Has anyone other than myself tried messing around with a build such as this?
Ive found it to be a middle ground between the somewhat simplistic 51/9/6, and the sometimes annoying 51/13/2. With this spec, you need to monitor 2 OGCD abilities, FB and EB, as well as the timing of Disruptive Strike, to maximize AP usage.
This build works best using the champ crystal, along with the following macros.
#show Disruptive Strike
cast Disruptive Strike
cast Power Strike
Overall I keep 5 buttons on my hotbar for ST.
#show Fiery Burst
cast Fiery Burst
cast Earth Burst
cast Punishing Blow
The builder macro (1), finisher macro (2), Power Strike (3), Cornered Beast (4), Earth Burst (5).
The one thing you do need to watch for is when Disruptive is about to become available, so you do not end up using it with 2 AP, effectively wasting one. This is the only time I hit the independent Power Strike (3).
For a rotation... honestly there isnt too much in the way of a rotation, which I find to be the beauty of this spec.
Instead this works off of more of a priority system. One thing to note is that I have Scald in the build, but no IB in the finisher macro. I have often found that IB will inevitably cause a bit of lag, as the game waits for it be available, which disrupts the flow of the spec.
So finisher priority order:
FB + PS
EB + PS
Now once you try playing this spec using the priority order, you'll notice that there isnt much in the way of a "rotation". One does appear after a while, but it is flexible enough that going a little out of order will not cause your dps to plummet. Instead, this spec allows you to play aggressively, building up 3 AP as quickly as you can, and redirecting them into a hard hitting finisher, without having to watch too many timers and icons.
Now I will admit, this will likely not parse as high as 51/13/2 in a raid setting, in the hands of someone who has mastered the rotation. However this WILL parse pretty close, and the flexible rotation allows the player to pay more attention to mechanics than a complex rotation.
