if your PvPing w/o TD your foolish... pvp is all about bust and that ability makes you one of if not the most bursty class in the game.

To OP plain and simple you need more surge... min of (250) to reach 75%

You can also use 4 piece PvE shells for another 8% damage on HiB, if you are that desperate to get big numbers.

not worth it, youd have to put more crit in your gear.

He asked how to get 5k railshots lol. and that spec seems to give me more damage then when I run TD.
in Rateds with another PT usually things are dead so fast TD is a waste IMO. personal preference... but since this guy is probably talking about regs he probably should just use TD

Drop expertise to approx 1200 and you can afford to drop crit and accuracy as well. Play around with it but I believe my accuracy and crit rating by itself is below 200 for both atm. (and I'm not done) But my aim is near 1500 and power is approx 1200-1300 I believe. Buffed and stimmed my tech bonus damage is approx 950 and you should be worried about that more than rail shot. Better bang for the buck.... take a look at how much white vs yellow damage you're doing.

You're already squishy... why bother worrying about expertise and damage reduction, plus you get a better damage increase by dropping expertise for power. In competitive PvP your damage will out weigh your survivability if you have competent tanks and healers.

has anyone run with this? I was debating the same strat (I have plenty of BH comms laying around) and I would still be fine to loose 200 expertise....seems like the 2 piece and 4 piece bonus is better on the pve gear.

Simply stated is the reduced cooldown on battle focus (increasing crit percent more often) and 8% boost to HiB/rail shot damage better than the 2 set dps pvp (which half of the bonus (unless I'm completely off base "Determination or Tenacity by 15 seconds.")) doesn't even work for vanguard/ptech) and 4 set +15% crit chance?

A number of PT's use this... personally I like the crit chance bonus because I drop my crit rating so low in exchange for power and the only white damage I care about is rail shot, so it increases my chances to crit without having much crit.

And yes the 2 set bonus is worthless for PT's.

ty for the reply...i was just thinking that I HiB way more than shock strike, so the 8% boost would be better....now if the bonus were extra %15 crit DAMAGE vs CHANCE then it wouldn't be much of a discussion.
