SWTOR Imperial Agent Guide - 2.10.1

Rotation & Cooldowns | Patch 2.10.1

A rotation is a system for ordering your abilities in a way that maximizes your damage, threat or healing. Mastering a rotation will help you to quickly prioritize abilities during actual encounters so that you will always have the highest possible output as a Lethality spec Sniper (Imperial Agent.)

Single Target

Single target rotations are designed for maximum damage, threat or healing on one target at a time. Single target rotations are more effective the longer you are able to focus on the same target.


Execute the following ability priority for optimal damage, threat, or healing on a single target.

  1. Shatter Shot If nobody providing the debuff.
  2. Explosive Probe
  3. Weakening Blast
  4. Corrosive Grenade
  5. Corrosive Dart
  6. Cull
  7. Series of Shots
  8. Snipe with Laze Target
  9. Ambush
  10. Rifle Shot

The key to the Lethality spec Sniper priority system is to remember the following:

  1. Maximize Energy regen by staying above 60 Energy as much as possible.
  2. Use Rifle Shot if below 60 Energy.
  3. Maintain the DoTs from Explosive Probe and Interrogation Probe
  4. Maintain the DoTs from Corrosive Grenade and Corrosive Dart
  5. Follow the priority list and use higher priority abilities as often as possible.

Multiple Target (AoE)

Execute the following ability priority for optimal damage, threat, or healing on multiple targets.


  1. Orbital Strike
  2. Fragmentation Grenade
  3. Corrosive Grenade
  4. Suppresive Fire

Burst Cooldowns

Burst cooldowns are used to increase your damage, threat or healing for a brief period of time.

Survivability Cooldowns

Survivability cooldowns help keep you alive and provide relief to healers.
