    Default Bard question

    In a Vacuum would you get more HPS using 1 cadence or 2 to build points for Coda of Restoration?

    Cadence heals for 50x3 3 Points
    CoR for 400
    Power Chord 2 points

    3x Cadence + 2x Cadence + CoR = 650 over 6 seconds
    3x Cadence + Power Chord + CoR = 550 over 5 seconds.

    Power Chord edges out. 110 vs 108.333

    3x cadence + Power Chord is also better for energy.


    Also

    All motifs -> 3x Cadence + Power Cord -> Virtuoso -> 15x CoR -> Riff -> CoR is so, SO sexy.


    I'll go pull actual numbers soon.

    Edit; Also assuming no crits.

    Yeah that makes sense Ive only been playing the bard for like 2 hours and I forgot I didnt get power chord. My initial thought was I didnt want to waste a GCD not healing but I guess it isnt really that big of a deal if its actually a higher HPS.

    All I have been doing is either 1 or 2 Cadences and a CoR.

    I have been doing all of the motifs and Riff when it was up, but it was kind of boring. Great heals though and I am not even high enough to get virtuoso yet. I guess Ill go spec power chord.

    Cadence: 80
    120 Crits

    CoR: 476

    5x Cadence + CoR = 876 over 5 seconds = 175.2 hps
    3x Cadence + Power Chord + CoR = 716 over 4 seconds = 179 hps

    Assuming 10% crit
    5x Cadence + CoR = 896 = 179.2 hps
    3x Cadence + Power Chord + CoR = 728 = 182 hps

    Assuming 33% Crit
    5x = 941 over 5 seconds = 188.2 hps
    3x = 755 over 4 seconds = 188.75 hps

    Assuming 50% Crit rate
    5x Cadence + CoR = 976 over 5 Seconds = 195.2 hps
    3x Cadence + Power Chord + CoR = 776 over 4 = 194 hps

    More crit = Cadence is better HPS. Needs a lot of crit, though.
