Along the lines of what SamuelAU is saying about not wanting to delay your main rotation for Trickshot (when sub 30%), I am a little surprised Falver that you have so much success with using Sabotage Charge at places where it will lead to delaying you next Speedshot by a GCD. Sabo charge is less dps than Speedshot or Aimed Shot so I would expect it to be a dps loss if it delays your main rotation. However Falver your dps is really impressive and you seem to use sabo charge in every burst volley window, so maybe there is something to it...

Things to understand about Sharpshooter parsing in 2.6:
Not using flyby results in your rotation having about 2~3 seconds of downtime before your burst volley is ready. This, however, does assume that your APM is extremely high (41.08 for that parse). Now, given this fact, you're guaranteed to have two GCDs of filler every 45seconds where your options are: flyby, sabotage charge, or flurry of bolts and, when sub-30%, trickshot.

Now, that means that you're free to use 2 GCDs where ever and whenever you please in the rotation because it'll line up later with BV. If your APM is NOT above 40, then you'll get about 1 GCD and if it isn't higher than 38 then your BV will line up without filler.
The highest priority are as follows:
Flyby, (20~21 DPS)
Sabotage charge, (17~18 DPS)
Trickshot (16~17 DPS)
Flurry of bolts (8~9 DPS)

As for the times in my rotation when I do QD -> TS or TS -> QD it's probably because of energy constrains.

Thanks the three of you, that indeed clarifys what I suspected :-)

Will have to practice now, as I had very much gotten used to Hybrid. But for some fights (i.e. Brontes) it just doesn't work anymore. Before Freighter nerf you could make up for the lack of burst in Hybrid by precasting freighter in certain situations, now I figure Sharpshooter is all in all simply the better option...

3.7k. Seems like I have quite a ways to go, I'm getting a smidge over 3k in full 78s but without using an adrenal & with Obroan relics, though I don't think I have best in slot enhancements (I've got 1-2 alacrity enhancements which I should probably change to power/surge & I think one of the accuracy enhancements is the low power one)...

The guide has finally been updated (see first post).

The actual skill tree build is 36/4/6. I changed the title of the thread, but for some reason (maybe because it's a sticky) this change isn't being reflected. For now, the title of the guide is inaccurate.
