Alilah Posted May 2, 2016 Share Posted May 2, 2016 Alright. So, throughout my career as a FM, I have seen arguments for and against this build. Here's a little about me. I am level 50 with True Breeze Bangle Stage 5. My AP is 539. Currently, my build looks like this for PvE. https://bnstree.com/FM?build=5007000255412564126533238342503338041106342513323533300211202124132263212494123932237322432141011 Now, what I will do in PvP is start off with Burn, Inferno>BB>Left Click>Right Click>Repeat Then Short Fuse>Meteor Storm>BB>Left Click>Right Click>Wildfire>BB>Left Click>Right Click>Repeat For the Ice Phase, I will Frost Fury>Right Click>Left Click>Focus Blast>Left Click>Right Click>Focus Blast>Repeat until fire phase. My Blazing Beam's will normally hit around 10.9 - 12.1k and my Focus Blast's will normally hit 10.5-11k. The reason why I use Focus Blast Specc'd is because none of my abilities take away Freeze, and it's easier to keep up on a boss than Burn is, AND using the Focus Blast I'm specc'd into doesn't get rid of it, so it's basically burn, just frozen. Plus it does 2.5k-2.7k more damage on a Freezing enemy. I've found that detonating the embers does more literal DPS (damage per second), but FM's, even some well known ones such as Red have tried to tell me otherwise by linking me a video where a Korean streamer said "Auto-Det sucks *for this boss*", and that's only because the boss reset the debuffs (much like Mushin does). The problem with this is they never gave me a legitimate answer as to not use it. It's always just "becuase it sucks" or "because you hit harder in burn" or just because people like seeing bigger numbers all the time. However, I am open to a counter argument. I am very serious about DPSing and I'm very open to suggestions. I'd like some constructional feedback on my build as well, if that's okay. Please, no "BECAUSE IT'S BETTER" or "AUTO-DET SUCKS". I understand that for bosses that reset debuffs it isn't ideal, but for everyone else, I feel like my build is the best. At least, in my opinion. P.S, I used to be a huge hater of Auto-Det. I normally would just use the regular ol' burning build until a very good FM (sandwichlord) and I got into a heated discussion about it, and then I tried it out for myself, and I haven't gone back since. I realize that BnS tree (incorrectly) says that Focus Blast only does 78 or so more DMG on Frozen Enemies. So I took SS's of my damage doing Focus Blast without Freeze And with Freeze.
