Gut > ion pulse > HIB > stockstrike > HIB

Gut them to dot them to make your HIB an auto crit, and slow them. Ion pulse to set them on fire, possibly make your stockstrike free, reset HIB if it was on CD, apply another dot, and slow them. HIB them, hopefully an auto crit. Stockstrike, hopefully for free, to reset HIB. Finish up the proc rotation with another HIB, one of the earlier attacks should have reset it.

If things go well, you should have a lot of ammo. If you want another dot, there is always incendiary round, but that's more of a "I'm about to die" thing.

I'm not sure which armor set I'd want to use though. Probably combat tech, since you can proc auto crit HIB anyway.

Too expensive to maintain 2 dots without running HEC from my experience.

I don't think the dots would be the primary damage in a build like this. This is a great kiting build though.

I've run it for pve purposes for awhile now. Like I said I dont find it viable while using plasma cell.

Known build. It might become more popular with the HiB proc being dependent on plasma cell. It's not a good PvE build. It's a PvP kiting build.

I know you have some nice videos with it, did you like it, or do you like shield better?

I think it might become more prevalent.

Well, I think it's a great build and it's what I would use if I was filling a DPS/utility role. But, my healers NEED me to be in ion cell for the guard. I enjoy both playstyles.

Right now going into the Tank spec you get more dps.

After patch this build will be absolete... you will simply not vent enough hit as too do anything else but auto attack mantain one dot and maybe Sticky in the 15 sec cd..
