  • Move forward before . You lose time waiting for the movement portion of this skill.
  • Keep one charge of Flicker Step for when you charge Dragon Slash—Force after to close the gap.

Use one charge of Triggerguard during Dragon Slash—Force to better maintain stacks.

Due to 's Cooldown, you should use Flicker Step early on the first of the Double Dragon Slash Loop, then late on the second . On Sword & Dragon Slash loops, use Flicker Step as late as possible while charging .
