Also, I have two points in the assault tree stock strike upgrade, should those two points maybe go in the HiB upgrade in tactics instead?

I would have to agree with this. That extra 40% armor pen along with auto-crit would be more beneficial than the stockstrike buff.

I'm no expert tho, still learning the class myself

Well, I actually have played a couple post 50 specs on my BH. I started with full shield specialist, then I moved on to the parakeet, then I went fully pyro. This one is full assault(pyro) atm, it is so easy there isn't much to understand, but I think the play style for this spec may be a bit more complicated.

The fun of playing tactics is pulse generator, no idea why you would ignore it.

I didn't, I put it into actual spec, but I find that i am terrible getting it set up. Only been one night's playing thus far, but at the moment I hate this spec lol....................I know it will take more time to get a feel for it, but assault strikes me as superior at this point in time.

Any update on the spec? Is it feeling any better or what? I have a Pyro Powertech and am starting a Vanguard for the story and was really thinking of trying the Tactics tree for a different play style.

I switched back, assault/pyro is just better, tactics has a bit more utility, and it is viable, but Assault just brings it. Now I only played about 20 warzones before I switched back, i have seen people use it effectively. It has more utility than assault, but my dps was consistently a 1/3 lower with this spec.
