am i the only one that is annoyed with sent and mar gettin buffed in 1.2 i feel they really dont need it. there hard to kill as it is with there 99% reduced dmg and there bleeds tick for so much dmg and not forgettin there shield that dodges attacks ..... even if they get low on health they stay alive cause of the 99% dmg reduction am i the only one that thinks a new instead of a buff is in order

oh and this thread really isnt for a sentinal and marauder to answer cause i know they will defend there class and say how they deserve to be op and bla bla bla

It's clear they are balancing classes on metrics alone, they are so many bad Marauders and Sentinels out there they are underperforming as a group.

If you actually played one you would notice they are nerfing the Watchmen tree(which we all play) and buffing combat and focus trees. Combat and focus under perform compared to watchmen.

I myself cant wait to get out of watchmen, sentinels should not be a DoTing class IMO.
Combine Force Melt and Cauterize. Combine Defencive Forums and Defencive Roll. Call it a day.

Meh, most of these 'buffs' are to the two trees that are under represented in the game. Although, the two skills being replaced as no cost and off gcd is pretty helpful, especially the interrupt at 6s spec'd.

The spec you're describing annihilation, didn't get buffed, just the others were brought up to be more in line with annihilation. All in all annihilation got a small nerf.

No, they are not OP, and I'm not even playing one to say this.

Exactly, too many terrible players couldn't handle playing the relatively difficult annihilation spec so Bioware buffed the ever living crap out of the face roll easy rage/focus trees so even those terrible muras/sents can rip you apart. . . yay for balance

I'm not sure how you view the 1.2 changes to Sentinel as a nerf to Watchman because nothing DMG wise was changed to the Watchman tree as far as notes go.

In my opinion even after 1.2 Watchman will still be better then Combat and Focus in both PvE and PvP.
