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
numbers rounded but based on the forge simulator by mayumi.
