How to deal with combat 4 set god procs?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

 

I have a few questions about how to go about the combat 4 set procs. I'm currently ilvl 691 and have been doing well as combat, but I feel like there is more to the 4 set.

 

It happens quite often that I get 3-5 4set procs in a row, which inevitably will cause me to energy cap. I play with Anticipation to handle my insight level better. 

 

Situation 1: I'm at 5 CPs and 5 Anticipation stacks, advanced into stage 3 shallow insight, I cast eviscerate and proc the 4 set so I am back at the same amount of CPs and anticipation stacks, however now my energy is close to capping / capped and my next eviscerate will surely waste energy. 

 

Do I cast sinister strike, and waste energy and potential 2 combo points to advance to moderate insight, or do I eviscerate until I'm able to cast sinister strike again to dump some energy?

 

 

Situation 2: I have 5 CPs, 3 anticipation stacks, and sitting at level 3 moderate insight. I sinister strike to gain deep insight, proc the extra combo point, and now have full CPs, and full anticipation stacks. Killing spree has 20sec left on cd, I hit eviscerate twice, proc 4 set each time, so now KS came off CD, I still have all my CPs and all anticipation stacks AND I'm energy capped. Do I killing spree despite being energy capped, or do I eviscerate as often as possible, and then hit killing spree? what if the next 2 eviscerates proc the 4 set too?

 

I can't count on god procs, but if it happens, that would be 40 seconds I could shave off my next killing spree cd.

 

it just seems like so much energy goes to waste. 

 

thoughts? I really appreciate any feedback and answers.

1) Evis. The damage is higher, and a small bit of wasted energy isn't the end of the world so long as your gcd's are full. 

 

2) Evis twice, KS, then deal with procs. Delaying KS is worse than capping energy, and saving any procs for after the cast allows for immediate reduced cooldown.

 

The only exception to the second one would be if there's some kind of boss mechanic that makes it a bad idea to KS at that time, but this is always a rule

Thanks for the reply Carrn

 

I have another question regarding situation 1: what If I'm at level 3 of moderate insight instead of shallow? Would that one sinister strike to push into deep insight  be a dps gain since I will get 2 guaranteed eviscerates with a higher dmg buff off? If its a dps loss, is it dramatic? 

 

very much appreciate your time to look over this!

Going up an Insight level will almost always be a dps increase, even at the loss of a cp or two.

      So i heard about primal ancients, and i m kinda desperate to get it. Why? It can make my Demon Hunter even powerful then he is now (I deal about 35m damage) So how do you get them? I know how though. Get in a GR 70 and do it Solo, but how do you do it actually? How much do you need to farm this for? A week? A month? A YEAR? The point is, i want primal ancients, and have NO IDEA how to farm them :// so... i need a bit of help for farming :))

      Hey Everyone, 
      So i play a Demon Hunter Lvl 120 with iLVL 464.
      My DPS in dungeons is just so low compared to everyone else and i dont know why. I was in a M8+ earlier and the ilvl 450 Tank was doing more DPS than I was. 
      Any tips? Check out my gear/character, i think its all setup right. I went through the Icy Veins Demon Hunter guide and stat priority etc... Got a rotation, but something isnt right. Im always last on DPS even with 440 ilvl players in the group.
       
      Thanks for reading!

      I recently started working toward my cape on my Balance Druid.  Last night while doing my vision beginning quest line to get my cloak, my partner noticed small frogs leaping into battle during our fights.  I searched my gear and looked at my setup, skills, essences, etc., to see if I could find anything saying "small frogs leap into battle" or something similar, but was unable to find anything to explain this oddity.
      Does anyone have any idea where these frogs are coming from?  Is it a hidden part of my skills or based upon race being used?  Any help to explain this oddity would be appreciated.
      Thanks in advance.

      Okay so between Nelf and Human rogue my questions are this
      Doesn't the weapon skill see a diminishing return?
      Is the dps difference actually there?
      Also shadowmeld vs perception: I don't understand why shadowmeld isn't considered to be the better choice?
      Reasoning being that a nelf should get the jump on another rogue first regardless, because of the better stealth..that is a passive. Also wouldn't the shadowmeld be better in a raid setting for sap?
      I understand that perception is active for 20 seconds but it has a cool down, and is also on the same faction?
