So I decided to get MOX parser to see what my numbers are... and boy was it eye opening.

I tried all 3 specs just for comparison. My DPS ended up being the same for PvP and PvE dummies with my PvP and PvE set respectively. Everything was done with just the knight buff.


Watchman spec reigns supreme:

1470 - 1500 dps

41% of the dps came from burning effects.


Combat spec is great BUT for long term fights it just doesn't compare with armor penetration you get from your burning effects. BW really needs to add some kind of passive armor penetration mechanic because it literally is the only thing that's keeping sentinels from doing the same dps as watchman spec:

1350-1370 dps

32% of the dps came from blade rush.


Focus spec, although fun to use in PvP for retarded aoe crits with force sweep is NOT in ANY WAY viable for raids. I still think that guardians are better suited for this spec, even after the changes made to sentinel trees:

1050-1100 dps

28% of the dps came from force sweep... go figure.  :P


My conclusion is this: If you want balls to the wall dps - go watchman, if you want some group utility with roots, speed/defense buffs at a loss of some dps - go combat, if you care not for 1v1 performance and don't raid - go force.

Did you use any stims or adrenals for the fight?  And how long did you attack for?

Adrenal, sentinel buffs... pretty much whatever is at my disposal without help from other classes. Attacked for around 5 minutes to get a good measure of dps. So we should be able to push to 1600+ dps in raid with arpen from other classes, full buffs, etc as sentinels.

Gonna test my numbers with vengeance spec juggy just to see if guardian dps is/was really viable in raids.

I get about 1350 without any biochem stuff, IE no adrenals or stims.   I really need to make some money and buy the exotech shit.

Yeah its official ... i hate my toon even  more now.  I have to mash every button to the point that it rips out the back of my keyboard in order to hit 1k.  The kicker in the shitter is the fact that if the fight is 3-4-5 min my dps drops down to about 800 or so.  They kick grav round in the teeth for PVP and that was smart but they also nuetered the class that I have to use big attacks that use lots of power.  If I dont use the big attacks my dps is just shit.  Very frustrating.......

After spending damn near 1 mill I was finally able to get my dps up a bit to a maintained 950-1k.  Thats about a 100-200 dps difference.  This would be so much easier if someone made augments. 

If any slicer ever gets an Overkill Schematic I will pay a good amount for it.  Thats the only augment worth anything IMO.

So I changed to assault spec last night after hitting a testing dummy for a damn near 2 hours and warzones in between.  I was really pleased with the results last night.  During some fights I was able to get around 1200 dps which was a great change from the 8-900 from the night before.

Downloaded ACT (love it) and tried to compare my Venageance PvE specced Juggernaut dps to my standard Watchman specced Sentinel. Both were done in PvE Rakata gear on an Operations Dummy for about 6 minutes:

Sentinel 1461 dps w/ ~540k dmg done
Juggernaut 1130 dps w/ ~420k dmg done

6 minutes in my Juggy was 120,000 total damage behind.

Conclusion: Don't bring dps specced Guardians to progression raids... ever.
