    Heat Retention specifies "damaging abilities that generate combo points". Charges don't deal damage.

    Not directly, anyways.

    it gives the stacks when you detonate, which defeats the purpose of the finisher bonus

    They do trigger HR, but only on dealing damage. The insta-dmg charges proc separately and on detonating you get 5 stacks, the DoT charges only deal damage as one DoT and you get 1 stack of HR, unless you use caltrop and the charge gets applied to 5 targets.

    So there won't be a change and thus getting HR with sab isn't viable...

    Only on the first set of blast/shrapnel, even shrapnel bomb (frag/annihil-bomb detonated charges) gets boosted. But since these charges are totally unviable they render the spec pointless. That is, outside of PvP where 50% armor ignorance actually means something other than a 100dps increase.

    They used to work fine with heat retention last time I used a Sab spec involving NB - that was pre 1.11 and maybe even post 1.11 iirc.

    Sounds bogus to me. They should work :/ But I haven't checked the Sab hybrid specs I used to use since SL. I keep hearing word here and there about how sab is different every now and then - things like this >.<
