    The point distribution is pretty obvious

    To be fair, tossing in Distracting Pulse is a better power dump; but the extra ogcd's is a hell of a lotta macro lag; it's hard to keep the numbers up as you'll occasionally lose a gcd by including too many

    Default Because why not...

    I've been writing all this in txt files; from memory... so if looks like crap, apologies (and yeah, that means errors can be present)

    I'm also omitting Tempest since I mentioned it earlier (of note, 10para/5rb parses higher, and 5/5 E. Flux trade was an additional ~33k gain for me), and Reaver's already been covered in the guide section.

    Edit: Including previous link to gear for quick comparison - no consumables of any kind, stones, sigils, or the likes. Just the armor buffs for all parses
    https://imgur.com/a/Z2tIcXh
    --------------------------------------

    61 Paragon, 15 Riftblade, Tempest (900k+ on my parses)
    (5 E. Flux, 1 E. Precision, 3 E. Empowerment, 1 Fiery Burst, 2 Scald, 3 Affinity)

    Legendaries: Alacrity, Unleashed, Rising Waterfall, Icy Burst, Flamespear
    Buffs: Storm Blade, Enhanced Conductivity, Way of the Wind, Way of the River, Avatar of Wind
    Masteries: 62 PP, 64 ES, 65 PM

    Notes: Spec performs better when Dual Wielding
    - Unleashed I find to be better DPS than Tactics (at the moment), as it still reduces the cd of Shifting Blades.
    - Only bother with Reaping Harvest when using Combat Focus (and combo with shifting blades)


    Opening: As you're running in...(Grasping the Horizon) Setting Moon > Rising Waterfall > (Icy Burst) SM > RW > Flamespear > (Icy Burst) >
    -
    (Combat Focus) > (Shifting Blades) > Tranquility > (Alacrity) Rising Waterfall > Reaping Harvest* >
    Death Touch > RW > RH* >
    Setting Moon > RW > (IB) >
    Flamespear > RW > (SB) >
    SM > RW > RH*
    SM > RW > (IB)
    Tranquility > RW > RH > Death Touch > RW > RH (this is for maximizing the use of Alacrity)
    Flamespear > RW > (SB).....

    Refresh Flamespear as necessary, use Shifting Blades on cd (when you can combo it with Combat Focus, do so: and then your next 3 finishers will be RH), Icy Burst will be your primary finisher anytime outside of CF.


    (ease of use macro)

    #show Tranquility
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self Power Manipulation
    cast Tranquility
    cast Rising Waterfall
    cast Death Touch
    cast Setting Moon

    ----------------------------------------------------------------




    61 Riftblade (~1.05mil on my parses)
    Legendaries: Blade of the Ascended, Rift Burst, Icy Burst... x2 Tactics buffs (shock pulse, ravaging strike, etc)
    Masteries: 62 Steadfast Soul, 65 PM
    Buffs: Avatar of the Rift, Blade of the Ascended, off soul buffs...

    *MUST DUAL WIELD* Expect a significant difference in numbers otherwise.

    there are several options, that all perform close to each other.

    10 Reaver, 5 Tempest (amped, entropic embrace, pandemic synergy, 2 shadow strength)
    - Has more cleave potential but requires more micromanagement (dire corruption, soul sickness; 12% dmg boost)
    11 Tempest, 4 Reaver (amped, enhanced power, jolt; entropic embrace)
    - Extra power dump (Jolt) for higher Eternal up-time; also higher dmg on fights with longer disconnects
    11 Tempest, 4 Warchanter
    - Highest up-time on Eternal (jolt, stand tall!, deep breaths), but capable of starving itself (which can result in lost gcd's). ogcd hell spec; but highest numbers i've seen so far...


    Opening: Ravaging Strike > Ravaging Strike > (Fiery Burst) Frost Strike > Rift Strike > Flamespear
    -
    (Burst Synergy) + (Rift Burst) Soul Sickness > Stonepear > Searing Strike (Icy Burst)
    Builder > Builder > Builder (Icy Burst)>
    Builder (Fiery Burst)
    Builder > Builder > Builder (Burst Synergy) + (Rift Burst)....


    Depending on which variant you choose to play, and which 64 Mastery you take, things will shift around. (10sec Flamespear vs 16 second flamespear. Adding in Dire Corruption, or not) - But the above "rotation" is the same for all of them.

    Maintain Frost Strike (refresh BEFORE it falls off to boost it's own dmg), flamespear, soul sickness / dc, Legendary Tactics
    Rift Strike on CD
    Always use Burst Synergy with Rift Burst


    ----------------------------------------------------------------



    61 Warlord, 8 Paragon, 7 Riftblade (850k+ on my parses)
    Legendaries: Ready Posture, Everything is a Weapon, Breaking Blow, Icy Burst, Rising Waterfall
    Masteries: 65 PM, 64 ES
    Buffs: Ready Posture, Deadly Posture, Way of the River, Turn the Blade, Storm Blade

    NOTES: I still have other Warlord variants to investigate
    - Dual Wield when applicable, not necessary
    - This is NOT a cheeseball 1pt IB spam spec (its a 2pt BB mostly :P :P :P )
    - In not taking 'A Quick Death' as the legendary, it WILL get buffed after finishers; but cannot be used >70% unless Ready Posture's buff procs.
    - This spec is built around around getting as many numbers out there as possible, to try and force proc the 300% boosted AQD.
    - In all of my 5min+ parses, I've had less than 5 instances where I had to use Rising Waterfall (last resort)
    - *IMPORTANT* Only ONE Piercing Thrust will get the super boost after a warlord finisher. Always use another ability for the second Everything is a Weapon 100% boost. (I will simulate below)

    Opener: Into the Breach...
    -
    (Fiery Burst) KoTH Macro* > (Icy Burst) KoTH Macro*
    (Arterial Strike) (Backhand) Breaking Blow > PT > AQD macro*
    (Arterial Strike) (Backhand) Breaking Blow > PT > AQD macro*
    (Arterial Strike) (Backhand) Breaking Blow > PT > AQD macro*
    (Arterial Strike) (Backhand) Breaking Blow > PT > AQD macro*
    (Fiery Burst) KoTH Macro* > (Icy Burst) KoTH Macro*....


    5 Buttons (Piercing Thrust on it's own)

    *AQD Macro
    #show Decisive Strike
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self Power Manipulation
    cast Battlefield Medic
    cast A Quick Death
    cast Battlefield Experience
    cast Decisive Strike
    cast King of the Hill
    cast Rising Waterfall


    *KoTH Macro
    #show King of the Hill
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self Power Manipulation
    cast Battlefield Medic
    cast King of the Hill
    cast Decisive Strike
    cast A Quick Death
    cast Rising Waterfall


    #show Breaking Blow
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Arterial Strike
    cast Backhand
    cast Breaking Blow


    #show Fiery Burst
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Fiery Burst
    cast Icy Burst


    ----------------------------------------------------------------





    61 Champion (~700k on my parses)

    I've already overwritten it during all the various build tests... So I can't say exactly atm, but the idea was (for a ST build anyways):

    Bull Rush > (mark of extermination) L. Punishing Blow
    -
    Cornered Beast > Bladefury
    Disruptive Strike > Bladefury
    Savage Sweep/Mighty Blow > Stand and Deliver! > Bladefury
    Disruptive Strike > L. Punishing Blow

    ... repeat XD.

    There is no offhand eternal for war, use 1 hand eternal and the best non eternal 1 hand you have.
    New player? Apply code TD2TGJH9WGYYLEGC2EMJ or use the link for some free stuff.
