Hi guys, i'm a tank since lv1 cuz it's much more easy to find groups for flashpoints and heroics to lv up, but now that i'm lv41 and i love PvP i wanna try the pyrotech spec.
I found this two builds in my search but i don't know which one is more efficient now at 1.3 if you could point me in the right direction...

4/6/31 - http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#301bMZMsZfhrbdGhMs.2
4/12/25 - http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#301bMZMsMrZfhrbdhhM.2


Thx in advance

I agree with this ^^ but drop 'Gyroscopic Alignment Jets' from all builds. The 8 Heat you will vent when incapacitated is half a Flame Burst and just not worth 2 valuable points. I would pick up 2 pts in 'Prototype Burn Enhancers' or 'Intimidation' for more damage. Gyroscopic Jets sounds very nice but with the resolve system and the amount of stuns it doesn't help out enough to warrant the spec considering the squishyness of Pyrotechs when focused.

I disagree, you get that 8 heat when rooted also. I've gone from 100% heat to 30% in a few seconds in PvP because of that. I take the 2 points in that over rapid venting.

You do need 2 points in one or the other to go up the tree (i mean who really chooses degauss).

Dear BW please have RS/HiB send me to other fleet Nekkid. TY. Also, don't allow 3 sin/shadow 2 sorc/sage teams in HB. That is all.

I generally like this one cause it gives you all the fire enhancements for flame burst and you get the 9% aim increase

I used to run AP months ago and switched over to Pyro. Every one of the Pyro specs I've found on the internet is pretty bad. I think people just assume that you need to be stacking a stupid amount of Aim to make Pyro work, and trying to cram in useless utility. This is not true and just a bad way to spec.

You should be stacking nothing but max power mods and max power/surge enhancements with power (overkill) augments on every piece of gear. Your total Aim should NEVER be over 1550, but your Power rating will be over 1200 (giving you a stupid amount of sustained damage and an even more ridiculous amount of damage on crit). Power is better DPS than Aim is, per point - hands down.

Your Ranged Crit should be not higher than 23% buffed (which makes RS Crit chance 38% from the Elim set bonus) and Tech Crit Chance should not be over 30% (Crit works on Ranged and Tech attacks simultaneously, but Tech has a higher natural crit chance). With allt he power you stack, even if you do somehow happen to miss a crit with Rail Shot, your FB and CGC dots will destroy your opponent.

If you're putting points anywhere outside of Rapid Venting and Gyroscopic Alignment Jets, then you don't know how to spec. You don't need anything from the Shieldtech tree other than Rail Loaders, and your spec should really look like 2/8/31. This is the link for the spec all the best Ranked Pyros run. I'm not even fully min/max'd (about 2 mods from it) and I hit full WH geared players for 5k+ on a regular basis.

In a really bad match, I only die about 5 times...in a really bad match. You'll win any DPS race, and if you know how to pillar hump and kite, you'll never get more than 1 or 2 deaths (even with Pyro's lack of utility) when solo queueing - which is why Energy Rebounder is freaking awesome to spec into.

I know that was a lengthy read, but it has a lot of very important material in it. If you think I'm just some FOTM newbie, I invite you to watch my videos on my Youtube Channel. I am just trying to help out a newcomer to the Pyro scene, and help him get it right the first time so he doesn't spend the rest of the Preseason bouncing from one spec to another due to misinformation

I have 0% additional accuracy, so that Ranged accuracy is 90% and Tech accuracy is 100%. Accuracy, as I have found, is not that great for increased tech damage and the 5.36% you get to Ranged from using 3 Power/Accuracy enhancements is just not worth the lost Surge. A 10% miss chance is a very narrow window and "feels" more like 1% miss chance in actual fights. The extra 1.2% Surge you gain from going pure surge enhancements adds up, especially in long games.
