The goal of the rotation is to maximize your casts at max malice to maximize DPS. In order to do this you need to carefully line up your skills that grant access to stealth to ensure their cooldowns aren't wasted.

- After ~100 seconds, there will be a period of ~10 seconds where you won't have any stealth skills available. If the boss will phase within 10 seconds, you could switch to Dagger/Dagger or Pistol/Pistol on your second weapon set to squeeze in some extra damage.
