    4th rotation is searing x 1 and then a 1 point icy burst. Then Rift Strike is right off cooldown ready to use.

    Will try this out. Been a pure riftblade fan for a long long time, but haven't bothered working out a proper rotation since...I dunno. Thanks.

    So I'm curious. I currently run 3 tank specs on my Warrior, just because I have a really frail friend I group with a lot. So I've come to really like the sword-n-board with my Warrior. I also really like the Riftblade.

    My question is twofold:

    First, how crucial is Tempest to a functional Riftblade?

    Second, how viable is a sword-n-board Riftblade? Would I be giving up too much for too little in return? I suppose the antecedent is: what weapon setup would be best for a Riftblade: DW, 2-H, Shield...?

    I haven't really played around with it to know yet, but I'm sure I will. I just wonder if you have (or anyone has) some insight? Thanks!

    Don't you have power problems doing that though?

    is rift implosion still a gain for those who do not have 4 piece yet?

    A Sword/Board Riftblade will lose 1.3x weapon modification compared to Dual Wield or 2H. So you do lose some dps. Tempest is not an absolute to a Riftblade build but it does offer non physical damage buffs and you don't worry about disconnects with Shock Pulse.

    You have power problems even without doing that. So I am counting on Ailion to do something about it. But not expecting much.

    After 2.2 Rift Implosion is a gain if you have Tempest as a sub soul due to Range damage bonuses. My parses show that Rift Implosion is hitting slightly higher than Searing Strike.

    Good guide here already got rotation down, any chance you might take a stab at the 61 para build?

    Looks about right. Rb has always been pretty simple rotation wise. I'll probably make minor tweaks like I usually do like switching frost strike to macro 1 and RI having its own key but yeah this looks standard. How much damage does the RI do now with its stacks maxed? Also can it crit?

    How much is storm blade and elemental touch doing now on crit? Number wise.

    Rift Implosion crits more than Searing Strike.

    Under Ailion's parsing rules they are both critting over 1k.

    Good to know. In raid I have around 30% from crit power. Thought with the loss of slayer baring and change in RB crit damage buff it's probably like 25% now sadly

    They crit over 1k with 42 crit power on PTS. So yes the potential is much better.
