jvmanke.9346 Posted February 23, 2022 Share Posted February 23, 2022 This is more of a curiosity question than anything, because I'm not a high level player, and relatively new to the game, but... I've been messing around with the new stat conbination coming from EoD (Ritualist's) to see if it could be useful in a quickness condi build for Firebrand, in the interest of ease to obtain I left the armor pieces as Exotic while I'm sudo theorycrafting. Here is the build I'm currently running, full Viper's + Rune of Firebrand (copied from Snow Crows btw). Here is the new build I'm eyeing on (WIP). I was playing about the ammount I could shave from concentration or if I could remove the 10% from Sigil of Concentration and still maintain 100% Quickness uptime, however while trying to calculate how much boon duration I needed I came to the result that would need 51-56% (with/without 100% alacrity) boon duration. Seeing that the "meta" build usually have at a maximum 30% I'm probably considering, or not considering, something wrongly. Here are my calculations: The skills that provide quickness (for a group) are: Mantra of Potence - 2.5s every 12s (this gives you 5s at the start if the fight but let's ignore that for now) - Not affected by Alacrity Feel My Wrath - 3s every 30s (6s for you but we are thinking group here) - Affected by Alacrity goes to 24s cooldown Mantra of Solace: Liberator's Vow: 2s every 12s (technicaly every 7s but then you'd run out of charges) - Not affected by Alacrity Stalwart Speed: 2s every 12s (technicaly every 7s but then you'd run out of charges) - Not affected by Alacrity This gives us an uptime of: 64.16% (w/o Alac) / 66.66% (w/ Alac) 2.5/12 ~ 20.83% 3/30 = 10% / 3/24 = 12.5% 4/12 ~ 33.33% To find how much boon duration we need, we can do the following: 64.16% uptime ---- 100% duration (0 concentration) 100% uptime ---- 100+x% duration (x is the end boon duration stat) x = (100% * 100%) / 64.16% - 100% = 55.86% w/o Alac x = (100% * 100%) / 66.66% - 100% = 50.01% w/ Alac What am i doing wrong? I'm probably not considering something simple... Anyway, I'm here to learn, shoot away! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
