I only ask about a Hybrid spec because I see that a point in Power shield (Bodyguard tree) makes you immune from interrupts. Does it work in PvP? If so....would any build suffer without using Heatseeker(Arsenal) or T.Detonator(Pyro)?

Arsenal would be horrible without heatseeker. It's my finishing hit most of the time and vital for what pathetic mobility the spec has. Theoretically, Arsenal would benefit most from it, if it weren't for that.

Pyro takes a significant hit in their single target damage, and at the same time, benefits least from it, since they don't use many channelled attacks (power shot is horrible).

Hmmm....makes sense...so possibly Merc is suited to be a medic using pyro/arsenal as support for team healing. Looking in the Bodyguard tree, it seems to have more than 1 skill that helps damage. Odd that none of the other AC's with medical abilities has them.

Basically, there is no viable hybrid spec for merc.
