    Yes I do have a celestial toon. It's still X followed by Y
    I have also played HL extensively as well as Quantum and Electricity. Don't make this out like rocket science, cause it's not. With HL you have a couple different rotations depending on the situation like Celestial but nobody calls that power "difficult".

    Is Quantum easy..? Yup, but in order to maximize dmg out you still have to rotate appropriately. You are right it's all predicated off time bomb (assuming that's your BOOM) but 2 different Q DPS will have drastically different numbers even at same CR if not rotating when to use DWave, TS, WB or Vortex.

    I think OP wanted to show how the advanced mechanics are still far from being balanced whilst Quantum (and now mental as well) will stand out in almost any comparison it clear as a day that some powers lack fully developed advanced mechanic, take electricity for example, you can't solely rely on using its AM. Fire has a lot of "IFs" that need to be met in order to perform its AM (which is exptemely power hungry).
    So far only the powers that have decently developed AM (in my opinion) are the combo powers which star their rotation instantly, other are either an overkill or struggling.
    As for earth and sorcery, I don't particulary like the pet concept, these powers should have a seperate option to give the player full command instead of feeding a loose cannon.

    Guess me and you do not agree in the same thing, so I just gonna end the conversation in here.

    I believe that the am is a work in progress. Well I hope so anyway. I personally have a fire toon and I refuse to dps with it. I will only tank because of the joke of an am. But all we can do is voice our opinions and see if the devs take notes on what we feel should be fixed

    Celestial IMO is a very easy power (had a toon for it since it came out) but the recent update to it made it suuuupppeeer easy to do good damage. (Which is why I switched that toon to gadgets :p ) But to each his own.
  6. L T Devoted Player

    To be fair, I show three different Quantum rotations (two of which don't even involve clipping) and all of them do rather well.
  7. Kohina Well-Known Player

    I don't remember mentioned that Celestial was hard or anything like that did I? The only thing I mentioned is that Celestial takes time, effort and skill in order to learn how to maximize your damage but hey as at you said "But to each on his own".
  8. HeavyWeapon Dedicated Player

    He said he didn't have HT mods active here and it clearly shows Quantum doubling still.
  9. Vyltran Loyal Player

    When you got Celestial numbers you may have be bored.. for a lot of testing and gathering data. But that power can keep up with most of OP ones if you really know how "player & power become 1". Besides that, good job.
  10. generalzod Committed Player

    Hes said he was learning but agree once you master it its very strong so those number are probably off ! but that's why we need more ppl to post number like his so we can have balance now we have paser

    Not a great rotation. Benediction combo is a DPS loser. Also, get Admonish out of there. I'd recommend:

    Think about that last line for a second.

    On top being extremely good an extremely broken arm, to begin with it's so good if you take the max damage mod out its comparable to most powers running without a 60% damage modifier.
  13. HeavyWeapon Dedicated Player

    You know if you are too good at doing the RcW/ScH it's possible to finish PcDL before the dots from the first one are done thus losing out on the big hit. That should be fixed. I shouldn't be penalized for being really good at my rotations.
  14. Remander Steadfast Player

    I usually just slip in another Smite without combo to fill the gap. ;)

    Edit: I also have the order of RcW and ScH switched.
  15. Veritech Loyal Player

    Actually it puts out exactly the same numbers as gadgets when both are run without mods. At least on my parser tests anyway.

    Post your results and testing process if you feel like sharing

    This is my load out rotation and I am doing great damage.. I am a mediocre DPS and this puts me in the elite top of the scoreboard

    What is the hand mod doing to quantum?
  20. ACW37162 Loyal Player

    I have shared mine in several places, just not in Gotham.

    Strange things happen in this thread like people suddenly saying they are getting drastically different results then several others.

    It's one of the main reasons I just give people s nudge in the right direction to test.

    More data the better you don't want to share cool not much else to talk about there once you make that call tho.
