    Not just for timing auto attacks, but for a bunch of other small stuff as well. More attacks means more triggers of damage shields like on Gen`Ra, higher chance that a stifle or stun will interfere with your auto attack, or having to switch targets, etc.
    It adds up to more than you think in the long run, between VC, Stampede, PoM, and a few other smaller ones. The difference is greater the more mobs you're fighting so on single target fights, it might only be 1-2 extra procs, but on aoe fights, it's significantly more. Either way though, more is more.

    If people can't dispel the Warcouncil, you're going to be out of power no matter what delay you use. Any stun or daze you aren't immune to is still going to affect you. Switching targets just comes right back to timing autoattacks. If your autoattack is about to go off, let it go off and then switch targets.

    I agree that using 6s delays gives you more room for error when timing autoattack but I do not agree that it makes any difference if you can time autoattacks effectively with 4s weapons. If you can time autoattacks effectively, 4s weapons have the advantage of procs.

    With new 100% cast/recovery/reuse you will be able to do 4 casts between autos definitely with 6 sec, so it will be no difference between 4 and 6 sec. But will you able to do 3 casts with 4 sec to take away 6 sec, that's the question? And 6 sec is more lag free for dirge to write a VC.
