Notes

  • Potency is 600 prior to learning the Pictomancy Mastery II.png  Pictomancy Mastery II trait. It continues to increase upon learning subsequent traits at higher levels.

Trivia

  • When pictomancer was originally released in patch 7.0, it was approximately a 1% DPS gain to skip casting Thunder in Magenta and cast Water in Blue.png  Water in Blue instead, as the higher potency of Thunder in Magenta did not outweigh the loss of palette gauge, which was gained from casting Water in Blue. Players have therefore developed unconventional rotations where they clicked off or used a macro to remove the Subtractive Palette or Aetherhues II buffs. This has been acknowledged as unintended by Square Enix, and potencies will be adjusted in patch 7.01 to make this no longer optimal.
