I know that I have made a few waves recently, and I I would like to first apologize if I made anyone unhappy. In the end I am still committed to helping people play the game. I will try to keep my opinions to myself from now on, and I pray you can forgive my outbursts as of late.
Recently I have noticed a few people mention that they were unsure how to use battle regimens. I thought that making a video might help.
Battle Regimens 101:
In the video you will notice that I refer to a regimen "chart" The chart is located here:
Step 1: Press the "battle regimen" button just to the left of your skill bar, it is very small, and easy to miss. It is located here:
Once you press this button, the surrounding icon will turn red, indicating that it is ready for you to choose your skill.
Step 2: Press the skill you want to use in the regimen. Just once. (If it is a spell, you will need to confirm)
Step 3: The skill will appear on your screen in a window, this means your skill is awaiting another skill, or for the regimen to start.
Step 4: Once all skills that are going to be a part of this regimen are listed in the box on screen, the player who put their skill into the regimen first will press "G" on their keyboard. (If you are playing with a controller, it is mapped to a key as well, this is different depending on how you set up your controller)
Step 5: Done! All skills in the regimen should go off all at once, and the box listing all of the skills should disappear. As well, your "battle regimen" button should have gone back to blue.
Part 2 will be focused on advanced battle regimen tactics, such as:
Prioritizing weapon-skills so that incapacitation skills come second or third, so that the damage increase increases incapacitation speed,
How to increase the speed and frequency of battle regimens to increase DPS, even in incapacitation situations,
and How to set up multiple battle regimens in a raid so that they don't overlap and slow progress.
Best of luck, and I hope you enjoy the video!
