I have finished a Marauder and Merc to level 50 and want to try sorc. I want to PvP ONLY. Is sorc fun/good in PvP for Dpsing or no? And also why?

Yes - solid damage + best utility in the game outside of sins. And lightning (some say it gets old but I disagree)..

Leveling one now and it's pretty great. The utility is amazing, it's the only class besides Operative I don't have at 50.

Definitely would say I am having fun.

sorcs are great fun as long as you dont want to be competitive vs any pt, sin, jugg or mara with one quarter of a brain..

oh and snipers will blow u out of the water if u cant get them out of their cover or los

as a sor cu can do well vs..... other sorcs... and mercs of course

Is it fun? Yes I love my sorcerer and would not think of playing another class. Is it competitive as in are you going to be a dps star? No, just the way it is if you want massive numbers and destroying the opposing team play something else you can have decent dps but you will not be the all star.

Well most of all I want to have fun. Although this may be very hard for me since I am relitively used to being top 2 as a Sin or Mara, I actually may try one. One noobish question though lol what is "utility?" And I am thinking of doing a madness-lightning hybrid spec that will not allow me to get the creeping terror ability and give me chain lightning instead, Is this worth the trade? (Chain lightning vs creeping terror)

My original main was a Sorc and to this day it is the only ac I've that I went a leveled a 50 of its mirror (sage) on, so yes I am a fan.

Sadly the lightning tree that first attracted me to the class pre-launch is terrible in pvp and to me feels clunky in pve.

That said, I have spent significant time as

1.full madness
2.full heal
3.21/20 (back when it was mez not stun)
4.heal/madness hybrid (a blast in unrated and great for soloing)
5.0/13/28 back pre 1.2

And have enjoyed every single one of those variations

For progression content and top end pvp I dps on my sent and heal on my scoundrel, but for sheer fun factor I very much am a fan of Sorc/sages

if the other team allows you to free cast apply weaken mind - X3 distrubances - turbalance - tk throw - tk wave - project then its the funniest class next to guardian/jug but if u are attack prepare to die alot
