Addition:

Autoactivate skills
Round Kick
Tiger Claw - Triggers Raven Claw attack debuff.  (I don't like using Eagle Strike, since it triggers a DoT and i don't like DoT'ing in an uncontrolled manner)

To Autoactivate, hold right click over Tiger Claw or Round Kick button and then select "auto activate"


And some cosmetic changes to BST Triggers.gtp 6/23/2023 4:02pm CST

Bestial Bloodrage
Changed trigger phrase from “<warder’s name> enters a bloodrage” to “You begin casting bestial bloodrage” so pet name is irrelevant
Also changed spelling of Audio Text to Speech so it sounds better

Venomous Alliance Fulfilled
Changed Display text to “BST Venomous resolved”, for consistency when they release the next version of Venomous “whatever”.

Deleted BST Fulmination triggers, since it is now covered by the Venomous Alliance fulfilled trigger

No changes to ADPS triggers.gtp

Bumkus notes 6/22/2024

So I spent some time organizing my Beastlord notes today.  Thx to Raccoo, Zu and all the other people I’ve been bugging for help lately.

Anyway, as I was putting these notes together, I figured I would post them here for others to see.  Hopefully there are some useful nuggets.

Big Personal Burn
/disc Kejaan's Vindication
--> Spam Cold or Poison DoTs while Vindication running during Big Burn
/alt act 127 (Frenzy of Spirit)
/alt act 1240 (Frenzied Swipes)
/alt act 241 (Bloodlust)
/alt act 245 (Bestial Alignment)
--> Savage rancor* on BA fade
--> Ferociousness on Savage rancor fade
--> Group BA on Ferociousness fade

I handle transitions to Savage Rancor, Ferociousness, Group BA through my triggers.

Don't do Nukes while Dicho/Ruuabri's running, unless Bard quicktime is running.  Time spent casting is time NOT spent swinging.  Instacast DoTs are OK.

Dicho chain while burning
Dicho-->Ruaabri's-->Dicho-->Forceful rejuv-->Dicho
--> Note that Ruuabri's overwrites and blocks Dicho/Eliptic Fury, so make sure Ruuabri's is down before clicking Dicho
--> This will give you a full 1 min 30 sec for Fury, which will cover entire Bestial Alignment duration

Glyph notes
Glyph and Intensity of the Resolute do NOT stack
Only Glyph AFTER Shm epic fades.  I note this in my ADPS Shm Epic trigger

hDEX
You cannot have too much.  I’m guessing I will need close to 5K hDEX (between gear, trophies, tribute, power source, etc) before I reach 100% crit rate, and that is with Rangers doing Auspice, Shm doing Ancestral Aid, Circles of Power and whatever else gets thrown out there during raids.

Pets
No procs on pets during raids
/blockspell add pet 16287 16528 46212 65378 32376 63747 16525 6278 3290 64145 61421 16329 49719 49713 64105 63063 63033 11538 49278 61566

No proc weaps on pets
Pierce weaps on pets better when grouped with Rogues
Blunt weaps better when grouped with Shaman

Pet Burn
/alt act 981 (Attack of the Warder)
/alt act 443 (Bestial Bloodrage)
-->  Don't use Bestial Bloodrage if pet tanking, due to de-aggro component

Potions that don’t overwrite each other
Gorowyn Fortified Drink -- 1hr 20 min
+
Hedgewizard brew or Dragonmagic Focus or Spectral Focus or Spider Bite -- Various durations
+
Refined Mana Tonic -- 6 hr 30 min
+
Burning Salad (if no Bard in group) -- 12 min
+
Mana Infusion -- 1 hr

Venomous Conjunction
Use often if there is at least one other BST in raid, but DON’T put it in a spam key.  You don’t want to fire it on some trash mob that is going to die in 10 seconds anyway
Also, it takes 4 BST DoTs to fire Conjunction, so don’t cast it if there is only one other BST in raid and you don’t have enough mana to cast any DoTs yourself (another reason not to put it in a spam key)
Have a trigger to catch other BST Conjunction casts, so you don’t overwrite theirs.  If you see a Conjunction cast, then only cast after other BST’s Conjunction fires.  A trigger is included in the Gina files below

Focused Clamor of Claws vs. Barrage of Claws
I have 2 separate combat spam keys for raids like Ankexfen Keep, where we need to stop doing AE after last boss hits 50%
If AE is not an issue, always use Barrage.  Even against a single target, it does more damage than Focused Clamor of Claws

Combat Focused
/pet swarm
/disc Wallop Rk.II
/alt act 11080 (Chameleon Strike)
/disc Focused Clamor of Claws Rk. III
/alt act 1239 (Consumption of Spirit)

Combat Barrage
/pet swarm
/disc Wallop Rk. II
/alt act 11080 (Chameleon Strike)
/disc Barrage of Claws Rk. II
/alt act 1239 (Consumption of Spirit)

Spells
Since our last 2 Lance spells share a timer now, I only multibind 4 spell slots, which I cast in this order
Xxx Maelstrom
Xxx Bite
Frozen Creep
Ankexfen Lance
For my last DD slot, I generally mem our AE Hoarfrost Roar.  But I manually click this instead on including it my multiband

Triggers
I did a big clean up on my triggers today.  Some of these are triggers I made, and some came from other BSTs that were nice enough to share

Not sure this is a bug, but i can equivocally say this is NOT the look I was going for.

