One of the most fun things about playing the captain is the great variety of rotation options available. In this area I will
cover a simple but extremely potent rotation for DPS support and off healing. I call it the perma crit rotation.
In red line the captain has a tier 7 trait called Master of War. A key benefit of this skill is that "Critical hits with Inspire
and Shadow's Lament will cause you and your Blade Brother's next skill to crit." This is an AWESOME buff. It last 30 seconds long
and the cooldown for shadows lament and inspire are 20 seconds and 15 seconds respectively. So if you get 1 crit from inspire or shadows lament,
you can get planned guaranteed free crits for your blade brother indefinitely.
To do this, just alternate between inspire and shadows lament to continually give yourself and your blade brother crits.
The time in between the cooldowns of these skills can be used for off healing with vocal skills, dpsing with tactical skills,
or buffing with To Arms, Telling mark, or Oathbreakers.
You will end the perma crit rotation if you use a melee or ranged skill (it will use up the free crit), however it is quite easy
to get it started again with another crit from inspire or shadows lament.
You will nerf your own dps rotation if you use this, but if you are off healing with WoC and using other skills that wont use the free crit, its very useful for your blade brother.
