    Default Frequently Asked Coercer Questions (FACQ!)

    To help the coercer community better understand coercer workings and limitations (and also maybe to cut down on tells and organize topics), I decided to make a few posts regarding frequently asked questions. Basically, this is to help the newer coercers; for veteran coercers, these should be rehashed discussions.

    Yeah, I'm trying to do one a week, although I'm already behind. Writing a complete guide is a bit of a pain. Short answers are easy, but for some of the parts I realized I needed more data to back up my claims, and that just takes extra time.

    Updated with part 3 earlier than expected. I originally planned it to be a bit longer, but I decided not to do multiple examples. Instead, the basic example works for anyone up to 20% reuse. I also included more numbers in the appendix for people to work it out on their own.

    Some of those numbers may be used for the gear analysis section expected next, but not in any great detail.

    Updated with Part 4 yesterday. I was going to do a section on ACT triggers and such next, but I think it's more of a personal thing (like your UI choice) that just helps me keep track of stuff (immunities and recast timers) more than a necessary article that would help everyone.

    If I work up the motivation, I'll write an article about soloing. But, I think most coercers probably solo as well as I do. If anyone else has some questions they think of, be they short or long, feel free to ask.

    All articles are now updated for post-GU45 coercer mechanics, at least to a satisfactory level for me. Hopefully this all helps out.

    I'll keep fine-tuning the articles, especially 3 and 4, though, so don't be surprised if you suddenly see tiny numerical changes here and there.
