So you want 4 classes instead of 8?

Why not? All we would get rid of grinding up a powertech and a mercenary. At least Mercenaries can stop whining about being neglected. More flexibility, and another thing that bioware could profit on.

I mean seriously, just cause you leveled up everything under the sun, doesn't mean we all have your opinion. It would still be 8 fucntional classes, with 3 skill trees. Just mercs and vangaurds coudl swap between each other.

Sheesh.

Maybe they could sell the Tracer Missile insta-cast as an unlock for 350 coins?

(Crap, I shouldn't be giving them that idea...Meh, who am I kidding, they've probably already discussed this.)

More than likely.

Bump, because PvP still burns on my Commando. Degauss is beast, immunity to snares and roots for it's duration or at the very least 2-4 seconds would be game changing yet not overpowered, a small speed boost would also be reasonable yet make a world of difference for a Commando. Preferably the speed boost or movement enhancing skill not tied to other skills ala Tracer/Grav tree reliance. Whole different subject but please tend to the gross and unreasonable reliance of the entire Gunnery/Arsenal tree on the horribly interrupt prone Tracer/Grav round.

A ranged, on demand snare and or root is desperately needed. Sweltering heat as Assault is sporadic and not reliable at best, since the nerf to 30%, even when it does proc it is simply is not enough. Stockstrike Root as Gunnery is simply and fantastically dysfunctional and awkward, a knockbackless melee range only root for a Ranged class, I don't know who or why this made it live but whoever thought it up needs to be taken off Mando/Merc development, permanently.

Never gonna let you go, never gonna let you die!

I am very concerned that we'll get nothing, but a root on our kb in 1.7
