How about giving us back the pushback on stockstrike and keeping the mezz? That way people can't just use a slow to prevent the mezz from being useful. I assume the idea was: someone charges you, you stockstrike, he is mezz'd. Run one or two meters, and cast a GR/TM. Works if the opponent has sh|t-for-brains, but if the opponent spends a random slow, the mezz is a waste. You will not be able to run away from him and thereby cast a GR. You are forced to use insta-attacks or other cc/utility moves. So what is the point of the mezz? A combination of knockback+mezz on stockstrike would have fixed the mando/merc completely, IMO.

That and make adrenaline rush activate at 30-35% hp and heal you to 35-40%. And reduce it's cooldown. 3 bloody minutes on adrenaline rush? w00t?

Anyone still complaining about commandos isnt current playing wz. There is no way. I barely play my gunnery mando now because its too easy. Not viable in pvp? Are you serious? I can't honesty take these forums seriously anymore...I melt everyone. I'm really sorry but if you have trouble with playing this class you are not good at pvp. Point blank. High burst a kb, root, electro net and hold the line...what else do you need? Stealth?

I'll wait until I satisfied with that myself, or hear from someone I trust whose main contribution to this thread hasn't been trolling.

You know, if it's all the same to you.

I think Combat Medic/Bodyguard is even more dependent on a guard than before but I've found success with it. Managed to break 1.5 million heals and I am still short about a few hundred Expertise (much less anywhere near min/max'd). I do hope that we don't end up as collateral damage -- it seems as though another 1.2-esque healing nerf is on the way and I hope we don't get gutted when I don't think we're the ones over-performing.

Yeah, I'm not sure what to make of CM healing.

I *love* having an awesome CM on my team like Donna or Ritzi, but there is no denying that sages and scoundrels can pull out much much more healing in total.

I know numbers aren't everything - I'm actually fairly satisfied with my damage output as a commando now, even though the smashers can still regularly break 1800dps because I know I'm mostly doing single target - but I feel like CMs could probably still use a boost to their healing output (or *gasp* sages/scoundrels could come down a bit).

My burst sucks. Sustained could be arguably increased but that doesn't help with the amount of healing going around these days. I'm a lot harder to kill which is great. But with a limited number of strong attacks and the increased HP pools, everything goes on cooldown long before an opponent is dead. I find myself having to use sub-optimal attacks much more frequently.

I have been waiting for a day where I have a nice amount of time to play so I can switch to Arsenal and see if the hype is legit.
