I'm a new assassin playing full deception for PVP, full WH BiS and I realized Madness is way better for PVE.
I have a mara as a main, I use annihilation because of the sustain damage.
It's hard to pay attention on all procs in your buffs bar, sometimes you don't see a proc, so I was paying attention on my char animations and I saw some efects when the proc happens.
What did you guys do to manage the maul and crushing darkness procs?
Do You prefer to look at your buffs bar or your char animation?
The cooldown of Death Field, Discharge and Creeping Terror with some practice you can manage to always keep up your dots without looking at your skills bar. The buff from shock is very important to keep up, to help your maul and Thrash.
Madness is the hardest build I ever played, I have 7 50's, neither Anni mara's has a bunch of "rules" to follow. I'm not complaining, I just want to see some thoughts.
