Seems like sorcs were created purely for low level PvE, with a few of their abilitys stunning weak/standard mobs that's about their only good attribute.

Light armour
Squishy as hell
Poor DPS
Boring abilitys
1 Defensive ability. lol.

I don't get why a class like marauder gets self healing, tons of defensive cooldowns AND one of the highest DPS. Not to mention they also get abilitys like predation to give group buffs. Oh, and gap closers.

well even though there is not question that lighting sorc <marauder. i would not throw all marauder abilities from each tree together in the comparison.

1: 90% of all dangerous pvp marauders are rage. (so no self healing )
2: as rage spec, marauders suffer greatly from active predation (because during predation they cannot get any berserk stacks . aka their rage and shockwave supply is reduces significantly)

I do see the reasoning why we wear light armor, have long cast times, set-ups and the weakest hits. TB is a single target hit, yet it hits lighter than most AOE's. And let's not even talk about lighting storm as a AOE, Channeled and such a light hit in it's own right.
I came at launch I didnt play sorc till 6 months in so my question is didnt anyone say anything in beta about the lightning spec ? cause after playing it for a good while I cant see how the class made it out of beta in this state, let alone more than a year later.

Meh, *any* marauder played well is dangerous. All 3 specs have the means to flatten a sorc quickly.

They are a PURE DPS Class. Meaning all they can do is DPS. Meaning they can not heal nor tank. Makes sense for them to be a high dmg DPS class since DPS is the only thing they can do.

are we really back there again?

a marauder has 3 dps options and jugg has 2 dps options and one tank option and is squishier then a marauder when he is in a dps spec.
so haveing a tank/heal option is not the same has beeing a tank/healer.
