So, here's the deal. With examining the Gunslinger Pathfinder recently, I've come to the conclusion that the Pathfinder is way too easy for his skill class of 10k exp requirement. After that, I got to thinking: Is the Rifleman too hard? The Combat Rifleman is incredibly micro intensive. Mashing the various short-lived buffs to keep everything in motion is hard to keep up with. In comparison to the other DPSes, I'd even go so far as to venture that the Combat Rifleman is the hardest to keep up with on an active basis, when theoretically he should be the easiest. The Survival Rifleman does not suffer from the same problem, but one similar. While he is the caster variant, he's also got a lot to keep track of. To that end, I would suggest that Focus Fire become a toggled ability that drains 0.25 to 0.75 energy per second. Fire Up nor Crippling Fire should not increase this amount, as the Rifleman will already be draining significant energy by having this active.
