  • Target casters; primarily those that will have long-casting skills or will be a danger to your success, and begin hitting them with your attack skills.
  • Do not spam the interrupts randomly, no matter how tempting it may be. Wait until the target is using a skill before interrupting it, otherwise you could be left with them recharging when an opportunity comes up.
