    Default Bug with Cadence procing "increased fire power"?

    From what I see, Cadence only procs the MM talent "increased fire power" if the first tick crits. It will not proc if a tick beyond the initial one crits during the channeling. Only reason I think this is a bug is because MM channeling abilities don't work this way. Is it because they are somewhat "different" in the way that you can move while using them? I tested Crossfire & Strafe and they will proc Increased Fire Power on crits beyond the first tick, if the first one doesn't crit. I am also pretty sure Sab ticks trigger it as well. /shrug, most all callings, even the bleed heavy ones, can keep the talent up. It can be a little sketchy trying to keep it up with cadence and I am not sure if it is suppose to work that way.

    This, I believe, is intended. Cadence is different in that it, in essence, places a dot on the target, which follows different rules regarding IFP procs. It only procs on the first "tick" of the dot (as most procs do).

    It's weird, yes, but it's how it is. It honestly shouldn't create too much of a problem in a raid environment (you'll crit enough to maintain uptime).

    I thought it might be something like that. I see dusk till dawn works more in line with cadence. D'oh. =( Indeed though also auto attacks sneak through and often crit. I guess it's more so a case that MM got it nice

    always intersperse power chords and occasional swift shot to proc skills/trinks and to reach a CoR 5cp faster.
    2cp=powerchord
    3 cp=cadence

    swift shot and power chord are also handy to have in macro incase you are outside the miserable range of barding abilities and need to keep up some dps and build cp's.

    Burnbard (the top healing bard spec) relies on a swift shot in the combo to help ensure moltenskin and similar procs. Though, this does still come at a cost of not having VoJ for those raids who frequently go oom on progression fights)

    also of note, and off topic, a bard spec with fanout= lots of favor/prestige and exp when doing conquest, as anthem will grant you reward from raid member fights and spamout will help you tag stuff not covered by your raid group. Far more favor than some simple aoe spec.
