This is what I was thinking. How many noobs does it take to kill a sorc at 5%?

The funny thing is when the 3 people pause and stand there ready to use their execute ability.
Why are you trying to make these bad players better? I love it when they use Barrier like that, I kill the rest of the team while they watch in the protective bubble just waiting to die. Keep using force barrier the way you guys are its working.

To OP: This is why you end it somewhere between 8-9.9 seconds (if you're trying to stall so the rest of the team can do something else, otherwise you can do it sooner for added unpredictability) before throwing a grenade at the 3 warriors and then sprinting around the nearest LOS before they can get up, popping unnatural preservation/bubble during the sprint. Heal more when around the LOS and they have to chase you.

Even if you still don't get a peel, you keep those 3 warriors busy by yourself a good 15-30 seconds longer than they would have been otherwise.

They're using force barrier wrong and you are just bad at pvp.....

Advise to the sorc (sage):
1. Dont waste the CD if death is imminent. Just respawn and get back to business.
2. Dont wait until the full 10 seconds is up before attempting to get out of dodge. Pop out early to give yourself the element of surprise - overload, WZ medpack, force speed, unnatural preservation, resurgence. A lot of times using force barrier, gives me enough time to get unnatural preservation off CD and allows me to use it again.

Escape is not always successful, but when done right I've got a pretty good shot at it. If the rest of your team is incompetent or if your the only healer, yea...your pretty much screwed.

Advise to you:
1. Question: Does it really take 3 of you smash monkeys to finish off 1 lowly sorc? Thats pathetic...
2. If there are other targets available nearby, don't waste your time waiting for the sorc to come out of his barrier. You're potentially missing out on DPS to another enemy (probably with low health) or another pesky healer (probably healing the sorc in his barrier). Switch targets and be ready to come right back to that sorc once you notice him out of his barrier. Ususally switching targets will cause him to come out anyway and if he's good he'll be able to escape from you and heal back up using the method described above regardless.
3. Don't choreograph your next move. Let him think he'll be safe and left alone, then get right back to tunneling him. My new favorite thing to do to a sorc/sage once he pops force barrier is to let off him, stealth, then circle back to him. He thinks (or hopes) he's safe and I open back up on him - finishing him this time.

This post made me laugh because every time I see this I turn around and focus on something else while I got 4 of my monkey team mates just standing still...waiting...

This.

If it's a healer, leave a person on it, and have them build rage/focus by using strike on the bubble. Then Vicious Throw/Dispatch for an easy kill.
If it's a DPS, and they're at 5%? Leave them. I can almost guarantee they will run off and spend another 30 seconds healing up instead of respawning. Then when they come back, they're low on force, and no longer have lulbarrier. Free kill.

Believe it or not I quite frequently make out alive in those scenerios. Pop my 30s heal and a warzone heal and I'm good to go. More often than not though I pop it to waste someones time cuz its like an aoe taunt. All the herpa derpers can't resist waiting to kill you while your team caps. Hilarious honestly.

Exactly what I do when facing bubble. I will focus something else then kill when bubble comes down.
