[Ret-PvE] Skill Rotation in 3.1

Postby Baelor » Mon Mar 30, 2009 1:51 pm

With all the changes and the back-and-forth at EJ, I'm not sure what should be top priority now.

With Judgement taking a big hit in damage and Crusader Strike now proccing RV, my gut says the following:
CS > J > Cons > DS > Exo

My brain says otherwise:
J > (HoW) > Cons > CS > DS > Exo

And I have no idea where to stick HoW in the 1st one.

Talk to me, people. As of the current PTR build, what are we looking at for priorities, both >20% and <20%.

I'm in the process of updating the 3.0 FAQ for 3.1, the recommended priority listing is getting a facelift based on these conclusions.

one thing to consider is the increase in non judgement seal damage and how that plays with DS. I could see DS moving up in priority because of that and go for something along the lines of
CS>J>(HoW)>DS>Cons>Exo

However, DS also is hurt relative to Cons because of the RV nerf. Preliminary numbers I've seen are that it's a wash and Cons is still slightly ahead, but I wouldn't put a lot of stock in that just yet.

Judgment is a lot less important from a dps standpoint due to the shift of damage to the seal. Crusader Strike is much better now and it was third in priority before. I could easily see consecrate > CS > DS > Judgment, at least to start, since Judgement will restore all that mana anyway,

According to rawr, this is optimal (using 4pc t7):
CS > HoW > Judge > DS > Cons > Exo
    cs - 6.48 s
    judge - 7.59 s
    cons - 11.18 s
    exo - 16.75 s
    ds - 11.17 s
    how - 6 s (for last 20%)
And according to posters it's still optimal after 4pc t7 is broken, but it doesn't beat other rotations as much:
    Crusader Strike 6.29
    Judgement 8.56
    Consecration 11.41
    Exorcism 17.12
    Divine Storm 11.40
    Hammer of Wrath 6.16
