    Default Coldheart's Sc/Ele (AB) spec for 1.3 - 1277 dps self buffed (1:58 parse)

    As promised here is the rotation i use for the parse i posted in the dps theoryrafting thread. I will also explain how to have 2 SC's performing the AB rotation at the same time, should you wish to do so.

    http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/5984/dps3.jpg - parse link, worth mentioning that I had a few AB half crits in the parse, so should be more dps if that gets fixed.

    Build link - http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1z...sbo.Vtcz0x0Adz

    Rotation -
    Thunderbolt x 3
    Ice shear
    Building storm on
    Cloudburst
    Use CD's
    Toggle on Static flux
    Lightning strike
    Arctic Blast
    Raging Storm
    Toggle Static Flux/Building storm immediately off when Raging storm is cast.
    Ice shear
    Cloudburst (if your doing it right LS will just be coming off CD now)
    Static flux on
    Lightning strike - You have to be fast and perfect with the rotation, but if you are LS will get the benfit of Intensify elements which will have about 0 seconds left.
    Cloudburst
    Static Flux off
    Cloudburst
    Cloudburst
    Thunderbolt
    Ice shear
    Repeat

    Having 2 SC in a raid with building storm.
    SC 1 uses rotation above.
    SC 2 uses :-

    Thunderbolt x 3
    Ice shear
    Lightning strike
    Cloudburst x 4
    Then reverts to the main rotation above starting with only 1 Thunderbolt obviously.

    Doing this each of the Stormcallers will be building their storm and using Arctic blast while the other is doing the second part of the rotation, which uses neither.



    Hope this is of some use to someone and would be interested to see what better geared mages can do with this, as my gear isn't that great at the moment.

    Why start off with Thunderbolt and not Raging Storm?

    1. Raging storm is one of the best dps spells we have so you'll want to use it with cooldowns and with ice shear and electrified x 3 already up.

    2. It gets a 15% damage bonus from Hypothermia, so you'll want to use it after an Arctic Blast.

    This is what Deadly posted in a thread regarding dps after patch.

    'I have similar stats and my unbuffed BS/AB parses are in the 1175-1225 range now '

    Referring to over 1200 spell power and 690 crit.

    So you have better stats than that? or show the parse?

    1:58 parse says nothing.

    Seriously can people stop posting bs. I appreciate the efforts I truly do but make the efforts realistic.

    5min+ parses only.

    Can get back into LS/AB mode quicker with 4 than 5 and nothing will be on cd.

    I did test 3 4 and 5 and found 4 to be the best.

    I've read only a few of your posts, but can tell you're a moron already.

    Firstly, how is this post BS? Because you say so? You appreciate the efforts? haha, get over yourself.

    Secondly, in the thread where I posted the original parse, i was told the ideal time was around 2 mins. I admitted in that very thread I didn't know what the ideal time to parse was and to be honest, i don't care. I did the 2 minute parse for the benefit of that discussion and was asked to post my build, which i have done.

    lol at people.

    One of us has posted a build/rotation thread in an effort to pass on some information relating to a specific spec - could be useful information, might not be.

    One of us has posted that the thread is 'BS' because it doesn't meet said person's criteria. When called out, said person reverts to using 'forum joined date' as some sort of insult.

    I'll let the forum decide which of our posts is 'BS' and who is the moron.

    Most of the time you want to try to post parses that are around 5 minutes or so to see if you can keep up the same DPS over an extended time and it also shows if there are mana issues or anything else that would effect the viability of a spec for raid encounters.

    One of the problem with shorter parses is that they might be too high due to a lot of cooldowns being blown during them without having a chance to even out.

    Cooldowns are used like 8-10 seconds into the parse and are about to come off of cooldown when i end the parse, so theoretically it should just repeat again over the next 2 mins?

    No mana issues to speak of at all, it's better than it was before patch as cloudburst uses alot less mana anyway - then there's always mana vials.
