Sage/Sorc, probably.

But a sniper/gunslinger would still be superior to a commando at ranged combat.

I have abandoned my mercenary LONG ago, but I believe that change would make this class(or at least spec) much more appealing. Arsenal can bring out the damage, but I hate the fact that you are forced to stay in one place without cover mechanic. Pyro tree is much more mobile and better pvp spec overall, however it feels like you're poking a bear with a stick and other classes do much better job of being support fire than pyro. Bodyguard - well I didn't play it that much, but I played many times against it and it's laughable easy to shut down if their shield is down on cd.

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
that 1.5s would be filled with the GCD. there is no reason to give it any cooldown, just make it instant in that case.


however, have fun fighitng with people over why that is a) a good and easy fix and b) why it is not overpowered

ppl will always say its overpowered but the instant cast is a nice idea and would help a lot.we now are the worst class for pvp less mobile than elephants

based on some recent dev posts, id say its a solid bet that 1.7 goes to the PTS within a week or two. so we will know if they have decided to fix us soon hopefully

God I love this thread. Full of troll bumps and people fighting about the worst class in PVP, but really Godmode in PVE. Good luck for the fixes though, I think it's awesome how dedicated you are though

you really think they give two !@#$% about class balancing in pvp? because what the hell does class balancing have to do with cartel coins?

ONe thing that would really help us if they got rid of stupid pushback. The way casts are, there shouldn't be any pushback on our abilities.
