Just wanted to ask something I've been wondering about for a while now.
I've read several times that during BW, it's best if you can use Dire Beast right before it for the additional focus regeneration and to purely spam directly damaging abilities like KC, AS, GT, etc. while BW is active.
Of course, sometimes the CDs just don't line up that way and Dire Beast comes off CD during BW. If that happens, do you use DB still right as it comes off CD, or do you delay it until BW has worn off? My gut feeling would be to still use it during BW, since its DPET ratio is so high as BM.
Also, an unrelated question: how do you handle the "Dash" pet ability? Do you leave it on autocast, or do you use it manually when you need to switch targets?
