Not actually reading my post, crap
Madness damage exceeds deception.. not comparing burst damage
compares sustained dps spec to burst dps spec
doesnt compare burst dps at all
gets full tier gear
doesn't itemize it worth ****
voltaic slash has nothing to do with it since any competent team will recognize surging charge anyways.
your heavy reliance on getting two VS off in quick succession is easy to take advantage of and the fact that it is a weapon damage attack screws you over against a ton of defensive cds that death field can bypass. also full deception is much more force starved
Only if you're implying our main source of damage is VS, which it isn't. The procs still happen even if it misses. The only thing we *may* miss out on is a possible x2 Static Charges. Of course the burst spec is force starved, it isn't meant to sustain dps with. If you actually use blackout, though, you can sustain a heavy rotation for long enough to kill 2-3 people.
