But bear in mind that to be a true DPS, you will need to pump your equip up, as with any MMO.
Why no crisis / counter howl? Because you don't need it in PVE.
Rising Slash is maxed for damage, since I use it frequently and it works well in synergy with Bone Crash.
Taunting lv10 is a must for SDN, and it performs outside of SDN as well to reduce damage taken for you to spam your DPS skills.
Whirlwind : Damage + 20%
Rolling Attack : Damage + 20%
Bone Crash: Duration + 20%
Iron Skin: Duration + 20%
Why the Bone Crash plate? because my bone crash is lvl 2 with the new skill ring, and its additional damage helps alot in parties.
The rest is self-explanatory.
