Going in, I suspect that the 30 sec test, the Assault will beat TV but I'm not so certain in the 1 and 3 minute tests. Assault definately has better burst but sustained damage over time, we'll see. Stay tuned will have results up shortly.
No point in worrying about it until they get done tweaking the trees. The pts saw a decent nerf to tactics and hybrid specs today.
K'mpek/Keypek or some variation
55s=1 of everything. Vanguard main.

Here are the notes.

Tactics
•Combat Tactics has been redesigned: While High Energy Cell is active, damage dealt by Stockstrike makes the next High Impact Bolt an automatic critical hit. The Vanguard skill tree has been rearranged, making Combat Tactics require Cell Generator instead of Serrated Blades.

•Charged Loaders no longer increases ranged critical chance.

•Blaster Augs now further improves the internal and elemental damage done while High Energy Cell is active by 1% (down from 3%).

•Havoc Training now increases Gut critical damage, but no longer increases Ion Pulse critical damage.


Assault Specialist (Vanguard)
•Assault Plastique has been redesigned. The Trooper now throws a moldable plastic explosive that sticks to the target and detonates after several seconds, exploding for kinetic damage and burning the target for elemental damage over 12 seconds. Standard and weak enemies enter a state of panic when the explosive attaches and are knocked down when it explodes.

•Assault Trooper (Vanguard) no longer increases the critical damage done by Charged Bolts, but now increases the critical damage done by Ion Pulse.

•Rain of Fire (Vanguard) no longer increases Full Auto damage to burning targets.

It is a sad day for those of us who have enjoyed the Hybrid for the past 10 months, seeing as these changes made it impossible to achieve. The nerfs as of the 14th officially gutted(see what I did there?) the Terminal Velocity spec =( Although I guess we shouldn't be too surprised with the numbers it was putting out on the PTS... It was fun while it lasted though, yeah?

However, unless Tactics/AP gets its nerfs rolled-back and receives real buffs(ones tied to High-Energy Cell/Cylinder realistically), I fear that purists(full Tactics/AP) will find themselves using an un-playable spec; not allowed in the competitive scene whatsoever.

Here's to the future; may it be brighter than what is currently on the horizon for VG/PTs.

It's a shame. The VG's had some great hybrid builds destroyed by BW/EA/QQ-ing. It sucks.

R.I.P. Iron Fist
R.I.P Carolina Parakeet (one of my favs)
R.I.P. Terminal Velocity (I really hope this does not happen and it's still viable in 2.0...there's still hope)
