How useful are prec mm nowadays?

Old player returning here so I'm not familiar with the new 80+ instances and stuff besides the new Freedom Falls stuff. Anyway, I'm wondering how useful prec mm are now because I just see a bunch of requests for aoe classes/builds these days. When I asked a guildy he suggested I go hybrid prec/burst (which I currently am), but the problem is I don't think I can keep this up for very long with my poor gear and being one of the few free players limits me on getting decent gems (NC is my only source of income). I'd really like to go prec but not if I don't have much use for helping guildies for that one boss every once in a while.

    honestly precision is one of the best supports in instances, now that you get salvo or absolut bombarment skill at 85, aoe isn't much as an issue as before

    any group benefits from a precision marskman, specially on bosses

    if you have problems getting gold, level up your mining and farm fusion gems materials to sell

    Awesome, thanks for the suggestions. Currently 79 atm so I'm still a ways from 85. How would I go about doing HR (for gate, luck daily) with a lack of aoes though? I don't want to have to wait till 85 to get a Cornerstone for the aoes.

    Replying a bit late, but I'm soul and I really struggled with AoE in Hell Road. Here's what I did

    I beefed up my pet and bought him a purple AoE competence. He does a lot of damage, dies, regens and tries again. Stocking expensive pet health pots and food keeps him going longer. He keeps some the agro off me.

    I also had to put mastery points in earth to beef up my aoe rather than fire for my single shots.

    Third thing I did was keep swapping targets rather than taking down one and moving on. This was before we got the new AoE skill, so you might not need to do that now.

    PS and of course Doubleshot on the aoe's.
