Its not "bad" but in pvp lack of burst and vulnerability to burst make it a challenge, especially when in recruit.
In PvE its a bit lacking in sustained but not overly so.
Mostly, I think only some minor fix would be needed
What I could read from other threads on the forum, the class is more in trouble due to boosts of other classes like Sentinel/Marauder. And when I played before 1.2 with my Powertech Pyrobuild, they hit pretty hard, so I'm not that scared from playing on in PVP - Too much QQ as usual on the forums, instead of adapting and so on. Anyways, you never told me the answer to my first question regarding the stats to boost dots?
I'm not sure what type of attack(tech-atttach?) it is, or how you can boost it stacking WP or POWER (or perhaps other)?
Thanks alot for the update on the class - much appriciated.
