    Default [GUIDE-ROGUE] Rangersab 1400-1500+ Sustained ST DPS (Video Guide) + Bonus Info!



    [GUIDE-ROGUE] Rangersab 1400-1500+ Sustained ST DPS (Video Guide) + Bonus Info!-5-min-1.5k.png

    41 Ranger / 24 Sab / 1 Sin

    Buffs:
    Feral Instincts
    Virulent Poison

    The general idea is to use Scatter Sticky Bomb/Detonate and Ace Shot to trigger Shadow Fire and then use the hard-hitting Shadow Fire and Time Bomb with their multiple combo points along with Opportunity from Ranger to recharge your charges with Satchel Charge so that you can perpetuate the cycle and sustain high ST DPS.

    Use Raptor pet. Keep up Ace Shot. Keep up Piercing Shot. Keep up Bestial Fury by using Headshot once a minute.
    Your pet has 85% AoE damage taken reduction and if it dies you can instantly resummon it with Hasten Call.

    ST Macro:
    #show Final Countdown
    suppressmacrofailures
    cancelbuff Grand Explosion
    cast Shadow Fire
    cast Detonate
    cast Scatter Sticky Bomb
    cast Ace Shot
    cast Final Countdown
    petattack

    Ace Shot is simply in the macro because it hits harder than Flashbang in ST and just as hard as Quick Shot. It shouldn't go off with the macro because you should have charges for Scatter Sticky Bomb so you have to intentionally and separately apply Ace Shot.

    AoE Macro:
    #show Final Countdown
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast [notactive] Grand Explosion
    cast Detonate
    cast Scatter Sticky Bomb
    cast Flashbang
    cast Final Countdown
    petattack

    Pet Macro:
    #show Hasten Call
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Hasten Call
    cast Call: Blood Raptor

    Feel free to ask questions.

    You sure that macro is firing off everything?

    Your CD of Final Countdown is at the bottom below Flashbang, which is an instant. I don't see anything going off after that. If you are going to macro all of this, you would want to move your petattack, Final Countdown and Dice up top. You should also add the specific attacks for the pet. I would think the macro should be this:

    #show Final Countdown
    suppressmacrofailures
    petattack
    petcast Charge
    petcast Rend
    petcast Razor Lash
    petcast Bloodied Blow
    cast Final Countdown
    use Maelow's Loaded Dice
    cast Shadow Fire
    cast Detonate
    cast Scatter Sticky Bomb
    cast Flashbang

    Also, Shard of the Planes is better. It procs so much it stays up always.

    I am currently using the King of the Iron Fist trinket because it gives me 37 AP and 0.42% crit all the time in this build whereas Shard of the Planes does have the occasional downtime. Feel free to use whatever trinket you prefer!

    The buff from Ranger, you get it whenever you cast Headshot. (12s per combo point, so it lasts 1minute at 5 combo points)

    Seems pretty strong
    Is this a single macro rotation?

    Would you mind going into a little more detail on when to use what?

    Edit: Also, what about Head Shot. Should that debuff be kept up in order to increase pet damage?

    Default build

    thanks a lot for the build first off. It's nice to do something other than straight sab. Couple questions, why scatter over fragmentation? seems like same damage for less charges. Also you mention "opportunity" from ranger, I can't find that anywhere lol. Thanks for your help

    Scatter because it does more damage and because of "Scattered Flurry" which helps proc Shadow Fire and your Poison. Compare for yourself .

    what about splinter shot? you avoided 2 points on thrill of the kill (10% dmg)

    edit: and piercing shot?

    You can test both of those options. I did and they were underwhelming.

    I'd recommend dropping a point out of Blood Rage and into Piercing Shot. Pet damage is already awful and the armor reduction is about a 5% gain for physical specs at this level.

    I am staying steady about 920-950 DPS over a 10 minute parse with 669 Attack Power. Does that seem about right?
