Superior rotation?: WW with Drinking Horn Cover legendary.

6 posts in this topic

So i was lucky enough to get Drinking Horn Cover for my WW. 

 

I was playing around with it today and i noticed something. It seems you should get the Energizing Elixir talent. Reason being is that if you manage to pull off the rotation properly then you can actually be able to use Fist of Fury twice before the Storm, Earth and Fire clones expires. This makes it really good considering the artifact passives that affect FoF with and without SEaF.

 

Rotation

Currently, i'm seeing this rotation to be the most effective:

x2 Tiger Palm > Touch of Death > Storm, Earth and Fire > Fist of Fury > Strike of the Windlord > RSK Blacout Kick until FoF's off CD. (Make sure you have chi when that happens)

The idea is to increase the chi spent as much as possible in between cooldowns, while still making sure that the very millisecond it goes off cooldown you have 3 chi to spend on it.

 

Downside?

  • In order to make sure your SEaF are still up until the end of FoF, you can not use Whirling Dragon Punch during SEaF. 
  • AFAIK, you can't change talents to compensate for that.
  • Serenity doesn't work with the legendary and I have no theoretical number on Chi Orbit
  • You can't rely on combo strikes on every single hit as you need to burn chi fast by spamming Blackout kick

Question then is, does the downside far outweigh the upside, should i not prioritize double FoF?

Definitely would agree that Energizing is the way to go here.

FoF is a higher priority damage-wise than WDP, so I would say prio on double is worth it.

I'm gonna give you a followup question then. Is ignoring the mastery damage bonus just to dump enough chi to avoid SEaF from expiring worth it?

No, because of Hit Combo.  If you don't proc the mastery, you drop hit combo, which is a larger damage increase than SEF is.

I just got this legendary on my ww and was wondering how to optimize it now that SEF is fixed/buffed? Is it still like Rogmaw writes or is there another way?

With DHC, Whirling Dragon Punch is the go-to talent for up to 5+ targets, however, you don't play any differently than you would if you didn't have DHC.  The exception being if you aren't running Hit Combo AND have low mastery, where you are more free to double TP for chi or double BoK to dump chi.

      Hello, fellow Warlocks
      I recently received Odr, Shawl of the Ymirjar, which does "Enemies marked by your Havoc take 8% increased damage from your single target spells." Currently I've been running Channel Demonfire, but I am curious about Wreak Havoc. I know it's amazing for cleave, but would taking Wreak Havoc benefit more than demonfire, even if it is pure single target when having this legendary? I usually browse Icy Veins guides, and haven't seen a specific comment about this.
      Apolgies if this has been asked somewhere else already.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 8/10N NH 4/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review, make a character on our realm and inbox me, or hit me up on real ID (violentravi#1826).  Alternatively, if you are old school, please apply via our website:  http://www.adelante-guild.com
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hello hunters,
      i nees some help with the marksmanship rotation. I'm trying to follow the guide of azortharion
       
      In no-proc periods:  Arcane Shot until 95 Focus, then  Aimed Shot to not Focus cap and repeat. If  Windburst becomes available during one of these periods, use it immediately and generate focus with Arcane Shot afterwards. Then, towards the end of the  Vulnerable window, cast the 2 Aimed Shots with roughly 4 seconds remaining on  Vulnerable. When you get a proc: →  Marked Shot → Keep Cast  Arcane Shot once (twice with extremely high Haste) so that there is only ~4 seconds remaining on Vulnerable → 2x  Aimed Shots.  
      But i really have some diffcult. Usually i'm doing this:
      - If vulnerable is down: cast windurst if is up or marked shot -> 1x arcane shot -> 2x aimed shot
      But really, i never have enough focus to do this and a lot of time i can cast only 1 aimed shot.
       
      I dont understand.

      I will NOT be using BoS in 7.1.5...  why?
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=132459/perseverance-of-the-ebon-martyr
      Build:
      http://www.wowhead.com/talent-calc/death-knight/frost/cj7z
      Basically with the combination of Gathering Storm (extended RW) and fitting more Rime into that time period I'm hoping that my M+ hybrid spec will remain competitive and the sims thus far seem to support the theory.
      If you have the helm too, grats! and look forward to the major increase in it's power with Freezing Fog +30% and Tier 19 based around more Rime and more RP from Rime we should see many viable builds popping up on logs. **Stay with FP for now until you have T19 x 2 - see updated build link ^^
      Why not BoS and Hungering? ... well, I'm looking for big Rime crits and don't fancy the long CD to manage. I also want to remain powerful in M+ which should be the case with this build... I'm pretty sure I can become more useful with Winter is Coming + extended RW... stunning mobs for the whole of PoF uptime.
      Obliteration will be used to maximise rune spam for Gathering Storm.
      Lets hear your thoughts?

      hey guys i wanted to know if you guys can help me with my self made monk:  tempest rush build. this is my first time posting  but i really enjoy this build just need some help with tweeking it. this is how it is now:
      to start you need the full sunwukoset and the legendary daibo: balance, also you need the sweeping wind belt kyoshiro's soul to make this work a little
      further i am running with crudest boots for increased spirit regen and nemisis bracers becuase i dont know what else to use. rings i am also stuck with i just took the rings that had the best stats (dex, chc, chd) as far as gems go i have 3 max diamonds in my chest and 2 max emeralds in my pants i have 1 max amethyst in my helm for more life and ofc 1 max emerald in weopon . legendary gems i use are taeguk (for increased damage and toughness), gem of efficacious toxin for increased damage and redused damage taken. the thirt gem im not sure what to use so i wnet for mirnea teardrop of the starweaver for a bit of healing but im thinking bane of the trapped is way more effective.
      in the cube im running with vengefull wind for more stacks of sweeping wind, mantle of channeling for increased damage and toughnessand convention of elements for that bit of extra damage.
      skills:
      the main skill is tempest rush with the rune northern breeze cuz it reduce spirit cost and increase damage big time
      im using blinding flash for more damage, the other skills are pure for spirit regen and defense: epiphany with desertshroud for more toughness mystic ally with air ally for spirit regen (doubles cuz of crudest boots), sweeping wind for regen and defense ( second set bonus of sunwuko), mantra of healing with boon of insiration als o for spirit regen.
      the passives was kinda hard for me to choose so i went with: harmony cuz a monk cant survive without it exalted soul for more spirit regen, momentum for more damage becuase your always moving and determination also for more damage.
      this is how it kinda looks i left the rings open cuz i dont know wich one to use: http://www.d3planner.com/117539347
