Is MY Destroyer's DPS REALLY That bad??!!

Recommended Posts

Hi, i could use some guidance from any veteran destroyers


First off, I do know and accept that currently, the Destroyer is the 'joke' class when it comes to dps- it will always/ likely be out paced when beating down a boss when not using end game gear or so I heard. This never bothered me before but other players have recently noted that my damage output it is rather lacking for my gear/level, thus I'm now some what concerned with my Destroyer's performance.

If I land the 1st hit, then my combat meter can peak at somewhere from 1.2 to 1.35 million. Once another player follows up with their atk, my dps starts to plummet.

If I'm the second player to attack,  then my combat meter will peak anywhere from 600 to 900k then fall quickly to hold around 300k but usually I get an overall score of about 260k- even less if the boss get mobile or has mech animations (Numok, Amara, MSP)

My ping is average,about the 200 mark, 190 (lowest)  but can spike to215-247 during weekly raids/ msp when everyone atks at the same time.

My standard rotation is: Blitz/Ram>Emberstomp>Fury>spam ani cancel (judgement+cleave)> Smash (after 6-7 secs)


My DES is lvl 19  Earth Destroyer with an Aransu axe 9, awake Skybrk ring+E.ring, max Darkstorm Neck, Starbrk bracelet, King's glove, and an 8 piece Ruthless (Hive Queen) SS


So my question is, is my damage output really that bad? and if it is, what am I doing wrong??

Hello! Well, earth destroyer is one of the most gear dependeant class. Just dont stop to play because the dps numbers, they ll rize up with the itens, just the scale (compared with others classes)is different. Take my destro by example, and just farm the itens (she has some old itens, like gloves, belt, neck and bracelet... just try to get the new ones to dont wast aterials) MY DESTRO. She isnt a monster like Praetor for example, but she hit well. I have 160 of ping, and my last parse is 1.750m. Enjoy the class, cath up some friends and ignore de numbers. =)
