Gameplay & Rotations
Keep your opponents as debuffed as possible. This will make it harder for them to dispell a real CC. Land crits on your enemies to get an instant Flash of Light with The Art of War procs. Use Judgement to get a proc, since it has a high crit chance.
Don’t use Holy Light since it costs too much mana, and it has a long cast-time, making it vulnerable to interruption. Remember, that healing can also be done with Divine Storm.
If you’re looking forward to bursting down your enemy then try to use Avenging Wrath and your trinkets at the same time. Save some spells for that moment and cooperate with your team.
Here is a list of preferable partners in the 2v2 and 3v3 arena.
