There is a Assault Hybrid one, but I haven't seen any pure Assault ones since apparently taking AP does not help dps. (I may be wrong though, I'm not that up to date with Assault spec.)

As a side note, has anyone tried parsing to see whether the proc crit relic is any good? i.e. is the ~7.5% crit it gives better than the power from the SA?
Why not use both?
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

That's what I was trying out, a PvP proc power+ proc crit. I'm back to DG SA+PvP SA now, it "feels" I wasn't doing as much damage with the proc crit relic but without parses, and I don't really have time to run those, I can't be sure.

Also, 4/5 HM DF and 3/5 HM DP now, 7 bosses in 3.5 hours isn't that bad. As a side note, I was running the Assault hybrid for the 2nd boss of DP.

4/5 in both HM DF and DP now, stuff is buggy as sh*t. Midterms coming up so may not be doing the guides any time soon.
But here's some random stuff about the bosses.

DF
4th: Easy stuff.

DP
1st: Lot's of adds, have good raid awareness helps a lot, get out of puddles.
2nd: Used hybrid with GR, hectic fight with a decent amount of movement, I'll see if I can try Gunnery next time.
3rd: Bugged out and didn't change phases, since they fixed it we'll have to do it legit this week.
4th: The definition of a buggy fight. Btw BW, boss randomly dropping aggro and turning to AoE raid is not cool.

tl;dr: have good raid awareness, get out of puddles, don't bring stuff into the raid, and BW needs to do better bug checking on their stuff.

I cannot edit the title of my guide, it has a full assault section if you were wondering. Full Assault is totally viable I just don't use it.

9/10 bosses in 2.5 hours last night, with a tank who hasn't done any of it before and a DPS with 69/72s and no set piece, we really need to get our group down properly.
I'll be updating the guide this weekend after my midterm tomorrow.

Finished the guide for HM DF minus 2nd boss.

Has anyone tried using gunnery for the 2nd boss in DP? I've been using hybrid and I'm wondering how gunnery does for that fight.

I suppose saying I've done it on SM isn't very helpful, is it?

I did gunnery our first couple of weeks in there. I honestly found it more or less the same as Assault (for damage anyway). The fight is, for the most part, one big extended trash pull with a boss that sometimes drops down to say hi. Both specs have the on demand burst to get the boss back the hell up when he drops the first few times, and drop a guardian of the fortress when they spawn, so it's more or less a matter of preference. I've done both specs in that fight now and didn't notice a significant difference really between the two as far as bottom line. Honestly, probably the best spec in there is Focus Sentinel if you're just looking for pure DPS numbers (or sabo slinger) but the dangerous parts in that fight are when you want a good chunk of single target damage in a short amount of time, and both specs can play that game pretty well.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

That's the 2nd one in DF not DP.

Edit: In other news, we're now 5/5 HM DP and I'm rocking a brand new 78 mainhand .
