Hi,...

Thanks for the guide. I have been working with your suggestions and I have a couple thoughts:

(1) I run out of energy before the 5 minute mark;

(2) there isn't much room in the rotation for add switching and boss mechanics.

Unless these issues are addressed, I can't see this rotation being functional outside of dummy practice.

What is your crit chance at? Your energy comes from your dots in this spec so if you ain't critin you ain't killin.

Sure target swapping is kinda rough in this spec but its not impossible, maybe just leave out IP at the initial swap for the sake of energy? Not the most familiar with the spec so I don't know exactly

I believe you are having a problem during the AMBUSH portion of the rotation. Remember if you do not have enough energy use this time to cast Rifle Shot / Shatter Shot. I honestly rarely use AMBUSH because I would rather do Lazed Snipe / RS / recast my Shatter Shot debuff. Also I made a change in the rotation. To easier sustain it (practicing on the dummy) you start with:

IP - CG - Rifle Shot - CD - Rifle Shot if needed - CULL - SoS - Lazed Snipe / Shatter Shot - Rifle Shot - Cull. Repeat.

Use Ambush in place of Lazed Snipe or Shatter Shot if you have enough time.
It is ok to cast Cull if you have 82-84 energy. If you do not have 82-84 energy you should use Rifle Shot.

Thanks for the info. I'll keep practicing with the spec and will try it on some of the 1-target operation bosses after I get it down. Here are my stats; I'm open to comments:

Unbuffed with no stims.

Dmg: 1084-1185
Bonus dmg: 629.9
Acc 99.89
Crit::36.49 (Crit Rating: 384)
Crit Mult: 75.82

Currently ~261 Crit Rating. My accuarcy is 100/110% Ranged/Tech. The rest I dump into Power (power mods and power/surge enhancements) with Cunning augments.

what on earth is your crit percent at that high of crit rating i rock a substantially lower amount of crit and am at 36% crit fully buffed. and what would you suggest 300 or 350 seems like 250-300 would be more optimal for me.

Too much crit rating. Get it down to 350. Ive seen parses of 2k+ snipers with crit rating from 250 to 350. Personal preference.
