Just tested some openers and their damage. I only included damage to the target for the duration of Cheapshot / Kidney Shot. I also used the tooltips and 522 daggers for the numbers. (Please feel free to correct me if I haven't used proper Math anywhere)
Cheapshot -> Hemo* (11755) -> Ambush (43660) -> Evisc (77091) -> MFD -> Kidney -> Backstab (30624) -> Backstab (30624) = 193754
*At this point there isnt any bleed on the target so I reduced Hemos damage by 1/3.
My opener with Relentless Strikes proc:
Cheapshot -> Rupture (11180) -> Ambush (43660) -> Ambush (43660) -> Kidney -> MFD -> Evisc (77091) -> Backstab (30624) = 206215
My opener without Relentless Strikes proc:
Cheapshot -> Rupture (11180) -> Ambush (43660) -> Backstab (30624) -> Kidney -> MFD -> Evisc (77091) -> Backstab (30624) = 193179
So 40% of the time you are doing 206215, 60% of the time 193179. With Hemo opener you are doing 193754 100% of the time.
Thank you for the detailed openers. I've been experimenting with these the past few days with quite a bit of success. Now I've only been playing rogue for a week but I'm curious about opening without cheap shot, say on slowed casters. Mainly in a 1vs1 situation but something like.
Garrote -> Ambush -> Backstab -> Evis -> MFD -> Kidney (full) -> Dance -> Ambush -> Ambush -> Evis
I guess my question is does anyone open and dance without cheap shot?
Edit: It's not optimal damage but I feel it leaves you open for a vanish -> cheap if you are certain it will get you a kill. I also feel less vulnerable to an early trinket.
