You lose a bit of damage on rail shot, but you gain 3 seconds of 25 percent damage reduction.
Hm, I'm assuming there's a typo seeing how we don't benefit from 2 pc eliminator at all. Did you mean 2 piece PvP Combat medic? That would be another 3 seconds for a total of 18 seconds when combined with 2pc PvE Supercommando. If the super energy shield is what you were referring to, I would absolutely kill for rebounder.

On a completely unrelated note (and I feel REALLY stupid for asking this), does anyone know exactly how large the cone is? I mean, I know it has a range of 10 m, but how far does it extend from left to right at 10 m? Even after playing with this build for a few days, I can't really figure it out (our graphic isn't as distinct as Vanguard's version of Flamethrower). I also can't be 100% certain, but it sometimes feels like I'm hitting targets to the side and even slightly behind me. I'm pretty sure this is true bc I found out the hard way that even a carefully positioned flamethrower is really hard to safely use on the shield phase of Stormcaller and Firebrand.

Yeah you caught my error. It's two piece Combat Medic plus 2 piece Combat Tech bonus. This is what I use. You get the bonus shield plus the stats are pretty close. You will have to sub out one of the mods to get rid of the Alacrity.

I have no idea about the cone shape with the way the game's server reacts in pvp you just can't tell unless you do a test on three guys having each stand at different positions you would then test it. However, both the PFT and the Pulse Cannon have the same raidus but the Pulse cannon shows it better. Sometimes people will run through your flame thrower, but you won't know it until you see them slowed beside you.

I hate that one boss in the FP with the three robots and the reflective shields. On my Scoundrel and on my AP I am always getting hammered.

I think It's 10m length and 5m width, not sure though. I've specced back to AP for 2 days. I'm really missing RS burst and I think the DPS of AP depends on the number of targets you encounter. The flexibility of Extreme Prototype made me spec back. The only downside in this spec is reaching high numbers with RS, but the heat management is better and conducive to maximize all skills.

Vanguard forum has a thread on this spec utilizing no pft/pulse generator. (terminal velocity)

Rb is a good component, gotta maximize the value of the slows and hydraulic override. I switched to this from 2/31/10 and while you're a little less durable, it is more efficient & slammy than the combustible cylinder adv prot spec. You lose a lot if/when you want to use ion cell, that's the other drawback I have found. Still undecided but enjoying the playstyle.
