Primal vs Holy fire

Recommended Posts

Which soul badge is better to have for fire gunner? I was originally leaning towards holy fire but someone said primal because of the extra 2 seconds for tab. Plus I already have HM RMB so I wasn't sure if holy fire would make a difference to proc triple shot.

If you think HM RMB is enough.. just go Primal. But for what I have heard, Holy Fire procs a lot of triple shots. There are tests on youtube showing how many procs you get on HM RMB, Holy Fire and HM RMB+Holy Fire. Don't know if they are all similar.

Holy Fire = High Ping (Im currently using this)

Primal = Low Ping  (Though i got this one as well, but PING ain't that generous towards me. I can only dish out 4 Tab>F)

Well... there are talks about Fire Gunners getting their Tab nerfed and their F buffed... so there's that...

 

But the big question is this... do you want more burst or more sustain.

-Bigger burst - Primal

-Better sustain - Holy

FYI Primal still gives you higher sustain and burst. 

 

even on kr new patch primal still has the 10% edge of sustain.  over holyfire. with a long cooldown soul.

What I mean, Gab, is that, with Primal Force, you're going to get the added 2 seconds of burst, which might give that added Bulletstorm, but once your burst is done, you're going to have to rely on your other skills to sustain DPS. Holy Fire will won't give you the chance for another Bulletstorm, but allow you to get more sustained damage through more use of Unload.

 

I've been testing my DPS on my gunner versus Sacred Longgui in the training room and by a considerable margin, Unload is the biggest source of my DPS, followed by Quickshot and then Bulletstorm.

 

But hey, if all you're doing is crushing whatever you fight in 1 burst of Tombstone, then whatever, right? Heck... if you're doing it in 5 Bulletstorm volleys, you probably don't really need Primal Force, do you?
