SB combat build opinions
Return to board index
This is the basic build.
I personally never liked it.. no Lethality:(
Last night my fellow guild mate in nearly the same gear (minor difference in ap for him, like 50 more and minor crit rating for me 0,5% more, same hit same ar.pen.) respeced for this and he was doing like 100 dps or more than me on the boss fight, after the fights he told me it he liked it very much.
So I will try this build and see what Im capable with it.
I would like to hear some opinions from others... do you use this build ? Why not ? Why yes ? How do you like it if you do use it? Were you able to compare its performance with other rogues specced the other way around? Whats the dps you can do on boss fight (don't forget your stats ap,crit,hit,arp,haste) (I was in naxx 25 btw)
Lethality is so overrated. The two combat specs are very very similar in dps. I was 7/51/13 when I dinged 80, and ran heroics with it until Greed dropped for me. I respecced then to 15/51/5 just because I thought it would be oh so much better since I had 5% more crit. In reality, spreadsheet showed a 0.6% dps increase from 7/51/13.
In the end, the difference is not worth it for me. I've got too used to the utility that dirty tricks and camo bring. The only thing I'll miss will be ruthlessness, but hey, I've played without it before...
I will have to investigate into the mathematics behind this; I personally would be
if the 30% damage to Rupture and the armor ignoring would out do the boosts from Ruthlessness and Lethality. If anyone wants me to bother i can get you the numbers.
As for my opinion, I find it extraordinarily hard to believe that this could have any hope in the world to out do Lethality and Ruthlessness. Thus I'm going to have to stick with my trusty old 15/51/5. Furthermore I highly doubt it's worth investigation due to the fact the with the talent tree revamps coming with the new patch I'm not even sure this build will be feasible I've seen at multiple junctures that RS is being re-shifted to 3rd tier of Sin tree (though as pointed out by KidB this is completely subject to change and invalidity so take it at face value) thus I
doubt this will be a viability in the future in anytime of PvE situation.
Take my opinion at whatever value you want but I've been playing combat for longer than a lot of people have been playing the game, so I'd have to say that the 15/51/5 build is far superior, that's just my 2 cents and for all i know I could be wrong.
Anyways there's my word on the subject :]

@KidB; Yeh, my bad, worded it wrong. (Fixed)
All right, I respeced, yesterday, sadly no raid yet, but I run a few heroics...
My dps is lower , but this was expected, since I could not run 2 full duration rupture even on bosses :D they just die too fast.
BUT the dps is not that much lower! Honestly i expected a big drop in HC-s but luckily it is not the case... look like the ar.pen even it out more than I thought.
Let's see what it can do in raids where I will be able to use rupture properly.

you take the time to actually run the spreadsheets on either talent point allocation, you will find, without a doubt, that 7/51/13 is more dps than 15/51/5 in every situation, usually by a margin of roughly 50-100 dps.
But we're too lazy for that, sheesh.
