I am pure burst at the moment and havent dipped into any other tree and I am trying to evaluate wether or not going PURE Burst will be better at 85

am I mistaken in calculating that ultimately HVS > MFB?

dipping into other trees i figured

MFB @ L11 (no info on damage for MFB 12 @L87)
4 sec cooldown (with swift soultrap rune)
2 sec cast time ( slightly <2 secs with soul power)
124% Base Attack (with Absorption rune?)
+12% Bonus Damage (7140 single damage ) (with swift soultrap rune)

Going pure burst
HVS
4 sec cooldown (with rail gun + wildfire 4/4)
1 sec cast time (with rail gun)
140% Base attack (with wildfire 4/4)
+50% Bonus Damage (6876 upto 15 targets) (with rail gun)

so lets say
MFB with 8000atk x1.24 = 9920 + 7140 = 17,060 roughly
HVS with 8000atk x1.40 = 11200 + 6876 = 18,076 roughly (on 1 target)

Im starting to think HVS will be better than MFB for a mainly PVE Pure Burst any thoughts?

    Agreed, i've changed to full burst from burst hybrid, the other 5 points will go into absorbtion skill (soul tree)

    and the extra crit dmg is nice aswell, and the extra boost at base damage for burning swirl.
    This all together will give 4 good AOE skills with high dmge and that's even without the lv 85 OP AOE skill XD

    HVS is better for pure burst, whit all the talents it gets is now awesome, MFB rarely gets any use outside getting soul bullets

    it used to be very good, it was my number 1 single target attack, by far.
