Add Demo Round and Plasma 'nade to that list.

Even Electro Net has higher priority than Grav in your rotation at level 51+.

It was a lvl 40 flashpoint... you dont have electro net and demo round at that point. and plasma grenade is kinda only effective with reserve powercell (which can be trained at lvl42) on single target, otherwise eats up your ammo.
All the /w were during the boss fight btw, i didnt want to train him to a top raider, only point him to the right direction, which it seems i managed and im happy with that.

So ... what exactly is the rotation for a 'DPS PT' supposed to look like? (I have only tanked with mine).

'Cause I just did a HMFP with one and it looked a lot like Auto Shot Central. I rarely saw flame thrower or flame burst being used. Heck, rarely saw DFA. And, although he was no where close to taking aggro (I was the other DPS), he used flares on CD. (Names may be off, I have been drinking). Gear was good, too. All 168 or 180 pieces with all the right stats.

He also followed BFJ's favourite kill order: boss only.

Oh well. We still got it done with no wipes.
Good. Bad. I'm the twi'lek with the saber.

Still he would not do high dps if his rotation was:

FA -> Grav -> FA -> Grav -> Grav -> Grav -> FA etc.

Middle tree? If yes, then that is indeed weird.
Pyro? If you're using flame thrower then you're doing it wrong.

Ooof.... PT rotations? I've only ever played PT Tank....

Rocket leap > Flame Sweep (x2, cause gen's no heat) > Rocket Punch > Flamethrower (for crowd control) > electro Dart and the AOE aggro gen (as needed) > lots and lots of railshot and autofire (the channeled one.. forgot what it's called) > grapplehook anything that's on the healer > AOE aggro gen anything that's on anybody but me > Kolto Overload (if the healer's bad)

That's just mine...

Depends on whether AP or Pyro...Basic rotations for both are in Dulfy's guide:

If AP you can tell if they know what they're doing by if they are pre-loading Prototype Flame Thrower with out of combat flame sweeps

I didn't know that. I'm not that far in AP yet. I do Flame Sweeps even if I'm not in combat just because it's awesome, lol.

Eh... And build your stacks to buff HiB. So 3 Grav Round between each HiB.

Ahem...while the discussion on Trooper rotations is way fresher than good ol' cyclical dead horse of "Dost thy Tank place thy Shield on thy Physician, thy DPS or where thy Sun shineth not", it still is a bit too long and not entertaining enough to belong here, don't you think?

On topic, although it's not quite weird, but cute -- in a couple past weeks, I encountered three characters that would open their rotations by tossing a snowball at the boss. Nothing improves the mood like seeing Malgus getting a face full of sparkly snow mid his pompous rant.
