My UI with LUI Auras active:



UI scaling differences:
If you use my auras and find they are a bit larger than they look in the screen shot, I have a different UI scale setup. If you are using a 1920x1080 resolution monitor you can downscale your UI from 1.0 to 0.75 to get the same portions as what I have.

LUI Aura Codes

How to import the codes: Open show spoiler button copy the text to your clipboard and ingame hit the import button and you are done.

Illusionary Blades:


Psi Point tracker:


Haunt:


Concentrated Blade:


Spectral Swarm:


Reap:


Spectral Form:


Psi Charges:


Gadget and Spectral form Cooldowns:


Mental Overflow stacks:


Bamors Psi Point counter:

Thank you for updating the guide! Been looking forward to reading it.

I was wondering which camp you would come out in CritSev or Vigor after the crit hit soft cap.
It appears you went with the crit sev priority. Did you see a significant increase vs vigor build?
"vigor build" having a priority of something like STK (to threshold) > Crit (<22%/24%) > Vigor (<30%) > Crit Sev (<250%)
I am using that now to test (no raid testing yet just dungeons and dummies).
I have my rune set priority swapped (onslaught most pieces for vigor, dev to fill in) and am using True Stike, Flurry (which I Was thinking of dropping for Full Strength if I Can hit 24% crit with the dev runes), Untouchable, and Siphon.
I was thinking that setup might make for some more interesting game play with pre casting PA, monitoring health, moving early to avoid things (as should always be done, but more crucial now), using SF as an absorb primarily, etc.
Unfortunately it's impossible to get a good test set from the dummy, as the vigor will make your dps meters look OP af.

Assuming you have tried both builds and considered the vigor priority, do you think this setup would be anywhere close to that of the priority you suggest? Assuming perfect mechanics and a relatively low amount of damage taken during a fight.

Also I am happy to see your suggestion for TkS vs PF. Though you provide both. Esper melee just feels weird to me. Range esper ftw!

Currently I Am not using any of the class sets as we have not been into raid to grab any, but I am wondering your thoughts on the early talk of "needing" to take T8 CB for fiendish. I never got around to testing that on the PTR before the launch and obviously I can't now. It seems like the CDs should work out to where you only need two charges cast after the finishers to keep it up, but wanted to confirm that you weren't changing to T8 CB with fiendish.

Thanks again for the great work!

Just wondering why we go for crit severity over vigor, thanks in advance!

I did testing on many different stat setups and found that the builds that focused on critical hit severity consistently were higher on test parses. Which is why i went for crit sev>vigor> multi-hit.

The set bonuses for fiendish were changed.

4 set: Fiendish: Upon generating a Psi point, gain an empower for 3 seconds.
Empower: Increases magic damage dealt by 1% per stack. stacks 5 times.

8 set: Fiendish: At 3 or more stacks of findish, your Telekinetic Strike and Psychic Frenzy deal an additional 771 magic damage to foes.

The word on the street is it is higher damage but has more RNG involved to be higher. I have not been able to get one to test however.

Hi, first of all just wanted to say thank you for this guide, it has been quite helpful, I just have a couple questions that I would love if anyone in this thread could clear up for me.

I am quite familiar with the concept with a priority rotation, is all of the rotation list listed in clear order of importance?

If so, does that mean we always cast Haunt/Reap/Spectral Swarm on CD even if it means we're at full psi points and will eat up a build up charge? Or does this fall into a sort of sub-priority where we dump our points no matter what to not waste the build up of the other abilities?

I hope I explained my question clearly, and I thank anyone for any answers they may have.

The priority that i posted is pretty close to ideal although haunt at T8 is probably more important to keep cast on cooldown because its cast can be affected by the 1 second GCD of your finisher. Also Haunt T4 gives a 6% damage increase for 5 seconds, so the better uptime is more damage. But those 3 abilities should generally always be kept on cooldown as much as possible.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by build up charge (Mental overflow stacks maybe?) With Mental Overflow amp it basically raises our Psi point cap to 7 points. Every Psi point over 5 gives a stack of Mental Overflow up to 2 stacks. Once a finisher is cast any stacks of Mental Overflow are converted to Psi points toward the next 5 point cycle. This basically allows us breathing room to spam all of our abilities on cooldown without wasting Psi Points. So you should not have issues with wasted Psi points.

I have tried everything now and I cant seem to get LUI aura to work with the haunt code you linked.

I want that 1sec show before actual cooldown is over, I can get it to do the complete normal show and hide on CD. But if I try to add that 1sec time remaining. It just stays hidden all the time or if I just use the one you linked, it stays hidden all the time. :S
