Gotcha, thanks for the help! I'll work on it soon.
So, where am I missing that last 600 dps? I'm assuming a chunk of that is my 72 mainhand, and I could add about 2 APM from looking at that top parse, but that's still a lot of dps to make up.

I think it's safe to say I have it learned. That took all of like half an hour Thank you hybrid!

So with the decrease in orb strike damage incoming, and the relatively recent increase to overload shot damage, what would your thoughts be on spec'ing into calculated pursuit instead of experimental explosives for a hybrid sniper?

I think you're better off speccing into Precision Ambush in the MM tree for Armor Pen on Ambush and use that.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

I tried out precision Ambush and Calculated Pursuit while not using OS a while ago and it didn't convince me: Problem is, you're also losing extra surge on every crit tick of Corrosive Grenade and on your Frag grenades, which are important in add heavy fights.

But you'd probably go for Calculated Pursuit in PVP now...

Yup i can confirm that
Corrosive Grenade
w/o Experimental Explosives = 1190
with Experimental Explosives = 1394

where Experimental Explosives wont add anything to Explosive Probe what was my main interest that made me test
w/o Experimental Explosives = 6824
with Experimental Explosives = 6846

for full lethality currently i prefer Precision Ambush instead 5 more energy and waiting for the day when relics will be fixed so we can dump that selfheal point
also 1 point in precision ambush wont make your non crit ambush hitting more than lazed snipe
but 2 point precision ambush makes non crit ambushes hit harder than crit snipes wich makes skill even more powerfull if crits

Do you clip SOS or delay Cull to get in that extra Ambush?

im delaying Cull ,looks so hard to get a proper clipping on SoS on PTS with 200+ ms lag and energy drains me a lot ,1 out of 3 times im able to continue with rotation
someone mentioned using ambush before SoS than Cull could be more energy efficient and im eager to try that on next PTS visit
but if you manage to do that its a win win scenario i believe ,tho its so awkward

It is and it will be difficult to pull of in raids optimally. I'm curious though if delaying Cull to fit in an Ambush each time is going to be a DPS increase versus just using Cull on cooldown.
