DPS / BosSligh's Pistol -vs- AR Main for DPS

Hello DBD community,

BosSligh here to bring a little insight as to which weapon you should main. Now as a disclaimer, I am not saying that AR is better than Pistol, or vice versa, but what I am saying, is from my research and numbers, this is what I have come up with.¬

Now with this test, all gear was even. I am Item Level(IL) 121¬ and both the AR, and the Pistol are both Epic lvl 12's 3pip with superior¬ crit glyphs lvl 9. So as you can see, both of them are exactly even to get the best and most accurate numbers possible. (side note: your numbers will be higher or lower depending on your IL)¬ And now for the test...

Everyone that I have talked to about the AR has stated to use High Explosive Grenade(HEG) as an elite, because DPS wise, it produces higher numbers, but this is not the case. If you ¬ are using the Advanced Combat Tracker(ACT) addon, the numbers are going to "appear" higher, because there is no way to differentiate which dps is going where. I.E, there is no way to see your DPS on the boss, or his adds. All DPS is compiled into one number, thus showing a higher number. Here are the results of the test on a target dummy in Aggartha. Each of these tests are done in an exactly 1 minute rotation...

Pistol (main hand)+ AR (Off Hand)

Test 1: HEG(Elite)
Build: Incendiary Grenade(IG)+Flourish+HEG+Burst Fire+Seeking Bullet+Dual Shot
Passives: Stability+Auto Loader+Fatal Shot+Heavy Caliber Rounds(HCR)+ Double Down
Results: 75, 605 DPS (1 min rotation)

Test 2: Red Mist(Elite)
Build: IG+Flourish+Red Mist+Burst Fire+Hair Trigger+Dual Shot
Passives: Stability+Unerring Accuracy+Fatal Shot+HCR+Double Down
Results: 81,826 DPS (1 min rotation)

AR (main hand)+Pistol (off hand)

Test 1: HEG(elite)
Build: Lock & Load+IG+HEG+Dual Shot+Placed Shot+Burst Fire
Passives: Stability+Auto Loader+Slow Burn+HCR+Fatal Shot
Results: 101,543 DPS (1 min roatation)

Test 2: Red Mist
Build: Lock & Load+IG+Red Mist+Dual Shot+Placed Shot+Burst Fire
Passives: Stability+Unerring Accuracy+Fatal Shot+HCR+Double Down
Results: 141,784 DPS (1 min rotation)

So from these tests, it can be deducted that the AR is in fact stronger than the Pistol. These numbers were tested in perfect comparison without being bias to either side. Both had 1 min rotations, both were evenly matched in regards to their level, rarity, and glyphs, so there were no advantages to either side.¬
When choosing which weapon to pick, one must consider the fight that lies ahead. If you're about to fight a boss, that produces no adds, it is¬ safer to go with the Test 2: Red Mist combo, because your dps output will be higher. if the boss does produce adds, then it is safer to go with the Test 1: HEG, because your Area of Effects (AOEs) will hit everyone, which will ultimately give you a higher dps number, and help the team out by doing dmg to everything in the area.¬
Disclaimer: Everything in this game is about preference and gear. The pistol can be strong, but my belief is "do¬ not leave anything up to chance." When you are¬ using the pistol, you must wait or¬ get "lucky" to proc your chambers to the same color. This can be a hindrance on DPS because there are going to be times where you pop 3-5 skills, and not see a single matching happens...but i noticed a huge spike in damage(dmg) when the chambers did proc the same colors. So all in all, both weapons can be effective, but everything is situational awareness, and what can potentially happen in a boss fight. The boss may do an AOE in the direction of the AR main user, and not the Pistol main user, thus the AR user has to stop DPS'ing, roll out the way, or move to a safe spot, and then start attacking again, while the Pistol main user is still attacking, thus by the end of the fight, producing a higher dps number than the happens, but in a world where both are attacking the same boss, un-interrupted, i do believe from my tests that the AR should be able to come out on top.¬
Thank you for reading

Solo / Pistol / Assault Rifle
« on: October 03, 2017, 05:43:26 AM »

This is the Build that I currently use for Both Solo Play and often times as DPS. Nothing really fancy.

I use pistols main for kiting. For me when I am kiting with AR main I get a little crazy because of the range and pull a lot of things I do not want to pull so the shorter range of the pistol works best for me.

I use an AR that pre-cooks the nades and there is a setting for ground targeting that I use as well so instead of clicking circle on ground for nade I just aim at target and hit button and it auto targets ground under what I am aiming at.

Vital shot does a great job healing and since I am using Pistols as main and Spam one or two shots of Vital Shot gets me where I need to be followed up by a nade.

I run all damage gear with hit on weapons and Crit and Crit chance on Talisman. I suppose the object is to burn everything down before it gets a chance to hurt you. The higher your gear score the more ridiculous this build wrecks face!

I was able to hop on and raise the level of the Guild City from 2 to 3 over a period of three days. I was then able to explore our last remaining zone over the course of another 3 days. I cleared the last area and it is ready to start construction as soon as the Tavern is increased to Level 3. All we are waiting for now is materials!  :)

Software / Tap Talk
« on: September 23, 2017, 12:34:50 AM »
I have not installed Taptalk in this site as it comes with a Default mobile version as well as a Mobile theme. To use the Default mobile version go to the bottom of the Default theme click the Red SMF and select WAP2
For other thees I believe WAP2 is linked at the bottom. Not all themes have this but the core does for sure.

*Edited  - Taptalk is now installed.

General Discussion / 'Teamspeak 3 Non-Profit Licence
« on: September 22, 2017, 08:58:12 PM »
Since we are now hosting our own Teamspeak 3 I had applied for a non-profit licence which we were awarded!  :)
So now were are able to run up to two servers off of the same IP with a combined limit of 512 users.  :o
The nice part about that is that if we decide to host any game servers we can provide Community Teamspeak 3 Servers if we wish!
