    Burst is essentially used if you want to have multiple spells/skills on one key for different weapons. So fireball/magma storm/parry disable all on one key and it will pull out the skill/spell that is used for the weapon you have equipped.

    I believe it was made obsolete with updates to the other settings. I may be wrong, but it seems like the cycle and first available will skip over skills on cooldown anyway.

    Yes, you can have for example fireball and disabling shot in the same slot as cycle and it will only trigger the relevant skill when the key is pressed.

    When I tested it there was a slight difference between burst and first available but I can't remember what it is now >_>

    Like kilrain said, Obsolete when the first changes to first available were made.

    BPG Should consider removing it.

    My understanding was that burst will always go in order- 1 2 3 4 5.
    First Available will go with the first available, based on cooldown.. 1 2 3 1 4 2 5

    No, Cycle allows you to browse through and select which spell to cast.

    Thats what I also understood:

    Burst will always go to the next spell, even if you selected another Spell slot in the meantime.

    Like if you have

    1: [Magma] [Inferno] [Exploding Charge] [...]
    2: [Impale] [Frostbite] [Dragon's Breath] [...]
    3: [Fireball] [Lightning Strike] [...]

    And do 1 ... 2 ... then next 1 will always be [Inferno], even if [Magma] is off CD already.

    Burst and FA are functionally identical in all cases (except maybe queueing all pieces of a suit of armor in 1 click?) but someone on Discord claimed that with one of them but not the other, it would highlight a skill that is on cooldown or something if nothing's available. Something like that.

    Burst seems to be much more reliable for me than first available, especially with rays.
