I really don't know in what pug guild you are playing, but there is lot class synergies you can fit into a party to feed AP. Your Engi can deploy a turret which will feed lot of AP to people around it. Your Knight can even run a meh AP aura if the AP is super super low.
My whole Slayer and Choppa AoE builds are built around high AP jewelry choices so I can spam my 45 cost finishers with ease.
RP buff is static on the ground none in their right mind would stay static on slayer,
BW AP gain will reduce your dmg by 40% when used burning combustion
destro have the exact same morales
destro have the exact same pots
destro have the exact same jewelery.
engis suck for city
knight AP aura is 20 ap per 5 SECONDS and chosens have exactly the same
So all this to counter 1 shammy ability with no mirror in order.
Man you really failed bad at maths at school right?
P.S.: which guild were u in you said? we might turn to destro if order zerg takes heart and I need to know where to find ya to prove my point.
tell your RP to predict where the main fight will be so most of the party can receive the AP rune, easy
BW will do instant Nova/Sear to get back the lost resource, your dmg drop is minor and last 1s
Good Engi does fine in city, they need good situation awareness and can still initiate fights with pulls as well solid arsenal of debuffs.
Knight aura is last resort, if somehow the WP+RP in your party aren't enough for you with their nonstop AP feeds.
I am assuming you are somehow facing a horde of Shamans that somehow all live long enough to reach M3 with that 100 AP drain which you can counter with 1 AP pot, and then they rotate the next M3 which you again counter with AP pot... (why are they using M3s on you is a mystery considering normally they use M2 to keep their parties alive against proper Order warband dmg outputs)
Or are they ST draining you nonstop? Because AM does the same. Or is it the Mara AP drain? You would need 3-4 Maras hitting same targets nonstop to make it function, in which case it is a valid strategy to use, but means less dmg done overall due to picking debuffing over dmg approach.
If the enemy is stacking shamans, their total healing output will diminish due to lack of Doks and Zealots. So I have hard time trying to understand how in the hell some shamans are somehow rotating m3s on your slayer nonstop.
I'm at 43 AP/sec regen on Slayer, most of time zero issues with AP, I could go maybe up to 47 but that might be excessive.
If you are hitting abilities nonstop, you do not leave enough time for your AP to recover between GDC use, meaning you need to wait 1.3-1.5s between ability use instead of spamming then nonstop. The AP regen cycle is not in sync with GCD cycle, you need to hold occasionally with the button smashing and ability queueing if you want to prevent from dropping to 0 AP.
you already know in what guild I am in if you have read this thread at all
