I don't know if its just me but does anyone else have trouble with PT pyro killing you in like 15 seconds or less. The class seems crazy with burst damage and I play agent so I'm taking the dot off me as soon as they hit me with it. I can't stand toe to toe with this class at all and don't really seem to understand what I'm doing wrong. All other classes I don't really have a problem with but the seer burst out of this class along with there mobility is nuts to me. Funny part is I have a powertech myself (tank spec) and I look through all there abilities plus I record my fights with them and just can't stand up to the burst damage... Any suggestions??

Did your game, like, not patch up to 2.0 and later? Cause prior to 2.0 pyro PTs could indeed do that...now, they don't have anything that even qualifies as a burst. They can win you in fights, but it'll take them an eternity to do it. I don't think they even have an ability that hits much harder than 6K...

Maybe you just had this chance meeting with an uber-geared PT on your new agent?
+ Sorc running out of Force while fighting Marauders? Bioware says L2HYTF...wonderful +
A day may come, when our courage fails, when we forsake our class, and break all bonds from it; when we fall to our knees and cower in fear, and we look up to you and see death as inevitable. But today is not that day. Today, we fight!

Stun and kill. Pyro PT have no defenses, and are extremely prone to CC (compared to tank spec that can heal while stunned with shoulder cannon, and AP that takes 30% less while stunned).

PT pyro are only dangerous with a pocket healer or a tank guarding them, but then you're facing a 2 v 1 fight not a 1 v 1 situation.

Pyro pt doesn't have burst in comparison to basically all other classes.

On my dps pt setup i dont even bother going all the way up the pyro tree because the top ability isnt worth the points. Getting to tar in the tank tree then getting 10 points in the middle tree is much better.

All my "burst" is based om spamming flame burst rail shot which does get some good hits but in comparison to mara massacre spam, sniper abilities, even sorc or arsenal merc i have no burst.

I get more burst as lethality operative chain culling a double dotted target.

And most pyro pts want to see big splashy damage numbers on scoreboards so they aren't as utility as the pt setup i use, and they die much faster too.
