My merc heals talent build. Alacrity is just going to force you to overheat in PvE, mercs have a very delicate rotation as it is.

Same spec as "Double Dipping Alacrity". Thanks for the post though, I've seen your guide before.

personally, i'll take that over 3% crit. i use PS, UL, and CM quite often in PvP.
That's 6% crit total, 3% ranged, 3% tech. You don't need stabilizers because you are designed as a kiting class, keep your distance, keep moving always.

Not taking alacrity risks your targets dying if they are taking consistent damage because you are not able to pump out enough heals in time. With critical alacrity rolling, i have 1.7 second healing scan, 1.2 second rapid scan. Your rotation does not change with or without alacrity, you do 2x casts that cost 16 heat each, then you use 1-2 rapid shots.

and i use Power shot, Unload, and CM quite often in PvP.

i like to hide behind pillars, LoS, and hide...when i get jumped, or when i get noticed, then i run and kite.

to each his own.

Totally disagree. Yes a pyro has to keep moving but your main dps mechanic is dependent on powershot. You need stabilizers to make sure you get the powershots off or your dps goes in the tolet crit or no crit. Although this is a solid guide for pve you made a handful of mistakes on the pvp side and just seem to dismiss anyone that has a counter point. t-assassin is probably one of the best merc pyro "theorycrafters" on the forum and one of the best merc pyro pvp'ers in the game. Dismissing him is just silly. I can make up that crit bonus easily in gear and buffs and hit the soft caps no problem. But I can't get push back protection unless I take stabilizers
