I do see one problem. I hit judgement at 231 seconds and then don't hit it again until 258. That's 7 seconds of no thunderjudge. You could delay the Hammer of Wrath until the next judgement and still get the same total damage done, at least for this mock scenerio. That would keep full thunderjudge uptime.

:o wow. the perfect world.. here is my rotation.

1234123412341234213421434211234213412341232141234213412341234

that is the rotation and if you apply it to my key bindings it strangly spells out a sentance.

Not entirely bad, imo. I say that for two reasons:

1) I have my keys ordered in such a way so that I can start my rotation easily without thinking about it (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). After that, I could spam those keys and keep up the basic rotation without any additional thought.

2) Every bit of attention you pay to your rotation is that much more attention that isn't being applied to the fight. The opposite holds true as well. Ideally you would find a balance, but it would be a shifting target.


That said, I'm trying to lock the rotation into my mind such that I don't have to think about it too much. Going back to point 2, I hope that by giving my rotation attention outside of combat, I'll be more prepared to give my attention to the fight during combat.

I seem to be one of the few people in existence with a 4321 setup, or the intentions of running one. It's my left hand, so it feels more natural starting with my index finger and working towards the pinky. I've tried rearranging it several times, but I'm used to this. Not going to change it now, except I have to find a spot for ShoR at 75.

My rotation is ascending, not descending like yours, but I do have my spam key (Holy Shield) set to 4, because it's convenient to my index finger.

I've set my "spam" key to 'e'. Much closer to the natural wasd than 4

I use a zMerc, so all of my number keys are in a slight curve above my movement keys. It took about a week to get used to, now I feel like I'm naked without it. And no, I don't mean pantsless tanking.

I have two sets of keybindings, one near WASD and one near the arrow keys. The result is that my entire keyboard is bound to something.

Also, 2CTRL253CTRL1CTRL2235CTRL2CTRL13 just doesn't have the same ring to it.
