Hey Icy Veins,

I created an account to ask this question because it's something I've been toying with the past few nights. I'll preface and say that I'm no hardcore raider, but do want to get into heroics eventually. I'm currently playing Outlaw, and wish to continue so, however notice that no matter what I do with RtB (knowing the proper reroll rules), my DPS is garbage. I'm only 850 currently, so can't rely on specific pieces of endgame gear to improve this. It's just too sporadic, unpredictable. I also tend to PvP a lot, so the inconsistency is not helpful.

So I tried Slice and Dice the other night and was actually very pleasantly surprised. Not only did I see an overall DPS *increase* on several minutes of rotation target dummies, but I found it played out much nicer too. I could spam things. I was getting Saber Slash procs more from spamming. More CP's = more fun, and apparently also more damage. So I started playing around a lot with my Talents.

I'm wondering if anyone else is running Slice and Dice currently, and what talents they've chosen? I've currently tested that Vigor + Alacrity + Swordmaster gives me the most consistently high DPS in a mostly stationary fight. Deeper Stratagem was a close second, but it didn't change my DPS that much, more just how the spec felt. Harder hitting, less frequently.

SnD will give you a dps increase if you aren't using RtB correctly, so you aren't doing anything wrong by swapping.

That said, I don't know what you're doing for RtB, cause you don't have logs. If you'd like me to look at them I can see what I see
