My post is means what SWTOR is developed by very stupid people who do not have a clue about PVP.
Heavy Armor - small damage, healing - no damage, there is damage - no healing skills.
Overall i agree with you Darkmatter, but im not sure what you mean other then that...Mercs have heavy armor, decent damage, some healing and still suck horribly in any rated pvp where skill and good abilites rule supreme.
I do good with merc, but i do way better with any other class and its not because i know the other classes better.
I hope overall pvp balance will somewhat restored in 1.7 but the expansion kinda scares me into thinking that classes with already great cooldown skills will be even better then.
