    Default How to best manage burst on a 40-49 Tempest/Paragon

    I am running 28/26/4 Warlord and need some advice on the best way to manage the burst mechanics.

    These are my timed abilities:

    Arc, Flurry, Lightning Torrent, Tranquility, Delayed Pulse, Charged Pulse.

    Skyfall is my other Finisher.

    What is the most efficient ways to use them? Right now I have a macro with Arc - Delayed Pulse - Charged Pulse - Tranquility - Skyfall and one with Arc - Lightning Torrent - Flurry.

    Default BooM

    #show BooM
    supressmacrofailures
    cast Focus Fire
    cast Delayed Pulse
    cast Arc
    cast Charges Pulse
    cast Double Pulse (could be Dual Pulse not logged on atm)
    cast Tranquility


    Guarantees a Big Boom, whether they take the Arc on Delayed Pulse or Tranquility, doesn't matter.

    Haha if I wanted to be melee I'd go Rogue. I want to be a mage in plate.

    Should you never use Arc with the channeled attacks? I know it only hits on the first three ticks, but I wasn't sure which was better overall.

    He doesn't have Double Pulse, Dual Pulse, or Focus Fire in his build yet.

    #show Arc
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Arc
    cast Delayed Pulse
    cast Charged Pulse
    cast Tranquility

    OP, never use Arc on Lightning Torrent or Flurry. Start off with LT then use that macro. When Arc is back up use LT or Flurry if LT isn't up then Macro again and repeat.

    Thank you. Do I need Skyfall at all, or do I just want to keep that on its own key for situational use?

    Your burst macro will be up every 15 seconds. In between that you should be able to build up 3 AP and fire of Skyfall, then your burst macro should be up by the time that finishes. Use the available channel ability to build up another 3 AP and use the burst macro again.

    Thank you very much, I have already noticed a huge difference.
