That's a bit harsh.
To be fair, a lot, a lot, a lot, (A LOT!) of warriors out there are too lazy to read your entire guide and claim these assassin's pieces are a max DPS switch. However, you and I both know that is not the case in *all* situations. And we also both know that it's a really trivial amount of DPS increase even in the perfect situation (for the average player, I understand you also cater to the hardcore speed clearers, so that's a fair point).
But, the average players that have already invested in berserker's and then look at your updated guide are going to be encouraged to drop gold on what may be an uninformed amount of DPS (0.25%). It should be painfully obvious to the end reader how much the damage increase really is.
It's important to balance the purpose of a guide with the audience in mind. Point in effect using exotic armor (because most of your audience does not have ascended):
* No food, Solo play: Berserker's > Assassin's
* No food, perfect group comp: Berserker's > Asssasin's
* No food, perfect group comp, sigil stacking: Berserker's > Assassin's (...?)
* Food, perfect group comp, sigil stacking: Assassin's is 0.3% better. (This doesn't even apply when using dungeon specific and skale venom)
* Food, perfect group comp, sigil stacking, utility as sharpening stone: Assassin's is 0.25-0.5% better than Zerks.
A 0.25% increase is like adding 100 damage to your 40,000 hundred blades...
I feel your audience would benefit from non-perfect scenario dps numbers. It could also be that ascended armor makes a bigger difference, but I really can't justify that in my head. I will try to get those numbers and try that out later too for sure.
When comparing the old build which stacked perception stacks and ate power food, if you make a small switch from the precision signet to the power signet and then compare that to this build, it's only a 0.07% dps increase.
Even this current meta build, when I switch the head, chest, and leggings assassin's to zerk and switch the shoulder, gloves, and boots to assassin's I get more DPS than before.
But again, all this is exotics... Who knows. I'll try to spend some time getting ascended armor in the mix and figuring that out
