So I've been out of the scene for awhile now. Last time I was around knights just went through their change and alchemists just popped up. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things and wanted some opinions on a few subjects.
DWC combat ----
I saw a few threads on this but they were dated awhile back. Is DWC (runewardens specifically) combat still heavily reliant on venom setups to either push for burst damage or the lucky torso break/disembowel setup? I've never been one to really fully grasp affliction tracking enough to utilize venom locks or combos enough to really get anywhere except a lucky break combo for some damage. In that sense should I just shoot for a different specialization other than DWC or could I manage low-mid tier combat with just a few venoms and some lucky setups?
On the subject of affliction tracking and venom comprehension----
Is affliction tracking frowned upon? In the sense of using it auto track/select venom combos for my next attacks. I'm not looking to fully automate my system but I know I do need help in the venom selection department especially in the heat of battle. I tend to know what direction I am going in until either my break setup messes up or I have to switch to fighting defensive. From there I lose track of which venoms to use and how to hinder effectively. I wanted to create something to either echo out what I need to use next or making something that will select my venoms needed based on the fight conditions (target class/afflictions gained or lossed) but not if it was going to cause problems or get frowned upon.
Ask affliction tracker--
Is this script pretty up to date as far as the new classes that are out and what I would need for DWC or should I just look to create my own based off of my own needs. I've looked through the script already and there are some pieces I would like to use but a majority of it I won't even touch because I already have something in place for it (svof limb counter and some of my own general echo and highliting for combat) or should I look to fully integrate the script into my system to get the full benefit.
Thanks for the help in advance and sorry for any errors. Currently on my phone
