burning down healers
taking out tanks

in my (very limited) experience, i think it's sab, DF, DF respectively. what do you guys think?
I am going to update this very soon for 1.3.

I will say that I think the best way to kill healers right now is with burst damage, because they aren't really having problems dealing with DoTs. Surprise them, and they die. For that reason, Sharpshooter is the best for dealing with healers, IMHO.

Tanks are more difficult, though I feel like you do that DF is better suited, simply because internal and elemental damage affects everyone equally, regardless of shielding or armor.

Best 1v1 is still really Sab, like you said, but I actually feel pretty strong in 1v1s in all of the specs right now. I feel like we are at a good place. Vanguards and Powertechs are still outbursting us, which feels wrong, but we are in a good place.

Somehow I don't feel the energy costs to be that high like I remember.
First off, nice thread guys, very constructive.

I'm returning to the game after a 2 month break (working away), and picking up my lvl 26 GS for some fun. Looking at your build above what is your rotation like? Thanks in advance. Going to try out a few specs over the next few days to get a feel for it again.

duh... vital shot, shrap bomb, shock charge, sab charge, speed shot and maybe sabotage if required.
since you don't have to build up your DOTs as requirement for wounding shots it actually doesn't matter.
When using all of the above you can melt a target in seconds. Tho keep in mind that it's quite energyconsuming.

I've already posted some things about hybrid specs like that earlier in this thread but I'm too lazy to search for it right now.

Good luck^^

Thanks for the prompt post. I'm only level 27 with all points invested in DF at this point. Available to me at this point is Vital Shot, Shrap Bomb & Sab Charge. After that I've been using Aimed Shot or Charged Burst if possible. Finishing with Quickdraw. At least I get Flourish Shot at lvl 28.

Enjoying the class though, having come from a Guardian.
