And it DOES cause serious damage.

Listen to it. its sounds the same as if little pebbles hitting your car.. very underwhelming.

Now think about how it would really sound if you had fist size rocks hitting your car...

Granted, it does not give off a violent sound, but if you watch the enemy's health bar while you are chucking the rocks, it suddenly becomes not so underwhelming.

Much as I love my Sage, when I think of Force powers, picking up and throwing clods of dirt at my foe isn't what springs to mind.
It's hard work to tell which is Old Harry when everybody's got boots on.

I think the concept of the pebbles is fine, I just think they need to make it visually look more powerful. It could use more emphasis on the force behind it. Otherwise it just looks like you've got a rockflinging machine gun.

Maybe even if they showed them coming up off the ground and being redirected forward.

They could always have a couple larger items (like the project items, for instance) randomly mixed into the pebbles.

I dont think anyone here is saying it does less damage then the lighitng of a sorc. its about the "feel" of it. You know the looks and sounds vs the lighting from sorc. and in that regard it underwhelming

...and indeed, we aren't worried about the damage, it's fine as is, but the feel of it is just too weak. At least change up the sound a bit, make it feel as powerful as it is.

They need to change it to what the NPC Jedis have. I believe it's Project Storm or something similar. It's like an over loaded project with multiple project throws and I find that awesome. Why it's not one of our moves I'll never know. How can the NPC Jedis have cooler moves then the players?
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Personally, I think both sith and jedi abilities are very inline with their movie and book qualities. Sith are passionate and flashy, jedi are calm and peaceful. I love how my character just looks like she is wandering around the battlefield helping those she can and clearing any obstacle she can't.
