a few questions.

1. using this build with ft ONLY (using the reg weapon maybe 5-10% of the time) http://gw2skills.net...JKqMUJoySljKJVA

how will the damage output and survivability be *compared to other classes*?

2. does main weapon affect kit damage?

3. for FT, condition damage or power? (with precision)

4. is there a way to get that huge ugly ass flamethrower thingy off my back?

thanks in advance

1) its fine, almost the exact same build I use except I use elixir c instead of B and U (switch them out if I need to run, normally run U in a dungeon over B and B in general PvE for movement speed)

2) no

3) either or, power gives you a more primary benefit, but as you are normally permanently burning everything condition damage isn't bad either.

4) no unless it bugs.

* From my personal experiences with FT the damage is great and the survivability is good as well, going with jugg as 3rd tier + gear obv.

2. does main weapon affect kit damage?

* Yes the *Stats* of the weapon such as +power +prec and so on will up FT's dmg, but the damage from the gun will not.

3. for FT, condition damage or power? (with precision)

* Precision + Cond DMG is your best bet as a third stat I would go with Toughness/Vit or a balance of both.

4. is there a way to get that huge ugly ass flamethrower thingy off my back?

* No.

thanks in advance

Don't forget, if you can keep up burning indefinitely that's great. But if any other play in your team does the same the only damage you're doing is direct, if you're unlucky. The grenade kit will outdamage you by a ton.

The only condition damage build that can apply all 4 conditions in reasonable amounts is pistol/pistol/grenade and to an extend pistol/pistol/bomb.

Nope, you lose all attributes on your main weapon.

I noticed my HP went down when I activated my FT whilst using my new pistol (which has vitality) just yesterday... So it seems we don't keep our weapon stats :(
