    Default [4.5] Typhoon AoE

    Don't listen to threadsafe, he's been harassing, insulting, trashtalking and ordering me to do things when he can't prove a single words he say, keep it clean and ignore him in game and on forums for your own sake.

    Hello everyone,
    During various RR, i saw lot's of primalist not using the right AoE spec for maximum dps. So i'm making a guide for an easy typhoon spec so everyone can deal a decent amount of damage on multiple target (aim for more than 4).

    What's this spec ?
    Well, it's your classic typhoon AoE spec to deal with huge groups of ennemies, as simple as that.

    Where can you use it ?
    During RR, when you farm invasion for planarite in PTW, maybe on futur World bosses/raid bosses when you need a dedicated AoE dps , who knows.


    What's the soul tree?

    https://rift.magelo.com/en/soultree#NkGaiGy/!1m10/!5

    Masteries are:
    - Exhileration
    - Forest Matron
    - Feline Reflexes
    - Elemental Affinity
    - Ancestral Force

    Legendaries are :
    - Raze
    - Icy Cleave
    - No Witnesses
    - Tsunami
    - Primal Avatar : Griffon

    How to play the spec :

    Buffs :
    Font of Frenzy

    Macros :

    Spam Macro :
    #show Primal Avatar: Griffon
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @group01 No Witnesses
    cast Storm Rage
    cast Primal Avatar: Griffon
    cast @gtae Tsunami
    cast Rippling Ether
    cast Low Stability
    cast Wind Shear
    cast Icy Cleave
    cast Icy Shards

    Tsunami Macro :
    #show Tsunami
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @gtae Tsunami
    cast Tsunami

    Fury Macro :
    #show Underworld Shards
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Hurricane
    cast Cloudburst
    cast Hail Volley
    cast Wrathfall
    cast Underworld Shards

    Optionnal : No Avatar macro
    #show Wind shear
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @group01 No Witnesses
    cast Storm Rage
    cast @gtae Tsunami
    cast Rippling Ether
    cast Low Stability
    cast Wind Shear
    cast Icy Cleave
    cast Icy Shards

    Prepull :
    Start at 100 Cunning (switch to dervish and use avatar or to farseer and use soul shroud are the easiest way to gain cunning outside of fights).

    Rotation :

    Try to be melee all the time for maximum dps.

    Easy way :
    Keep Icy cleave + Raze up
    Spam macro
    Use Ancestral Force when ready
    Use Hurricane when ready

    Detailed rota for more dps :

    Engage :
    Start with Torrential rain -> Tsunami macro -> Icy Cleave -> Raze -> Spam macro until you cast Tsunami again (you'll have 2 Tsunami* up at the same time now)

    *During this engage you'll cast 1 Tsunami in its own macro then you buff yourself and by using the spam macro Avatar Griffon will reset the cd of Tsunami allowing you to cast a second one for a huge burst dps.

    After using the 2nd Tsunami during engage (you'll be at 50 Cunning) -> Fury macro until you reach 100 Fury -> Ancestral Force

    Here you'll be at 100 fury and you can start your rotation :
    Refresh Torrential rain/Icy Cleave/Raze if needed -> Spam macro to 100 Cunning -> wait for Tsunami cd while spamming -> Tsunami is used from the spam macro -> Fury macro until you reach 100 Fury -> Restart rotation

    Tips for a little more dps :
    1. When you see Avatar Griffon will come back soon, use the Optional macro Until you cast Tsunami and then use Spam macro to reset Tsunami CD with Avatar (like in the engage) to have 2 Tsunami up again.
    2. If you clip Hail Blast from Fury macro it's not a big deal you want to go at 100 fury as fast as possible so don't worry about it it's not the most important dps spells you'll cast.

    Parses from 8 lvl 72 raid Dummy :
    Left is the Easy way and right is the Detailed rotation while using the tip #1 :
    [4.5] Typhoon AoE-typhoon-aoe.png
    Using Detailed rotation and the tips will give you about 5.5% more dps.

    I hope it will help some of you dealing more AoE dps and maybe in the futur it will be revelant to have an AoE spec in our kit, who knows !

    Have fun and have a nice day !

    With Tsunami carrying so much, isn't leggy SS procc for +50% worth a shot? (Sharknado style)

    Tsunami require 100 cunning and SS push to fury so you can't use Tsunami after casting SS. Also relying on the proc itself may not be as strong as a fix 30% from raze i think.

    This spec seems pretty useful, there are some problems that I have with it though unfortunately. I think it is still good for AOE damage, I have to agree once I tried it.

    People still play primalist? Smh. Figured everyone would've transitioned away by this point.

    Primalist is really fun to play and still one of the strongest class in the game for every kind of role.

    Less and less people play it nowadays and but i'll still main it all days over any classes !

    I love making guide to help the few people trying prima as well as for min/maxer like me