I've been been playing around with a WAR persona on my BST.  System seems to be working fine, but sometimes you run into a funny bug

Freelance Ramblings / BST heal proc test
« on: January 03, 2024, 07:43:23 PM »
So, I've been fiddling around with heal sticks this expansion.  By heal sticks, I mean LS T2/T3 weaps with heal procs and Reactive healing augs.  Anecdotally, i find these weapons generate Actual healing approximately equal to 1/2 the Actual healing of a maxed out Cleric Merc.  Overall, the Cleric merc puts out a lot more Total healing, but much of it is wasted due to heals going over max HP.  Heal procs from weapons are for smaller amounts and spread more evenly over time, so is not unusual to see 90% healing efficiency or better from heal procs.  A merc might run closer to 50% efficiency.

To get a better feel for just how much healing is generated, i ran some parses in the arena over on Test.  These parses are only 15 minutes each and both were done on my BST.  I'll have to run these again on my Bard or Rog once they complete Achievements in NoS and LS to make the reactive Augs.

One thing that stood out is how much more healing i got when running BST Bloodlust AA.  I have typically viewed Bloodlust as an Offensive AA exclusively.  This opens up defensive possibilities, at least for 42 seconds, which is how long Bloodlust lasts.

Freelance Ramblings / Grakaw is my Bi-och
« on: November 27, 2023, 10:47:05 PM »
Grakaw bows before me.

BST - BARD - ROG + Tank Merc and 2 Healer Mercs. 

After extensive research, i can confirm this is not the most optimal group for this mission.

Updated Burn keys:
Burn 1:
/alt act 241 (bloodlust)
/disc Ruaabri's Fury Rk. II
/alt act 245 (Bestial Alignment)
/disc Savage Rancor Rk. III
/useitem Velazul's Dragonbrood Tunic (or whatever your best Chest click happens to be.  i put this at end because there is a short cast timer)

Burn 2:
/alt act 1240 (frenzied swipes)
/alt act 981 (attack of the warder swarm pet)
/alt act 1432
/disc Al`eles vindication Rk. III
/useitem Savagesoul Jerkin of the Wilds (Anguish chest.  again at end, since there is a short cast timer.

Separate clicks
- Bestial Bloodrage.  this reduces aggro from pet, so be careful using this when you need pet to hold mob down
- Reflexive sundering.  you can use this for an extre 4 attack every ten minutes, but other benefit is restoring endurance to your group, so use selectively
- Glyph of destruction II (does not stack with shaman epic anymore):
/timer 6000
/pause 3, /alt act 7019
/alt buy 7019
- Group Bestial/Ferociousness.  (i usually use these together for a miniburn.

Here is my UI.  i don't recommend setting yours up the same way, because I feel it is a little cluttered and i need to clean it up.  Hopefully there are some elements that other beastlords find useful.  I welcome any comments, as I believe there have been changes to how burn buffs stack and I might need to make some tweaks.  (Like crit damage % no longer stacks?)

Here are my basic driving instructions when using this set up

1.  Click 6 to /assist the MA in raids or in groups
2.  Click 4 to send in pet, and to make sure you merc is not happily sitting in Passive mode for whatever reason
3.  Click 3 to do various combat strikes
4.  Click 5 to cast spell.  You can either multibind 5 key to your spell bar, or multibind 5 or 6 slots of your hotkey bar, if you like the flexibility of changing spell cast sequence on the fly

From here continue mashing 3/5, 3/5, 3/5 and you will fire off spells and combat abilities like a roman candle

You'll note that I don't call out Feral Swipe, kick, Bite of the asp, or other combat abilities that used to suck up lines in macro windows.  Many of these abilities are merged with other combat abilities that can be Autoactived.  For example:
1.  Round Kick triggers Feral Swipe
2.  Eagle Strike triggers Bite of the Asp
3.  Tiger Claw triggers Raven's Claw
 
For burn, I use 2 hotkeys.  You can see that i like to include buttons for each ability called out in the burn key, just to confirm my burn fires properly.  Sometimes things don't fire and i have to go back and click the burn key again.
The first burn key is general personal buffage, so you can click when mob is inc, if you think it will be a short fight.
The second burn key needs to have a mob targeted.

After initial burn runs its course, i click Group Bestial, Ferociousness and Frenzy of Spirit.  I realize Frenzy of Spirit is personally better than Dicho or Ruabri's, but in a group it's better to sacrifice a little to get those on the group instead
