By using Fight or Flight late into the GCD (just before the next GCD), it is possible to fit 11 physical GCDs into the buff window.

400 potency (magical).

Provides 5 stacks of Requiescat, granting instant casts and increasing the potency of Holy Spirit, Holy Circle, and enabling the use of Confiteor.
