Since a big factor in commendations is total dmg, I'd say it matters a lot.

I agree. Lets make every class exactly the same. If you want to be useless and pad damage numbers then play a class with lots of AOE.

Not the point my post I was having a hard time understanding how a class was working so I asked a question no were did I complain in my post at all other then to say I have been finding it difficult to get my 2.5k single hit medal at times.

This was not a pissing contest between BH/Smuggler DPS it was a question on how they are doing that and it was explained by someone fairly well so now I understand the mechanics...

I can say from my experience* note the my experience part for those you that have a hard time understanding...* I am level 33 BH mercenary pyrotech tree speced, *Note my level as I stated in original post...

PAUSE***

To re addressed I am only level 33 and have already stated I did not know how much gear effected things at level 50... this here implies that I am asking questions or asking for clarity not making a statement...

Question
A sentence in an interrogative form, addressed to someone in order to get information in reply. <=== what I was doing

Statement
A communication or declaration in speech or writing, setting forth facts <=== what I did not do

END PAUSE***

So back to what I was saying Smuggler is the only class I have seem break 4k in a single hit consistently( meaning not just a lucky crit), but I do not know if they are the only class that can do this. Once again I will say this is what I have noticed so far maybe I focus on them too closely because I originally wanted to play republic smuggler side but, my guild rolled Sith so I played BH (The other class I saw that duel wields pistols) Yes that is the bases of my choice I liked the idea of duel wielding pistols so I picked my class on that and went from there...

So if anyone here has seen another class that can hit this hard regularly please post and explain the skills, combos they used and whether its situational (Enemy in light armor, powerups, ect.)

Except most PvP sorcs are specced to also be quite survivable, that absorb shield is actually the main factor behind why most people flame about Sorcs, since they can throw up that shield to survive some focus fire, heal themselves for a good amount while under the effects of the absorb, then continue to nuke people to kingdom come.

Just like the BH/Commando issue, the Sorc has too much of there good stuff easily accessed low in there tree meaning they can duo and even tri-spec and be more effective than someone that is fully specced in one mastery.

I can see this changing simply because there is no reason for BH/Commando or Sorc/Cons to go 31 points right now as the cons of fully mastering a tree greatly outweigh the pros.

Hybrids should be strong in there own right, but by no means should Hybrids be better at everything which they currently are for some classes.
