Rest of the Rotation

After the opener, your basic loop is as follows:

  2. or - these should alternate between loops
  3. , and (if available)
  4. Weapon Swap Weapon Swap (or stow kit)
  5. Repeat

  • If you are using , use it instead of in the opener, then use one second after the final pulse of . Make sure never to have these two skills overlap - this is to avoid the internal cooldown from .
  • Try to keep an eye on your mech, as it is a major source of Alacrity Alacrity thanks to . If it ends up more than 600 units from the stack, don't hesitate to use to force it to the correct location.

Good damage, permanent boon uptime. The rotation is easy enough. The hardest part is managing your mech. Other than that it's a great build I've been using in Raids since release.
