Unlike APB (30s cooldown), which gets applied to the target just by firing at them.
So to recap:
1) Resistance with no one shooting you is wasted.
2) A debuff that is only applied when a target is shooting you is wasted when no one is shooting you.
3) If you want mitigation, you're probably better off with Attack Pattern Omega which grants damage, speed, turn, immunity to movement debuffs, immunity to disable debuffs, +defense and +resistance. It's also on a 45s cooldown.
I never said I don't run APB.
I have APA, APB, ABD,
APO. I'm not sure how I managed all four, but I have them, and I use all of them even in PvE. APD gets used
I've drawn a group's aggro (or in PvP when the other team goes "GET THE ESCORT" and jumps me lol). The others get used whenever I need them, and I do use APB and APO more often that APD. But each of them have their place.
Demons run when a good man goes to war.
