Why is this:MM has a smaller advantage with the ability to maintain the 15% damage boost to their serpent stings indefinitely with the way Chimera Shot refreshes percentage damage boosts. Under the 2 piece Tier 10 section? The 2 piece bonus has nothing to do with serpent sting.

It has to do with the way serpent sting's damage is calculated you want to manually refresh serpent sting whenever you have the biggest % multiplier for your damage because even after the damage boost fades serpent sting will still be using the % multiplier that was up when it was initially placed on the target. This is different than usual because with ap procs chimera shot refreshes serpent sting based on current ap. Thus it is better to manually refresh serpent sting whenever you have a % modifier to your damage.

I understand that you would want to refresh at your highest AP, but the post claims the 2-piece bonus would have an effect here. It doesn't. The 2-piece bonus says "Your Auto Shots have a 5% chance to cause you and your pet to deal 15% additional damage for 10 sec." Okay. How does this have anything to do with refreshing serpent sting? It would have something to do with the 4 piece bonus, with the AP bonus. While the 4-piece bonus says:"When your Serpent Sting and Wyvern Sting abilities deal damage, you have a 5% chance to gain 20% attack power for 10 sec."Which, obviously, you should reapply SS during the proc.

Chimera refreshes whatever % damage boost that was active on ss whenever it was cast. if you cast ss at the begining of the fight and then you get a 2p set proc you want to manually hit ss again so that the 15% damage boost will be refreshed on ss when you hit chimera
