Final Tests on Wild Changing Crit Tactic

•April 4, 2010 • 3 Comments

Well it turns out every DPS Meter I have tried has given me the same answers that they do not show the correct amount of Crit. What I did to further research this is use tons of spells on both Order and the Bloodied Combatants in Reikland and they both showed the same answers that the Crit Tactic Wild Changing is not very useful on a IFoC spell I would get around 3 Critical Hit’s through the cycle with the tactic and without the tactic so the answer still goes with slot something different. I wrote the tests on paper or I would place them online for you all to see hopefully one day we get a accurate DPS Meter that will show are Critical Hit’s.

This is a great gear setup for a well geared Magus that’s looking to Critically Hit the enemy to death.

Helm: Sovereign Barbute of the Daemonlord for the +3 Morale Per Second.

Shoulders: Sovereign Warpmantle of the Daemonlord for the 4% Reduction in being Critically Hit.

Chest: Darkpromise Nightrobe for the +3 AP Per Second.

Gloves: Sovereign Bracers of the Daemonlord for the +4 Magical Crit Chance.

Belt: Darkpromise Whipshash I just wear in order to get the 3 piece set bonus.

Boots: Darkpromise Daemonspurs for the +3% Magical Crit Chance.

Jewlery:The Reaper of the Ualatp Set 3 pieces for the +108 Magic Power.

Cape: Sovereign Voidcloak of the Daemonlord for the Magic power and to finish off the set bonus for the Crit Chance.

Reasoning: With both Set bonuses able to get both toughness and a total of +21% Magical Crit Chance.

Ranged Guide

Career Build and Tactics: Career Build Renown Build

Strategy Guide: Make sure to mix up this rotation a bit but I’m going to explain step by step on taking down Casters in a duel.

Step One: Make sure your pet is out before the duel it is a necessity during a duel.

Step Two: Once the fight begins you will want to start running towards the enemy depending on whether or not your using Daemonic Reach or Close Quarters you really want to mix it up to trick your opponent. Begin using your Withered Soul to increase your damage by 15%, then using Baleful Transmogrification and Glean Magic  to lower there Spirit Resistance. Make sure to mix up that cycle that way they don’t know what they are severing off themselves.

Step Three: Go ahead and use your Indigo Fire of Change wait until about 3 tics on it and they should be around 15-25% life start the next step.

Step Four: Start off this cycle by using Surging Violet Fire and continuing with a Surge of Insanity. After that either use another Indigo Fire of Change or a Surging Violet Fire.

Tip: Mix rotation up a bit and just get used to hitting those keys at the correct time and make sure to use your Aegis of Orange Fire as soon as you can get it off once your health gets low.

Tip: Make sure to stay as  close as you can if using Close Quarters this is basically a big DPS race, It’s really only a necessity to use Daemonic Reach if your opponent has more DPS then you then try to stay out of the range of his attacks and still be able to cast all your spells.

Melee Guide

Career Build and Tactics: Career Build Renown Build

Strategy Guide: Make sure to mix up this rotation a bit but I’m going to explain step by step on taking down Melee in a duel.

Step One: Make sure your pet is out before the duel it is a necessity during a duel and make sure to lay out a Dissolving Mist soon as the fight begins.

Step Two: Always make sure you use Withered Soul the 15% more damage really helps out on getting them down as fast as possible, you also want to use Baleful Transmogrification that extra tic of damage could be what you need to finish the enemy. Last but not least make sure you throw your Glean Magic in there somewhere the lower spirit resistance on them makes a big difference. Make sure when using these 3 DoTs to mix them up a bit, if you keep using the same rotation they will just keep severing off your Withered Soul DoT and it makes a big difference on your damage.

Step Three: Depending on how close they are to you by now is whether or not you want to use the Infernal Blast on them if they are already in melee range you want to make sure to go ahead and begin your Instability on them for that 3s Knockdown this is when you want to use your Indigo Fire of Change after they get back up and you finish your IFoC make sure to knock them back.

Step Four: After the knock back you will want to begin you killing blow rotation which includes the following Surge of Insanity try to base the usage of this spell on the spell graphics for there big damage or CC moves.  Another spell you want to stick in this KB rotation is Surging Violet Fire and then I just spam a few rend winds until IFoC cool down is up and then finish them off with that or another SVF.

Tip: Mix rotation up a bit and just get used to hitting those keys at the correct time and make sure to use your Aegis of Orange Fire as soon as you can get it off once your health gets low.
