What did ellipses ever do to you to deserve this sort of treatment?
Ive got a number of replies:
Chalon..GREAT post man, I think ideally a great rogue will have a setup not basing off of a "main spec" anymore...but one that uses both Combat and Mutilate back and forth between bosses and even trash if you know you can gain considerably more situationally...
To Jeppathum's comment about the tier 8 2 set bonus. It does IN FACT apply deadly on multiple mobs...the problem though is....like on Auyiana and the guardian swarm adds. The speed in which you kill them is so fast you may only get 1 tick off of deadly poison...where as if you do Instant/Instant your dps will jump considerably. A great example to use deadly poison on your Fan of Knives set is on Freya and the Demolishing Lashers...when everyone is grouped in the middle to aoe down the first half of their lives. You can get some SERIOUS energy back...its devastating.
Also a point to make in Fan of Kniving as Combat...you want to weapon swap to the HEAVIEST SLOWEST weps you have in BOTH hands for that period of time. Because FoK is not effected by speed (autoattack is but thats minor) your weapon damage from Fan of Knives is MASSIVE.
Mitra your deadly poison should not "drop" off too much providing you have a fast offhand. Use Webbed death or a 1.4-1.6 wep and keep snd up. Considering shiv doesn't crit anymore or it's poison, you want to stay away from it and keep with a SS.
Kryptyx the link you posted...im not sure about either....According to that I should be ranked nd for Iron Council in overall dps o.0 in the world....Is that updated recently? Another point to make is combat may be on top of 2/3rds of them but the fact remains assassination is still right near them on many of the fights.
1. I use outfitter to swap out dagger everytime I FOK (im mutilate) to 2x SR's If i have beserking on all 4 daggers I use regularly (2x webbed death and 2x sinister's revenges) given the fact that when you weapon swap it kills the beserking proc would it be more beneficial to put mongoose on my other fan of kniving dagger? So I can (almost immediately) get a mongoose proc right as I start to FoK. Or does it not matter....will I still get another beserking proc due to the fact that it's another dagger....?
2. When you are AOE'ing with a fan of knive's set of daggers would it be more beneficial to have deadly on your main hand? or off hand? or hell even both hands maybe? Again this is providing the adds will be up for a descent amount of time. Is there anyone that could chat with me on the calculations involved here to decide WHEN 2x instant poison or dp/ip would be more beneficial. Obviously for 1 -3 seconds deadly would NOT be more beneficial but at what point would it be a considerably higher gain to use deadly poison on your daggers.
Sorry for writing alot hope this helps/ thanks in advance for the response.
