Ah yes I remember the first hybrid build when you did not need lightning charge to proc raze...that was awesome.

If I crit my first two attacks on a 1k Exp target it would be somewhere around:

ShootFirst > 5.5K damage
Backblast > 5k damage
Flechette (6 second duration) > 4k

This is a burst Open: flechette, shootfirst, backblast combo.

So a recruit in 14-15k Health can technically be 2 shot, and flechette is the lube. Most people when attacked by Operative/scoundrel just see there health drop so fast 6 seconds can seem like 2 globals.

Technically that's 3 shots and the 3rd is 28% of his health.

Nope it's 2, flechette is not an an attack, and until I can just cast flechette on someone without shootfirst or backblast that won't change.

Flechette benefits 2 scoundrel attacks, like hitting someone with an 8 ounce glove on vs bare fist, it's still only one hit.

Well, if you're going to wait for Flechette Round to wear off you might as well call it a 5-shot., because that's how many GCD's you'll have to wait for.

SF to start, then four more abilities while you wait for Flechette to do all its damage.

Still not close to a 2-shot. And like I said, you're not going to see many 5.5k Shoot Firsts (or 5k Back Blasts) on someone with 1000 expertise. You're talking something like 16-17% mitigation at that level.
It's a small world and it smells funny, I'd buy another if it wasn't for the money.

I see it almost every day, and you can't compare GCD time to # of attacks. Assassins can use crushing darkness instant on a proc(madness tree) which has an initial hit with a few second dot attack for a total amount of damage...this is still one attack.

Did the OP unsub as a result? That's the real question.
