Resource Management & Rotation

  • Bound Armaments, Barbed Trap, BS, Hurricane, Deadly cloak, BS, Crystal Weapons, Bound Armaments, Crystal Weapons x3, Bound Armaments, Crystal Weapons x3, BS Deadly Cloak…
  • Prioritize hitting Bound Armaments every 4th light attack, this is going to net the most damage. Bound Armaments will hit harder than any single DoT tic.
  • Hurricane should never be over cast. Hurricane deals higher damage on the later tics, so we want to make sure that this ability is running out.
  • At no point should you activate pets for damage.
  • Because we are using BRP DW we need to make sure to have a high uptime on Deadly Cloak.
  • Aim for 100% uptime on Barbed Trap, this will ensure we are getting the most out of our critical strikes.
  • Look to cast your ultimate on cooldown during each boss fight, unless you should be saving your ult, cast it!
  • Activate your potions on cooldown, this will ensure you have zero sustain issues, and you will have high uptimes on your buffs!

Tips & Misc.

  • Be sure not to re-apply hurricane too early, it does most damage near the end of its effect.
  • If you are still struggling with sustain you can change one of your jewelry enchants to Stam Recovery.
