How to RAGE!!!!!


Hello everyone, despite my forum name I normally go by Arc (Imp) or Hiímme (Pub) in game on The Ebon Hawk. I raid with Aisthesis Pub side doing NiM content.

As it stands right now, I have the best Marauder rage parses under my name on the world 1 mill ď2.9+ DPS leader boardĒ and the 1.5 mill The Ebon Hawk Leader board.

So why am I making this guide? After extensive frustration with both annihilation and carnage due to some crippling rng elements (I will not go into details here) I have taken up running rage a couple months ago for pretty much any sort of PVE content, even if it was a single target boss fight. Having parsed a fair bit in it I have discovered something startling: rage can reliably outparse carnage in a single target fight. This however is not in comparison to myself (I doubt I ever did a full carnage parse let alone a competitive one XD) but carnage/combat parses submitted by others on the dummy, hence slight gear differences.

Nope, Concealment operatives are crap. Should play a real DPS like a Madness Assassin :P
Or better yet, Pyro PT (Im looking at you 1.5 mill HP dummy's on the ebon hawk leaderboards!)

And who's guide was used for that 1.5 mill dummy parse that is best in the world? Not dulfy's, but rather one that was written on these forums. WHO KNEW!

Operative: Not in top 10 for these:

or These (world leaderboards):
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...rive_web#gid=9

It is second place here:
http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=714446

But still beaten by the more mobile Assault Vanguard, and it was done by a guy who wrote his own guide instead of using dulfy (though to be fair, Dulfy's Operative guide was written by a guy who mains a concealment operative and was Dulfy's GM, so he knows how to pull it off and wrote a guide for it).

Try harder.

Anyway, in the past, I remember people trying to get Dulfy to optimize her guides a little more. It was responded that "The guides were written so everyone can pick up a class, use those guides, and be HM Capable. NiM Capable requirements should come from other guides or from adapting yourself and picking it up. Probably better for the second option, as it means you are a more nightmare-capable player"

Glad the guide was of use to at least some people. It was the whole point after all :P

I did read the dulfy guide a long time ago on rage and honestly I dont think it is giving it the credit the spec deserves. A stone age old video parse, because nothing else was available as most peeple believe the spec is weak single target wise and that its all about carnage and annihilation. Im trying to show otherwise XD.

I am doing a fair number of things differently and believe ravage is a very big part of the tree (usually 2nd most dmg from it in a parse if not a very close third).

So much for that.

I probably should mention that that naturally this is not THE way to play Rage or that its THE best way to do so. I have gotten the best results with this methodology. I have shared a couple tricks and insights I have learnt on my own which I didnt see anywhere else.

Look at this as a more up to date guide for Rage.

As for you Meatpopsicle, I hope you enjoy dpsing on ur healer, must be fun :P Maybe you should write a guide for it so we can also get better at doing dmg on our healers.

Well if the guide is good it might actually end up on dulfy :P She's been contacting guide writers to write guides for classes.
