SS build: http://ws-base.com/b...220.127.116.119
Let me start off by saying I left 3 slots blank because you can choose any 3 utility abilities to put in there ( I would recommend arcane shock gate and possibly flash freeze)
Reasons I chose my abilities
t8 Quickdraw; very obvious reason it gives you empower buff
t5 Rapidfire: This is your best damage ability and will be your top damage done
t8 Trueshot: the 4th charge is amazing and total combined hits are very high for damage
Flameburst: good ogcd ability can be used in between all abilities
Assassinate: nice damage has 2 charges and can be used on cd becomes stronger when enemies are below 30%
Abilities you spell surge only:
t5 rapid fire: highest damage, a lot of crits, all 4 charges last as long as empower buff from t8 quickdraw which is perfect
t8 trueshot: get all 4 of your shots out extremely fast for high damage. can be used right after dodge rolling as well incase you are forced to move.
Rotation starting out is always the same I quickdraw use both charges of assassinate and flameburst ( if i got a crit in between). From there it becomes a priority system using flameburst whenever it is up and assassinate off cooldown as well:
A rotation would look like this if parsing: quick draw>as>as>(flameburst)>quickdraw>SS on: rapidfire (all 4 charges)>SS off>quickdraw>as>(flameburst)> SS on: trueshot (all 4 charges)> SS off> quick draw> SS on: rapid fire (all 4 charges)> SS off>quickdraw> as>(flameburst)> qd>qd>qd (until rapid fire comes up) then continue to always spell surge rapid fire and trueshot:
Note; I literally have spell surge up every single rapid fire and every single true shot. the only time most would not is if you messed up and spellsurged assassinate or quickdraw. Also after you use true shot note that because of the CD length of it, you will always be doing 2 spell surged rapid fires before another true shot
My gear includes 1907 Ap, 19.50% crit 175%crit severity and 8% striketrhough: With these stats i am able to parse between 5800-6200 dps on the middle dummy in illium/housing dummies. I do use a lacerate weapon so (5100-5500 without lacerate)
I would also like to note that I am in blues and some greens and I do not have any rune sets on this character.
Other parses i have done included t8 charged shot which tends to be about 300-400dps lower than my current build. Also would like to notes that in no way is ignite a dps increase. i showed at least 3 other people in game who was using the standard charged shot/ignite build in game and when switching to my rotation they literally gained over 700dps.. and with a laceration weapon that would increase much more.
Also people may say this build has little to no movement dps abilities, which is a correct statement, but I can assure you every fight in this game whether it is a vet dungeon a raid or an adventure you can stop and dps and this build works. Espers have proven that ( non mobile telekinetic strike) especially the ones in my raid, and I can assure you I personally have no issues in any dungeons running this build and being able to keep everything up and stop and use my abilities.
