I can show you how bursty a Pyro Powertech can be if you want.

Maybe you just had this chance meeting with an uber-geared PT on your new agent?
I pulled off a 7400 Immolate/Fire-Pulse (tactics build) on someone once! But yeah that was I think the hardest hit I've ever managed to pull on the class. Railshots (in any spec) are typically 2500-6500 MAX. And that used to be good every 6 seconds when the health pool was 15-20k. Now that its upwards of 30-40k, yeah....lol

Is this like one of those stories you read about where a letter finally gets delivered after 50 years?

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??
I will assume you are not a troll. Do not wear PvE gear.

On another note, actually one of the few remaining virtues of pyro is the 75% armor penetration on RS, but the burst is not good by any means. Its just a tad stronger against tanks compared to some classes with no armor penetration.

That's the kind of hit you get, with a power proc, a damage power up, a max crit, and some poor sorry sap with 1200 bolstered expertise.

Usually immolate hits for 5 or so, with the 2.4 update it should hit 7 easy.

Question, are you 55 and fully pvp Conq geared?

If not, I suggest you have this thread deleted.

Currently, the state of PT and Vanguards burst is a joke in comparison to other classes in the game.

Apparently my perception is not that of the developers.

the changes on PTS to TD/AP do a little to help this...about 100DPS overall, but a bit more bursty with some timely crits.

but, still not enough to be competitive versus current top performing AC's.
