So my latest parse on the target dummy was OK..........I am not in full campaign yet and still working on my 100% min/max

My parse http://www.torparse.com/a/10151
Came out with about 1500 average DPS, which is OK I guess......But I feel like I should be hitting a little harder.....

I'm trying to get a little more out of my Pyro because the Mercs in my guild are doing about 100k more dmg than me per fight.

I thought about trying out Advanced Prototype but so far from what I've read, Pyro is better for PVE (Go figure)

So should I take Thermal Detonator? If so, how do you work it into the priority?

Your heat management is terrible. You are using rapid shots way too much.

Try this spec out http://swtor.askmrrobot.com/skills/P...i-30-9eik1ceif

from looking at your parser your rotation is off as well.. with this build you rotation would go as follows

1.Thermal Det
2.Thermal sensor override
3. Incendiary Missile
4. Explosive Fuel
5. Railshot
6. Flame Burst/Rocket Punch (use Rocket punch if your within range b/c its a higher proc rate for resetting Railshot)
7. Railshot
8. flame burst/rocket punch ( depending on what u used for 6, if u used RP its obviously on CD but u want to make sure to get a FB in there to get the dot)
9.Rapidshots

After that pretty much repeat but do not refresh Incendiary Missle or you will overheat like crazy
If you see your heat pushing around 40 hit a Rapid shot to keep it down, also if you push your self over 60 heat use vent heat right away.

few more tips dont spam flame burst you lose dps this way by resetting the dot and last but not least if your railshot hasnt proc'd and its only got 3-4 seconds on cd its better to use an unload or death from above and wait for it to come off cd to get 2 railshots real quick
