What is your favorite ability to use, what is the one you can do without and why?

Love

Flame Thrower! AOE damage, great animation and short cooldown.

Hate

Missile Blast. It uses too much heat, has pitiful damage and an unneeded AOE.

Death From Above is my all-time favorite, although Rocket Punch is a close second (and the reason I'm leveling a Powertech now).

Least favorite is Power Shot. ::shrugs:: Just animation-wise, it's boring.

Explosive Dart. I love that ****. I love how it has a 2 second primer to trigger burst, and I love when sages force speed away with less than 1,000 health and it fires off, killing them. That makes my day.

Least favorite ability? Sweeping Blasters. It should be longer like the Smuggler variant.

It reminds me of the good old days of using the Rail Launcher's secondary fire in Dark Forces, and knowing that the stormtrooper it hits has exactly three seconds to live.

It's even better here, though, because enemies in this game actually *know* they're going to die and panic appropriately.

Oh, Rocket Punch all the way, even as a Merc - makes a thematic finisher for a melee enemy

As much as I enjoy missile blast for the knockdown on non-elites, it's an awful lot of heat to justify consistent use unless there is a real need for an instant cast.

Most loved abilities:
Retractable Blade - Awesome animation. I especially love finishing people off with it when they end up with <5% hp - predator-style!
Flame Thrower - Roasting people in flames is simply awesome.


Most hated ability:
Flame Burst - It takes away from the uniqueness of the Flame Thower, and the spammable nature of it makes no sense to me. After all I didn't see Boba or Jango Fett spam bursts of flames everywhere. Our main spammable attack should be a blaster attack.

And for the moment, it triggers shoulder-slam.

Favorite : rocket punch. As stated, it makes a super nice finish (Tiger uppercut !).

Most hated : rail shot while tanking (I play pyro pt most of the time). Why is this just never up ??
