Need some help with Lethality Rotation

So I'm going to try Lethality and have one problem. I have way too many buttons to press with the addition of Weakening blast, Cull, and Corrosive grenade to the rotation. I would guess a few of my core Marksmanship abilities get cut from the rotation, but which ones? What happens to Snipe, Series of Shots, Shatter Shot, and Ambush in a sniper's rotation when going Lethality?

1) Simple Rotation:

Corr Grenade - Corr Dart - Weakening Blast - Cull - Series of Shots - X - Cull

X = Should be Snipe (WITH LAZE TARGET ONLY - 1 min cd) or
x = Ambush or
x = Explosive Probe

X = can change depending on your situation, sometimes you can put Weakening Blast there down the line when it becomes available, sometimes you will do Exp Probe when you need to be mobile, sometimes you do not want to cast Ambush because it will cap you at 100 energy for too long. These things you will learn with practice and more experience.



2) If Orbital Strike is up (and you don't have Adrenaline Probe to give you back energy) you can put it here:

Corr Grenade - Corr Dart - Weakening Blast - Cull - ORBITAL STRIKE - Rifle Shot(s) - Cull



2.a) If you have enough energy from DoT crits you can even do:

Corr Grenade - Corr Dart - Weakening Blast - Cull - Series of Shots - ORBITAL STRIKE - Rifle Shot - Cull


3) Armor Debuff:

Refresh Shatter Shot whenever you can if you don't have a Juggernaut or Arsenal Merc keeping their armor debuff up. You can use it anywhere in your rotation.


If you have any questions re: http://i.imgur.com/bRTcy.jpg let us know.

Lol dam you paowee for making a good response. My normal rotation is similar to paowee's

Cdart>Cnade>ShatterShot>WBlast>Cull>____(usually SoS or Orbital)____>Cull.....

I use RifleShot here and there to help regen energy and sometimes Acquiring Target with SoS or Ambush and only use AProbe when my energy is below 30%

>_<; I keep forgetting to put SS. Well imo it should be up (an armor pen i mean), a hundred percent of the time. if it falls off, just put it back up again! and if there's a jugg or arsenal merc in your raid (hitting your target) you might not need to use SS at all.

Shatter shot usage really depends on who is in your raid group as you said. If you have someone who normally armor debuffs as part of their rotation (e.g., arsenal mercs, juggs, etc.) then it can/should be omitted.

In pvp, i don't think it's worth delaying cull to apply it unless you want the trama debuff.
