Sorcs are my new fave opponent to distress with my meatshield tank.

I'm not sure what all the hate is towards sorcs/sages, but I do play one. This choice wasn't based on reading OP threads or anything - just in MMO's I've historically played squishy glass cannons.

That said, they're not THAT hard to beat, but people haven't figured out the tricks to stomping them. I'd implore everyone to try to figure out what to do to beat them, because 90% of the sorcs/sages on my server get face-rolled by me just because I employ a couple of tricks, and yes i've been in warzones where 80% of the players are a sorc/sage. If you people would spend time figuring out how-to defeat opponents more, than spending time writing up why you think they're OP when they aren't, then your gaming experience would be vastly more enjoyable.

At this point i feel that troopers/mercs are the most OP class. Anything that can use 4 skills to roflstomp players is crazy, add in their heavy armor, shield and heals, and you have a beast of a character.

Here's a few tips for how-to deal with sorc/sages. Melee, interrupts and snipers. We're squishy, we're mobile, we hit hard, but we're not immortal.

Had a 1v1 other day with Counsler.I'm a juggernaught, got nice PvP gear, but he beat me flat.Counslers have too many buffs, I did ~10 k dmg to him, and his shields apsorbed it all + he was healing himself the whole time, when I deal something he instaheals it.In the end I got killed, and I had taken ~7% of his life away, so yeah, counslers are not immortal, and ironicly don't soak up more dmg then tanks.

The joke was your whole post. Do some research and you'll see why. I'll start you in the right direction though:

Force Armor cannot in any way, shape, or form absorb 10k in damage.....ever.

So in otherwords you play a tank that's strengths are; taking damage, interrupting and dpsing. (in order of greatest to least) and you failed to prioritize your abilities with those strengths, by going DPS, take damage, interrupt.. (did you even interrupt once?) and lost a 1v1.


Got it.

Too bad those strengths are non-existant. For a Powertech, if you spec deep sheildtech and actually use the tank gear, you are just as squishy as a dps, barring a few extra hp, and do significantly less dps while also having less interrupts/cooldowns than a dps spec. That's not even going into the fact that interrupts in this game do very little, 8 second cooldown that only affects 1 spell instead of entire spell tree for 4 seconds, at the cost of heat and damage is pretty much useless in pvp.

1. Most tank stats dont work in pvp

2. Tanks cant dps to any great degree.


Got it ?

First off we were discussing his Jugg not your Powertech. I haven't played one and really don't know much about the class. Secondly the part where you saying that an interrupt does very little is where you're already giving up. Inerrupts on sorcs do a lot, if you interrupt them at the right time. Not giving away the prize though, you have to do research to figure that one out.
