Actually the only advantage of hybrid is against area attacks e.g predominantly smashers in arenas. Understandably, hiting 6.5 - 7.5k on tanks and 10+ on other poor classes and then only 4.5 on hybrid, is a source of frustration. Which BW eagerly relieved.
But AP as dps still kills smashers. BTW, the highest smash I have seen as AP PT was 6.1K and the majority are under 5K. Of course everyone now is switching to single target dps, cuz ops healers will heal through anything except a huge spike in damage. Pyro is a bit overrated, it just works great against warriors, which compromise easy 50% of PvP population, thus the assumption is that they are OP. That doesn't meant they are not good.

Of course the hybrid AP was OP and needed to go. You are not supposed to be doing 1K+ damage while guarding a healer.

Full AP defences against rage spec are better than tank still.

I've been playing shield tech for a while now, and I am incredibly bored of it. The only reason I went ST was due to the lack of tanks that I saw in WZ's, and wanting to be a beefbag. I am going to be dropping a ton of comms switching my gear over to pyro in the coming weeks.

Nuuuuuu!!!! Get the Prototype!!! It's so much better, and seeing 4k+ Prototype Flamethrower ticks is amazing, try throwing that on your healer when he's getting focused by monkeys...and watch him be the only one come out of there alive LOL

What's wrong with hybrids? It's not like I'm taking HALF the tree, it's just 11/33/2

Pyro is best spec, this is common knowledge because incendiary round, assault plastique, sticky grenade, HiB, stockstrike is the best way to kill anything. First off- its got two explosions. Secondly, its got a cool HiB sound. Finally, you get to hit some ***** in the face. Even if it did 0 damage it would still be best spec world and that's what you guys do not realize.

Its dull as hell. I wish I could respect my vanguard to some other AC. I always try to play it but at best it feels medicore. Its even duller than being a smasher. Explosions are dull and slow. Also cant remember maybe one or two pyros I've found annoying. Most of players simply seem to ignore pyros I've noticed.

Maybe they shine in ranked arena, but low level pvp, higher level warzones and pve seem not to have them quite much.

Troopers are second least popular class in game propably because many people like commmandos/bountyhunters. Without it would be least popular IMHO.

1) Explosion, and if you stack multiple explosions you get this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=og7yN...re=c4-overview

2) If that was not enough reason then this should be - Pyro is best spec world
I'm pretty sure everyone has already tried Pyro Powertech, the easiest FOTM class in the game.
