    Default [2.8] [PVE] 61 Paragon 10 Riftblade 5 Tempest

    Intro
    I have always been a fan of Paragon with Riftblade off soul, but I never bothered to post a guide since we had warpest. That now changed, 61 paragon is back on top and riftblade off soul is the best if played right. This guide will not cover the basics of Paragon nor will it cover 61 Para/8Champ/7Temp since both of those have been covered very well by other guides. For abbreviations look at the bottom of this post.

    Build
    Clicky
    No fiery Burst because I can't find the power to allow for a rotation that would pull 1/2 Surging ahead of 2/2 Surging.

    Rotation
    Spoiler!


    Or clicky if you are like me and prefer this layout.
    Interrupt Flurry after getting 1 Attack Point. Replace it with a Setting Moon if you will need Flurry for a disconnect.
    The theoretical 14s blocks will turn into 15s blocks minimum because of cooldowns although I never find myself having to wait much for cooldowns thanks to of ability lag. If you do decide to use theoretical 15s blocks you will be delaying Alacrity too much and it will eventually desync with raid cooldowns.

    Macros
    As always adjust any macro to your personal preference
    Spoiler!


    Power management
    If you do the standard rotation you should not have issues with power. However, in rare cases you might starve in a raid if you have too many of the factors that will cost you power.

    Ways to lose power:
    -No Living Energy/Anthem of Fervor/Marshaled Favor
    -Bard/Oracle not using their Verse of Joy/Resuscitating Chant directly off cooldown
    -oGCD utility skills that cost power. These can be: Flinching Strike, Fleet of Foot, Sweeping Blades, Grasping the Horizon, Shield of Will (I am not trying to convince you to not use these)
    -SM>RW>IB to delay Shifting Blades
    -Bad RNG on Surging Energy procs
    -SP>SP>SP>IB during disconnects

    Ways to gain power:
    -Get rid of the IB in TQ>IB>CF>AL>RH
    -Replace 3x Builder>Follow up>IB with 2x Builder>Follow up>Reaping Harvest
    -Replace 2x Builder>Follow up> IB with Flurry(full channel)>Reaping Harvest

    DPS
    Clicky for spreadsheet dps.
    I will add a PTS test gear parse once it stops lagging so much.

    Notes
    Thanks to Existance for letting me use his bard and thanks to Darkranger for the spreadsheet.
    If you have any feedback or questions please let me know by posting a reply in this thread, PM'ing me on the forums or contacting me in-game (scurch@gelidra).

    1/2 Surging works for Maelforge and having fiery burst there is pretty nice aswell during dark cabal. Tempest is probably better there though. Anyway, nice guide, looks good to me.

    I forgot they fixed this awhile back.

    Cheers for the correction.

    Why is Final Blessing in the macro but not in the rotation?

    the ability lag is so severe atm that i dont even need to use flurry to line up the rotation (it ends up pushing sb). i really wish trion would address this.

    it will trigger in place of RW if the target is under 30%

    What I hate is how random the amount of ability lag is. One night you will be fine the other night will be horrendous. We just have to adjust each night.

    I'm sorry for asking but ...

    What is the effect of:
    SM>OtS>SB
    TQ>IB
    CF>AL>RH

    IB with only one Attack Point.

    Why not, as long as you have the power for it it is free dps.
    And there is no need to be sorry for asking
