Crit adrenal does wonders in my Hybrid spec with Full Auto. The deadly cannon attribute makes each tick crit for at least 5-6k. Gonna do some parses to test if its better than power adrenal. Will also be testing Obroan Devastating Vengeance.

Added dread palace fights, also I'm pretty sure mercs have more base cunning and aim than commandos. My commando has every single datacron and is siting at 155 cunning, vs my merc with every datacron minus the +10 all stats, and he's sitting at 157.

Great in-depth guide, LK. I look forward to trying giving it a go once my Commando hits endgame (Alt-junkie so it may take a bit!).

Speaking of which...with the DXP weekend going on and many posters saying you're better off leveling with a certain spec to feel comfortable with it by endgame, would you recommend this spec for leveling as well? If so, would you knock out the smaller trees before finally going up the AS line or is there something you would prioritize? Thanks!

I would definitely go up the gunnery arsenal tree first, but once you can get the PPA/ Ionic Accelerator talent in the AS tree, the amount of DPS you are able to do while leveling is pretty insane.

In other words don't go Assault until level 25/26.

Followed your advice with a quick respec and the difference was like night & day on my lev 28 (now 30) Trooper. GOD, it went from boring & slow to fun & fast. Thanks a bunch for this LK. Highly recommended!

I think the other way around works better. Assault gets you most of the skills you need really early, while Gunnery isn't "complete" until level 45 at the earliest. I just leveled a Merc to 55 this double XP week, and I have Field Respec so I went back and forth plenty. Arsenal (Gunnery) just isn't great before you get Demo Round/Heatseekers and CoF/Barrage.

I find Grav Round and 35% armour pen on everything sub level 25 better.

So, looking at owdagg's parse, is Assault Plastique/Thermal better than Deadly Cannon?
