Hey, I am back from almost 2 years away, still loving my Lightning sorc.

Still having problems catching all the aggro, not having problems mitigating it, controlling the action, carrying the random pugs.

I see a lot of players, most of the players in fact, using healing companions in open world regardless of their spec. (watching a sniper use a healer is truly sad.) Still seeing people executing sub-optimal rotaions, still seeing videos of people claiming to be pro while clicking their skills. - I'm fine with all that. - The truth is that the game makes no effort to actually teach people how to play. MMO gaming is trending toward simplification, gamers point to games like SWTOR and complain about 'skill bloat'.

I wonder how much of this lamentation is due to the skill ceiling. - I wonder how many of these gamers complaining about their crappy sorcs use proper keybinds, or gaming peripherals. I cant imagine how I would play this game with anything less than a full numberpad mouse. I have around 30 combat binds, and can activate any of them instantly. - Maybe this is why I dont feel like Sorc dps is 'gimped'.

I don't usually do end game. I just enjoy doing the class story to max level and then rolling an alt. Having said that, I enjoy the class. I have no issues in PvE. I don't PvP. I am in a very good guild that lets me participate regardless of class. So, all this drama is just that. Drama. I may not be tops in anything, but I know how to play, and I contribute. I'm having fun, and I enjoy the class.

SO, in conclusion, this class may not be fun in the high end game content, but it certainly has appeal in many areas for folks who may not be concerned about that.
