    Are Darkrunners still viable?

    As the title says.... Been gone a couple years due to medical issues and I decided to get back in and farm a bit..... Mainly PvE... As of right now still farming for Hiram (the gods hate me) but I'm still rocking my 2 year old Celestial T4 Obsidian set with Dual Weild Shortspear/sword or my replacement nodachi the Hiram (heroic so far).... Any input or suggestions would be appreciated

    For PvE, absolutely! PvP, kind of in the same spot primeval's in. You're strong against mages, but come second in the dps department, to songcraft specs. In Darkrunner's case, third, with executioner being 2nd due to their immense amount of cc's (something dr KIND OF lacks now). One could say prime is tied for third, with shadehunter ( my spec ) with trickster being second, due to its high cc from witchcraft, which would actually put Dr in 4th, behind shadowblade...

    ......
    Just stack crit rate/dmg and play what you want. Hahahaha Most will tell you executioner or bladedance, cuz FOTM (tons of ez cc vs tons of ez burst dmg), but Dr is still viable. :>

    Thanks..... Bad enough I'm old just didn't want to feel the same way in game. Lol. Hopefully the RNG God's will play nice and I can get my hands on some good Hiram leather. Any advice on weapons? Again I'm so use to Nodachi's and sword/shortspear combos.

    You can still run sword and shortspear, since, as of recently discovered, your offhand autos count towards that weapon's bonus dmg to plate or leather respectively. Nordachi is fine for 2h, especially with the recent increase in range, when 2hing.

    As for rng, the way my friends and I have done it, is find a desired weapon with 2/3 stats, preferrably the two bonus stats, and not your main stat (agi/str/etc.) Because your main stats only has 4 other stats to compete with, while your bonus stats (crit rate/dmg/pen) have around 14.

    If you dont manage to get all 3 by divine, farm up another one and feed the old one to it (if the stats are better), rinse and repeat, until theyre perfect, BEFORE you awaken it. You can take your chances with awakening, if its only your main stat that needs to be replaced, since againx 1/5 chance itll be what you want. :> sorry for the mouth full. Hehe

    Details are the prize to life and knowledge. Without knowledge there would be no power. So I guess it was a good call to save some plate along with the leather that's been dropping still looking for my shortspear and sword but with no luck. A lot of greatsword/axe's though. Anyway once again thanks so much for the input and rest assure that it is greatly appreciated.

    Offhand does not give you any additional bonus to armor type. Only mainhand counts.

    I said **autos** auto attacks DO give that weapons bonus dmg. I Said the exact same thing to someone else, and they provided the proof that it indeed does. :> JUST autos. Lol

    Dark Runners become more viable soon. With the new skill changes, likely in the next patch, Dark Runner builds with just 2 points in Auramancy for the 13% damage reduction will be semi-popular.
