    Question Shrapnel Charge (Sab) Question (PVE)

    This is a theory/noob question since I don't have a Sab high enough to test. But can you use 3 points in Silent Setup to apply 5 charges to a mob, then target another mob, apply 5 charges, rinse repeat and then pull all of them before tab detonating? Eg. filling them up with with Shrapnel Charges for AOE damage and then multiplying the effect?

    you only detonate the 5 charges on your target at the time of detonation.

    So you could charge up multiple mobs then start, but you'd still have to get the combo points to detonate.

    So could I have a group of mobs pre-coated in Shrapnel AOE charges, pull the last one with 5 combo points, detonate, tab to next, attack with combo builder, detonate, continue till all pre-charges have gone off or everything is dead?

    Nope, 1 target at a time.

    I am under the impression that once you change targets there are no more charges on your previous target since you just deleted the combo points.

    Changing targets removes combo points on the target when you place a new one. Also you can only have a max of 5 charges up, so the new mob will start lowering the other mobs charges.

    Sorry but no, you can only have 5 charges up on an individual mob at a time. The assumption that you can precharge groups of mobs is actually correct, you just need a combo point on them in order to detonate those charges, or you can use an ability like Annihilation bomb combined with Demolition specialist and carpet bombing to detonate all the blast and/or spike charges on a mob, doing damage to them and 1/2 other targets near them, with no combo points on them with that Annihilation bomb.

    this, charges have a timer, i notice this in vpp when i change targets, only the combo points leave, i can still detonate on the previous target with 1 combo point.
