How It Works

This build combines two elements: Penetrating Shot and the Victimize Key Passive.

While, Penetrating Shot has always been decent to good, especially when combined with Rapid Fire for single target, it has consistently lacked the single target damage to be played as a stand-alone skill unless bugs that buffed its damage heavily were present. Luckily for us, a new bug has arrived!

The last missing piece bug of the puzzle is that Victimize used to be bugged and virtually do no damage but that has changed. It now not only does great damage with enough Vulnerable Damage on our Gear and Paragon -- up to 400% of the initial hit -- but it is bugged the other way and also double dips many of the damage multipliers Rogue has. This will be explained in a detailed section.
