I think stealth is very useful...

I hate myself for choosing a sniper instead of an operative

I really really wish Sniper's and Gunslinger's had stealth incorporated into their cover mechanic. Stay in cover for 3 seconds and gain stealth. Moving or attacking would of course break stealth. That would make me so happy I can't even explain it. It's completely insane to me that a "Sniper" would not have even a rudimentary concealment trick like immobile stealth. It just doesn't make any sense.

RL snipers use camo, not stealth.

Stealth by definition implies movement, and snipers don't move all that much.

This I could see happening, but definitely no stealth while moving. That would be *********** OP.

My sniper is 10 levels lower than my scoundrel, but it does the same damage...

I just don't understand why they cant split abilities for pve and pvp...several games do so to great effect.

Its simple, allow the stealth mechanic to be available in PvE, and when you are flagged for PvP disable the skill, everybody wins.....

This actually brought back a memory from SWG (yeah I said SWG) I was a Master Rifles/Master Squad Leader. I would go under cover (Stealth) and with 80m range, I would paint targets and snipe people. In fact a guildie of mine and I would go to the mining outpost. I would go under cover outside the MoP while he tagged himself as PvP with the AFK sign above his head. An Imp "ganker" would come in to try to seize the moment only to get his behind kicked FAST. He would seemingly kill 3-4 imps with remarkable ease.

That is until my cover was blown.

They would claim that he was a hacker. Until I /w them and said "You think he is doing that alone...LOL Yeah I blew my own cover. Got a lot of laughs from both sides.

Good Times

Oh yeah he was a Jedi (Powers)
