Howdy, folks! Good guide, but I have a few questions in terms of leveling specs. I will understand the class better as I play, of course, it just helps to hear from experience. I still don't have a rotation down though I suppose that will depend on my ability point choices. So my general question:

This build was identified as a viable PvE in this guide, however the OP suggests that the Dirty Tricks tree might be better due to the CC capabilities. Does anyone have experienced leveling with DT?

Leveling in Dirty Fighting is certainly possible. I leveled all the way with this build if I remember correctly. This isn't the best build though, and I would do it differently.

That build that you linked is a good build (f I do say so myself), but it is more for Operations and Flashpoints where there are long sustained fights. It really isn't for soloing and leveling.

If I were to give you a build to level in, I would recommend this one.

It has a balance between survivability and AoE damage. Both of these are very useful doing landscape quests.

Hope this helps!

He has some interesting builds and info on that site. I'm thinking of going back to SS for pvp, using a modified version of his Focused Sharpshooter build. I'm going to run it this way for a while, and see how it does.

Of course, now that we know for sure that 1.2 comes out in 2 days, it's time to get ready to test new specs.

Thanks! (it's my site lol)

That is a great looking build, fantastic for pre-50 PvP. I enjoy Dirty Fighting or Saboteur for PvP now at 50, because the armor values scaled really well for Juggernauts and Bounty Hunters, making them much harder to kill with straight up energy damage like in SS.

The changes made to Warzones made my "Focused Sharpshooter Build" a little obsolete, and I would change certain talents like the extended time on Vital Shot's bleed. While I would take that for a Dirty Fighting build, I wouldn't take it for a SS build now that DoTs don't prevent caps in Warzones.

I definitely like that one you put, because it has some great debuffs and all of the good Sharpshooter talents. The final Tier 7 SS talent isn't great for PvP because you stay still for too long (and I see you left it off, just agreeing with you).

I'm really p*ssed... just received a mail from the swtor support that my name "Starbuckz" is violating the copyright.... I have to change my name.
A name that I used in sooo many online games I cant even count but of course in SWTOR I'm not allowed to use it?!

Guess I will quit it, thanks guys.
I had a fun time with you.

Thanks! I'm going to run it at 50, at least for the next 2 days to get a feel for it before trying the new 1.2 specs out.

No way! Don't leave! Why can't you just change your name? (It is dumb by the way, as that isn't their name, it is spelled with an "s" at the end lol)

Let's just put all the blame on imps for that - and destroy them even more in 1.2
