Currently I am going with Shiv as my primary attack for end-game.
I am curious, I've been hearing that Shiv is not as good for end-game as previously thought.
I've been browsing and haven't seen any comments on this, was wondering if anyone could lay down some facts for me.
To me, it seems viable, while most times Shiv is going to do less damage than SS, it costs less energy and with combat potency gives the rogue a way to regen extra energy, which ultimately nets more combo points and more shiv attacks.
The only downside to Shiv I can really see is the unreliability on cycles. Given that since the energy regain is going to vary between having endless energy to never procing, most of the time I'm spanning shiv, watching my SnD and whenever it runs out, refreshing and more spam Shiving.
Again, I've been browsing the EJ forums and haven't found anything to address this. If there is another thread on EJ or another forum a link would be appreciated. Thank you
