I have been running the MM/Ranger spec - pretty much lovin' it and keeps me competitive (if not tops) and a few days ago I started noticing other rogues beating me in dps in Single Target fights. As I checked their abilities on the dps meter I was only familiar with the Ranger ones I saw listed.. head shot, splinter shot.. etc. What I found was this 'new' ranger/sab hybrid spec - which is really more a ranger/assassin spec honestly. I am very new to Sab and was hoping for some help with playing this spec.
So i have found plenty going over this spec on the internet - but they talk to you like you've been playing Sab for years...
If someone can go over the rotation here - very literally - I would greatly appriciate it. The part I am finally getting now is with the charges. Basically when I have 5 combo points BUT not 5 charges - i hit Head Shot, but if I have 5 charges regardless of combo points I hit detonate. <- I think, please tell me if I'm wrong.
If I am correct there the part i really need help with is the fillers - what is really my builder, when do i throw a shadow fire/splinter shot on, are there any other tiny nuances I should be made aware of.
Finally there is gearing this spec - I understand the Sab crystal is very important .. OK will get that. But, I also read this spec is much better when stacking Crit Power - is my current Attack power gear that horrible for this spec?
I appriciate your replies and advice - 5 months in Rift and still loving it. Free SL with a cheap year sub? PLEASE TAKE MY MONEIES!
