Maybe people are only looking at the damage output at the end of the game... but the funny thing is that when I play my Sorcerer, I rarely get focused at all. People generally leave me alone while I sit back and free cast on all the melee going at each other in one big cluster.
Yeah. I am usually highest level sorcerer on the team. I wear high level distinct looking armor. I rarely get focused and I am free to rack up kills unchallenged. And yeah, spot on on the enemy cluster. Seems like Republic on my server likes to play guardians/sentinels and clump up for Force Storm/Death from above. No wonder we win like 90% of our matches.
