    Default Casting Order: How to co-operate with VC

    I took right-side prestige, and have casting order like this:

    Mug, Thieving Essence, DoM, DU, Dispatch, Deb, Rake, Cornered, Dust, Sinister if I have, Sunder if I have, BlackJack and Stunning Blow to finish the DoM. Then I will use Thugs, BA, Bum Rush, Desperate, any other that refreshes.

    My problem is that with Dirge in my group, I nuked too fast, he finishes RO way after I finish DoM, and after he dish out VC I almost have no CA to cast in a 3-5 sec period(Rob...), I sense I have less VC proced then Assassins and BLs, and less then when I'm in left prestige. I asked bard why they start RO so late, they say they have debuff+buff to do at start...

    So, how do we do with bards? How can I modify my casting order to get some more VC proc? Will Thug proc VC? Also, do autoattack proc VC, will 4s proc more VC then 6s? Or just my reuse suck?

    I use 4.0s delay weapons and never have any issue with sitting there waiting for something to cast and my re-use is usually only around 60% in raids. Using 6.0s usually means you're casting an extra CA between auto attacks in comparrison to 4.0s and you'll run out quicker if you prioritize poorly.

    Thugs will not proc VC anymore (or Sunder for that matter) since GU 66. I'm 99% sure that auto-attack still does but it may just be the initial strike (Not your 14 subsequent multi-attacks).

    Also depends on the fight. If you know adds are coming and your bard has a VC charged up then you should save your blues. Between Barroom, Cornered and Blinding you can easily rack up the VC triggers on adds for massive damage. Even more so if you save your Double Up for such an occurance.

    Best thing to do is just communicate with your bard and get a feel for how often and when they use their RO / VC and adapt accordingly if it really matters to you.
