regarding whatever i need to get my 12/6/2 to cap with the full gear in the destiny of my choice to see how it holds up. the DPS feels stupidly better than the 18/1/1 and the 18/1/1 main advantage is fixed in the next patch (zillion hastes boost from both Tempest and Kensai, sure the 12/6/2 could do it but it no way in hell can afford the AP to do so).
Survivability is close, while reconstruct hits for more the 18/1/1 has more healing options. Pretty much the the only thing the 18/1/1 has going for it are trap skills? Okay, it has better bow damage because you can fit in sniper shot (another thing that the 12/6/2 cannot afford).
I'm looking forward to seeing how ranger 20s perform with the off-hand DS-fixed. Now if only they'd fix Character copy on Lamania so we could actually test stuff properly.
