Why so many people in online games prefer to faceroll their face off than achieve something with a little bit of skill? Almost every WZ i enter there are like 6-8 inquisitors in one team. I cant even see map cuz everything is purple, so many stupid lightnings. I never get that, why ppl roll classes that are easy and for newbs, just like ret palas in wotlk, just like frost mages now. Please BW nerf sorcerers. Sick damage, like 3 imbollizes, stun, bubble, bubble-blind, healz, sprint, constant channeled slow, knockbacks. I mean it, what the...? I just was in WZ where total number of players were 16, and there were 13 inquisitors... PvP in SWTOR isn't cool anyway, but sorcerers make it even worse. Please do something about it because this is riddicolous. See ya peeps and may the force be with You.

I know. I'm just laughing at how he expects us to believe he is the one stalwart defender of what is right.

Drink a cup of concrete and harden up. Seriously, did you die in a warzone and decide to get mad? If you end up against that many sorc's I suggest learning how to disable them instead of typing a post here. Most of us didn't roll because it was an 'easy' class or because we wanted to 'faceroll'. I made the class because I enjoy it, and because I wanted to heal. I'll be sure to come and post when I see a whole warzone of mercenaries ... because you know posting makes it easier for me to learn their skills and how to make them less effective...

Learn to cure your effects, or get someone else to. Interupt their heals, rip down their bubbles. With that many sorcs, there would have to have been an equal amount on your team to heal you, dish out the CC back, cure the slows/dots, etc. However I imagine if you were calling for nerfs in their channel, I'd avoid helping you too...

Oh, and be careful. Just because one sage/sorc can get 300k damage/150k healing, doesn't mean all of them can. Like ALL classes there are the best of their class and the worst, and the average. The 'average' sage/sorc I see either does high damage, or high healing. I very rarely see both being high unless we're referencing premades, but that is a whole different ballgame.

the other day i saw a sage do over 500k damage in a republic v republic huttball. I've never seen another class do that.

I also regularly see sages do over 450k healing.

Then there are the hybrids that do 300k damage and 150k healing.

I'm a decently geared sawbones and I'm very happy when I break 300k heals.

and if raw numbers aren't enough, you're right that the amount of utility they have is absurd. The fact that a sage can force speed through a fire trap and then rescue the ball carrier through that same trap... well all i can say is it looks like a lot of fun.

It really is as if they designed consulars first, were determined to make them really awsome, and then got over to scoundrels and were like "wait a second... well if we give them the same stuff it'll just seem silly.. soo.. uuh.. they get..stealth? flashbang? screw it i tired myself out making sage awsome scoundrels will have to be content with funnier dialogue"

Sorcerer/Sage is OP, everyone knows it. The only people that say otherwise play a Sorcerer/Sage, which also happens to be 50% of the population now.
