Seal twisting for aoe: how to fit it in

Postby Squishums » Wed Sep 23, 2009 2:24 am

For 3 mobs over a long period of time, seal twisting (keeping SOV dot on but mostly using command) has got to be significantly more dmg than using command alone.

But how to fit it in?

*EDIT* wow ok my picture didnt work, you may still get the idea though...the point was that you switch to SOV immediately before HOR then back to command immediately after, and you do this on every 1 of 2 HORs

Delaying the pattern

|--------SOV----------||--SOC---||SOV||--SOC--||SOV||--SOC--|
6969696...etc HOR 9696969 HOR 9696969 HOR 969696.......

vs

Replacing an unplesant amount of the "9s"

|--------SOV----------||--SOC---||SOV||--SOC--||SOV||--SOC--|
6969696...etc HOR 69696 HOR 69696 HOR 69696.......

vs

Some kind of pattern where if the 9 is a judgement and maybe a holy shield you substitute and if its a consecrate you delay



Or is seal twisting even viable? I am eager to do anything other than the same old 969 nonesense, but dropping any of the normal abilities in my rotation would be rough.

Maybe just delaying the rotation and having glyph of consecrate would be the best AOE threat.

What are your thoughts and results from any testing?

In what situations you can tank multiple adds for extended periods of time so that it would make a noticeable difference? Pretty much only place I can think of is Anub hardmode.

Literally only your autoattack will proc SoC. Are you sure you want to trade a judgment/shor for...a proc that is intended to be used with high damage weapons?
I can't see extra 100 tps being generated from soc weaving, if any extra is generated at all.

Yeah I have to admit it might not be that useful other than for soloing.

But even just for soloing or the once in a million years in a raid it would be useful, I want to figure out how to do it best >.<.

Farming gear and 96969696969'ing is lame.

There's also the added detail that, with a full stack of sov, you'll do extra damage other than the ticks. It used to be lame like 10 or 12 damage, now it's on the hundreds.
