    Default Prime - Lv50 Sab guide

    Hola!

    Recently hit 50 and after completing multiply experts and being asked on stream how I play sab I made a video guide!

    NOTE: Yes you might play it slightly different or with a different spec and thats cool let me know, constructive criticism is ace, elitism is not.

    Enjoy!

    I am very much over Sab but it is the best trash spec on Prime.

    Implosion engine and stun grenade can target players. I macro mine to cast @focus and focus the tank.

    On longer fights, is it higher dps to use all your charges to try to keep annihilation up every 4 GCD or does the extra damage synergy of the other bombs make them as "charge" efficient as annihilation? Scatter doesn't even appear to work as far as "detonate once for each bomb on target".

    Trust me I hate it, I've tried to find something that out does it. I've played with other sabs that follow the annihilation tactics, I've never seen one do more damage! But I've never gave that tactic a try. If you follow this rotation scatter will do most of your damage it's insane.

    I'll give the annihilation play style a go

    Frag>anni>detonate
    Time bomb asap when proccd without wasting gratuitous combo points
    Cloud maker when proccd
    Try to avoid flashbang spam due to overspending of charges
    Last ditch effort when at minimal charges.
    Satchel charge is only finisher.

    If aoe then just anni detonate spam following the same procc priority as listed above. Everything should be dead before you run out of charges.

    That sums it up as a rotation/priority, but there's a lot more going on if you want to min-max it.
