Thread: Core Tap 950 setups

  1. Default Core Tap 950 setups

    What are your core tap setups and thoughts on why you picked those spells?

    I am currently using the following, but always looking for better options with less mana cost. Currently hunting in OTF if that matters.

    incant 950 410 917 903 903 903 519

    10+34+8+8+8+38-50=56+50=106 mana (not including water lore bonus, 89 with my water lore)

    410 to prone, rt, lower def
    917 for continuous crit cycles
    903 for cheap high damage
    519 continuous damage just in case need to clean up anything left alive

    BTW does anyone use voodoo? Have you found a way to have your alias stance to offense/guarded with core tap when needed? Seems like it won't stance up for the steam hits.

    I set macros so I have a 950 setup for each of the basic elemental bolts (906,907,910,510) using "stomp" before the cast E.g.

    .950f = stomp, stance off, inc 950 906 906 906 906 906 906, stance def.

    .905c = stomp, stance off, inc 950 907 907 907 907 907 907, stance def.

    There are very few situations where throwing expensive spells like 917 into the mix is worth it over just spamming a bolt.

    My non-bolting mage just makes use of 950 917 502 502 502 502 502.

    I don't even bother with it on my bolting mage. Too lazy to set something up.

    Hmm, for RP a .950doom could be fun. E.g...

    inc 525, stomp, stance off, inc 950 912 914 519 519 917 510 ?

    Hope you want to RP having sad meteors because everything will be dead by the time they start hitting.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I decided to go with this setup which comes to 53 mana with my water lore or 74 without.

    INCANT 950 917 903 903 903 903 903

    I figured I can throw in an ewave if needed before casting core tap so I get an extra steam in. Also dropped 519 to bring mana costs down.

    For now I am only 1x in harness power so I don't hunt with core tap regularly. Just the oh sh.. moments so keeping EFury in there for now.

    Has anyone used cold snap extensively and how does it compare to ewave?

    Also bluecenterlight you have stomp in your commands. What is that setup to do?

    The stomp is for using a charge of channeled 909(tremors). The EBP penalty is very useful in reducing the critters dodging our bolts.

    Also, remember 950 doubles the cost of single target spells, so INCANT 950 917 903 903 903 903 903 is really

    34 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 = 64 without any water lore bonus and assuming the 903 is minor water.

    I might be wrong but 903 is this case is minor steam which costs 4 mana.

    So wouldn't it be 34 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 66

    Ah shoot you are correct...I knew that and was still charging 917 as an AoE spell. Doh!

    With my water lore bonuses these are my costs. This is with using steam for 903 (4 mana). So with not that much more mana cost I can use some different spells.

    INCANT 950 903 903 903 903 903 903 = 50 mana

    INCANT 950 410 903 903 903 903 903 = 50 mana

    INCANT 950 917 903 903 903 903 903 = 53 mana

    INCANT 950 410 917 903 903 903 903 = 57 mana


    So now need to do more testing with tremors and cold snap!
