    -2/25/13: Scald is a dps loss so the build has been shifted to 61Temp 10RB 5Para
    -3/30/13: After Hotfix5 Skyfall finisher rotation is optimal due to Arc procs

    Since I am using Naga mouse, I use the following changes to make the flow a little better for me. Plus I find I cannot have LT in a macro because I'll clip it. Starting with 3AP

    Macro 1:
    Arc
    Charged Pulse

    while CP is casting I go to Macro 2:
    Double Pulse
    Dual Pulse

    as soon as 3 ap up I hit
    Electricity Cascade (will change this to Fiery burst to affect new rotation)

    then single button
    Electricity Blast

    single button
    Shock Pulse

    macro:
    flamespear
    Fiery Burst (will swap to Electricity Cascade per new rotation)

    single button
    Lightning torrent

    So I have these laid out 1,2,3,6,9,8,7 to go in a circular pattern around the mouse buttons
    After lightning torrent goes off I get back to start of rotation and go all the way thru until button 7. I have another shock pulse on 4 and icy burst on 5. so I do 3 shocks, then icy, 3 shocks and back to start.

    This also allows me to have the last three buttons for AoE.

    Would eventually like to figure out a place to put an interrupt. Will work on getting rid of one of the shock pulse buttons and retraining myself.

    Thanks for the builds Steel!!!

    Does the LT in the first rotation make it drag out to 15 seconds somehow? because with a perfect connection and in theory you would getting to your second Arc 13 seconds after the first and it would not be off cooldown.

    Im guessing the animation lag on double pulse helps drag it out?? Or LT is actually longer that 6 seconds with animation or connection lag?

    As I also have a naga, I opted to use the method the second poster used so it would flow better for me. The rotation helped out my dps over the one I was using, but I have no idea what numbers I should be aiming for. I'm in pre-expert stuff. A mixture of crafted, world gear merchant, and mostly random dropped stuff. Self buffed with no consumables, 1930 AP / 1785 crit hovering at around 8.5k dps. Any ideas on how far off I am from where I want to be at this gear level?

    How much of a dps loss would it be if eb was left out altogether

    It would be a slight dps loss since you would use Shock Pulse in its place and EB's base damage is more than Shock Pulse. Plus each tic can crit.

    Everything lines up perfect and there is no lag on PTS. Try it out.

    Is this version parsing higher than the old 61 Tempest (61 Temp/10 RB/5 Para I think)? It feels a little weird to be using the Riftblade Bursts in a Tempest build.

    It is. If you use Skyfall you lose dps. I prefer this version with some of the Riftblade bursts mixed into it. Only because everything lines up. I don't have to put up with Shock Pulse x 5 at the tail end of the rotation like I do on live.

    Have you parsed this soul build with live gear? If so, what numbers did you get? Thanks. Trying to compare it to what I get with other combos I've been trying tonight.

    are you just using focus fire off macro or saving it for something specific? Or did they remove it in 2.2?

    I think he may be leaving it out to better micromanage it around other raid cooldowns.

    Focused Fire is still there I just assume that everyone is putting it in their builders.

    Hey Steel,

    Great work as always. Got some questions.

    Why not put arc in builder 1 like this?:

    Builder1
    cast arc
    cast Charged Pulse
    cast Double Pulse
    cast Dual Pulse

    and why not macroing flamespear and electricity blast together? and rotating it like this":

    shock pulse - FS - EB

    It seems easier that way that or am i missing something?

    That's actually a very good idea.
