They're hardly helping your team much with 600 expertise as they're such a liability requiring constant protection; also they're missing out on approximately 12% bonus damage by not going up to 1200 expertise.

As of now power is still king. Well, as of patch 1.5, I haven't played 1.6 yet to see if there were any adjustments made behind the scenes.

And Sorcs usually need constant protection

Smuggler / Agent

Operative / Scoundrel
-Hidden Strike / Shoot First 5k Capable (higher with Acid Blade / Flechette Round)
-Backstab / Backblast 5k Capable
-Underworld Medicine / Kolto Injection 5k Capable
-Kolto Pack/Kolto Infusion 5k Capable
-Hidden Strike/Shoot First - almost never hits for 5k against anyone with respectable gear
-Backstab/Back Blast - only hits for 5k on people with bad PVE gear...
-Kolto Pack/Kolto Infusion - if you seriously use this in your rotation as a healer, I'm going to come through this computer and slap you

I should preface this with the fact that I'm in fully auged WH with 5 EWH pieces and I stack power/cunning and set bonus crit, so my hits are even bigger than normal scoundrels

I have many others that say they are capable. Personally I hit 5k with HS quite often. Especially pairing the acid blade damage. If well geared (as you are) HS direct damage only needs to be around 4200 to hit 5k w/acid blade from time to time. I've only hit 5k with backstab once, but pairing with acid blade I hit it often enough.

As for Kolto Pack, it doesn't matter if it's used or not, it hits 5k, which is the point of this thread.

My apologies, I assumed that we were talking about hitting an actually geared player rather than someone running around naked. Shoot First with Flechette Round will normally crit for 4.7-4.8k on a well geared sorc, but unless my 79.8% crit multiplier and my 970 bonus damage with1200 expertise is bugged, it won't hit for 5k against a respectably geared player.

We all know what assumptions are....

As I've said a number of times in this thread. The post is not about fully geared EWH (not the best) attacking BiS (the best) of vice versa. It's meant to show the big attacks of each AC, nothing more.
