    Default Help on Casting Order

    Been Gone for A bit now it seems that my casting order seems to be off. I know that this is gonna get rage but hopefully someone could help me out. I know that the casting order is off some how but not sure where to be optimized enough. I have been reading everyone else's help but it seems short.

    I am hoping that you do not mean that all of that is a macro, by having the word macro at the top...

    A debuff during VC or RO ? Seriously ?

    Cast order doesn't matter much, as long as you never delay an auto-atatck and follow the general order that any class uses :

    Debuffs -> Temp buffs -> DoTs -> (VC/RO) -> DDs

    You can optimize a little here and there (cast Scream of Death very early, pay attention to important buffs/debuffs from other classes, use average skills with short reuse enough to avoid using really crappy skills, etc...) but honestly, our skills are low and the difference between the worst skills and the best skills is much lower on a dirge than on most classes. Just press buttons between your autos in a half logical order and you'll parse well.

    I think this is why people ask questions like this. My logical order might be your, "omfg that's a stupid order". I have no way of determining what 2 ca's go best together and what 2 do not. It certainly isn't just the cast length. With 4s weapons delaying at 2.4s, I can only get really fast skills in between swings. Ones like Luda's or Jarol's I have to cast and wait for next round or else I clip auto.

    i'm new to dirging, but after a few weeks of raiding, here's what i'm starting to do:
    • cast Echoing Howl whenever it's up - i put 3 points in Echoing Power, so I want to build up that 22.5 groupwide CB bonus
    • i've decided to cast Cadence whenever it's up. right now Grand Finale is like 2% of my parse, so I don't want to lose a cycle just waiting for RO
    • grab RO whenever it's possible. preferably with Cadence up and running.
    • cast VC within 30-45s if possible, to start the next 2m Cool down as soon as I can. If there are multiple mobs coming up I'll wait.
    • i'll try to hold off casting VC until Echoing Howl, Darksong Spin, Banshee, and Jarol's Sorrowful Requiem are up if there are multiple mobs.
    • you really need to learn your fights in order to learn to cast RO without having a joust coming up. Drinal is lots of fun.
    • i need to learn to let Banshee finish - the termination damage just about doubles the DPS from banshee. at 10s recast and 16s duration, i keep screwing up.
    • i'm trying to hold Turnstyle for when i need the AoE blocker
    • i have to admit, i'm going to try to keep Rhythm Blade up all the time too. my accuracy is 18, no ST, and weapon skills were about 720 - and my to-hit on Drinal was like 76%. i swapped in 4 weapon skill adorns to help, and i think the extra 50 pts from RB will help too.
    i'm still playing with my rotation. i'd like to put my faster recast stuff up front, so they're available more often - Echoing Howl, Howl of Death, and Daro's Dull Blade; then go to Dots; Bump+Scream of Death; Fast casting things again...that sort of thing. still playing.
