I'd like to think that I'm using rotation and priority system somewhat accurate, albeit screwing up a bit in this parse. I noticed that I have a very low APM http://parsely.io/parser/view/201706
So, here's my cry for help ;-;
Yup, your accuracy is a tad high, but your biggest problem is your low apm, you should be hitting around 36-37 at least, and once you do, you'll find yourself needing to use rapid shots and your energy management buttons.

Are you clicking or using keybinds? If you are clicking, I would swap over to keybinds asap.

Always been using keybinds, I imagine I'd be even worse if I didn't ^^
I'll try to sort gear a bit better, but I have no idea how to fix apm issue

Practice, practice, practice I'm afraid...

Also, one thing to keep in mind is that you don't actually have to wait for the GCD to end to hit the next ability. There is a setting (defaulted to .5 seconds) that basically lets you "queue" abilities before the end of the gcd by that amount of time. So if you hit heatseeker missle off, you can then hit high impact bolt basically right away instead of waiting for the gcd to end. It will take some work to get the timing down, but it is definitely worth it to make sure there is only 1.5 seconds between each ability (you seem to hover around 2 seconds between each activation, that's why I asked about if you were clicking).

for pve and parsing you need 684 acc as a minimum to have 110% accuracy.

Ah this is a good point. When you had said 111 accuracy, I'd assumed you meant 111%, but if you meant 111 points, you do need 684 accuracy points.

Oh, I'm sorry I wasn't clear, I indeed meant 111%.
Thank you for your replies, going to practice more ^^

Technically still IO but it's not worh it. The difference is marginal (only visible on dummy parses tbh) and the heat management and target swapping is much worse. For any actual playing, go arsenal.

Arsenal is good for now. IO supposed to be better for single boss fights but almost no difference.
