Telekinetic Throw animation

Are people okay with the pebble throw animation now? I remember during beta everyone hated it.

I like the class and want to play it because I think Seer and Balance specs would be a lot of fun in PvP, but I cannot get over how much I absolutely hate Telekinetic Throw; it just looks so horrible. I know it is a big part of the Sage damage arsenal too so it is not an ability that I could just not use.

Dude, it ROCKS!

Seriously, it is not bad. I like the variety of animations on the sage.

I guess everyone likes different things. I just think the whole, throw pebbles that appear out of nowhere at a person to be completely pathetic.

Think of them as impromptu bullets.

I personally like it, but don't use it as often on my shadow. I actually dislike the inquisitor animations, force lightning is cool but it seems like almost every one of their abilities is some variation of the same purple lightning. I prefer a bit more variety.

I like most of the animation, but would prefer some sort of orgination point for the pebbles. Like perhaps a whirlwind around you or something. But, already the sage has some animation issues from its mirror. So I wouldn't want any delays in the animations.

My hope was that as the Sage levels, his or her TK throw pebbles increase in size. That way we know it's not just pelting pebbles at someone, but maybe even rocks. Something that hurts xD

I agree that it's not ideal. I'm OK with doing damage by hurling pebbles (hurl them fast enough, it's like a rain of bullets), but just like with Project, there are some locations (e.g. a space ship) where it doesn't really make sense. The appearance of Telekinetic Throw doesn't affect its utility, of course--it's quite handy--but it's a small part of the reason that so far I've decided to go with TK instead of Balance. I can have my Sorcerer do the Madness tree.

That said, I do appreciate the variety in the appearance of the Sage's attacks (Project, Tk throw, Disturbance, even Force Stun), the mirrors of which for Sorcerers are all various flavors of purple lightning. Makes me feel like other players in my party assume I'm just spamming the same key over and over again.
