I actually ended up losing out on a lot of damage because my other raid members were burning the oozes down too fast for me to Havoc every one :P
It is quite silly how much a dps difference it makes training your fellow dps to swap back to the boss once it hits 20%. I have simply given up on telling them to stop killing the adds and let me havoc/sb them all as its a overall raid dps increase to do so.
RAWR BLADESTORM.. RAWR FAN OF KNIVES
So now I just toggle on F&B and melt face lol
I guess it really is a hard sell to say "Lower your DPS because it increases mine "
Parsing doesn't really matter though in the end as long as boss dies without too much struggle IMHO. I used to parse all the time, but it requires perfect setups, and people to leave shit alone now, so its usually more hassle than it is worth.
Oh, and I think it goes without saying, but nice parse!

Quick question: you best way to use 4pc proc? Immolate?
ignore it and spam incinerate. Both 2 and 4pc are not worth refreshing immolate on their own (just 15% more embers and you could be overwriting a dot that has a legendary meta proc in it, thus generating *less* embers) and also CB doesn't benefit too much. Just be happy about your increased ember generation.
depends on the remaining time of the dot. If you can benefit from pandemic and the buff is not powered via trinket procs / LMG then refresh, otherwise I'd be reluctant to do so.
I'll give it a try. I don't know if i'll be able to notice any difference
You should aim to keep (single-target) a 4pc-buffed Immo up on the boss full time. If you have time to, and you think you'll cap before you can get a trinket-buffed CBolt out, you can both CBolt and Immo in one proc.
If there's multiple targets alive your #1 priority is to get as many 4pc-buffed Immos out as you can on targets that will live for most of it's duration.
Track your embers and as you fire off your incinerate on 2.9 you should start casting chaos bolt. It'll proc before the cast is finished. Then immolate. Both of them in with plenty of time to spare. Single-target ofc
I wouldn't really advocate casting a chaos bolt if 4pc procs on 1 ember or 2 embers though. Just immolate then back to normal. There's also variables with how to use it on the opener - with a haste buff you can fit in 2 chaos bolts (which will clip), or you can fit in one and then cast your second immolate for a big-ticking DoT.
It's the most interesting of all the tier-piece procs imo. It really makes the relatively simple "rotation" (we don't really have a rotation, I know) of destruction more interesting.
