Warnings Etc.]
    This does ridiculous threat, despite none of the abilities generating additional threat. You will need to false repose frequently, but the best time for it isn't necessarily in the optimal part of the rotation. I prefer to use it before I use the corruption macro. This does high burst, and as such it does well in PVP, and on damage buffed bosses. This is by no means the best DPS spec in the game, but it's surprisingly competitive.

    This build does AOE damage. You can use Plaguebringer to do even more. It is ill-advised to use this on Kain, due to P1. It is ill-advised to use this on Matriarch, due to Childe breaths.

    Due to low CP, the PTS Test Gear pulls lower numbers. CP is very important.

    Does not generate additional threat? What? You use Reaver abilities. Of COURSE they generate additional threat. All tank abilities do.
    Burst before or after Rift implosion, never both.

    Look at that HP! I might try this spec for PVP/solo maybe. Reaver abilities will cause threat issues when raiding.

    Why didnt you go for the 10% armour resist by slipping skyfall into there with its passive in the tree?

    2 reasons - 1-Skyfall is a DPS loss when compared to Stumbling Corruption. 2-In order to place it into the rotation, you need to clip LT and get rid of SC.

    surprisingly good damage in that screen shot. but ya you are using a ton of reaver abilities which all deal a ton of threat. would highly not recommend this unless your tanks are quick with taunts and never on a fight with multiple targets (as that would really make your tanks hate you)

    could be fun for pvp for sure though

    I had actually changed that (but can't edit it) to move the point from Immunization, because it's useless. You need the DOTs for this spec.

    Isn't it a DPS gain to move the point in Explosive Infestation to anywhere in Tempest, granting you Close Training?

    Not even close. 10% more damage is nowhere near as good as the raw damage from explosive infestation.

    Mostly becasue you already have...55 from gift, 10% dot, 10% non physical, 5% range, 3% all, 10% non-phys, etc, etc, etc. adding up to a pretty big amount.

    Damage % is the opposite of mitigation. The more you have, the less an increase is worth overall.

    My question is this: if you put on your Warlord/Paladin gear and play this spec, could you do neat DPS while tanking (if only experts)?

    I love WL/Pal, but sometimes I want to try new things!

    Eh... just looking at gift bonus.

    This

    65.5 End
    41 arm
    82 res

    Warlord/paly

    83,25 End
    55.5 Arm
    111 Res

    Tempest only packs 3% mit, but warlord has quite a bit more in the tree.

    So... yes? If you over gear it MORE then in Warlord Paly?

    I mean, you've got Blood Fever[/QUOTE] and plague bringer so it's pretty much impossible for you not to be able to keep threat.

    Of course, you'd need to slightly adjust the point spread to drop dps to pick up some more mitigation from Reaver. Mostly just get 5/5 Power from the masses. Unless you REALLY out gear the content even more. And 0 VK, obviously.

    Such is life! I might just drop one of my other less-used specs just to play with this. I can see it being pretty awesome once they make all the changes to Reaver, anyway.

    tested on IDH, matriarch and pvp months ago.

    36temp (+10%dmg from close training, bonus dps on ST, bonus on pvp to support melee dmg)
    38-40 reaver
    0-2temp

    u can replace offensive blast by a melee skill to build swords without consuming arc(thunderous kick or ravaging strike)


    pvp WF: enough to disturbe a healer with st dps (* specialy arc pre nerf) and decent cleaves. decent heal cd if alot of targets.
    pvp cq: take attention but not solid to survive.
    pve: agro issues on matriarch but good to troll with a semi tank spec that compet dps players lol. like 3kdps Under hybrid tempest on st dps.
