I have 100% max gear minus like 8 str from not all +24 talis and I can tell you that at that level it can actually be a "decent DPS" but you need a lot of gear and a lot of RR to make it work. You also 10000000% need an armor debuff to deal and real damage, without one you are better playing a BG like you said.Anomanderake wrote:Sooo...
I’m returning in RoR after a 2 years stop. Since my old characters are deleted, i switch destro. In order i was running a DPS SM, but i remember the power of the DoK DPS, so i would like to try. I like hybrid frontline DPS so my choice was between DoK and black guard. Is the mdps DoK so useless right now? I didn’t understand the nature of the nerf.
But once you get your RR up, you get gear, and you get an armor debuff, you can do some fun stuff. Ignore you covenants though, put CoC on and sort of forget about it. If you can do that you'll enjoy it a lot more. Especially if you played on live when you could use CoC/CoV and they would compliment your faster AA speed.
Hope that helps. For starters just use the 3 piece set with ini and armor on it until you get better gear. Use the AP epic weapon as your offhand until you have a t4 sc wep and the dwarf t4 weapon. Finally you'll finish with either 2 subju weapons or 2 t4 SC weapons, both actually perform similarly, the subju's just have less wounds.
PS - take quick escape as soon as you have 10RR. You will not regret it, ever.
