PVE Sniper AND Gunslinger community questions thread

This thread is for the discussion of the questions the PVE Sniper/Gunslinger community wants BW to answer.

The purpose of the spreadsheet is to make the questions "readily available" to viewers. I've added questions from the other thread and you can view them in this file https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...OUTR2aFE#gid=0

Quote:
As you compile your top 3 keep in mind that the goal is provide commentary and specifically questions to the development team which you wish have them address. Try to phrase things in the way of questions that we can answer.

Bad example: You guys are aware that we suck in PvP right?

Good example: We feel that in general our class lacks some utility and cc in comparison to other classes in Warzones. As an example (your reasoning), do you guys feel we are in a good place here? Do you also feel this is an issue?
We need 1 PVE question, 1 PVP question and one other (determined by most votes). If you find a question you like you can vote now or change it before our deadline which is 8/2/13 this Friday.

No questions about rolling in place i guess. It is going to get fixed soon.

Nice Paowee, I'd recommend making mirror threads in the Gunslinger boards that link to your threads over here once the voting for Gunslinger rep is done. The more consolidated this is the easier it will be to follow. I'd do it but I don't want to step on any toes or cause confusion.

If it's going to be fixed soon, then I assume the developers have some idea on buffing Saboteur/Engineering damage to the point where it's much closer to the other specs. If we don't need to ask about rolling, we should definitely ask about what they plan to do with Saboteur/Engineering.

That's the question in our minds. Is Engineering in an ok place right now? In paper, a few hundred DPS above the other specs on large bosses, and a few hundred DPS below the other specs on small bosses.

If say, you want Engineering to be close to the other specs across the board, then that means shifting a big bulk of its DPS from Scatter Bombs ( rolling ) to other abilities in the conventional single target rotation. That could mean nerfing Scatter Bombs and buffing abilities like SoS or EP or PP.

Imo: i hope Engineering/Saboteur stays the same (and that they designed the spec exactly like how we play it now). But who knows It is a good question though, if anyone wants to step in and formulate one (not sure i think it is in the spreadsheet already(?)

Yes definitely, just waiting for their voting to finish. The Gunslinger rep can do the same when their deadline comes (and then the snipers can chime in on the Slinger thread).

I guess in total each class gets 6 questions each. 3 for "itself" and 3 from its mirror.

For my voting on questions:
For pvp I vote for row 4.
For pve I vote for row 3.
For other I vote for the concept behind the specs (as a both pve/PvP thing).
