AP: HEGC or CGC?

I've been eyeballing the AP tree and was just wondering if you AP guys out there run with the High Energy cylinder or the Combustible cylinder?

I know the AP tree has the additions like venting heat and movement speed additions to it through skill points, but I do love the DoT from the combustible.

you want a random chance at a small DoT at the expense of 8% elemental damage and -8heat every 6sec?

Good luck.

Well, when you put it like that. LOL

Was unsure of the exact amounts it offered since I didn't look too hard at the information and talents and heard people in game saying that CGC was still better no matter what spec you were. o.O

It's actually a 100% chance at a DoT with 3 points in bursting flame (first tier talent). However, managing heat is made especially difficult without a procced or passive heat sink. Seeing as how FT is a high heat generating ability you would be better off using HEGC unless you want to constantly micromanage your heat.

There is an AP sticky.

Basically to do most DPS you go CGC but you're heat management is a *****.

To not worry about heat but do a bit less dps, HEGC.
