    Default Warrior DPS Classes

    What classes are people looking into as far as "pure DPS" warrior builds?

    Personally I've been rolling with Champion (38) / Beastmaster (28) / Riftblade (0) and have been pretty impressed with the output while leveling, I just wonder if that will transfer into a raid setting when compared to melee rogues.

    Just out of curiosity, what class combinations are you other DPS-oriented warriors leaning towards?

    I was playing around in open beta with something like this Soul Tree Calculator: Void Knight (26) / Riftblade (19) / Warlord (10) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM

    A lot of crying on the main boards though about VK needing to get toned down, guess I'll see Thursday.

    VK wasn't toned down it was fixed. There were some glitches which would cause the VK to obtain pacts extremely fast and allow you to discharge every 1-2 seconds for 800-900 dmg. It was extremely overpowered and broken although fun to play with.

    Right now I would say Riftblade with Paragon is a good DPS build. Riftblade with VK is still good like it was in beta. Honestly though it just depends how you want to play. If you want a lot of fast low damage hits go with Paragon dual wield but if you want slower big hits go with Champion.

    I know some people had success even with Paladin or Reaver DPS builds if you skip the tanking abilities and go straight for the DPS ones. Really every class CAN DPS if you build it right.

    On last day of open Beta, I theorycrafted a pretty effective Riftblade/Paragon/Reaver build for soloing rifts that put out some pretty nice numbers both single target and AoE (with more survivability than it had any business having).

    Final build would be something like 12 Rift / 32 Para / 22 Reaver.

    Para handles ST damage, Reaver gets the AOE and survivability, Riftblade enhances both a bit.

    Obviously purely PVE, doesn't really have much burst to it at all.

    can you tell me what reaver talents you needed to heal trough mob damage so you dont have to rest all the time?

    I didnt have time to do it for warriors, i only tried rogue grind builds.

    Reaver tree would look like so:

    Soul Tree Calculator: Reaver (22) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM

    When AoEing, the combination of Plague Bringer and Soul Sickness returns a ridiculous amount of health, and on the chance you do get low, Master of the Abyss is a great "oh shit" heal. Plus, every time a mob dies, you're healing a nice chunk as well. Combined with spreading the other dots to mobs, then using another class's single target abilities, they'll go down alarmingly quickly.

    As far as I know the only pact bug was Quality Care giving you insta pacts if you had a pocket healer... The spec I listed didn't use QC as I didn't run around with a pocket healer but I was still able to spam Discharge regardless.

    The only real way they could tone down/fix Discharge is to give it a recast because even without QC bug I can get off 3 full 10 pact Discharges in the area of 10 seconds hitting for 1k+ upwards of 2k depending on crits.

    Kalandre, What did you set up for the Riftblade? I was messing around with points but wasnt sure what was best for the rest of the build.
    My paragon set up might be something like this.. Soul Tree Calculator: Paragon (32) / Reaver (0) / Riftblade (0) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM

    VK got nerfed, Discharge has a 10 sec CD now, which hurts a lot.

    Yes that was one of the bugs which was "fixed". Basically they just changed the recast of discharge because they didn't intend or expect people to be able to spam it with 10 pacts every 1-2 seconds as they were on beta. It was a loophole that has now been closed due to the 10 second recast timer. Now discharge is just a good extra damage ability as it should be instead of a crutch every DPS warrior was using.
