Icy-veins arcane rotation error

3 posts in this topic

On your page you say NOT to clear stacks with arcane barrage before evocation. When evocation finishes or is otherwise stopped your stacks are reset automatically. So it's better to clear the stacks with a full damage Barrage instead of no damage with just evocating.

My personal play style is also to extend the burn phase by using arcane missiles when they proc to extend the burn phase. This seems to produce higher dps than to ignore procs and just burn mana. Once you get below about 50% mana stop using the procs so you can have a better conserve phase. Barrage around 35-40% mana then evocate. Also, the conserve phase is more powerful when only using arcane missles at 4 stacks, not 3. You can maintain 90% mana during this time doing that.

You can time your burn phase and it lasts close to 30 seconds with avg procs. You can start burning again as soon as your CDs are ready and evocation will be up again right behind them.

Your evocation will take longer time to bring you up to 100%, same in the situation if you go down to 30-40% mana in your burn phase. That way you'll get a bigger gab in your rotation, which pretty sucks imo.

That's totally right. I guess it's just not clear enough in the guide.

 

 

Also, the conserve phase is more powerful when only using arcane missles at 4 stacks, not 3. You can maintain 90% mana during this time doing that.

If you do that, you could lose a proc of missiles and if you've got the 4p T-Set that's really bad.

You realize evocation scales with arcane charges, right? So if you clear your stacks, evocation becomes basically useless...
