    Ashvane's Razor Coral usage

    When do i need to use my Ashvane's Razor Coral? I am using it on pull and then using it again once my 2 min CD's are up, is this right?

    Personally (and assuming you do not have Cyclotronic, and why don't you?!) if you don't have any other on use trinkets. I think you should be using it on the pull to start stacking the coral, and when BW is up again using it again to have the crit buff active during the duration. As soon as it's up again make sure to activate asap to start stacking coral for either the next BW or any burn phases coming up.

    Obviously Razor Coral isn't a burst trinket, so you'll still be wanting to use Font on pull for the burst.

    I picked up a nice one last night and am struggling a bit with adequately using both the cyclo and this and the heart trait appropriately. I found a WA for the coral but damn.

    With Font and Coral:
    Since both Font and AotW share a 2 minute cooldown, you definitely want to be using Font first over the Coral so that you don't mess up its alignment with AotW (if you delay Font by 20 seconds then it won't align with AotW for the rest of the fight unless you also delay AotW as well, which is not ideal).

    You can actually have all 3 buffs to be aligned for 10 seconds if you go:
    0 seconds: Start Font buff (lasts 30 seconds), Coral is put on a 20 second cooldown
    10 seconds: Start AotW buff (lasts 20 seconds), Font has 20 seconds left
    20 seconds: Start Coral buff, Font has 10 seconds left, AotW has 10 seconds left
    So in that last 10 seconds you have all three buffs up.

    With Cyclotronic Blast and Coral:
    I think you want to save Cyclotronic Blast until after AotW finishes. If you use Cyclotronic Blast just before using AotW then that will put Coral on a 20 second cooldown right when you are about to use AotW so you won't be able synch the 20s Coral buff with AotW, which is almost certainly a DPS loss.

    However what's not clear is after the second AotW where you've gained the crit buff from Coral: do you reapply the coral buff so you can start stacking up the buff again? Or do you use cyclotronic blast first, then wait the 20 seconds before reapplying Coral? My inclination is that you should start stacking the coral buff before using Cyclotronic Blast again since all that does is push back Cyclotronic Blast by 20 seconds and then it will stay there for the rest of the fight (whereas you'll lose a little DPS by losing uptime on stacking Coral every time you delay Coral), although it probably depends on the length of the fight (i.e. if delaying Cyclotronic Blast by 20 seconds causes you to lose one use of it in the fight, then it probably isn't worth the tiny extra crit chance gained by reapplying Coral 20 seconds earlier).

    So here's my guess at the ideal rotation:
    0 seconds: Apply Coral, Cyclotronic Blast is put on 20 second cooldown
    0 seconds: Start AotW buff (lasts 20 seconds)
    20 seconds: Use Cyclotronic Blast
    2 minutes: Start AotW buff (lasts 20 seconds)
    2 minutes: Start Coral buff (lasts 20 seconds)
    2 minutes 20 seconds: Reapply Coral, Cyclotronic Blast is put on 20 second cooldown
    2 minutes 40 seconds: Use Cyclotronic Blast
    4 minutes: Start AotW buff (lasts 20 seconds), Cyclotronic Blast still has 40 seconds of cooldown
    4 minutes: Start Coral buff (lasts 20 seconds), Cyclotronic Blast still has 40 seconds of cooldown
    4 minutes 20 seconds: Reapply Coral, Cyclotronic Blast still has 20 seconds of cooldown
    4 minutes 40 seconds: Use Cyclotronic Blast
