What Shot Rotation do I use for Survival in PvE?
Rapid Fire/Blood Fury/Trinket > Serpent Sting > Kill Shot > Explosive Shot > Aimed Shot > Steady Shot
Note: Come 3.0.8 Kill Shot will be on a 15 sec cooldown. This will help make Kill Shot a more interesting ability once a bosses health is lower than 20%.
What Shot Rotation do I use when Lock and Load procs?
Explosive Shot - Steady Shot - Explosive Shot - Steady Shot - Explosive Shot
Note: You could replace a Steady Shot with an Aimed Shot or a Serpent Sting if it has expired.
Explosive Shot - 0.5 sec - Explosive Shot - 0.5 sec - Explosive Shot
Note: Waiting for .5 sec in between ES shots is to ensure that your ES gets 3/3 ticks. The reason the 2nd rotation exists is that it allows you to gain almost one whole Explosive Shot in your full rotation every L&L proc. This is because your ES starts its cooldown on the 3rd ES after a L&L proc.
I also like the 2nd rotation because half the time your L&L procs right after an ES, and since L&L does not reset the CD on ES, you have to wait 6 seconds before you can even begin the L&L rotation. This leaves you about 6 seconds, at worst, to complete the rotation.
