Best thing said in this thread. I personally prefer LR for several reasons, focus cost being one of them. The other is the fact that even with the extended length on LR bleed, AMOC still takes an extra 5 seconds, and that is an extra 5 seconds I'm not willing to wait to re-use it the 2nd time after readiness. The entire debate about AMOC vs LR is, indeed, mostly about personal preference as well as about fight length/mechanics. For example, on a fight like Spirit Kings, AMOC may come out well behind because you might find yourself having to either delay it's use because of a boss dying soon, or clip some ticks for the same reason. Every fight is different.
This is an unacceptable loss to any progression raider.
lol. You might want to switch to de-condescending. 250k damage on any raid boss is the difference between 2 crits. Nobody in their right mind is losing sleep over that. Like I said before, a shorter fight that would allow you to get in an extra LR or even 2 would come out on top as well. A 6 minute fight would allow for only 5 AMOC uses, including a 2nd readiness, whereas LR would allow for 6.
That extra focus cost could also make up significantly for any damage difference. 5 AMOC uses = 300 focus, minus 60 for the two that might line up with BW, so 240. 240 focus = a potential extra 12 arcane shots squeezed in.
My arcane shots hit for an average of 32k, crit for 66k. Assuming roughly 4 of those 12 extra will crit, that's a net damage of approximately 500-530k. ( Of course, this is not purely bonus damage that an AMOC user would not get, but it could make a difference)
On this Heroic Feng kill, my Lynx rush did 2,228k damage. More than enough for me to feel content in using it.
