ive tried that on PTS and its just falling my dps to 3300 even 3200 most of the times , simply no enough skills executed to make enough dmg ,while a lot of energy on disposal.Adrenal probe is not used even once or maybe once at the beginning if you burst with explosive probe,precasted OS and Ambush.
as it looks to me Ambush crits will make the difference for top rating parse,moar RNG ,since normal hits 5000 vs crit hits of 10k is big difference.
Also Corrosive Dart change now gives exact time window for ambush to be used in filler spot even without clipping SoS and still not get a lesser variant of it,where on live that is not the case.

so using ambush in full lethality is not optimal is what you're saying?

i went full lethaltiy for df dp last night and well to be honest there really is not enough time to fit anything in that hole because of mechanics. When i do find i am able to turret 100% of the time, i use EP with TA and Adrenaline Probe ofcourse. Most of the time though in raids that hole is just lost due to lag and mechanics.

Shameless bump. Some updates
  1. 2.6 Sniper DPS Guide by B'oarder
  2. 2.6 Gunslinger DPS Guide by B'oarder
  3. Abridged Engineering
  4. Abridged Saboteur

specifically on the dot spec. Updated MM/SS but it is far from 'optimal' yet as we are still waiting on new top parses from the dps leaderboards.

Did 2.6 change anything on the lethality rotation, now that corrosive dart lasts 21s?
Or do you still clip your dots early to maximize your number of culls?

I would imagine you still use Cull on cooldown, so nothing has really changed.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

What Arch said. Nothing really changed for this spec in 2.6 as far as rotations.
