WW Uldir Parse Advice?

Monk
Hey monk and specifically windwalker friends! I have been playing WW since MOP and I am trying to improve my parses for each fight in Uldir on heroic. WW doesn't have much variation in terms of talents right now PVE wise, so I've got that down.

But one each fight, how do I maximize my performance and are there any special tips/tricks for specific fights to get the most out of my parse? Shooting for orange parses and high purple parses. I know parses don't mean everything of course, but it's something I want to improve.
It comes down to using ToK and ToD on cooldown as efficiently as possible, ill type something up in a bit to post for you
WW parsing is literally just how well you're able to cheese with Touch of Karma. Not really much else to it.

This is probably most effective if getting your numbers up is most important to you. knowing exactly when to TOK and TOD when you can have the msot of the burn time is where most of your numbers are going to come from.

Example: G'huun you hold your TOD till phase 2 comes when the boss actually happens and then pop it again during your burn phase along with TOK and your numbers will spike hard!.

Zul is depenent on burn strat or kill add strat. Save use TOK earlier and save it for phase 2 after 40%

Zek TOK whenever you see bad on the ground that doesnt spawn an add. time it right you can eat 2. TOD whenever you can exept when your getting like 40 or 30 % because after that you want to have your TOD ready to go if you get the Orb for that damage boost.

Vectis: use it both whenever on CD

that one thats a tank and spank fight. just use TOD on CD and TOK when ever you see him use is breath and stand in it.

Mother: TOD and TOK whenever on CD. TOK you can survive a beam if you play your cards right.

Talec: whenever on CD.

... I have a hard time following my own knowledge of TOK simply because its really really hard to think of TOK as a offensive rather than a defensive.
Yeah its 80% knowing when to ToD / Karma 20% praying you don't get targeted with a mechanic that forces you to move when you're in the middle of burst, and lastly accepting that you will never parse well on G'huun cause you have to run orbs :-)
As most of the above posters have said - by and far the best thing to do to increase your parses is to work on how/when you Karma and ToD. For Karma Berusein did a decent job of explaining when to use Karma however (this is what I do in my guild to make sure I get the full damage/absorb of my karma) taunting the boss is in my opinion the best way to make sure you get your full Karma off.

Its unfortunate that this is the case but the difference between having your Karma absorb 70k damage vs 150k damage is huge. If taunting the boss for 2 melee swings is not plausible for your group I would recommend getting the following weak aura so you can monitor your absorb on your karma and basically just stand in stuff until it goes away (https://wago.io/B1M5OqeFb)

To add to the above post about when to use Karma my suggestions are:

Taloc - on the first cudgel of gore if you stand directly on the tank it will use your full karma and you will take no damage - depending on your dps you can get a second karma at the bottom of the elevator by standing in a plasma discharge puddle

Mother - this is situational depending on the comp of your group if you dont have too many melee and they are stacking you can stand in roughly 3-5 of the purifying flames which will eat your entire karma

Fetid - depending on your comp and if your healers are confident - I usually get 2-3 stacks of the debuff when the first adds comes out this will eat your entire karma otherwise if you dont want to take unnecessary damage for your dps you can stand in the breath which will not eat a full karma

Zek'voz - Use karma on the first surging darkness and than on cooldown it should line up with a future surging darkness

Vectis - Talk with your group few other classes benefit from taking damage not a lot of people are going to purposely want the debuff as soon as you get the omega vector pop Karma and it will eat the whole thing use on CD as long as you are taking omega vector

Zul - I usually taunt for 2 swings otherwise in phase 2 you can either soak a puddle or stand in the puddles the tanks drops

Mythrax - This fight is kind of a pain to judge when to karma depending on your comp if you know your melee heavy you can have melee stack and knock them out in 2s to get a full karma, again this is dependent on your group comp/skill level

Ghuun - your an orb runner face it - you can time Karma with the burn face and depending on group size/dps ou can get another off during p2
