Gunslingers in 2.4

Let me preface this with the statement that I have been writing PvP articles about Update 2.4…they just aren’t on this site. For my PvP articles, head to Corellian Run Radio to read them. I have one that is a general arena overview, one about meta-strategies in arenas, and one on the focus target system, which is applicable to warzones as well as arenas.

So for PvP, I like to give Corellian Run precedence on those articles, since I write a PvP column. But Gunslingers are mine. So here we go!

First off, there were no changes to the Gunslinger class at all. So the basic tenets I set forth in my Gunslinger Advanced Class Guide and the subsequent articles on the Saboteur, Sharpshooter, and Dirty Fighting trees are all still relevant.

But let’s talk arenas. First off, I will describe my experience in arenas overall. Read more…

LAST UPDATED: 2.0.0

Welcome to the Gunslinger Builds Guide. This guide is focused on the Dirty Fighting tree, and contains all Dirty Fighting builds I have used or will at some point use. This means that the other build guides on my site for the Dirty Fighting tree may not be kept up-to-date, but this one will always be kept current. Also be sure to check out the other guides on the other two trees, Sharpshooter and Saboteur!

This build guide will be in three parts. The first part is a brief description of the tree and its uses. The second part is what I consider to be “core” talents in the tree, i.e. talents I would never go without. The third part contains all of the variations that I use, have tried, or have thought about trying. Read more…

PvP Talent Build: Shield Tech/Advanced Prototype Hybrid Powertech – 25/14/2

June 9, 2012 3 comments

LAST UDPATE: Update 1.2.6

This is a PvP build for the Powertech. It is a hybrid between the Shield Tech and Advanced Prototype specialization trees.

Note: This build was created with the Darth Hater Talent Calculator. The link to view this build is here. The associated Vanguard build is here.

Class: Powertech
Primary Focus: Shield Tech
Secondary Focus: Advanced Prototype
Purpose: PvP
Goal: This build is about movement, interrupts, damage mitigation, and our favorite: Rocket Punch. This build incorporates Jet Charge, while taking both damage mitigation talents for a total of 9% damage mitigation while Ion Gas Cylinder is active. This build uses some shield-activated talents, but does not stack shield-chance itself, due to only being able to shield half of the damage types. Rocket Punch is buffed with a proc-based cooldown-reset, a boost to crit chance and damage, and a boost to direct damage.

Easily one of the coolest armor looks in the game

All points allocated are the maximum allowed for each ability, unless otherwise noted.
