Thanks for reading my guide. This is not meant to be something you have to do on paper. This is more of something you can rethink and create new ideas for Marksmanship. Going to quote the wise wizard, KBN, here:

I seriously think you've got it wrong about Stroke of Genius. The burst it gives on every second pair of snipes is great. It does take practice to use and I use it before my second snipe rather then my first as it's easier on the muscle memory.

You gave it a 1/10 PvE but it deserves much higher.

A player should be changing utilities to best match their fight but those 1.5 seconds you shave off every rotation using Stroke of Genius do add up.

Regarding stats, I'll note that in theory it could make sense for marksmanship to take some Aim instead of Cunning. The only ability Aim doesn't benefit is Corrosive Dart, and it will provide more ranged crit chance per point than Cunning because of the rapidly diminishing returns to crit chance from mainstat.

Whats with the a,b,c,d with alacrity? Is that gear tier based?

But isn't Pulse a 1 GCD move, and GCD being 1.5 seconds, the same as the activation time on Snipe?
