not disputing your guide in any way but i just wanted your opinion, i use a spec shown in the link above, i find Eye for an Eye to be a negligible dps increase at best, wheras the utility you get from selfless healer allows you to save wipes or yourself if you have a struggling healer
thoughts? am i wrong here or what
There's no truly wrong way to spend the last two points; I simply choose to put them in E4E because they are a DPS increase. Slight, yes. Negligible? Matter of perspective. Depending on the fight, it can net anywhere from half a percent to a good 2 or 3% of your total output. My recommended spec is simply based on the desire to maximize output.
[e] Edited the Spec section to include a little something about Selfless Healer, and then some. Thanks for bringing it up.

do you have numbers to prove that using judgement behind DP procs is higher than using it before?
edit: and i don't possibly see how HoW could be higher than Exo now with the crit nerf to HoW

Now people can't whine that I'm telling them to read out of date guides (which are still perfectly relevant for the core mechanics) when they make threads saying "MY DPS SUCKS FIX ME NOAWWW!!!!".
Thanks for reading. :) Glad it helped.
It's pretty basic logic. Why would you risk wasting a possible DP proc, and therefore a free TV, and therefore free DPS? I can't give straight-up numbers without actually scaling the raw benefit of each ability--and, to be honest, I don't know if I'm adept enough in the use of sim programs yet for that. If basic reasoning isn't sensible enough, I suppose you don't have to follow the suggestion. After all, that's all it is. Remember, most of this is theoretical.
Even with HoW crit rate vastly reduced, the priority of HoW ahead of Exo seems to remain. I suspect this is because delaying HoW will set back the CD on the next, while delaying Exo rarely will lose an Exo proc.
[e] Just to be clear, please don't take anything you find in the guide as the gospel truth. The information provided here is meant to be suggestion, not "do this or be bad."

I'm going to go ahead and sim both rotations in normal T13 BiS. I sort of got lost in all of the information while putting this thing together that I neglected to actually do so... I've been using first-glance logic, but I may or may not be able to get actual numbers. I'll post my findings.
[e] Sims suggest no real variation between DP TV > J and J > DP TV. I'm writing it off to preference for the time being. If someone comes up with definitive numbers to prove that one way or the other is more efficient, then right on. Otherwise, it isn't such a big deal.

Good job. First read through, I thought I had something to add, second read through, realized I didn't, you just covered it elsewhere and it didn't click in my brain. Kinda tired at the moment.
