    Default RO/VC in solo/heroic content

    Thinking of bring back my dirge and was curious - heroic fights go so fast (especially trash), that an encounter doesnt even last as long as RO records. What is everyones stance on using RO in this scenario? On raids I obviously try and maximize my RO for the highest VS I possibly can get. But on heroic content is it worth paying attention to the RO? or do you just use it when its up?

    I usually run with tanks that pull alot, so its never an issue. If your tank is pulling 1-3 mobs at a time you wont get much for a recording. if you have to, ask the tank to pull more at a time when your going to charge vc. Also, since heroic shit dies so fast, i try to get a good vc for whatever named mobs i can. Use RO on a good trash pull, save VC for the names.

    Also if you dont already, cast gravitas on yourself before you hit VC, should knock off a good chunk of reuse.

    really? aren't most dirges forging into Spell Reuse? it's pretty easy to get 100% combined reuse, maximizing recast for Ro, Vc, Cadence, Echoing Howl, Luda's, Wail.

    Meh, Some do, some don't. Depending on where he is sitting gear wise, that might not be his priority at the moment. Havn't bothered searching the toon on EQ2u, so was more or less a general statement that could/could not apply to him.

    This could be dumb because my dirge is an alt that I recently started playing in raid. Why would you reforge into spell reuse speed before aoe auto? Just seems like with everything having adds and your auto attack being the majority of your dps it would make more sense.

    As with anything, it probably depends.

    I find I get more mileage out of combined reuse to about 60 or 70 percent, most of which is spell reuse, and the rest of any excess to abmod. Static AE auto is bit lower than I currently want it, around 40 and would prefer 50 or 60. At some point I will put an AE auto proc on something to swap in to give a much greater chance of high AE auto when the possibility of regular benefit presents itself.

    Right now, for me in COE EM, there seems to be less adds when it matters for it to matter. Part of it is content, part of that is raid rhythm. We aren't always a well oiled machine, so keeping the timing lined up doesn't always work out. So instead of aiming for a scenario of max on multi-mob/AE which certainly is ideal, I look toward the more likely and common scenario.. max on single target and hope for the best with multi/AE.

    The intent being to push the average instead of occasionally peaking, but routinely doing far less.

    OP: If it's up, use it.. with some discretion.

    There is no penalty for letting off a half charged vc off during trash, between bosses, solo, heroic, or epic.

    I try to pre-charge for the boss, so if there is roughly four or five minutes between bosses, and its available, I'll use it at will with the intent to precharge on the last set of adds before the boss.
