General Tips

  1. Cast off cooldown.
  2. Cast off cooldown, but it is lower priority than other skills.
  3. Use extra charges of to fill in gaps where you don't have time for a full auto chain - make sure not to let it reach three stacks!
  4. In the Radiance rotation, use off cooldown, as it won't line up neatly with the loop as it does in the Virtues rotation.

I run virtues over zeal and i found the build kinda stupid, you really have tons of survability while keeping decent dps because you have very few down time: you can dps constantly thanks to the fact that you never have to dodge or move. I haven't tested numbers and i know it's behind carries like weaver but it allows you to dps in most situations where your team is forced to stop dps.
