Some general notes:

⬥ The game runs on an internal tick system: 1t (tick) = 0.6s (seconds).

⬥ The minimum time between abilities is called the global cooldown: 1 gcd = 3t = 1.8s.

⬥ Auto attacks will only give adrenaline if they hit (splash = no adrenaline gain).

‎ ‎ ‎ ‎• Debuff spells like Vuln Vuln or Enfeeble Enfeeble or Smoke Cloud smokecloud do not given adrenaline.

⬥ Some useful sheets and resources are given below.
