I ended up trying assault. You should try pyro.

That disengage ability would be brilliant. They should make it so that it only works in PvP areas or warzones, so that it has no effect on PvE. In the same way the mercenaries "chaff flare" (threat lowering move) is only useful (and therefore used) in PvE, I don't see why there should be a problem with having a move that only works in PvP.

Or you could have a disengage ability like a Juggernaut's Intercede (on same cooldown) which then grants a few seconds immunity to moves like force pull, grapple and force charge/Obliviate (that way, the disengage ability doesn't become hugely OP in Huttball, though that being said, warriors in Huttball are far too mobile for that warzone imo) :P
You said you would never let go... you lied.

Anyways. Just did 5 ranked matches this morning against a geared (but not top tier) guild. Won most, led damage and killing blows in 3 of the 5 matches.

Still say commando is just fine.

Doesn't mean anything. You would still be better off and contributing more to your team as a Gunslinger.

Hey Werdan/Trace...this thread sound familiar?

it reminds me of all that wasted beta feedback we gave.
For every man there is a sentence, a string of words, which has the power to destroy him.

Go try pyro on a powertech and mercenary both, then tell me how you feel about that being the mercs best PVP option.

I'm dead serious because I agree that Pyro is probably the better tree for merc on PvP DPS. If you try it on both ACs, you will see the problem pretty easily. Whether you make it work just fine as merc or not.

Great. Now imagine if you were using one of the top tier dps classes? you'd be doing about twice as much dps if not more AND also providing utility to your team.

I don't even have a Merc and while some can do well... the class def needs some love.

Really I just think it's awesome that this is the only thread for as far as I could click that had 5 stars.
