  1. A lot of guides say to start with Ifrit and use Flaming Crush
  2. at 15 second countdown to manipulate pet RNG involving
  3. Contagion, but from personal experience it doesn't seem to
  4. change anything. That may be a ping issue though, try it and
  5. see how things work out for you, but it's not *super*
  6. important.
  7.  
  8. Pre countdown: Ifrit summoned and on Obey, Aetherflow full
  9. and cooldown below 35 seconds.
  10.  
  11.  
  12. Opener:
  13. -7s Summon Garuda
  14. -6s Radiant Shield (should cast before Garuda is summoned)
  15. -5s Diversion
  16. -4s Infusion of Intelligence
  17. -2.5s Ruin 3
  18. -1.5s Wind Blade
  19. PULL
  20. Ruin 2 > Tri-Disaster > Rouse
  21. Ruin 2 > Fester > Devotion (If you start far from the boss,
  22. try to stay close to melee and throw in a Heel somewhere
  23. in this GCD so Devotion actually hits people)
  24. Ruin 2 > Shadowflare > Painflare (Press Sic around here as
  25. soon as you see Devotion cast, Sic is faster than manually
  26. pressing Contagion, but using Sic too early will actually
  27. cancel Devotion)
  28. Ruin 2 > Fester > Dreadwyrm Trance
  29. Ruin 3 > Enkindle > Tri-Disaster
  30. Ruin 3 > Deathflare > Aetherflow
  31. Ruin 2 > Fester > Manashift (on BRD to extend Foes)
  32. Ruin 3
  33. Ruin 2 > Fester
  34. Ruin 3
  35. Ruin 2 > Fester
  36.  
  37. Pre-DWT phase:
  38. Ruin 2 > Fester
  39. Ruin 3
  40. Ruin 2 > Fester
  41. Ruin 3
  42. Ruin 2 > Fester
  43.  
  44. DWT phases:
  45. Ruin 2 > Dreadwyrm Trance > Tri-Disaster
  46. Ruin 3 x6 > Deathflare
  47.  
  48. Bahamut:
  49. Ruin 2 > Aetherflow > Summon Bahamut
  50. Ruin 2 > Fester > Akh Morn
  51. Ruin 2
  52. Ruin 2 > Fester
  53. Ruin 2 > Addle
  54. Ruin 2 > Fester
  55. Ruin 2 > Tri-Disaster
  56. Ruin 2 > Akh Morn
  57. Ruin 2
  58.  
  59. Notes:
  60. - Bio 3, Miasma 3, and Aetherflow are your golden timers.
  61. Keeping your dots up at all times and making sure Aetherflow
  62. is never off cooldown marks good SMN play, everything else is
  63. small optimization.
  64.  
  65. - You actually have a lot of maneuverability with your
  66. rotation as SMN. There's no perfect time for your DWT phases
  67. that will be the same every fight, but the very latest you
  68. can start a DWT phase is when Aetherflow cooldown is on 16
  69. seconds. Any later and you risk leaving Aetherflow off
  70. cooldown and/or losing DWT time by using Deathflare early.
  71. That leaves you 45 seconds to decide the best time to use it.
  72.  
  73. - That being said, in fights like O10S where there's a lot of
  74. downtime, getting Aetherflow back off cooldown is more
  75. important than getting the max out of DWT, use Deathflare ASAP
  76. in these situations.
  77.  
  78. - Typically you want to be using Tri-Disaster to refresh your
  79. dots but that's not always possible. Hardcast them if DWT is
  80. not up and/or you need it for Bahamut phase.
  81.  
  82. - We use Tri-Disaster and Addle with Bahamut to proc
  83. Wyrmwaves, always aim for 11 Wyrmwaves and 2 Akh Morn casts
  84. every Bahamut phase.
  85.  
  86. - Between phases is as simple as casting Ruin 3 as much as
  87. possible. Only use Ruin 2 to weave in oGCDs. If you need to
  88. move, judge if you can wait until DWT to not lose Ruin 3
  89. casts.
  90.  
  91. - Normally you're free to use Rouse on cooldown, but if
  92. Bahamut is less than 20 seconds away, wait until after Bahamut
  93. to use it. On that topic, Devotion and Enkindle have weird
  94. cast times, try not to risk using them less than a GCD before
  95. Bahamut.
  96.  
  97. - Always watch for Ruin 4 procs, and replace ANY Ruin 3 or 2
  98. cast with it. Holding on to it for more than a GCD risks
  99. losing out on more possible procs.
  100.  
  101. - Typically with where we press Sic in the opener, Contagion
  102. will line up just before Aetherflow, allowing it to be used
  103. with Fester phases and Bahamut. But more often than not,
  104. you won't have 100% uptime on the boss, so if Contagion comes
  105. off cooldown and the boss in untargetable or you're attacking
  106. an add, put Garuda on Obey until you can sync Contagion with
  107. those phases again.
  108.  
  109. - In AoE situations, never underestimate Bane and Tri-bind.
  110. Bane passes the dots *AND* time remaining to other targets,
  111. so try to hold off dotting until you can freely use Bane
  112. straight after to maximize dot uptime on all targets. Tri-bind
  113. should replace Ruin 3 during DWT phases if there are 3 or more
  114. targets in range, don't use it outside of DWT unless you like
  115. not having MP.
