Just for fun (I'm at work on my lunch, fun is relative), I thought I'd see what my top Shoot First was. I'd just emailed myself some of my latest combat logs this morning.

For reference, I'm a full optimised WH-aug scrapper talented for max dps, no hybrid nonsense. So I'm doing pretty much the biggest hits a scoundrel can hope to put out.

In the last three weeks I did 1,758 Shoot Firsts (been taking it easy and playing other games too or would have been more).

The average damage was 3,091

The highest recorded single hit of these 1,758 Shoot First s was 6,388. I suspect that was a screwy result though, because I know the player it was on and there's no way he was in anything other than WH gear himself.

Next highest hit was way back at 5,886. Now I can believe getting that if the stars aligned (warzone buff, debuffs on target, etc) on a zero-expertise sorc. I got the same guy for 5,285 with Shoot First earlier in the same wz.

Added to which, as helpfully pointed out above, you can't chain Shoot Firsts as it has a 8s cd.

So no, there is no way in SWTOR your man got hit for two 7k Shoot Firsts one straight after another. If he was the worst geared guy in the world, and the scoundrel was as lucky as can be, he might have taken two hits of 5.5k each with a gap of 8 seconds. If he was wearing recruit, he's not that guy.
It's a small world and it smells funny, I'd buy another if it wasn't for the money.

Maybe the OP has only 10k health or otherwise has for some reason removed endurance mods? I don't even thing that is possible.

Anyway. Yeah. Nerf Operatives.

(And if Bioware is listening. That is called a joke. Just wanted to be clear)

As someone who has every class to 50 and geared, I feel objective in saying that hybrid is overpowered.

I find it ironic that back when I played my assassin, hybrids got nerfed then darkness spec got OP. Now it seems darkness got nerfed and hybrids got OP again. If only mercs would have been so lucky.

Too late, no take-backsies.

After strictly only playing full darkness/hybrid for the first oh 80 valor levels (just my measure of time) and now only playing dps I can say how easy the hybrid is and with an exceptional player at the keyboard can out dps our dps specs.

Damnit!

Well. I suppose if you want a new ship, you gotta sink the first one before the insurance company will help you out.
