IO is parsing unusually low

I've verified this with at least 4 other IO mercs. On dummies, IO is parsing on average about 300-400 less DPS than it did in December (after they had already nerfed the set bonuses). I was averaging about 10k on a dummy in late December, and now, with the same gear and rotation and everything, my average is down to 9600. The other mercs noticed a similar drop-off. Has anyone else noticed? Is there some sort of ninja nerf at play here?

I am always bad at dummy parsing with my AS Commando. Normally around 9.3-9.5k. But the last two resulted in something between 9-9.2k. I'll try some more and let you now.

Had 9.999 yesterday. So it feels like the same for me.
I only see huge differences in the first Izax Phase. It differs between 9-10k. Always the same use of abilities.

Hmm, i'm parsing 9.8k-10k on avg atm, didn't parse IO back then, so can't really comment on december parses, probably just a very unlikely coincidence. Even tho i don't really like what the devs are doing with classes and the game overall and which direction their taking, i doubt they'd nerf a class without letting the community know.

I didn't do any parsing in December so I can't compare it to then, but I haven't had issues recently with it seeming lower than normal. It's still possible to average 10k on a 2.5m dummy, depending on the rotation.

For Izax 1st phase, the main reason dps is lower is because you lose a GCD not being able to precast serrated shot. Since phase 1 is so short, that's going to come out to a loss of a couple hundred dps.

I figured out the problem: I was using the old marisi-fascinate rotation. I forgot I had switched rotations to allow for extra thermal detonators, which is more optimal in the wake of the new 5.0 passive. Back to averaging 10k again.
