Assuming 'Top level DH's' were also 'Top level mathematicians'.
Ok, some people on these forums argue about how this skill is more usefull because it allows them to use (wtv discipline skill) 24/7, or how that other skill is more usefull because it boosts their resists, and so on.
I don't have anything to argue against these guys. Yes, other skills are usefull.
But some people are actually trying to argue against Sharpshooter on a mathematic level ( i.e. "Sharpshooter is bad because at X% crit chance it doesn't increase my DPS a lot ) and it's !@#$ing obvious they can't add past 12+12.
I know some players optimally shouldn't use sharpshooter. If you destroy elite packs in 1 second, it's a waste to take sharpshooter, you should probably just take something to run faster because killing them in 0.5 second won't change anything anyway.
But I've seen tons of people who SHOULD use sharpshooter, but don't, because they don't know how good it is, or they just read 'pro' DH talk about how it was bad and thus assumed it was bad for everyone.
What I'd really like would be, for someone who use culling the weak/steady aim but not sharpshooter, to come forward and say 'I use CTW/SA but no SS because I counted the DPS increase and it was 'X%' - presumably less than CTW'.
But I'm afraid very very very few people actually spend their time counting anything at all. They just go to their class' forums and take whatever is the most frequently called OP build and roll with it.
I mean, do you assume every %^-*ing barb in the game is using the WW build because they figured it was good on their own? let's get real here.
So, if you're using CTW/SA and think SS is bad, I'd like you to tell us all how much more DPS you think SS would give you ( and if you get to <15%, please explain how you figured that out, it should be fun to read ).
