    Default Sab question.....

    sorry if this has been answered, but i couldn't find it clearly laid out

    1) say i got 5 blast charges on my target and thus 5 combo points....can i use a deadeye shot from marksman to use the combo points, then detonate my 5 charges? or does rogue finisher remove the charges too?

    2) reversely, as i understand detonate takes combo and charges away, so you cant pair with another finisher, correct?

    3) target has 5 charges and 5 combo points....annihilation bomb with demolition specialist will first bomb the target, then blow the charges, and then theres still 5 combo points to use?

    thanks for your replies.

    1) Yes
    2) Should be(Usually other finishers are better than denote itself)
    3) Yes

    apologies, your answers are unclear, probably cause my questions left open ended answers:

    1) yes....do you mean yes i can deadeye before detonating, or yes, deadeye uses up the charges

    2) should be meaning detonate will use up combo points?

    3) yes, there is still 5 combo points after annihilation?

    Deadeye and denote both use up combo points. Thus, you can't use both of them consecutively. Annihilation is a bomb and does not use combo points. Hope that clear things up. In addition, any ability that lists 1-5 combo point in tool tip in the listing will use up combo points.

    Charges = combo points, so if you use deadeye you will use the combo points up, so the charges is just a way of giving sab combo points, so no you cant detonate after using deadeye.

    If you wanted to be able to detonate your charges and still use a finisher afterwards, you would have to spec into Demolition Specialist so that your Anihilation bomb could set off your charges and leave your 5 combo points, thus allowing you to use Deadeye shot afterwards.

    Everyone has given you weird answers let me explain it clearly.

    If you throw 5 charges, you will get 5 combo points.
    You can then use detonate or deadeye shot(bad idea).

    If you do use deadeye shot it will use your 5 combo points, but your 5 charges will remain on the target.
    In order to follow up with a detonate you will have to get at least 1 combo point to use detonate.

    The better way to do this is mentioned in the quote above. Though it only works with blast charge and spike charge. For PvE this is a good opener for AoE with 4 spike charges 1 blast charge. Then follow up with a non-detonate finisher.

    Yes you can use the finisher then detonate!!!! I did not do it often and detonate does not seem to do as much damage when you do.
