In the works, but this all takes time you know.

Especially when i'm trying to level 2 characters to 50 at the moment, and work, and oh god where has all my free time gone >.<

We appreciate your work Elicas. I'm still struggling to decide between shield or pyro specc, and I learned a lot from your BH tanking guide.

I am playing Pyro and Im level 30. Frankly this is a very easy spec to play IMO. Superheated Rail makes the rotation a no-brainer, no number crunching necessary. Im not calling myself an expert but i will say that I routinely top the parse in warzones while actually trying to win and do objectives and that I have ALOT of experience playing MMOs.

-You only have so many aoe abilities so use them when applicable, priority starting from DFA obviously.

-ST Dmg rotation is all about getting Rail Shots off. Not just because it has incredible range and damage, but more importantly because it is extremely heat efficient (Superheated Rail - essential T3 talent). If you can keep your heat low and stay alive for a while, there is simply no way you arent going to rain destruction down upon your targets in both pvp and pve.

-Basic rotation is - (Option - start with incendiary missile, but I am not a big fan. I prefer to close range with blaster shots to conserve heat in most circumstances. Could change at higher levels. This is a pvp perspective primarily, IM is probably a good opener for pve boss fight.) FB > RS > RP > option - always RS if it procs OR FB UNLESS RP is up and RS is not. In other words spam FB b/w RS and RP whenever they are up, with a priority to RS.

-From there you throw in your electro darts and what have you. If you are cc'd use your cc break.... lol. If your dying hit energy shield, heal pot and kolto vents....lol

-I assume Thermal Detonator will be used whenever available once I get it. Otherwise its Rail Shot city, because of the heat efficiency.

Overall Pyro PT is incredibly fun, simple and powerful so far.

My typical ST rotation was Incendiary Missile->Rail Shot->Unload->Grapple (just for kicks)->Rocket Punch->Flame Burst->Then here typically Rail Shot will be up again, then you basically juggle Flame Burst and your regular shot, doing Rail Shot and Rocket Punch as they come off cooldown.
