Usage

Rotation

The logic behind this rotation is to maximise Big Boomer uptime by Using the Explosions skills Electro-whirl and Throw Mine. The Mechs skills can be set to auto cast by pressing crl+mouse2 key on the skills.

Opener

  1. Throw Mine - this triggers Big Boomer for the rest of the opener and can be cast as you walk up to the boss.
  2. Thunderclap
  3. Electro-whirl
  4. Rocket Charge

Rotation concept Now use the skills as they come off cooldown with the following prioity

  1. Finish the Auto attack chain if you are at Negative Bash
  2. Electro-whirl
  3. Thunderclap
  4. Throw Mine
  5. Rocket Charge


CC

Use the following abilities to do Crowd Control (break a Defiance Bar).

  1. Thunderclap
  2. Throw Mine
  3. The Jade Mech will also passively do Crowd Control

In case of a large Defiance Bar delay Thunderclap and Rocket Charge. Use these skills in the order Thunderclap ->Rocket Charge to utilize the Lightning field from Thunderclap.

Excellent build - great for smashin and chillin. I am curious about Aim-Assisted Rocket though. Does it only proc on Electro-whirl finishers?
