If I have all my specials up, I can drop a mob faster than any other class, and I have all toons at 15 now. If you get a big mace in your mainhand, your aim crit will be 200+, doesn't take long to mow thru stuff at that rate. Burglar DPS is very very connected to the specials, and using them at the right time.
Now, put 2 burglars together that both have exploit up, and let's talk about back to back red conjunctions and DPS :P. I can drop mobs in a burglar duo that no other 2 class combo can even come close too.
I love this class because you have a couple ways to go. Great evasion when you need it, great DPS when you need, and decent crowd control. For me, burglar is the best class I've ever played in an MMO.
I love my damn burglar lol.
Note: I am a nerd.
