Question for people with just AoE builds - how do you deal with the long cooldowns? Fastest thing is 5 seconds, the rest are more (some much more). So do you take long downtime between each pack?
I've been focusing up til now, with the classes I've tried, on trying to figure out good combat rotations so I can just keep farming mobs. (Like, with Defender fighting regular mobs, I only use three skills, the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in the left column. 2-4-2-3-2 mob generally dead, 4 is almost recharged, move on to the next.) With the AoE build, though, it seems like less of a "rotation" and more of an alpha-strike then wait for cooldowns. (also seems like that wouldn't solo bosses well. Since, once you've hit everything, you're stuck standing there getting hit.)
Or am I looking at it completely wrong? (which is likely
if you just do a straight AoE build its not going to work out very well. That's why I added the 2 skills in the first column, they have kind of short reload times and they are pretty strong.
It's okay for PvP due to the fact that her tier 2 moves + hook and sinker work well. Try using the fire move as well, you might get a kill after you die ^_~. The downsides from this builds for PvP is its not that strong compared to how the other players are. Don't forget to wear cyber suit and have your chipped pet out.
