Just posted this on Method forum awaiting Vykina's response, but I am interested in your guys' experiences and thoughts as well:
My apologies if this has already been answered, but have you come to a conclusion on the rotation debate for the 2pc/4pc buffs?
I know there was a bit of discussion as to whether it was no longer worth saving Pyro! procs for HU because you need to keep up your 2pc procs and this would in turn force you to use IB more which makes your 4pc more valuable.
Any more information on this? I did a bit of testing myself and was doing about 187k single target self buffed with old rotation and 211k single target self buffed with "new" rotation. If we are moving to more of a "keep stacks as long as possible" rotation, my main question would be this:
Assuming you have some sort of stacks and you cast a fireball/Pyro! and you get a nocrit/crit combination (which leaves you with a HU proc only), is it worth using the Pyro! proc you gain off of your next IB cast on the end of the already casted fireball instantly to keep up your stacks? (as without meta procs or the like you will be out of time to cast something again).
I know that is quite confusing, but I hope you understand what I mean. That was the only real question I ran into when practicing the "new" rotation as I wasn't quite sure in those situations if it was okay to cast the Pyro! from IB instantly if you had no time to cast a FB just to keep stacks up.
Anyone have direct experience with this or done extensive testing/siming?
