Confused about...

7 posts in this topic

hi guys, my name is ralf and i'm from germany so please excuse my bad english.

i'm a bit confused. i've been watching azortahrions videos on youtube. in his mm guide is written:

"Your "rotation" will tend to look somthing like....

Sidewinders > Aimed Shot > Marked Shot > Aimed Shot until Vularable expires..."

But when i see him playing he always does: Sidewinders > Marked Shot > Aimed Shot Aimed Shot....

is there something i do not understand?

It is normal to go for Sidewinders > Marked Shot > Aimed Shot > Aimed Shot during Trueshot. Are you sure that's not what he's doing?

But not during opener (while Trueshot is active):

  1. Just before the encounter starts, use your Potion of Deadly Grace Icon Potion of Deadly Grace.
  2. Precast Icon Windburst 1.5 seconds before the encounter starts.
  3. Cast A Murder of Crows Icon A Murder of Crows if you have chosen this talent.
  4. Activate Trueshot Icon Trueshot.
  5. Cast Sidewinders Icon Sidewinders.
  6. Cast Barrage Icon Barrage if you have chosen this talent and Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust was used off the pull. Otherwise save till the last moment of Trueshot Icon Trueshot (to benefit from the cast time reduction right before it expires).
  7. Cast Marked Shot Icon Marked Shot.
  8. Cast Aimed Shot Icon Aimed Shot until you are below ~80 focus.
  9. Cast Sidewinders Icon Sidewinders.
  10. Cast Marked Shot Icon Marked Shot.
  11. Proceed with your normal rotation, but when Trueshot is about to expire, you should Sidewinders again early to cast a 4th Marked Shot within its duration. A 4th Marked Shot is only possible with Bloodlust up from the beginning of the fight.

As for as I know (I'm probably wrong), there are two ways to manage Marked shot procs.

- Using them directly after SW 

- Waiting last vunerable second (usually without buff after 2 AS) 

From my experience this has little to none impact on dps but I tend to prefer the 2nd one because it allow less time where I found myself with SW in CD and no vunerable on target, except for opener/BL

IMO: What i noticed playing as a MM, sometimes you are focus capped when you cast SW, so you cast MS right after to use a little focus so it can start filling again while you are casting AiS. If you go the other way, you will stay all the AiS cast time with full focus, wasting our natural focus regen.

 

Sorry my english.
