Early report on the SS build I posted yesterday -- my overall damage is down, but kills and medals are up, and I feel way more useful in wzs. I was able to solo defend a node in Civil War against 2 imps long enough for backup to arrive last night, which I wasn't able to do with the DF build. I suspect my damage will go up as my "muscle memory" re-adapts to the SS rotation.

Starbuckz is now known as Aerilon... won't explain the origin of that or else I guess I will lose that one too.

When 1.2 is live in a few hours I will go pure DF as long as I can and will post my first impressions tomorrow then...

No ranked wz's .... sucks...

Glad to hear you're sticking around! Off to play with 1.2 skill points.

Has anyone seen a skill point calc that's been updated for 1.2 yet? Torhead hasn't been updated.

oookay folks hear what I have to say!

The DF spec hasn't changed at all, all points remain where they were pre 1.2.

Like this.

Regarding gameplay... It's so ****in awesome! Now there is not a single reason why someone should take SS over DF lol.

I can easily take on a healer 1on1 even when they cleanse muahahaha.
It feels really great. Energy management got so much easier.

Some facts on increased damage:

- hemo blast spam whenever it is ready!
- wounding shots usable on EVERY target even when they try to cleanse
- lower energy consumption allows us to add another skill to our rotation... speed shot!
(use it directly after sab charge + wounding shots = uuuber burst)
- use flourish shot as often as you can

It just goes boom Well speaking for myself I'm really happy with the new patch

Edit: Will try hybrid today and see what it's capable of.
I don't think hot pursuit is worth to be taken 'cause it's actually not stronger than FoB tbh.
In addition it's only 6 secs and only occurs once in 20 secs. Useless.

I can only back up up Req, full DF spec is awesome now... was tops in 7 of the 8 played WZs we did yesterday in a group

Remember those annoying Sith Sorc spamming Lightening, running behind a pillar and trying to heal... if they run at 20% they die on dots no matter what. Quite funny to watch

I was wondering about what relicts are better for DF spec... right now I got the matrix cube and a surge/crit one. Since the expertise changed and is so much better now, is it worth replacing the cube and get alacrity (BH and sorcs spam their spells now under 1s... I was critted away in under 5s yesterday xD) or AP or maybe another surge/crit (not sure if they stack on CD)?

Tech Chance I am at 33% due to the changes to equip, which feels enough right now.

Have been running with the same full DF spec and I'm amazed how easier it is to manage energy now. I was very surprised the first time I ran out of energy because Cool Head was already off CD! And that's with the low 30s crit. I guess with the crit closer to 40 it's even better now.

Damn, this makes me wanna really try DF! I use a standard SS build to great effect in PvE and also PvP.

If I switch up to DF, what sort of performance difference will i see in Operations? Thanks!

How come I can't put up as much damage with full DF as you guys : (

I'm Valor 47...is that why?

I think I'm not using flurry enough. I realize even if damage is lower than everything else, it is free and adds up over time. Also I get tunnel vision on killing people with burst sometimes...need to stop that.

Also I pop cover fairly frequently. This is to mitigate damge and interrupts mostly. I'll get into cover, DoT and move on. My wounding shots and XS flyby get interrupted pretty frequently if not. However the best DF videos I watch they are NEVER in cover. I'm contemplating unbinding it from my F key and forcing myself to run around.

The 300k - 400k come out with with at least full Champion and some BM gear... if your crit rate is not at around 30% and Surge below 70% forget the high numbers... as with all, its gear dependant and once you have it you will see those numbers too.. mind you the DF spec is no burst spec, as has been written many times already

For that spec there what type of rotation are you using, i'm finally getting back to playing my gunslinger after a lengthy time of playing my sith juggy (yes i am coming back to the good side again )
