My observations say <random SM pugger> performs better as merc or mm sniper than PT, going by either parses when people join up on raid parses or by being mindful of their casts and resource managements.
both pt/vg and sniper/gs have to weave in basics now. i have both classes at 65. i still find it easier to maintain energy while using fewer of those basic abilities on a pt/vg, and the fact that the class has the fewest abilities of all of the clases in the game, which translates to fewer needed keybinds, puts it head and shoulders above the rest.
