Tone down safeguards? lewl. If thats all they do then HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM.

I can literally tank an entire 8 man squad for 45-50 seconds on my healer merc. ES>Warzone Adrenal+Kolto>ES>Safeguards>ES (if its reallly high dmg, ES wont be back so it will be safeguards after Kolto, then ES, then maybe die). This is effecitvely 12000HPS during that time just from DCDs.

Almost a year, and people still haven't figured out snipers were far more OP?

Thanks to everyone who has used my Refer a Friend link over the years, may the force be with you.

Wait, what?
Musco and Charles said in the stream they were done with the balancing. They may make more changes if things aren’t as they expect them to be, but otherwise they are done.
No where have I read in the roadmap or heard them say they will be doing any more changes than what they’ve already announced.

For now I'm expecting a change to Merc/Sniper, nerf Mara regarding one utility and maybe a buff to Powertech.
Mara will receive the softer nerf (tune down Ruthless Aggressor). Snipers and merc better get some solid nerf though, with a clever replacement. (I hope they simply do not just nerf said utility, they need to be replaced with something else. Even nerfed, the increase to TTK is still way too much).

No love for Juggs? Especially DPS juggs . DPS sorcs could also use some love.

For juggs, they need to tune up Enraged Defense, and they will be fine imo. Before, Enraged Defense could heal you for a significant amount with few charges. Now every attack will bypass it.

As for sorc, I don't see how you could improve them with utility... But I haven't touched mine in PvP since a long time.
