I finally decided to level up my WAR recently, and still learning each skills. As always, I look around some online guide/rotation for the class, and I came across a few, and including a post in this forum. ( http://ffxivrealm.com/threads/the-best-opening-rotation.11376/#post-163195 ) It was suggested the very good rotation, which I can simply just memorize the rotation and use it, however, I rather understand why each skill is used in this particular order. I asked in the thread if poster could explain for me but haven't heard from him.. so decided to put this question up here. Here is the rotation Tomahawk > Heavy Swing > Skull Sunder > Butcher's Block > Heavy Swing > Maim > Storm's Eye > Vengeance > Heavy Swing > Unchained > Skull Sunder > Berserk > Butcher's Block > Brutal Swing > Heavy Swing > Internal Release > Maim > Storms Eye > Heavy Swing > Skull Sunder > Butcher's Block > Inner Beast. If someone pro WAR is kind enough to break them down and explain reasoning behind the rotation, I'd be much appreciated!
