Just wondering what other tanks action bars look like. I'm running out of room and i can see many more skills i would need to add. I have already taken off rocket blast off my rotation and wondering what other skills i will no longer be worth heat build up. I'm lvl 25 if that helps.

I've been following this guy's rotation and it has seemed to work out pretty damn well. I will note that after reading this I don't deal with any channeled abilities but Death from Above.

Hope that helps

I still think Flame thrower is worth it. I seem to always get ~2.5 seconds or more out of the channel.

I often use Flamethrower if I can hit three or more enemies with it. The deal with that post is that I am aware a lot of people dislike channels for the mobility loss and pushback. Without looking into specific situations, I can't say whether Flamethrower is flat out better or worse than one and a half Flame Sweeps so I simply listed it separately as an option and left it to individuals to decide if they could use it effectively or not.

Flamethrower is quite strong threat but it is difficult to get enemies grouped right to exploit that. I'll go into more detail about good Flamethrower usage in a later post.

On topic, my current action bars look like this:

I'm probably gonna have to keybind the empty slots soon though.

Buffs are on an unbound left action bar since there isn't any hurry to activate them.

alright might be a noob for not finding this earlier, but i guess we are all noobs atm

How did you setup macros for your buttons - especially on action bar 2 ?
Is that in the commands? couldn't find it for the life of me... thx !
