1. As it has been said repeatedly in forum, swashy's single target dps is terrible. It is not changed until today. Because swashy is AE oriented class so it is not necessary that its single target DPS is uber. But it does not mean same level with fighters or support classes is enough.<br />My suggestion is to introduce new mechanic like negative void + void retribution of warlock. Swashy needs boost to work better as dps class in single target fight. New xpac is good opportunity to take a balance.<br /> <br />2. Please add fervor overcap component to marauder's vaunt. There seems to be more fervor-capped chance in CD than PoP.<br /> <br />3. Please a bit empower AA granted abilities. Though it is not unique to swashy, due to the improvement of profession ability in PoP, AA abilities are relatively outdated.For example, Dance of metal, Enfeebling Whirl, Dragonwrath, etc..

If you want single target dps in a rogue go brigand

We need to get rid of the T2 dps thing, like the summoners once had from the caster side of DPS. There are only 2 classes held back by this and its swash and brig, (mostly swash). I'm sorry but even with ascensions, we still can't compete in a raid / group setting and its not fair after all this time.

You can buff a brigand to the nines right now and they will beat subpar tier 1.<br /> <br />If anything conj's shouldn't be the top parser /shrug.

Yes, brigs are a bit better off, Swash has been the bottom of the barrel for years, give us a break already

Revanu 11-08-2018 05:15 PM

Yep because raidwide fervor, grp adc temps and grp reset is lousy.... <br /><br />Not to mention they can throw down with the best on ae

Through the last couple of years there's been a couple of whine threads about swashies singletarget dps. I agree that it's not the best and it shouldn't be. They are among the best on aoe fights and they contribute with some great grp and raid buffs. Stop whining and start playing the class as it was meant to be played. If it doesn't suit you pick another class.
