In the 'Gear and Best in Slot' section, is it on purpose, that under 3.4. Benthic Waist you name a leather item (Fathomstalker Waistband)?

Every character profile is different, if you have very little critical strike, it will eventually simulate higher for your to use crit enchants and gems, because stats are so close together that once you have to little of something it will gain more value to get a bit more of that stat. This is exactly why we recommend to simulate your own enchants and gems. Another reason is that once you run Expurgation azerite traits, critical strike will simulate higher than other stats.

In no case stats matter that much that you could lose the described amount of damage. You need to do something differently from before, or are you perhaps testing it differently?.

I apologize if this is addressed in comments or the guide, I personally couldn't find it if it was.  Should I delay Templar's Verdict, or any holy power spender, if the holy damage buff from judgement isn't present on the target?

Hey!

The opening rotation for inquisition + wake of ashes (5.1.3) says second spell should be Judgment - shouldn't that be crusader strike (at least with Execution Sentence)?

The way it's written the 25% increase from Judgment enhances Execution Sentence while using it afterwards on the first Templar's Verdict would have those 25% + the 20% from Execution Sentence - which would result in more damage, no?

So I'd say: 

(1. Prepot)

2. Blade of Justice

3. Crusader Strike

4. Inquisition

5. Avenging Wrath

6. Wake of Ashes

7. Execution Sentence

8. Judgment

9. Templar's Verdict

 

Or is there something i missed?

You should never delay Holy Power spenders for Judgement unlike we kinda did in Legion with the old mastery.

Getting Judgement on cd asap is more important than moving the Judgement dmg amp towards the ES buffed TV.

I see that Bloodmallet has top essence combinations while using 2, but not 3. Whats the top single target essence combination for all 3? Anyone know? My guess would be Condensed > Vision > Flame. But who knows.

Flame and Strife Essences Rank 3's are both really good options as 3. Essence for single-target.

Hey there

got a question about our essences

why does vision stomp the dps rank even in hectic add cleave but azerite beam is recommended

is it just because we can time the cd use but not the randomish nature of vision ?

thanks

nice guide btw :)

Exactly. The major effect of the Vision Essence is highly random, but most times cleave damage situations require on demand burst damage. Additionally being able to have 2 cds (beam & wings), which dont benefit from each other (you never stack them because beam doesnt benefit from wings) means you are more flexible in how you can to deal damage. You can chain them one after another or just use one when you see the raid/party also use cds and you can keep the other one for the next time (think of all those times you pop wings and 3 seconds later everything you wanted to cleave is already dead).

The most important part of Vision for cleave is the minor effect and you still use that while using beam as major Essence.

Keep in mind that in raids you can encounter situations where the cdr on wings from Vision minor might be unnecessary, because the time between the add spawns might be long enough to be just fine with the default cd.
