My question: Is it better to spam the traps or place one at a time? I tend to just spam them till I run out of hatred then build up hatred again with bolas.
What is the most efficient way to use it?
since no one really answered the question yet
NO, you cant spam spike traps if you attack speed is over 1.6 ish or so as you will overwrite them before they can all go off. Can place one only every 1.1 seconds or so to maximize the damage.
i usually uber 7 or 8 with a party, with my usualy party i dont really need boar and i use mark of death grim reaper with bola imm doom, or when theres another DH i usually have one of us use mark the other use boar
i never run out of disc, cuz generally i face tank when i have my boar or barb take on seige so i can just stand in one place to dps down zk (only using vault to get out of bubbles). i usually tank fireballs when im lazy and just potion up (i have + 12k potion heal) or gloom when potion on cd
and i would suggest u pick prep - back up plan and drop night stalker for perfectionist
you do not want to overwrite an echo..
the initial arm is the slowest (1.2) and clipping a blast wastes hatred....and echos are not that cheap
practice your rotation if you want to maximize
for NON use of custom engineering your optimal scenario is to place 1 echo every 1.067 seconds (3.2/3) your build will need to sustain close to 29 hatred/sec
imagining a timeline of 3.2 seconds - evenly space out 3 echos with hatred generators in between to ensure echos are going of at peak rate (774% weapon/sec) + generation and more DPS
1 shot + 1 echo in 1.067 seconds = 1.87 APS this is a bit of a "break" point
any more APS, (or more importantly) squeezing out another generator shot will lower the max ceiling 774% echo output, but for the sake of generation it may be necessary anyway
the next "break" is 2 shots + 1 echo every 1.067 seconds = 2.81 APS
as for interference in between those two APS, you will need to simply practice and adapt to the game as it happens... however those are the two models to maximize,
depending on the generator you are using there is no need to pause shooting, you might as well try to squeeze a 2nd (if you are over 1.87 aps) or 3rd shot (if you are over 2.81 aps) in and take the drop in echo output
as for those using Custome engi, it is doubtfull you'd ever have enough APS + generation to get the 57/sec needed to try to have a new echo every .534 seconds (3.2/6) (you'd need 3.75 APS!)
so overwriting your echos is going to be nearly impossible
