Tbh, I very much doubt a new player has needs for the extra "ommph" another class bring to be competitive in harder HMs and NiM raid *snip

Ok you failed to read the 1st sentence of my post, so I will post it again and underline it.

This is a warning to new players that would make the mistake of rolling this class as DPS with the expectation of playing end game content.

Also your basically saying: yeah sure the class sucks...but you can still do a few things and that's ok.

I'm here to warn new DPS SAGES/SORCS that it's going to be a MAJOR uphill battle until there are changes to the class.

Don't sit here and try to rationalize that this class is still viable for serious endgame or ranked pvp cause you are just making yourself look silly.

Here is a link to the top 50 on Harbinger server on parsly:
You will see that there are 0 sorcs on that list. In fact to find a sorc you would have to dig down to around 500 parses before even finding one.

Be careful that you do research before trying to "FANBOY" this class as viable.
My post said exactly that, for NiM raids and Ranked pvp its not in a good place. For COMPETITIVE endgame, its not in a good place. Not for ALL endgame.

The vast majority of players have no raid teams and don't do anything "harder" than HM KP (or maybe I should say SM ToS/Rav since I think they are harder).

It has the dps, altough it requires better gear than other class to reach it, to clear most HM fights right now, including HM styrak.

I agreed it needed buffs, I simply disagreed on your view and way of crying on the forum and just going drama queen about it.

Lets be real, no new player will do NiM raid or HM revan. No new player will even do HM SnV or HM EC for a damn while.

The new player you are adressing this post to, even if he goes on a darn merc, and get into a regular warzone, if he meets me on my sorc, I'll 100% sure hand him his arse on a plate. 100%. I don't even have a doubt about it.

And experienced players? They already know where sorc is, and why its there. They are sad that they are using their sorc as a casual alt for reg wz and less hard content, but can still have fun with it.

So, conclusion? Your post is just a bunch of whining and crying that isnt useful to anyone, and at worse will drive new players to become FOTM rollers like the vast majority of merc and snipers I see in WZ.

You can choose to be constructive, like I attempt to be in my posts pointing out HOW, realistically you can fix sorc without creating the "new merc". Or you can be like that guy I now have on ignore list and post all over the forums on whatever thread he can find saying "buff sorc in 5.2 or me and my friends leave the game!"

But if you are unable to SEE sorc current state correctly, the good, the bad, and why its underperforming, YOU are the fanboy that wants OP FOTM, and not true balance, not I.

I actually play my sorc in ranked, I actually bring it in some HM raids. The point of view I'm giving here isnt out of nowhere. I'm also not using MERC as a benchmark for how I'm supposed to be performing.

Oh and btw, dummy parsing isnt everything, and we're actually using the 2.5M dummy for benchmark in 5.0 due to the dps level currently reached and the ammount of time a parse must last to start being representative not 1.5M.
