At 3 seconds, AB1 ABr would become an easily attainable, stable, reliable rotation. It would also allow us to have a reliable mana positive rotation, which is something that I feel blizzard does not want.
Instead, I feel blizzard wants your "mana positive" rotation to be something which is inherently unreliable, but something we gain access to by capitalizing on "good RNG".
What is "good RNG"? Say you find that you are getting lucky with AM procs, you can use AB1 AM AB1 ABr cycles to gain some mana (every so slightly). This is good gameplay.
In short, I feel a reduction of ABrs cooldown to 4 seconds is probably the best bet, since it does not allow AB1 ABr to be a reliable rotation in realistic scenarios.
Either that, or have ABr's cooldown be affected by haste so that even with 4pc t11, AB2 ABr remains reliable.
It appears that Blizzard has listened to Logix and Kavan and reduced the cooldown on ABarr to 4 sec.
Btw, you two have done great job working the numbers; I enjoy the back and forth analysis, even if it's way above me.
