I like BH, I like having a versatile ability array at my disposal. I like ranged AoE. I hate tracer missile spam (in concept; I haven't tried, but I hate single-ability specs). Is there a run around an make big AoE drops/hits available for BH, or should I go melee for spammable AoE?

Pyrotech sounds like what you are looking for. A lot of Merc/Commando Battlemasters have already left the Tracer/Grav-round ship in favor for Pyrotech, which offers a lot more mobility while maintaining plenty of burst damage.

That said, the AOE capabilities are not that much more than what you find in Arsenal. We already have, without a doubt, one of the strongest toolkits for AOE damage in the game baseline. Explosive Dart + Fusion Missile + Death from Above + Sweeping Blasters is much more than what other classes have.

For information regarding Pyrotech, check out:

Are any hybrid specs viable? Part pyro, part healer, maybe? Arsenal high enough for just basic tracer missile as an option (just not a one-hit-wonder)?
