    You dont need to time auto attacks as a caster.

    Even though the biggest dps for a coercer right now is auto-attack?

    Yes, caster auto and melee auto do not work the same way. Caster auto will still go off.

    The big DPS comes from /setautoattackmode 1 though for both chanter classes, and that does delay from casting, whatever class you're playing.

    As a general rule of thumb, I wouldn't stop casting to time auto. However, if I was at end of an autoattack cycle, I would use a short CA or something instead of a spell with a long ass casting time. Especially if stacked on AE auto, got a lot of mobs in melee range, and PoM and/or VC are up.

    Conversely, if I was low on AE auto, had a big encounter in front of me and had ET or Curse running in group, I would use a long cast encounter spell even if it delayed my auto.

    So it's somewhat situational.

    I've never stopped my cast cycle for auto and my melee numbers are just fine.

    Yeah I didn't disagree on not trying too hard to time autoattack, but the mechanism description wasn't quite correct. Spell autoattack does not get delayed, while old school melee autoattack does, regardless of what your wielding and what class you are.

    In the end, you need to compare a short delay to your autoattack against another, probably longer delay not casting shit (how much either one would affect your parse over a minute, and including procs).

    Question... A lot of the INT/WIS gear have procs for "On a critical healing spell...". Do power regens count as "heals" or is it just HP's? Thanks in advance!
