    Well, you may want to get Shred to R2, since you'll be using it to help build up to 5x bleed on single-targets. I'd prob ditch Howl, since it has a pretty long cd, and it won't do much at R1 anyways. I'd also rank up ERush, if you're using that as your minor heal. Supernatural Power would also prob be a better EU to go w/ heavy Massacre use, provided you get a bit of End and Rec for smoother energy w/ it. I'd prob also include a wider AoE attack- like Frenzy, Venom Breath, Lacerating Cyclone (w/ Vortex adv), or Epidemic. I'd also tweak the specs and stats a bit, and get you a Mastery (prob Strength Mastery). You'll also want to be using the Melee dps role for this. Here's an example edit of the build:

    (Unnamed Build) - Freeform (Melee Damage)
    v3.44:37

    Super Stats
    Level 6: Strength (Primary)
    Level 10: Endurance (Secondary)
    Level 15: Constitution (Secondary)

    Talents
    Level 1: The Devastator (Str: 10, Con: 10, Rec: 10, End: 8)
    Level 6: Paramilitary Training (Str: 3, Con: 3, Rec: 3, End: 3)
    Level 9: Amazing Stamina (Rec: 5, End: 5)
    Level 12: Bodybuilder (Str: 5, End: 5)
    Level 15: Relentless (Str: 5, Rec: 5)
    Level 18: Physical Conditioning (Str: 5, Con: 5)
    Level 21: Boundless Reserves (Con: 5, End: 5)

    Powers
    Level 1: Bestial Fury
    Level 1: Shred (Rank 2, Penetrating Strikes)
    Level 6: Aspect of the Bestial
    Level 8: Night Warrior (Rank 2, Rank 3)
    Level 11: Supernatural Power
    Level 14: Frenzy (Rank 2, Fear Sense)
    Level 17: Resurgence (Rank 2)
    Level 20: Massacre (Rank 2, Bloody Mess)
    Level 23: Eviscerate (Messy)
    Level 26: Endorphin Rush (Rank 2, Rank 3)
    Level 29: Antagonize (Rank 2)
    Level 32: Pounce
    Level 35:
    Level 38:
    Adv. Points: 26/36

    Travel Powers
    Level 6:
    Level 35:

    Specializations
    Strength: Swole (2/3)
    Strength: Physical Peak (3/3)
    Strength: Brutality (2/2)
    Strength: Overpower (3/3)
    Warden: Fortified Gear (3/3)
    Warden: Ruthless (2/2)
    Warden: Upper Hand (2/3)
    Warden: The Best Defense (3/3)
    Vindicator: Aggressive Stance (2/2)
    Vindicator: Merciless (3/3)
    Vindicator: Focused Strikes (3/3)
    Vindicator: Mass Destruction (2/3)
    Mastery: Strength Mastery (1/1)

    The last 2-3 powers can be w/e ya want.

    For single-target dps, it uses Shred to put up Shredded and at least 1x Bleed (ideally 5x Bleed in longer fights), uses charged Massacre as its main filler attack, and weaves in taps of Eviscerate to refresh both debuffs (and to proc AotB, since Massacre can't do that alone). Frenzy can be the main AoE here, since it was made into a pbAoE (Shred also has a smaller cleave component). Gears mostly for Str, w/ some Con and End/Rec.

    I use the same as flow's build with Whirling ult (for overpower) with invisible weapons. It's a good build!
