ROTATION

It’s no secret that Stamplars currently have a simple and effective rotation right now. But how simple it is may surprise you!

  • Step 1: Start on the Backbar
    Endless Hail > Barbed Trap
    ESO Skills endless hail > ESO Skills Barbed Trap (only reapply barbed trap when it falls off. It is on both bars so if it falls off while you are on the front bar, reapply it there)

  • Step 2: Swap to Front Bar
