i posted on another thread that what i think they should do is remove the channel from gr and put it in a 1.5sec cd so its instant and has 1.5 or 2 sec cd.that would make as a million times more mobile and its almost the same as before just we are no turrets anymore.

instant cast tracer missle/grav round has been suggested in the past. it was met with a lot of QQ

Actually now that I think about it, they should just let mercenaries become powertechs and vice versa. We already have a skill respec thing, why not let us change classes! That way we have 6 trees to go through and we don't have the suffer the same class story over and over again.
So instead of having 8 classes you want to reduce it to 4?
Thats just a horrible idea

And it is the same class story. Nothing changes bout it.

As a sniper i am against tracer missle being instacast.

why? commando doesnt have anything near the lolcover mechanic... cast times on sniper are fine because u cant be interrupted and u have CC immunity on a button if you need to resist incoming crap.

commando has 0 of theses tools and bioware still made it with cast times, retarded to say the least.

-No, AC respecs would destory the game more.

If Tracer had a CD. It would allow you to keep your heat low because youd be forced to fill that 1.5 secs with rapid fire or possibly MB/ER

They could also increase the crit chance of heatseekers for each stack of tracer debuff or tracer lock. Maybe make it a 10% increase, so 50% total. Would be nice if our heavy hitter was a consistent heavy hitter like smash.

Because no spammable main attack should be instant cast. It would make commando dominate the other ranged classes.

I wonder... How exactly this will destroy SWTOR if I swap my poor abandoned mercenary to powertech?
