Scaeva, Darth Malgus, Rotation IO Merc, Patch 5.8
Rotation for the IO Merc
A Mag Shot can be reset twice within 15 seconds. The rotation consists of only 9
GCDs, latencies will normally fill the gap for procs of the Innovative Particle
Latencies depend on the internet connection and the used hardware, but also on
other factors like the distance to your enemy. At the test dummy the reset can
fail, in this case repeat the Powershot.
During raids and PVP matches the latencies are much bigger than at the test
dummy, in real fights I never have to repeat a Powershot.
Clipping of Unload (or Sweeping Blasters/Death from Above) has to be avoided,
otherwise the reset will fail systematically. 10 GCDs have to be filled with
attacks only if things went wrong.
With 9 GCDs and the perk Improved Vents the rotation is sustainable, Quick Shots
are not needed to reduce the heat level.
At the moment the game mechanics around the Thermal Detonator are broken. Other
than the tooltip suggests it explodes instantly, as consequence the proc Early
Ignition cannot be triggered. TD causes lower damage than an Incendiary Missile
or a Serrated Shot (or Electro Net).
Replace the Thermal Detonator with an Explosive Dart or a Fusion Missile if
there is a chance to spread your dots to several enemies!
Substitute Unload with Sweeping Blasters or Death from Above for AOE damage.
This variant will slowly deplete the resources.
Supercharged Gas is 8 seconds active, Incendiary Missile and Serrated Shot 15
seconds. Activate that buff after the 2 dots if only 1 enemy is around or after
the Fusion Missile for maximum AOE damage.
In older versions of SWTOR the reset of Mag Shots could fail if points were
spent on Alacrity. Fortunately BW changed the game mechanics, Alacrity does not
interfere with the proc of the Innovative Particle Accelerator anymore.
