You need to do some rateds with us tonight! I'll play carnage so you can smash . But seriously before the buff Strenx (a rage jugg) was already consistently hitting 950-1000 dps in rateds so I'm afraid of what Bioware has unleased upon the world .

What build are you guys using.

I'm having a BALL on my mara right now with rage, but my build is pretty slapdash.

Huh? There's only room for like a two point variation in builds. Ergo you can't really slapdash it. I guess you could forego crush for deadly saber and a slow on cauterize since berserk supports most of your rage/shockwave needs on its own. They also get the 30% crit (bleeds = force damage) bonus if I'm not mistaken so it could be worthwhile.

Rage is for those that can not figure out how to be effective with Carnage.

Wrong, I could pretty much write a book on how to play Carnage and I've come pretty close with the threads I've posted in this forum. The damage output of Rage is twice as powerful as Carnage. I'm getting those 5k+ crits at the same rate if not faster, except now I'm getting it on 2-5 people. You're gimping your team playing anything but.

7k smash on 3 people. 21k damage.

Mega, what happend to "but carnage supports team play, and the roots from ravage/deadly are awesome when it comes to tunneling healers/pealing of yours?" Carnage still wins when it comes to that.

Rage is great fun, and sick dmg, i agree its output is way more then carnage and at a faster rate, i spanked a 19k healer yesterday with smash and vicous for 12k dmg in 2 secs. but i also noticed the good old "smash not applying" misses when knocked back, and i didnt see much difference in the smash dmg beeing applied, they said that they improved this?

question is, what is easier to counter, rage mara og carnage mara, with full resolve you can still be kited even with to "jumps" to target, with carnage you can at least root with deadly and play catch up !

Rage needed a "filler" buff, wich it got, you didnt have much between your smashes earlier, and the smashes are waay to predictable, and good player can dogde most of these. in rateds your gonna get knocked back, and pull out of mosh pits as a rage mara all the time.

with carnage you can buff up your 10% dmg with force and gore -> massacre, and even if you do get knocked back you can still force scream in mid air while flying backwards.

i don't know, felt like commenting, all threes specs are now very viable for pvp if you ask me, i run with anni and put out some really decent numbers, not beeing aoe specced !

It's worth noting that switching to shicho in a carnage spec then using berserk and switching back is very useful.

Back to playing Carnage again. Been doing RWZ's. I'll miss being top damage but it's impossible with our Rage juggs with me as Carnage. Predation/roots is just too good.

I have to say, while I haven't gotten comfortable with the change to beserk, I think they over did the buff to rage. After rerolling on pot5 and hitting 50, I was able to get over 300k damage in full recruit gear and rarely drop below 250k. I can only image what a fully geared Marauder with a good healer could do. Well, probably the 955k that Mega screenshotted.
