When i have cap of strenght, smuggler greatsword and ~100 melee power - i see maximum crits for 500-800 dmg (350-550 usually), and hits for 200-400 ofc. And i absolutely sure - you never can hit for 650 dmg with one-handed weapon. You can see 150-300 crits with best equipment, and these are the maximum values, usually you will see ~70-120. Well, that is not "help with damage" for dps classes. When you make 10-20% of their damage - its almost nothing.
I ran DPS S/B chosen for a long time before devs took away Discordant Winds (**shakes fist at dev team**). 350-400 ravage/cleave hits was the norm before crits.
You should listen to the guy. Can confirm everything he's saying, but I use a slightly different setup of gear for it. Also use a real end game weapon, not smugglers stuff, heh.
Sure, it looks like a truth, but this is not "help with damage" too) Again - if you make 10-20% of dps of typical damage dealer - its just nothing. Any player with healer at his back can just ignore any snb tank attacks him. And two snb tanks. And three. And two full dps geared 2h chosen. And three. In general, you can not make your chosen so that he represents at least some threat to someone. Except for stray lone hats or SW or BW, and then not always.
Then who are you attacking? Tanks? Your priority goals or your guarded DD are SW / BW / AM / SL / WH / WL / ENGI or bad positioning healers.
SnB chosen can deal high damage if it wants to, but it's not always worth it. That's why I recommend a balanced setup.
In the past when I had a more offensive build my personal record of 40 lev BW (sc nordenwatch, he and I were alone so no one had buffs and debuffs from others) I hit him with a Ravage 1149 dmg. Not bad for snb chosen. But my toughens was only 400.
I know, I know, of course you won't believe it
