Rotation & Cooldowns (2.8.2)
A rotation is a system for ordering your abilities in a way that maximizes your damage, threat or healing. Mastering a rotation will help you to quickly prioritize abilities during actual encounters so that you will always have the highest possible output as a(n) Gunnery spec Commando (Trooper).
Single target rotations are designed for maximum damage, threat or healing on one target at a time. Single target rotations are more effective the longer you are able to focus on the same target.
Burst cooldowns are used to increase your damage, threat or healing for a brief period of time.
Survivability cooldowns help keep you alive and provide relief to healers.
