Hello Bounty Hunters!

Just wanted a thread to discuss the various builds you can do on your mercenary.


please feel free to post yours and comment on others.

if you post a build be prepared for negative comments and criticism

if you are commenting on a build be constructive, post what you like and dislike (explain why), and be respectful about it




In my opinion this is the best arsenal build and it's what i use
5/34/2

http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#300McZMIkrRrdRzfzZM.1


i know most conventional are 5/31/5 or 10/31/0 or 0/31/10
but i feel like the second tier of pyrotech is too focused on gas cylinder which does nothing my high veoocity based merc.
likewise the body guard second tier is mostly healing based (which doesnt help my DPS)

its viable in pvp but obviously focused on damage output.

as all arsenal mercs, its tracer missile centered and fairly stationary.

you should provide a link to every combo you call out imo tbh

I will be 5/31/5 as it suits me pretty good so far, I hear you can respec for a price but thus far it has applied very well to my play style....Thanks to Mako lol..

SO Companions kinda go to the way side when ur 50 or what? I mean as far as PVP goes, not much room for them if your grouped up...obviously still viable in free roam pvp.

I think his point was that you posted "let's talk about builds." and then asked him to only talk about yours :P



But I'm a healer, so I'm going to stop being annoying in your thread.

No i have no problem talking about anyone else's build. This one is mine. so dont ask me to make a random one up to talk about that one.

if you have another one you wanna talk about post it!


Hell post your healing one. It would be interesting to see.
Im betting it would be a 34/7/0?

maybe like....

Ok build for pvp. I think the whole alacrity debate is ongoing at this point though. I think it is more important than others. Yes heat will be an issue but if your going for a pvp build,,,id want fast burst damage,,hence alacrity.

personally I dont see many alacrity in the perks.

perhaps a few on the heals and one on the pyro.



I can see how that would be better than like... 2% tech bonus.
and heat is rarely an issue in pvp like it is in pve
I hardly even find the need to use vent heat but maybe 3-5 times a round with the cast times as long as they are.

but wouldn't the majority of your alacrity come from the armor/mods oyu have?


and wouldn't it be just as useful to stack crits and surge for burst damage?
which is what that kit is for + the armor i use with it.
