    Default Demolition Specialist?

    I got this talent, seemed handy as it would allow you to skip 1 gcd by not having to use detonate and also increase aoe dmg but after i fill a mob up with either blast or spike charges i hit them with a annihilation bomb and it doesnt detonate the charges, makes me sad

    It works with blast charges it just doesn't use ur combo points so u can press ur detonate at the same time the bomb hits for additional damage. But it most definitely uses ur charges on impact.


    I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.

    Well it doesn't double ur damage from the charges because the detonate only hits for like 400-600 at lvl 40, all ur damage is from the charges so I usually see 900-1000 noncrits and an additional 400-600 at the Same time on my screen.. Crits are like 1500-1600 and 600-700 at the same time

    1) It does detonate Blast Charge.
    2) It does NOT remove combo points, so you can use another finisher in addition to it. Not sure if this is a bug or a feature.

    most importantly you spelled Jiraiya wrong.

    but what gcaliber said is correct, I thought it was not detonating in an aoe at first, but it just doesnt remove your combo points.

    I just got this ability also and I've been testing it and I'm finding one of two things :

    1) The charges will blow with the A bomb but it seems the damage is way reduced. Someone said it doesn't use charge booster for the extra charge damage ? Is this true ?

    2) Sometimes it doesn't blow the charges at all. To be honest it seems buggy.


    The only real advantage to using it is that you can blow charges and keep the combo points for a finisher right ? (granted, it affects 1 - 2 other mobs nearby also)

    Ok, with some more testing, it seems like if there are multiple targets, sometimes the blast charge doesn't hit the one you actually throw it at so it is bugged.

    Well i have been testing this extensively by stacking different charges. I've stacked full stacks of only blast, full stacks of only spike, stacks of blast and spike mixed etc. And attempted to blow them with a bomb and it just does not work!!
