    Quick help with Ret Opener

    Curious about the best burst opener for Ret.
    I have 4-set, ring, and archy trinket.

    when using Seraphim+ES, what should the opener look like?
    Reasoning being that 4-set makes you do most damage 10-seconds into AW, Seraphim requires 5 holy power, and the archy trinket takes 3 hits of CS to do max damage.
    Just seems conflicting with the "ring on pull burst" that everyone does. And not 100% sure when to use ES during that.

    Thanks

    I usually do
    Judg, CS, ES, AW, HoW, CS, HoW , Sera, CS
    This is for Fel Lord and like this im also able to get 3 stacks of Focus of Vengeance before ES does its last tick.

    Using Zakuun as an example since he's patchwerk.

    Pot @ 0.5
    Execution sentence
    Avenging wrath, arcane torrent(belf), Hammer of Wrath
    CS
    HoW
    CS, Seraphim
    (Ring is usually at 11 to 9 seconds left)
    HOW (8)
    CS (7)
    HOW (6)
    TV (5)
    HOW (4)
    CS (3)
    HOW (2)
    TV(1)
    <ring explodes>

    Afterwards, just don't use seraphim until you use your second charge of wings (1min mark) and every 30 seconds afterwards. It should realign with ring that way,
    Do keep in mind I have about 16% haste and we tend to lust on pull.
    I don't really watch my execution sentence dot but I'd guess it hit about a second or two after my third CS
