I want a class that does the better AOE damage in a PVE setting.

Would it be BH/Trooper or Agent/Smuggler?

Thanks in advance.

I know the Sorcerer has some AOE lightning skill apparently I haven't gotten to it yet.

BH Merc and Trooper Commando both get mega AOE nukes. Both get a skill that fire a barrage that does enough damage to wipe out a whole pack of standard mobs in one volley (Its called mortar for Commando it just takes a few secs to aim it right oh and its AOE is 1.5x as big as the targeting marker).

Merc/commando seems best but my sniper seems faster with single target- at least right now. Boom! headshot.
Not played it but Sorc looks like somewhere in between. In fact the more I look into this class the more it looks like a balanced 'hybrid', even as assassin. Hmm interesting to see what lvl 50 brings/

The Gunslinger/Sniper has an entire tree dedicated to AoE so that would be my guess.

Early game I'd say BH/Trooper /bc they get their massive AoE early, lvl 10, but later in game lightning sorc has same pretty nice AoE w/ force storm and chain lightning. Gunslinger/sniper has some nice AoE too if they go engineering, plasma probe, 2sec frag, suppressive fire, orbital strike.
