Funnelling Simming

Funnelling is where you gain a high amount of single target damage by dotting smaller targets.

A prime example of a fight this tier would be Orgozoa. During the fight the small adds are alive long enough for you to DoT them, allowing you to gain massive boss damage.

Elemental does this by flame Shocking extra targets. Because of Igneous Potential and Lava Shock we gain huge amounts of single target damage from applying multiple flame Shocks.

Funnelling requires a very specific way to sim it correctly as adding more targets with the base APL will calculate it using Chain lighting and Earthquake.

This video shows you how to sim funnelling, as well as a link to the Custom APL needed for it.

Funnelling this tier is used on Orgozoa, Queens Court and Azshara. However, Azshara CAN'T be simmed this way, as the fight also has pure single target moments. For Azshara just follow my boss specific stats in the Raid Bosses section.
