Deception

Crackling Blasts now increase the critical strike damage dealt by Surging Charge’s Discharge effect and Ball Lightning by 10% (down from 30%).
The damage dealt by Ball Lightning has been reduced.
Voltaic Slash now consumes 20 Force (down from 25). Damage dealt has been reduced with respect to the cost reduction.
This was from 4.0.3 in december 2015.
ball lightnings somehow keeps overperforming all the time

Honestly, I'm just curious to know why you think that, especially since you're playing mainly a marauder, who is -at least for fury and anni- far above Deception in pvp because of its current defensive (and raid utility -> speed and defense, even blood thirst if really needed). Deception does have Guard for others, which sadly don't combine well with its light armor, leading often to a choice «do I save him or do I save myself ?». Stealth out now doesn't work well, because every ranged attack and half of the melee attack has an animation that will hit you in stealth anyway. The class only had its dps in a warzone, and even in PvE. Now with its current state, without any real burst it wont do anything, and will just die trying.
Peoples will again prefer to bring a marauder in a group, for both PvE and PvP :/
Glad to see I farmed those 300CR for this Good luck for those who stay on this game, I'm out. I don't see why I should stay for an abusive relationship like this if there is no incentive to play at all it may be a cool franchise, but it is tainted with too much error from BW to keep its appeal for me ^^

Cya all somewhere else, now gotta decide where to spend my money on something worth it

🙄 I think you may have your information mixed up a little, they were nerfed because of OPS, but honestly, who cares why they were nerfed.

Four to five more rounds of these nerfs and PTs and Juggs will be fine.... Keep them coming hopefully every class gets their utilities and DCDs nerfed too.... Funny the main thing the PVP community wanted was a Merc nerf and reduce the slow spam and somehow it has turned into this mess. In the end we still have slow spam and Mercs are even more OP. We probably will see PT and Jugg nerfs before Mercs survivability is addressed. The Merc community must have a powerful lobby group.

The only thing Anni is better at is fighting Arsenal Mercs and Snipers. When I say better I don't mean good enough.
If the utility that gives Mercs reduced CD for Energy Shiled (Energy rebounder?) would only work on direct single target dmg we could talk about Anni/Watchman in PVP, but now with only yolo and regs popin' where most played toons besides mercs are Concealment Ops and Deception Sins!?
....Anni is the worst mara spec for fighting Concealment Ops and Deception Sins, not the the other two spec are good enough. It's just that a clicker with basic knowledge of the game can beat any Anni mara if playing Concealment (that reduced CD on evasion ), Deception is a bit harder but not by much.

On the topic, PVP wise I don't agree with this Deception nerf.

I don't mind the nerfs, mostly because the better classes are gonna get their PvP utilities absolutely obliterated.
