    side infos
    Spoiler!


    -> WL is absolutely not the meme spec i was said to be in 2018. It can very well keep up with RB -and other classes.
    It can tank QF, T1, Azranel on 1.5-2m dps
    Beeing new yourself: WL is your go to when entering T1, able to run 800k+ independent of the Eternal.

    //After linking threat #17 from the other WL guide at least 30 times, i just copied and re-edited the infos in a separate and clean link now.

    There is nothing redeemable about Shadeborn. I tried many times to crack that nut and no dice.

    Runeshaper I spent a long time on and pre-buffs I actually had some decent results with. It can hold 1m but just barely. The issue is there's no off-soul that enhances it very well at all.

    You have to go 61 for ROID to get your instant cast block so you're very limited to start. Druid will give you some fluff procs and damage, Oracle some extra bolts, or sent for some extra damage. Inquis can work but SH isn't optimal because of the way it times with CD blocks.

    You'll also find, that while manageable, it's sort of a rooted spec PvE wise. You're dependent on GRoE to maintain your eternal buff which you need to stand in. The template is the same as wall of fire so there's some wiggle room, but for stuff like missile storm it's not a great limitation.

    Considering it does 1m DPS less than Inquisitor but requires the same attention to play, lacks mobility, and is about 500k less than shaman. It's better just to lay off as far as raid specs.

    PvP it can do well though with the teleports, instant cast blocks, and delayed heavy hitters.

    OG player - stopped playing for a few years, came back - hit 70 and spent the last 2 years just doing AH randomly. with the quarantine i got back into this and trying to rank up my eternal.

    Was running the "flamespear paragon" build and then switched the the "ezpz" build you list here. instantly gained around 120dps. in a raid group with curry I can maintain 380-410k dps on a colossi and have peaked at a 490K sustained for a 1:45 fight. Previously i was barely breaking 250k, usually low 200s.

    this is with ~3k crit, 2150 hit, and the 2392.9dps eternal. Very happy with this build and as I get the rest of my gear leveled up a bit, I'll give the main build/rotation a shot.

    maybe it's because i'm doing something wrong on RB spec. but got the first level 1H eternal and a 1H from TDez and i do a solid 200-300dps more in this build than RB. definitely support this build and it's the one i've been recommending to guildie warriors who are on purple oblivion blades.

    Default Macro useage

    When the opening is 6+3+4+5+2, does that mean go through all of 6 (hit #6 8 times), then all the way through #3 (3 key 12 times), etc for 4,5,2? Or, just one hit per each macro? Seems like when I'm alternating 1&2 there is always a message that says ' not ready ' or something like that.

    So the way the macros are designed here is that you just fire off a bunch of ogcd's along the way. (every macro looks huge but it's basically the same stuff slaped below your core attacks)
    In general you press the keybind with the macro for the ability shown in the icon.

    - #2 PT

    Loop:
    - #3 koth
    - now alternate #1 AQD and #2 PT and refresh #3 koth + #6 Breaking Blow
    - Use one #4 DS after every #3 Koth
    (to snapshot the crit buff)
    See each line as one gcd of 1.5sec - but let's say you are using AQD for one gcd, press the button a couple times for Icy Burst, Arterial Strike etc

    -> You could also say *press that button until the displayed ability fires off*

    #1 AQDs

    #show A Quick Death
    suppressmacrofailures - this line blocks the screen messege*
    cast a Quick Death - triggers a gcd
    cast Icy Burst - off global cooldown
    cast Arterial Strike
    cast Retaliation
    cast Backhand
    cast @self Power Manipulation
    cast Battlefield Medic

    cast Break Free
    cast Fading Light
    *And good find on the not ready messege. The *suppressmacrofailures* line was missing for AQD and is ment to suppress that little screen messege.

    Still didn't find a good way to display ability timings and gcd's for rotations :/
    Lemme think about how to make it more clear.

    Thumbs up

    OMFG!!!!! my old build is getting some respect. Built it because of the amount of damaging hit it would produce to proc AQD. Amazing amounts of dots, lots of hard hits= lots of fun in PVP.(with a spot healer is recomended in PVP due mainly being a melee spe though).

    also, when I import the kalert set, it says 'alert failed to add - item not found.

    Hmm worked on a fresh Na warri lately but lemme check on that.

    //Checked and it adds in the 4 Kalerts. They are english; make sure you copy the whole text in the box. Can't tell what's wrong exactly. If you keep having issues, please try to provide some screenshots etcpp

    What would you say is best for this build, 2H eternal or 1h planar+eternal?

    Thanks for that!
    I just crafted myself a simple sword for off hand, and I equipped 1H eternal (Finally got it on Friday! Yay!)
    Despite the loss of stats, DPS on dummy went from 600k with 2H to 700k.
    Impressive difference!
