Where do you use Jump and Spine Shatter? Im using them between the full thrust combo but im wondering if its optimal or not.

Garlemald did nothing wrong.
The DRG rotation is all sorts of fucked up now and I gotta say, I'm still struggling to comprehend myself. It's nowhere near as fluid as HW was and not even close to how fluid it was in ARR. Here's my opener:

Precast Eye of The Dragon > HT > BL > ID > B4B > Disembowel > BoTD > CT > True North > WT > Jump > F&C > MD > TT > SD > VT > LS > FT > MD > WT > D4D > F&C > Giers > HT

I'm 100% sure that my opener is NOT optimal in any sense of the word, but it's the only way I can get some fluidity out of my rotation. After my opener I tend to just use cooldowns as soon as they pop and it SHOULD get you a Nastrond lined up with B4B every other gaze. The only time I double weave is when I pop Giers to get Nastrond but that's because of the servers being in fucking Sacramento.

Also, I see SE hasn't learned their fucking lesson with HW and made the only lvl 70 dungeons at this point absolute fucking ass for classes like DRG and BLM. Because who needs to manage stacks and stances? Better drop your DPS and do mechanics!

Thats pretty much what my rotation is like. I keep hearing about DRG and BLM being pain in the ass in SB, both being my favorite jobs.

BLM could really use a oGDC to keep AF/UI up. Or something wild like shortening Manawards cooldown to under 30 seconds.

4 flares and 6 fell cleaves sound good though e.e

The only thing that pisses me off about BLM is that Enochian is tied to Astral Fire and Umbral Ice. It drives me insane, before Stormblood I could shit out four Fire IVs and go immediately into Umbral Ice, now I'm forced to do two Fire IVs and a Fire I followed by another two Fire IVs.

That's pretty much what my rotation is like. I keep hearing about DRG and BLM being pain in the ass in SB, both being my favorite jobs.

I feel like youre punished too much for dropping your rotation considering it could be up to 30 seconds before you can get going again. Potencies are supposed to make up for it but i dont feel like its enough.

The punishment in Heavensward was fine, because it was recoverable. You drop Astral Fire but still have plenty of time on Enochian? The fastest way to keep it up would be to hardcast a Blizzard I and then Blizzard IV and start over with Astral Fire III. But now if you drop anything either by accident or through mechanics of the fight itself, you're fucked.

I meant losing Enochian and with it the phases completely. Though yeah its not so bad in what ive played of HW, im still missing EX's and Alexander stuff. Worst i can think of is Diabolos Hollow but thats mostly due to other players. Probably not even close to Shinryu from what ive read.

Tbh its probably the most fun ive had with a DPS but it also gets exhausting. How anyone plays it with a controller is beyond me.

I feel the same with mouse and keyboard tbh. It's easy to swap cuz all you need to do is configure in the options to hold LT down and then hit RT and it goes to one side of hotbar 2, and vice versa, seeing as all your skills are just on those 2 hotbars.

And just use hotbars on the side to show when my skills I can't see refresh. I'll screencap my UI later.

I do like BRD in all honesty, while I didn't have a problem with Wanderer's Minuet in HW, I do like the play style in Stormblood. Also, it almost feels like I'm playing Guitar Hero on the keyboard lmao.

Why do OT's 90% of the time insists on DPS stancing when the OT is down. Is it too much to ask for to PICK UP THE SLACK SO IM NOT NEXT IN LINE TO GET RAVAGED REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
