? Use Potion
? Use Potion: Use your potion during execute phase with Colossus Smash/Warbreaker
? Use Racial Active Buff
? Use Trinkets: Try to align with burn phases or AoE
? Save Warbreaker for 2+ targets if it won't cool down again in time.
? Prioritize using Overpower whenever you aren't at 2 stacks of the Overpower buff. This is so that you don't miss out on possible cooldown resets. When you can Execute, you can use this at will because you will only be using Execute and not Mortal Strike.
? Save Bladestorm for 3+ targets AoE if it won't cool down again in time. Otherwise it is also good against a single target so use it when available.
? Is Deadly Calm up?

Frequently Asked Questions

🧐 How is this Guide useful?

The goal of our guides is to show you the overall "optimal" options for building your character. If you do not wish to dig through walls of text then you may like our visual "cut to the chase" approach.

📚 Where do you get this data from?

We use algorithms to parse big data chunks from Top 1% players from Arena and RBG leaderboards using the official Blizzard API. We believe that statistics is a very reliable method for determining solid choices for end-game optimization.
