I have seen quite a few mentions of heatseaking middles hitting this hard. I am in full partisan gear(no augments) and. I hit for 3000 max. How are u guys getting 10k.

Maybe you are confusing Tracer Missile for Heatseeker Missiles?

A non-crit for me is ~4-5k. I will crit in the 8-10k range often.


You should min/max for Power/Surge in your gear, and get Aim augments. This will increase your damage output.

One other pretty important note is that you have to have a tracer missile stack (of your own) on your target to do any kind of reasonable damage with heatseekers.

Theres not much use for a real rotation in PvP, but you *always* want to get a Tracer Missile on your target before using your heavy hitters.

My guess is you are confusing Heatseeker with another ability if it's hitting for 3k. With the proper tracer stacks i usually get 9 - 11.5k Heatseeker crits

Here in SWTOR, everything seems to break. Except the Cartel Market.

For heat seaker there is not much of a rotation... 1 tm then heat seaker that's it... Since 2.0 you get the full HS damage bonus with one tm. 3 tm are required for rail shot max bonus assuming you are spec'ed properly.
