    Burn hot question

    I just hit level 60! ... now my question is this: is it more beneficial to be in str. stance when I pop Burn hot or is that extra power cost in str. stance not worth it? (I run 2BM) and second, Is it better to use HS PS SB or just spam SW PS and QS?

    Re: Burn hot question

    I always flop to S:S before popping a Burn Hot, but I only pop burn hot in the last few % of a bosses life, or for lulz. b/c it resets your max power to 1, go for it.

    re: shot rotation in burn hot, I usually just continue w/ my focus rotation, only that I build up to full focus first w/ IC ready to go. So, I'll dump basically everything I have focus-wise, and then again. HS is usually not worth the time to use in a group setting since you can out-DPS it w/ your normal rotation.

    Re: Burn hot question

    In PvE if you're going to use Burn Hot, make sure you're in strength stance. Just spam ISP, QS but most of all Barbed arrow. Keep the bleed on, if you're traited/legacied it will tick for around 400 every 2s. Once you're out of max power (1), wait 5s then pop beneath care (once you get it) and a power pot, and go back into endurance.

    PvP...well...let's just say one shotting with HS is too much fun

    For PVE, I'd give Cool Burn a resounding thumbs down. You're not only giving up another Huntsman slot, you're giving up a Legendary too.

    I've tried it out in the Moors a few times for giggles, but in it, Heart Seeker costs a staggering 1150ish power. It was fun, but I went back to 4/1/2. But, to be fair, I haven't really amazing +power build in order to get the most out of it. As such, I'd welcome commentary from PvMP hunters

    Re: Burn hot question



    The thing i don't get about cool burn is that the trait says "...this trait enables you to push longer while using the Burn Hot skill..."

    I fail to see how +50% power cost = pushing longer...

    Edit: Wouldn't it make more sense to be -50% power cost?

    Edit Edit: (sorry im at work) This can't be working as intended, the +50% cost would have to come close to cancelling out the +50% damage right?

    Re: Burn hot question

    I'm pretty sure that's the INTENT - it makes the skill cost more while doing more damage - I just think it's one hell of wonky description (as you noticed.)

    IMO, the benefit of CB isn't that it makes burn hots burnier and hottier (yeah, I said it, you read it), it's the cooldown. Being able to pop it faster is what makes it more attractive for Moors shennanigans.

    And CB'd BH > BA spam on a few creeps = sailing the SS DOT down the Bleedy River towards Infamy City, capital of the the Republic of QQ.

    Re: Burn hot question

    This is what Burn Hot Reminds me of Everytime I Use It.

    If anyone goes onto Yahoo Images and types in Kao Ken x100 you will see my old pic of using the skill but I cant get the link to it since I deleted it off my account on that site.



    EDIT: Link is broken but it shows Goku from DBZ charging an attack while Kao Ken. I find it funny that Yahoo links my Image for Kao Ken x100 instead of an actual DBZ image
