    Making sense of the simcraft priority list.

    Whilst browsing through simcraft today I found this line;

    actions+=/stop_moving,health_percentage<=25,if=cooldown.shadow_word_death.remains>=0.2|dot.vampiric_ touch.remains<cast_time+2.5

    Can't quite work out what it's saying.
    From what I can gather it's saying; if the boss is under 25% health, SW: D is on CD and VT has less than it's cast time + 2.5sec then... stop moving?

    why stop moving? seems odd.


    the whole list;

    actions+=/volcanic_potion,if=!in_combatactions+=/volcanic_potion,if=buff.bloodlust.react|target.time_to_die<=40
    actions+=/mind_blast
    actions+=/shadow_word_pain,if=(!ticking|dot.shadow_word_pain.remains<gcd+0.5)&miss_react
    actions+=/devouring_plague,if=(!ticking|dot.devouring_plague.remains<gcd+1.0)&miss_react
    actions+=/stop_moving,health_percentage<=25,if=cooldown.shadow_word_death.remains>=0.2|dot.vampiric_ touch.remains<cast_time+2.5
    actions+=/vampiric_touch,if=(!ticking|dot.vampiric_touch.remains<cast_time+2.5)&miss_react
    actions+=/archangel,if=buff.dark_evangelism.stack>=5&dot.vampiric_touch.remains>5&dot.devouring_plag ue.remains>5
    actions+=/start_moving,health_percentage<=25,if=cooldown.shadow_word_death.remains<=0.1
    actions+=/shadow_word_death,health_percentage<=25
    actions+=/shadow_fiend
    actions+=/shadow_word_death,if=mana_pct<10
    actions+=/mind_flay
    actions+=/shadow_word_death,moving=1
    actions+=/devouring_plague,moving=1,if=mana_pct>10
    actions+=/dispersion

    Moving while casting instants (SWD under 25%) is a dps increase. This is why there is a /start_moving line. You need a /stop_moving line with it.

    I am unsure about the vampiric_touch condition however. It'll stop moving in the middle of doing the 2 SWD to recast VT. But it won't do it for mind blast.

    Also, why does it favour SW: D over DP when moving above 10% mana?

    actions+=/shadow_word_death,if=mana_pct<10 - means it will prio sw: death when mana is less than 10 percent.


    actions+=/devouring_plague,moving=1,if=mana_pct>10 - means it will prio devouring plague when mana is above ten percent (if moving).

    actions+=/shadow_word_death,moving=1

    comes ahead of

    actions+=/devouring_plague,moving=1,if=mana_pct>10

    it seems to prioritise SW: D under 10% mana above mindflay
    but above 10% mana it still favours SW: D over DP, but not above mindflay when not moving.

    Seems like a mistake. Those two lines should be interchanged. Just did a quick test, and indeed swapping them is a DPS increase when there is movement.
