    Aloha!

    What's your favorite order of casting spells for a boss fight!

    Do you always drop RC or an EV? Explosion? Spell Plague? Corpse Skin? Omen? Do you finish with Flame Strikes? Word of Death!?


    :p

    Depends on the boss and the character I'm there with, but if they're weak to fire, have a huge or unlimited mana pool, and I'm on my Necro/Mage then I use Corpse Skin, then Flame Strike+Evil Omen combo until Corpse wears off, then repeat. Even have a macro to do both automatically. I find as most bosses have some counter attack measure or another so fewer but harder hits are best, it lessens the chance of being retargeted and having to heal. If it's weak to energy I use Chain Lightning+Evil Omen combo. Usually get anywhere from 300-800 damage per combo without overloading on SDI gear.

    My Mystic I haven't been very impressed with of late, RC's don't seem anywhere near as good as they once were, Hail Storm benefits from not dissipating it's damage the more targets it hits (unlike Meteor Swarm/Chain Lightning) but as my Mystic isn't a Wraith that isn't of huge use to me.

    WOD I think is a bit cheap and crap, as it's like running in after everyone else has done all the work and trying to swipe the reward, but I do love comboing it with Tribulation, again with little/no SDI doing 300ish WOD with an additional 200ish going off from Tribulation.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Corpse Skin / Evil Omen / Flame Strike - Is fun!

    Generally I do -
    Drop RC or EV's /Explosion / Corpse Skin / Spell Plague / Fire Ball - spam Fire Ball till Corpse Skin falls off and re-cycle.

    Word of Death / Tribulation - I love it! Maybe Mage/Necro/Weaver/Bard will be my next build. Wraith Disco sounds interesting.

    be blessed,

    FS Omen other way around. On things multiple people are hitting if you Omen then FS someone else will get the benefit of your Omen. FS Omen lands quicker and closer together to ensure you get the boost.

    There's probably a ping cut off for it working. But you can just use a macro:

    (6 lines on one key)
    Cast Spell - Flame Strike
    Wait For Target
    Last Target
    Cast Spell - Evil Omen
    Wait For Target
    Last Target

    Just use the Corpse Skin before hand (in case you're also xhealing people)

    If you're likely to get fizzled do it manually, but otherwise I use the macro.

    This is weird the information on evil omen indicates its the next harmful event is magnified. I guess that is why I was thinking Evil Omen then Flame Strike :/



    OMG how big is that retina screen shot? HAHA

    Well actually it's Chain Lightning + Evil Omen (can see it in the journal), though it is the same equivalent, so is Meteor Swarm, but Hydras are weaker to energy than fire.

    It is still the next harmful event. There is a delay between when you target some spells (when the mana is taken), and when the damage appears (due to the animation), Evil Omen casts fast enough and lands as soon as you target it so that it hits a split second before the damage from the Flame Strike or Chain Lightning.

    The character is using a Dragon Slayer Scrapper's, and has (including the 25 from Scrapper's) about 45 SDI (Which isn't a lot.) Though he also has Inscription.
