NEW ROTATION( U need to have the cultivation on vanguard blessing takes 5 cultivation points)(+15% increase damage):Crippling bolt>Vanguard blessing>Fearless>Indomitable will>Sundering steel
or if u want to maximize it with Bleed + Smite:Crippling bolt>Vanguard blessing>Fearless>Indomitable will>Sundering steel>Smite
How to deal damage in PVE ( rotations )
In almost any fight u will want to start out with this rotation:Crippling Bolt>Fearless>Indomitable Will>Sundering Steel>Sweep ( this rotation will make ur bleed stacks start ticking from the start at maximum possible damage and to maintain high dps u will want to maintain the bleed stacks throughout the whole fight)
As the fight goes on u will move onto your main rotation ( most damage rotation ):Crippling bolt>Fearless>Indomitable Will>Sundering Steel>Smite (u will need some practice to maximize the most possible dps out of this rotation)
If u have the fearless at maximum level which is currently 18 ( 21 sec cooldown ) and u own the last cultivation it will DECREASE the cooldown of the skill each time u CRIT an enemy opponent,now what makes this morph so great is u will get to throw in an in between rotation which is similar to the first one I wrote it looks something like this:Fearless>Indomitable>Crippling Bolt>Sundering Steel>Holy Vortex if u time ur skills correctly once u have used this rotation ur smite should take a few more seconds before using it (your fearless will also get off cooldown since u have the last morph)
Main priority MAINTAIN BLEED STACKS,time ur smite correctly accordingly to the situation example:
(when the boss is casting an animation and u know he won’t be moving)

Soul Grid:The reason why I chose this path instead of the crit path is because your damage will mostly come from physical damage + all the armor u can ignore from the opponent ( Physichal defense break ) + with the right cultivation and gear u won’t need the extra crit anyway
Minimal Soulgrid level needed for activation of the level 2 stats
Moon Crystal IV x2
Sun Crystal VI x3
Sky Crystal IV x2
Time Crystal IV x1
Death Crystal VI x2
Birth Crystal IV x1
Spectre Crystal VI x1
Hard Chaos Crystal IV ( Middle Crystal )
The best optimal daos u will want if u can afford them.
Sundering Steel (for pvp u would want to first prioritize maxing out the green dao and then move onto red dao) this is a great skill for finishing of targets with 50% hp or less
Smite (I currently have 4x dao's into red and orange, optimaly u would want 5x red 5x orange , red for the damage increase while orange reduces special skill cost) if u are unable to get high daos into this skill prioritize special skill reduction u will get to ur rotation much faster and u will have much more dmg like this)
Holy Vortex (For mass pvp u should use full blue which is for cooldown reduction,for pve u would want to prioritize full red and then move onto blue)
Indomitable Will (Firstly prioritize cooldown reduce dao and then move onto damage,do not forget this skill removes all CC from u once u use it so it's better to keep it at low cooldown + it gives a good attack boost)
Shield Storm (Prioritize damage reduction and move onto cooldown reduction will help alot in pvp especially when u want to use fearless + pull u will not insta die if u use shield storm)
Gear selection ( stat priority )
U will want to firstly get your base crit to at least 40 or 45% and then fully convert to crit increment, reason being on why u do not want more crit is because u have your shield morph which boosts ur crit by additional 15% of what u already have and most of your burst skills will be used with fearless which gives additional 30% crit chance of ur base crit and that is more then enough,the crit increment will give u a huge damage boost.
Try to roll all ur green stats (rings,necklace,off hand,wepon) into crit incriment % it will take some time but sooner or later u will get to it
I suggest that u get x2 scour dungeon earrings, they are really cheap and their base stat is with crit,the other earings from demonslayer or demonslayer do not have this stat.
Venerations (best possible stats) just gonna state the ones that give dps increase
Main hand (x2 base crit + crit %)
Off hand (x2 base crit increment + crit increment %)
Rings (x2 base crit + crit %)
Necklace (x2 crit increment + crit increment %)
Boots (x2 strenght,not sure if it can roll x3 strenght role)
Bracers(x2 strenght, not sure if it can roll x3 strenght role)

PVP GodGuard - Album on Imgur (daos,stats,skill allocation)
Stats: prntscr.com/fhspqpi usualy run this stats but if I had 60 cultivation points I would change it to 200 strength 90 spirit 90 vigor 70 dexterity to maximize the talent of 60 cultivation points (HP++)
Cultivations: from 41 points
Cultivations for 60 points:
Rotation for killing almost anyone in 1 shot:Leap>fearless>crippling bolt>sundering steel and if that didn’t kill the target u were aiming for u can even add a pull on the end this is recommended
For mass pvp if u wanna get that beautifull 10 man pull here is what you wanna do,I usually let other vg’s first do their pull or sm’s do their darkmoon ( enemies use anti cc to escape from it ) then you jump in 3 seconds.
Do not forget if u have ur shield storm up USE IT otherwise u will probably get 1 shot do I still recommend jumping in even though u don’t have your shield storm,Yes most definetly but try to communicate with your team example if an SM says he is gonna do Darkmoon that is the perfect opportunity for you to jump in pull and smite
Rotations of a pull:So u wanna get that sweet spot of maximimum possible people into your pull ( 10 people ) now depending on the situation if u wanna pull the enemy backline or frontline here are some rotations u can achieve this with:
If u wanna get to enemy backline and be efficient ( damage wise ) first u will want to stack fury to at least 100+ and then u will take action.Now this is a situation where I assume u are stuck in combat and this rotation will maximize your range of getting to the enemy backline:
Roll>roll>leap on an enemy who is in the middle of the enemy raid>blazing charge into enemy backline>Fearless>Indomitable Will>Holy Vortex>Smite ( do not forget if you have shield storm use it before you do this otherwise you are not gonna have that much fun,so this is the maximum possible range of getting to an enemy backline,)
Quick and efficient pull without smite but with a lot of cc
Shield storm(if u have it)>Leap>Fearless>Indomitable will>Holy Vortex>Conquerer sweep the lot u just pulled roll behind them and use blazing charge this will knock down every enemy for 3 seconds with dealing damage+you will push them towards your team where they will quickly wipe them.
Pull with damage but without smite:
Fearless>Indomitable will>Holy vortex>Conquerer sweep>Crippling bolt,this rotation is used for quickly bursting a lot of enemies if your smite is not available the reason u wanna do conquerer sweep into a crippling bolt is because targets need to be knocked down in order to get +38% dmg on your Crippling bolt cultivation.
Soon i will post of pvp videos
