This guide is written for following purposes:
Finding skill rotation for maximum DPS
Finding the best enchantment for each rotations tested
This guide isn’t meant to show MR as solo class so we will ignore survivability
This also not meant to show MR as farming class if you are above lv 50 (Scarlet S) or Binder

I have lv 34 with Master Ranger as my only farming skill. Scarlet S is so far at lv50 so I will settle with this. After using 6 Mark I’m impressed by the DoT. This afternoon I check Shiminuki’s guide on that since he is a veteran in AQW community and to my surprise in his guide it is simply Mark then Boom. Just 1 Mark, no Scorch. So I start gathering data

Gathering data

Thief, Wizard, Luck
Why Thief? Shiminuki recommend either Luck for most of non-mage class due to its critical multiplier. But MR Scorch is based of Weapon damage so I will try it. .

Initial test
early research doesn’t look promising. Sure the AA dmg is higher but %crit dmg drop from not using luck at all hurt DPS. The same goes for full Wizard.
Then I try Luck. Full Luck exceed both side damage in all sector, even in AA. So I try to modify just 1 cape to Fighter. The base damage for all skill increase but not by much. Not worth the drop in crit dmg. Full Luck proven to be the to go enchantment for MR

Skill Damage
Also I discover damage modifier of this class is multiplied by Mark. The first use of Mark is 1 so the first one doesn’t change any damage of your skills, you need at least 2 stack to get a change in damage. Scorch initial damage only change after 4th stack of Mark. Finally after I discover how full Luck exceed the other in all damage, I conclude that MR damage scale with Attack Power
2 Death Mark
Deal 20% of your AA. Can crit
3 Scorch
Initial Damage = 80% AA
DoT is 1.75 from that Initial Damage, which is 45%
Okay this skill is weird. At various mark the initial damage might or not increase depending on your enchantment. With full Thief it took 4th Mark but with full Wizard the initial damage never change. In the initial run with mixed enchantment it only took 3.
4 Explosive Bolt
170% of Attack Power *amount of Mark
5 Vampiric Shot
Doesn’t contribute much unless crit

I will use 3 rotations, each tested
1) shiminuki’s 2>4
2) Full Mark: 2x6 > 354
3) middle ground: 222>3>4

Formula used
To count DPS I use my formula
Clean damage * Crit modifier
Clean damage = Base damage * skill frequency * accuracy
Also know as expected value. Last part count how many times this skill hit within a cycle (for example AA with 1.0 speed will hit 100 times in 100 second, not counting accuracy)
Crit modifier = (1 + Crit% *(Crit damage-1))
Crit only count attack that connect because only damage that connect can score crit (duh)
1 rotation will use same cycle (time). The result will be stated as damage per x second. We will total all damage coming from
This formula is simpler than these sentences above
1) shiminuki’s 2>4
Cycle: 3 seconds
1 3 times
2 1 times
3 0 times, DoT times
4 1 times
5 0 times
1 cycle with expected damage give us 587 damage per 3 second
Repeat 5 times (because the crit chance is around 20%) so we can be sure 1 crit landed: 2939 damage per 15 second

2) Full Mark: 2x6 > 354
Cycle: 30 seconds
1 21 times
2 21 times
3 3 times, DoT 12 times
4 3 times
5 3 times
1 cycle with expected damage give us 11280 damage per 30 second
Repeat 5 times (because the crit chance is around 20%) so we can be sure 1 crit landed: 56404 in 2 and half minute (I know MR is bad at surviving)

3) middle ground: 222>35>4
Cycle: seconds
1 21 times
2 19 times
3 3 times, DoT 14 times
4 7 times
5 1 times
9990 per 30 second

I conclude stacking Mark 6 times followed by a pumped Scorch, Vamp, closed with Explosion is the best. I guess Shiminuki conclude that combo because in higher level more Luck means more crit dmg, which mean Explosion become better.

-User @Abraska’s Skill Clarification and Secrets Guide (I know it is from 2015 but the buff probably only change damage %, not the overall formula
-Shiminuki’s MR video
-5 hours of my life typing and calculating all of these
I'm tired man
