Hey man. I couldn't see it in the Vid but do you wait for teh Execute Proc and then pop Gore and follow up with a Force Scream? That's what I used to do as a Carnage Marauder and I did quite well.
A man that hides isn't a coward, he is the smartest man alive.
A man that fights is not brave, he is foolish
A man that walks away is the strongest of them all

cool. That does a ******** of DMG in two short abilities and speaks to the strength of the Carnage Marauder. Now do you play around with Mods or do you just use the generic ones?

Personally I tried to emphesise Crit Chance and Surge, now for FS I know you don't need the Crit Chance, since it's an auto crit, but for all the other in the tree I like having the Crit Chance. But lately I questioned the use of Surge and thought about switching to Power what do you think? I took a brake from Carnage because of this reason, with my current gear build (this applies to the regular mods in the WH gear) the dmg just wasn't there. So I switched to Anni where my Mods do wonders.

i had the exact same debate, atm i have 30% crit buffed and around 850 power and surge at 75%, ive been stacking power mods whenever i can find them , i reccomend getting 2 war hero vindicator light sabres, it has some good mods and enchantments with power in it , you can later trade these in for the elite war hero version(for your off hand just pull the mods out and put it in a custom built offhand) , and then you now have upgraded sabres and some extra mods and enchantments to play around with, also some BM pieces , i cant remeber, which exactly have some nice power mods as well +37 power ones, you can use that as well.

Dude I gotta say: You're the best Carnage Marauder I've ever seen.


And which Set Bonus do you favor as the best? I feel like the 4 pc Vindi Set bonus far outplays the Weaponmaster one. The 10 precent dmg bonus gives your ravage even better damage.
