    My experience is that they work, just are scary as hell. Especially if you get the hasted speed buff, you don't want to move a muscle after porting cause it puts you right on the edge.

    and imo you only really need to be hitting On the Double if you are going to be hit by a wave, you run right through, and it will be up for every wave. i dont recommend using retreat at all... most fail with it. have your 0 pt skill as RS, and you can use the shadow shift to get from side to side faster for stingers, and avoiding breaths

    also having shadow shift is nice in the case that you do happen to get hit by a wave, you can shadow shift while you are being pushed off, back to the platform... obviously this is an o **** situation. just have on the double and u win
    One line in here piqued my interest.

    ONE apostle up at a time? At what time are you doing phase jumps? P1->P2 should be around 1:40ish for that to happen. WTB your raids DPS

    You just kill the first apostle before the second spawns, nothing weird about what he said ;p.

    I did enjoyed your post. Seems you have a good grasp on rogue role on Akylios.

    Yah I thought it out, and theoretically perfect execution would only leave you with 1 Apostle at a time.

    Doesnt require perfect execution, by now for us 9/10 tries have only one Apostle alive at a time.

    Only time we have two up is when the tank moved in too early on Phase 1, or got the orb in phase 2 hence moved in instead of getting HC on him etc etc, rarely happens.

    We used to have two apostles up until we changed the tactic, now we enter p3 with..Maybe 1 deepclaw at 5%, and the Apostle from 20% to 70%, debuffed for double damage, usually dying the next ~30 seconds.

    Or they kill Apostles in less than 1 minute each. Either way it was a ZZzz brag post.

    Then when it casts, use

    #show deaden
    cast @focus deaden

    Won't reset StM stacks/combo points and won't change your target. No reason for MM not to interrupt, they are always in range and always have energy.
    We do that as backup already, but honestly, am I just supposed to sit there and look pretty and not interrupt? They gave me the ability to shoot sparkles from my hand.

    Your threats are mine.
