You are bragging about 13kdmg in Gcd's...snipers can do that in less than 2.
In less then 2. So thats in 1 GcD 13k dmg.
Dude just go away.

Ambush + explosive probe at end of cast. It's less than 3 seconds (ambush is 2.5 second cast + instant cast at the end...so it's a total time of 2.5 seconds) & with adrenal + trinket if they both crit together can do over 13k.

At least that's what I'm told by snipers (without combat log, I have no way of knowing if they are telling the truth).

If I remember right, I think ambush + takedown is supposed to be even more damage if the target is <30%

Different spec maybe? There are three specs, from what I understand one spec is sustained, one spec is aoe, one spec is burst.

You know that using your trinkets and using your adrenals = more time cause of the cool down? which means 1 sec for trink and 1 sec for adrenal means 4.5 second cast total.

not to mention you have to be lucky as hell for both moves to crit. What you're referring to if pretty unrealistic considering it's based alot on luck lol I mean maybe it could happen but chances are slim and you have to use adrenal and trinket.

A Sorc can set up some up front burst by Hardcasted Chain Lightning->Death Field. If both crit it's a nice amount of damage. Need to do Death Field before Crushing Darkness any way.

I will lean and say our Merc does pull it about 60% of the time. I've never seen our Sniper (22/16/3) pull second aggro.
Yes, the mercs do crit for 5-6k every shot. I believe you are right though that was heat seekers, and i checked and double checked last night when we ran EV again. Yup, same exact order. Noone pulls aggro off the tanks, but the one dps who is 2nd on the aggro list always gets blasted by that first boss every 30 seconds or so.

What the hell is a trinket?

The RELIC and adrenal don't proc the gcd, so you can literally run your fingers across f1-f2-f3-f4 like i do, which takes less than a second, and then cast cain lightning/deathfield. Or thundering blast/chain lightning, or thundering blast / shock, or crushing darkness/affliction. RELICS and Adrenals do not use the gcd.

so mercs crit for 5-6k every shot but its with HSM (which has a 15 sec cd)? so mercs are only using HSM now?

Or you can use a gaming keyboard, and create a macro key that uses relic + adrenal + an ability all within .1 seconds
