    might as well sharpcast t4, will di more damage..., but with 2×t3 up, youll proc very likely more (and costs less mp)

    just potency alone, t4 would be a bit highet

    Only do that rotation if you don't care about max dps. I'm always trying to do the highest dps possible at any moment, so I go straight to the AOE for 2 trash. Its just t4 b4 f3 f4 f4 flare flare trans. The reason its better is because the 2 flares give you roughly 4xf4 worth of damage, but in less time, even with a full 3 second wait on transpose which doesn't happen often given randomness, foul procs and tc procs...

    Intuitively looking at it, it seems like the higher proc chance doesn't have a higher pps for two reasons, 1: the time it takes to cast 2x t3 (even with one being a straigt GDC) and 2: the extra procs would be worth less potency.

    What math is involved to optimize this situation?

    youre right on the pps for flaring 2 adds. it just alot of time when i do get 2 enenmy left, they are usaully low hp around that time and proabably my swift or triple is on cd or i just want to save it for the next set of full hp big mob pull and also the other dam dps kills it before my long cast flare goes off *makes a fist* lol.
    the flare longcast sometime equated to overkill dmg. thus why most of the time i tend to just f4 the remaining health when its 2mob.

    i guess it does help that my current meld is the 1050sps meld. i trade speed with bigger numbers :P
