How you doing? Good to see your app. I am posting here for your use a guide Daddor put together for DPS if you care to try it. Some of us have been successful using it. I would highly encourage you to download Gameparse to parse yourself so that you can see how you are doing and look for ways to improve both yourself and others. The reason I bring up DPS is because more of that makes raid events go smoother as I am sure you know. If you have any questions please engage any of the CN rangers. We have a variety of philosophies on how we do what we do and there is much to learn from them and us from you. Hope to see you in game (more after this stupid vacation :( ).

I know there are many ways to do this and this is just what I do. Please feel free to make suggestions or tweaks if it will increase DPS. Tarvas is the real DPS whore so I am hoping he will have input!

Ancient Hedgewizard Brew - helps nuke harder (last about 60 mins so can use through most raids)
Tribute – Eyes of the hunter, Hero's Deftness, Juggler's Grace , Power of Will , Vengeful Aura
Glyph-Glyph of Destruction
Buffs- normal line but would try to add spirit of ta taki (Shaman adds 300 attk), and endless terror.

SET UP for burn hot bar
Create an assist social button and put it in a hot bar
/assist main
I bind this to my number 1 key.
Create an autofire social button and put it in a hot bar
/autofire
I bind this to my number 2 key.

Create a burn social button and put it in a hot bar
/pureshot discipline rk.III
/alt activate 1460 (first spire)
/alt activate 3804 (out acc)
/alt activate 872 (out attk)
/alt activate 723 (mast elem)
I bind this to my number 3 key.

Create a burn social button and put it in a hot bar
/alt activate 184 (guardian)
/alt activate 2235 (imbued fero)
/alt activate 874 (hunt pack)
/alt activate 883 (elem arrow)
I bind this to my number 4 key.

Spell casting
1 anticipated shots
2 dicho
3 focused arrowrain
4 summer’s cyclone
I bind theses to my number 5 key

Create a kick social button and put it in a hot bar
/doability 3 (normal kick for me)
/disc focused squall of blades
/disc jolting cut kicks
/alt activate 15073 (banestrike)
I bind this to my number 6 key.

On my hot bar, I have hot keyed
Auspice of the Hunter
Scarlet Cheetah Fang
Forceful Rejuvenation
2.0 epic clickie (Falcons Strike)
Breastplate clickie (Natural Alignment)
Intensity of the Resolute

So, with all that- this is basically how I do my burn
I hit 1, 2, 3, 4, then repeatedly smash 5 and 6 during hit.
I do not tie in Scarlet Cheetah Fang to a burn key because of the different situations and I try to hit it when Auspice is running. I normally click (with mouse) after I hit my #4 key as with 2.0 epic, BP clickie and Intensity of the Resolute. After first round of 3 arrow spells I hit Forceful Rejuvenation and hit them again. I will then throw in a Blisterbeattle Swarm and again when wears off.

After mastery of elements wears off I hit Scout’s Mastery of fire and ice.
After Guardian of the Forest drops I hit Group Guardian of the Forest
I then just click buttons as they refresh and that is all I do

MELEE BURN
Swap out Pureshot for Corpsestalkers and add in Reflexive Nettlespears and add a poison potion (scorpion or something)

Just sorta thinking about things because I'm bored so this may also help and also gets into the different flavors of what we do. For myself, instead of having my spells mapped to one key and my kick social mapped to another I map it all to one key (x for me). This allows me to concentrate on hitting one key over and over again instead of two. Basically what happens when you hit the "x" key is that the first spell that is not locked out will fire. When the spell bar is greyed out the first thing in the social that is not locked out will fire. Both spells and abilities will move in this fashion as long as the "x" key is hit once when the spell bar is not greyed out and once when it is. I have never found this not function in this manner.

Some other things mapped to my x key to fire when ready is Elemental Arrows and Volatile Arrows. You can also map your disarm key to it if you are trying to get that skilled up.

The one thing you will get is a lot of :spam1: though. I have a chat window for all that so it doesn't bother me all that much, but I play with six chat windows. I hear some of the heathens around here play with only one or two. Crazy people them.

Good information, Tarvas. Maybe college is doing you some good. You actually post like an intelligent person instead of the moron you really are. Bravo!
