Hail to the Family!
I have been asked to provide a little insight into my Musa rotation for those looking to try the new class but are unsure how to play it. While there are several guides out there and what I've noticed is they focus more on PvP rather than leveling or PvE. So I'll start by saying that this guide will focus more on leveling thru grinding.
Here are the key skills I use in my rotation:
----- Big Pull -----
Retaliation 1 - This skill is activated by holding down "Q" and is a knockdown against 7 targets. Which sets up your follow up skill Rising Storm.
Rising Storm - This skill is activated by "Moving Back + LMB + RMB" or hitting "Shift + Q" (I recommend quick slotting) and is the Musa's MUST USE skill. This skill has a follow up skill as well called Cyclone Slash.
Cyclone Slash - This skill is activated by holding down "LMB + RMB after Rising Storm" (or quick slotted). I follow up this skill with Gale.
Gale - This skill is activated by holding down "LMB + RMB" after using your default LMB skill Slice.
Whirlwind Cut - This skill is activated by holding down your "LMB and either A or D". This skill is used to quickly move around and clean up what's left while also building up your WP.
Dragon Bite - This skill is activated by "Moving Back + LMB" (I recommend quick slotting because it will interrupt Rising Storm if you activate RS via LMB + RMB rather than Shift Q). This is your Black Spirit Rage dump.
----- Small Pull -----
Carver - This skill is activated by holding "Shift + LMB" (or quick slotted). I use this skill against small groups and follow it up with Blind Thrust.
Blind Thrust - This skill is activated simple by moving forward and tapping your "Space Bar" or while performing Carver or Slice (default LMB). This skill is used to setup its follow up Nemesis Slash.
Nemesis Slash - This skill is activated by hitting "Space Bar" after Blind Thrust. This skill has an Ultimate (which i don't have yet) that will be your relief from taking so many health pots. It hits 3 times against 7 targets and heals 40 HP per hit/per mob, so that's a potential 840 HP per use (against the max 7 targets).
----- Future Skills I'm Waiting to Test -----
Blooming - Big damage and stun against 7 targets
Tiger Blade - Allows you to dual wield swords but limits the number of skills you can use; activated for 30 sec and has a 2 min 30 sec cooldown
----- Rotation -----
So the first thing I do on a big pull is circle around a group of mobs to get them into a tight circle, then hold Q to go into my Retaliation stance and wait for the knockdown (if it doesn't auto proc just tap LMB). While they are knocked down I use Rising Storm and Cyclone Slash. I follow up RS & CS with Gale and then use Wirlwind Cut to clean up what's left and quickly raise my WP. Then basically I rinse and repeat until my Black Spirit rage is full and that's when I use Dragon Bite on as big a pull as I safely can. I'll use my small pull rotation when big pulls aren't available or if I'm going against 1 or 2 purples. Once I get my Ultimate: Nemesis Slash I most likely use it against 5-7 targets to replenish my HP.
I hope this guide helps explain the Musa a little better and provides some guidance to those looking to try this class. While I love my Wizard, this Musa is by far a better class choice for me and has become my main. I encourage everyone to please add your own rotation tips and advice so we can all benefit from everyone's experiences with this amazing class.
