How about you try it and *then* tell us about it rather than the other way around? Better yet, how about you try it and then *not* tell us about it, as you're not going to be able to figure out anything conclusive anyway. And we don't care about your WoL epeenery either.

2) PVE isn't about burst, it's about high sustained. As mentioned above, KS before you pop AR lets your increased CP generation during AR work towards reducing your KS cooldown, potentially giving you an extra KSpree for the encounter.
I did do it your way before, but I always felt that it was really tight, and a lucky string of combat potency procs could easily energy cap me during KSpree, since you don't really have time to bleed off excess energy before Bandit's falls.
I've been consistently ranking on WoL, so I feel pretty confident that the way I'm doing it works well. I'm certainly open to improving that, but I did it your way for a while, and was never really happy with it.
I see your point. I myself Have been getting ranked on WoL to. 12th Heroic Magmaw, 22nd heroic chime, 3rd on heroic Nef. Those being my top rankings. I gonna try out your opener for a few weeks see how much higher i can keep my sustain at.
