    ref rotation (again sorry )

    ok this is not yet another thread about the rotation ,, but more about getting the best out of it ..
    ok the q i would like to ask is, is it better to let my mind flay finish before i re-put my dots up or just use mind flay as a stop-gap on dps ( as in ,all dots are up so use mind flay , but as im casting it one dot comes off cooldown ,do i let the mind flay finish before i re-apply the dot or just cast the dot right away then back to mind flay ??

    sorry if this seems a silly thing to ask , but im new'ish to raiding as shadow priest and have looked at other posts but can not find an answer

    Refreshing DoTs promptly always takes priority. Most of your DPS improvement will come from reducing VT downtime/reducing VT tick clips.

    Refreshing before its duration has run, meaning you miss the last tick of damage with it, and it's now 2 (or 3, can't remember) seconds before you get the first tick from the re-cast.

    Keep DoTs up all the time, MB as soon as it comes off CD, MF when the former is done.

    A formula to work out how much of the fight you have your DoT's up is: Number of ticks*3/duration of fight (in seconds)*100. Ie 16*3/120*100 = 40% uptime on that DoT. Do this after a fight to see if you need to work on keep your DoT's up.

    You can get a special texture for Quartz, to show when it clips

    Example:
