They are still used to purchase some type of crafting component. I haven't read much in to what those things are for though.

Ah, thanks guys. I'll need to read up on it a bit more carefully before 1.2 hits. I guess I should get back to farming BM bags for 0 tokens till then.

I can't believe I hadn't thought of that. 2-3 more keys with my pinkie, and another column within reach of my index finger. Z, X, and C are already remapped.

Give me some time. I'm still working through different specs.

There has been a bug reported that one of the ticks for Plasma Cell (Combustible Gas Cylinder) is missing:

Is this why you haven't been killing me on your sniper anymore? : )

The first tick is the one missing, huh? That's.. the most important one. :c

Heh, because we all know that 1.2 was absolutely perfect in every way. Right.

1st pass update to the Guide for 1.2 has been done:
http://taugrim.com/2012/01/04/guide-...anics-and-pvp/

Let me know if I missed anything.

Also, beware of "false" Accelerator procs if you are a Pyrotech. They're evil!

Taugrim, thanks for your guide, I've learned a lot when I first started PvPing. However, I think you might have missed something:

"Grapple (Harpoon) which has a 45 sec cooldown, 35 sec with Advanced Tools (Tactical Tools). You can add a 3-sec root effect with the tanking tree talent No Escape (Defensive Measures). Keep in mind the root effect builds Resolve"

I don't think the root builds resolve, grapple/harpoon builds resolve regardless if it is talented or not. This is why you can't grapple people with full resolve even when you don't have no escape. Also, I'm fairly certain other roots/snares don't build resolve as well.

Also, since Ion Gas Cylinder is broken right now (not doing the damage that it should be), you might want to consider taking the point out of Supercharged Ion Gas and putting it into oil slick. Just my two cents.

But as always, great guide!
