in this image the orange +2713 is the hdex that you want

and yes, anything that is swinging/poking/slapping/smashing/stabbin/slicing/dicing, etc --- hdex (imo) :)

I see no diff in dps between 2810 Hdex and 3364 Hdex in 2 zerkers FYI... thousands of general mobs, couple dozen raid targets. My one BST that i went HAM on Hdex with new augs is wrecking it (2900 Hdex). Working on getting a rogue above 3k to compare to 2700.

Figure Hstr might be needed once Hdex is 3k.. few hundred more missions to go!

yeah zerkers are easier to hit that sweet crit cap than some others

Hstr is trash, though. Lots of factors could be impacting your zerkers, but our (raid force) parsing shows a significant dps boost once you max out with ToL hDex type 5s versus the CoV type 5s. It's still beneficial to min/max hDex.

1 and 3 are just over 3300 Hdex. 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are around 2800. 7-9 dunno, not mine. 2600 is good.. 2700 is better... 2800 is perfect? Im not sure its worth the work to go 3k+

Bst at 2900

2700+, unk (assuming 2500-2700), 2700+, 2700+

To get back to OP, yes you want the side #.. as far as how far? I've been wrestling with it for 2 weeks now, and I am not sure that the value is there above 2800.

What are you actually showing us in that zerker chart? What's the fight? Was it purely zerk dps without any additional modifiers? Was it live or in a controlled environment? That basically means nothing to me without controlling for all the other factors that could be influencing dps.

Boxed Zland raid, 4 drivers, 47 char. all zerkers had a bard/shaman, 2 had a bst, all rogues had a brd/shm, 3 had a bst.

All same encounter. Bst #1!!! (made me sad)

are you sure zerk #2 is 2800? crit of 77 would tend to imply not
