The 4-pc Tech set bonus, Flame Shield (Static Shield) talent, and Flame Surge (Static Surge) talent synergize to generate a high frequency of high-damage Rocket Punch (Stockstrike) crits. Here is the spec used in the video: – Powertech: www.torhead.com – Vanguard: www.torhead.com The "Iron Fist" spec has been very effective for me in PVP, both group play and solo.
