    cast Skyfall

    on its own key:Lightning torrent,Icy burst, Offensive blast, Chain pulse

    Abilities showing:Focus Fire, Flamespear, Delayed pulse



    Rotation

    0AP

    LT>Icy***>dual pulse>delayed pulse(shock pulse second time around)>Arc

    Charged pulse>double pulse>flamespear>electricity blast>skyfall repeat.


    NOTES:

    ***LT>Icy(skyfall can be used instead if 1. energy is low 2. latency is bad and screwing up timing for dual pulse cd).


    Stat weighted scaling - Heavy CP(.90), High AP(.60), Very low phys crit(.13).



    This spec was intended to minmize the dps the loss for the Arc/Sb nerf , however, there is still a fairly wide gap because of crit rng but will stabilize after 2-3min.

    This is the highest "sustained dps" build we have atm. by sustained i mean it does not rely on a 1min cd and only requires a 20m range so disconnects are of little mention.



    rough numbers to think over and to show the scalability of the spec.

    dummy before energy issues is around 20-22k in my gear(almost all T2) with 1135CP
    (keep in mind there can be crazy crit rng)

    Proteus is around 60k

    Ultane is around 40k

    It has terrible AoE dmg.

    Some fights like Goloch can be harsh to this specs numbers and the reason for that is because of timing your burst with the ground aoe buff. Fights such as Eggs its better to use a 58/18 variant so that you stay max range from bile. With regards to its AoE and using the Twins in IG as an example, its a case where having your shamans or harbchons etc deal with the aoe of the small adds while you focus on boss, your numbers wont look as good but the contribution of being able to out dps a shaman ST it still legit.

    This spec was pretty obvious I bet lots of people came up with it on their own I wasn't using IB though.

    Why are you taking 2% Str over 2% AP and Weapon Contribution? Also I'd rather get 5/5 Long Range Training over 2% damage on one dot skill.

    its pretty obvious why the points are allocated that way. why dont you know that? its also pretty obvious why to use icy.

    I don't seem to get nearly the results from this build than paragon. Even 61 Tempest seems to be equal to this. Unless I really had some bad RNG over the 3 parses I did.

    sounds like bad crit rng then. you will need living energy up in order to parse the spec without energy issues.

    You know what...I take it back. At least for me this spec is lower than 61 Tempest by about 800 dps.

    Although your right about the energy. I'll redo the parses with living energy.

    Why not...

    cast arc
    cast focus fire
    cast Double Pulse
    cast Charged pulse
    cast flamespear
    cast Electricity Blast


    At that point in the rotation you spam until you hit 3 ap. This way you also don't accidentally cast another ability before DP (not sure how you would, but meh.)

    theres a few ways to do the rotation, in the end its all the same. the reason for starting off with LT is to give your raid a few seconds of leeway time at intial pull before they start throwing down lava fields orchestras etc.so that your first burst will go off when one of those buffs it put up.

    Living Energy did the trick. Over 61 Tempest by about 1k. Still know where close to 61 Paragon though.

    ya its why i said sustained. there are fights where using a 61 para or 61 tempest will be better hands down.
