Jab (with power strikes, a combination of two SCK's and jabs without)
Bok / RJW
And then of course through the course of the encounter...
PB and picking up GotO stacks as needed. EB on cooldown / when needed. Keep up active mitigation.
The early guard allows quick mitigation allowing you to put up your Shuffle without taking unnecessary damage early as well as allow you to wait for using your first PB. Nor would I say that getting orbs should be an aspect of a rotation. They are a dynamic that we have to manage, but not rotationally. They should be used as they are needed. Same thing with PB.
