Posted on the official WoW forums a few days ago, still no help, so thought I'd ask here.
I have the majority of the combat rotation down, keep SnD Up, Rupture at 5 CP, and Eviscerate if both are up, etc. (CP rotation, the rest is simple, XD)
But I have a question in regards to this. I'll do a few scenarios.
1. SnD is at 5-6 seconds left, Rupture is at 13 seconds left. I have 5 combo points. Do I refresh SnD early, or use Eviscerate and refresh SnD with however many CP I can manage before it runs out?
2. SnD is at 5-6 seconds left, Rupture is at 5-6 seconds left. I have 5 combo points. Do I refresh Rupture early, SnD early then Rupture at next 5 CP, or use Eviscerate and refresh SnD > Rupture?
As in, what is the priority for re-applying, and is it detrimental to refresh either SnD or Rupture early? Or should I only Rupture/Evis at 5 CP and refresh SnD with however many I have left at the time of it about to drop off?
And one other thing, Shadowcraft tells me Elemental Force does ~500 more DPS per weapon than Windsong. How reliable is that? I've always been told Windsong is better, or is it because using slow/slow, EF pulls ahead?
And just one last side note: Upgrading my belt to the Shieldwall one or upgrading my Raid Finder Claw of Shek'zeer both come out to a 1000 dps increase on Shadowcraft. Is there any preference I should be going for there?
