As I stated elsewhere, Missile Salvo is USELESS. *Was*. Now they have buffed it slightly. So now it will do similar damage to Rapid Shots - and will still trigger CGC slower than Rapid Shots 70% of the time. While using more heat. Doh. Still next to useless.

Not really, if specced pyro, MB+IM (+Fusion) = dot parade, also with Mortal Salvo, Missile Blast don't have anymore 6 cooldown (only the proc), so while you run around, cast it once at the beginning, you have already a guaranteed proc unlike rapid shots.

I think 45 seconds is fair.

High enough to not be spammed
Low enough to allow for consistent utility.

Agreed this CD should be reworked... it has to be on lower CD . If 45 seconds is too short for devs... so make it on 60 secs CD and give mercs some talents (like powertech has on grapple ) , which lowers it's CD.

With the newest changes, Rapid Shots is a de facto auto CGC proc. Missile Blast was and still is next to useless. Also the whole DoT thing is just a bad idea. No one wants a DoT dps anymore. For a simple reason. DoTs interfere with the key method that teams use to capture nodes - mezz/cc. Even in a 1v1 duel, the DoT class is hosed because he can't use mezz/cc effectively.

Anyway, w.r.t. Electronet, once melee figure out how to counter it, it will be useless. Right now so many melee on PTS don't even know when they have it on them. So they run around and kill themselves. Once they figure it out, it will just be a minor speed bump on the way to killing the Merc.
