I've been seeing people use these things - http://db.darthhater.com/skill_calc/...3ef22ef11:1491

So I was wondering what your build will be and why? for PVP/PVE a mixture of both, just curious to have a good in depth look since I want to try a bounty hunter out.

Right now I'm kind of torn, stuck between 31 point Adv. Prototype and 31 point Pyrotech..

On one hand, i love the pvp talents of the adv. proto, with its ability to dodge snares and roots, run faster, and just generally nuke the hell out of people with Immolate.

On the other, i love a 90% armor penetrating railshot...

Right now, Im looking at this, which is Adv. proto, but with a focus on Combustible gas cylinder instead of high energy, for the extra high dmg fire dot and 100% chance for a 30% snare on flameburst, which i think will make keeping people in melee range easier then just Hydraulic overrides with the 15% run speed boost alone, with no snare.

i also like that almost all of its attacks outright ignore armor and do massive damage: immolate, flamethrower, railshot (60%), flameburst, retractable blade all do great damage, work well with proccing free/autocrit attacks, and just act like the tank is wearing paper.

edit: here is the build http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#301ZMsrrobfkdsZfhM.1

Do you think you'll suffer from heat exhaustion without the high energy talent venting heat every 6 seconds or so. Your point about the snare is valid though.

That is a very intruiging setup, I had never considered it. That's a very viable way to add an extra dot. However, I think I would prefer the permanent 15% movement increase, heat vent, damage increases and armor bolstering.

For PvE Tank: http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#30...bogzZrz0MZ0c.1

I felt that -4% Damage will not be as effective as being able to lower your cooldown's a lot. Also, the root-effect on Grapple will nail enemies that might have a jump in front of you to take the full damage from your Flamethrower =)
I wish I could be a Jawa Bounty Hunter

I am more going with the Advanced Prototype and this will be my build which I feel will maximize the dps http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#301hMhZMsMMRrfkdsZb.1

I'd like to try this.

I would like to have retractable blade, just don't think I can squeeze it in without taking something more important away.

Pyrotech build focused around flame DoTs and railshot. Mostly railshot.
