    Yeah I'd much rather be 75% sin and 25% Dirge.

    After beta testing the new raid zone, all I can say about Thugs and DU 2.0 is: Damn. Pretty sick~

    I may rename my right side mirror spec from "aids" to "aoe" now, and actually use it in some zones after the update.

    Man I'm going to be going full time right side once this hits---Thug's poison can't Double Up but Dust can. Strongarm and Shred are cool but do they ever do THAT much on your overall parse? Poison is your killer on that side, and it is getting nerfed by proxy in this update since it can't Double.

    Actually Shred and Strongarm do quite well on single-target fights, which is that tree's forte as well as ours. I'll be sticking with left side primarily but I'll be putting right side in a mirror spec for certain fights.

    Shred and Strongarm are great, but overall they don't really do that much. Both are <2% of anyone's parse (looking at my parses and the Parse Thread). Now when you can Double Up Strongarm it'll be twice as good, but Shred isn't going to be easy to fit in a Double Up rotation (except for long single target fights with no adds). I mean I'm going to use Double Up the same as always but in reverse order...Shred is usually not hitting it's 5th increment until after you get down to Bum Rush and your two Dots---after 7ish back attacks.

    Dust does more damage than Shred and Strongarm combined, even on single targets. The reset on Strongarm is FAR from a given, it's 1 in 5. I mean I'm not going to argue with you over it because I think both sides are viable (and tbh left is fun w. the reset chance and the Poison stacks) but dismissing the right side as situational is a mistake mate.

    I planned on giving it another test week when the GU went live.

    I, too, think right side is going to be situational.
