I'm just back in the game and always played Annihilation. But it seems the spec is no more appreciate... I tied Carnage for a change but I do not manage do properly manage the procs. Is there any change you make in the interface to see the more easily? Personaly, with so small indications for buffs/debuffs/procs, I have the bad impression of playing ramdomly pushing buttons lol

Individually they'll have to wait 6 seconds between each dispel, by then rupture will have procced already. They can go ahead and laugh from the respawn room, because they'll be spending most of their time there.

Looking at your screenshot your issue with it not being "bursty" seems to be gear. Or skill, but I haven't seen you play so ill assume its gear for now. I'm assuming (and hoping) that that was at least an annihilate you for that 6800 on. Thing is, pre 2.0 I was averaging 63-6400 on my annihilate/merciless slash. 2.0 I'm hitting around 8-9k. Considering the extra stack of annihilator, that's not bad given that its near spammable at this stage when your maxed on stacks. You claim to be struggling to get a kill, then either its your skill level, or your gear. The spec certainly does not suck and is still arguably one of the best when played right. (Something most anni users can't seem to do which gives off the impression that its a bad spec). So rather than claiming the spec sucks, be honest and just admit that you're not good at it. It gets old when people whine about classes/specs blaming their troubles on it, and then time and time again others show those claims to be completely false.

That being said, their burst is also the easiest to counter in the game. People like to argue how they can cleanse annihilation dots. I can constantly proc those with spammables. So if you cleanse, i'll put more on you and you have 6 seconds before you can get another cleanse meanwhile I'm spamming annihilate and vicious slash to proc more dots, with deadly saber thrown into the mix.
So, PoliteAssasin, is Annihilation/Watchman a good 1v1 spec? Can you kill a healer if you get him away from his tank/peels/crossheals?

1v1 is my favorite thing. I just started a Combat Sentinel and I like how I can kill healers in lowbie PvP. But if Combat/Carnage is as easy to lock out as you say it is, I'd rather learn a spec that isn't quite as easy to shut down. I really don't care for Focus/Rage, but Watchman has me intrigued.

Would love to get your honest take on Watchman/Annihilation as a 1v1 spec (including playing against solo healers).

Ok. Well after reading all of these comments, the only resolution i can see here is one spec is not "better" than the other, it is all on how people play and what fits them the best. Of course each of the spec's has its own weakness, (Carnage is interrupts/stuns, Anni is the lack of burst) but they don't mean that one takes precedence over another. So if we can all understand that, then can we please stop is childish pissing-contest that is going on? Thanks
