hey, thanks for the video, nice of you to go the extra mile.

Since you shared your method I will share some of mine to ^^

How do you feel about slapping effect + special at the same time?

if you slap one at a time, you get about 40% chance to hit something

36% to hit the one and 4 percent to hit the other. = 40%

36% * 36% = about 13% to split after 2 boon applications as normal plan goes

but 4% to hit the other boon which is ideal as to skip a whole step.

if you slap both you get 44% to get either one then after getting one, you slap the one you missed a second time, and you get 30% chance to hit the one you missed (vs 36% if you vigour catalyst then apply 1 gum) and a 15% chance to get the same boon.

Meaning its 15% chance to split after 2 boon applications

but you get an almost 16% safety net on each following boon applications

then you can vigour cat for the third boon if you want.

in effect you use (and risk!) 1 less vigour catalyst in exchange for gums but I don’t know if this method will work for you since you use debuff boons.

My math isnt perfect as i didnt go through all permutations but my intuition tells me this is good enough to consider.

if you only want aoe and damage for a t6 hammer you dont even need the catalyst ^^ but will take a little luck near the end
