Swipe v Shred @Iron Maidens

Postby Dominati » Tue Mar 03, 2015 5:22 am

Is there any reason why we would use shred over swipe for iron maidens?
Obviously shred during incarnation and during boat phase, but all the top parses prioritise shred over swipe.

Based on my tooltips:
Swipe = 7602*1.2*3 = 27367/45energy = 608dpe
Shred = 15491*1.2 = 18589/40energy = 464dpe

We'd also be getting more CP from Primal Fury too, would we not?

Can anyone elaborate on this for me?

Well... At least not while incarnation because of the used out of stealth buff increasing DMG and crit chance...
... But without incarnation... Mhm...

Shred in Incarnation, Swipe otherwise @ 3 targets.

Either way not a huge difference one way or another. Most of your energy goes to maintaining DoTs outside of berserk anyhow.

Where do you find your extra energy to blow on shred or swipe, heck, I'M too busy pooling energy to maintain thrash, 3 rakes, and 3 rips...

Yeah what Hamwich says is the main thing, on 3 targets you're going to very rarely have spare energy to Shred or Swipe (but when you do you can Swipe). The other thing is the only time all 3 are up simultaneously is every 3 minutes so unless you're doing boats and saving it for that then you're going to be spending very very little time on 3 targets that you don't have incarnation up.
