On the flip side I got the Priming Shot tactical. It is amazing. Arsenal is easier for the same results.

What are your thoughts? Appreciate the feedback.
honestly, I'm still learning how to use it right. You need to track dots well and ignore your insta cast on power shot/serrated. save it to be used on power shot to pop your thermal det while mag is on cd

It seriously changes the IO rotation and you kinda have to relearn it. I will report back with more info when i've gotten better with it

also, priming shot tac is my choice for arsenal for sure. most consistent one for the spec imo

You can pop mag shot by activating the AoE.

Thanks. Looking to see if IO can be used in ranked play.

does the tact actually refresh DOT's on all targets effected by your serrated bleed and incendiary? or simply just the targets hit by the sweeping blaster /DfA ?

or even better, do ALL dots simply refresh whenever the skills are used?

i used it but wasnt impressed by the numbers, assumed it was only target with dots that your aoe's hit

i bought that tactical upon looking at this thread but havent tried it , at first i thought that tactical was garbage but since alan here told it is the best tac i will give it a shot

but at a glance i think sweeping blaster only refresh on the enemies effected already by dots but if you are not in aoe sweeping blaster the dots wont be refresh ( correct me if i am wrong)

so the way i see it , maybe the usage would be you put the dots and before the dots fall off you do sweeping blaster to refresh it , that is what i am thinking

you have to hit them with the aoe. would be OP otherwise.

they must be dotted already. so you do your normal apply and spread but you never have to reapply and spread if you play it right and positioning is in your favor.

Been testing this for a week now and this is the best i can do in normals. Its the top tactical for voidstar and novara without doubt
