Ehhh, Why on earth are the dps sorc's getting a defensive nerf?!?! I dont understand that at all.

Corruption / Seer ofc, it's needed, but to nerf the dps sorc's defensive's, in the state they are in?? Not to mention no buffs to Lightning / TK..

I am really at a loss for words. I think there is a big disconnect happening between players and dev's. This blows my mind for real...

Step 1 give tier 4 gear to save command System.
Step 2 nerf classes back to below tier 3

These changes will undoubtedly look and feel harsh to players who have been healing on their Sorcerers / Sages for a long time.
Local sage healer who's been at it since dawn of time isn't even surprised.

Real game combat was being twisted by the existence of sage output in a way that the other healers were unable to match.

I do get that sorc healing needed a nerf, considering that it was basically the only class that you could take 2 of them into 8 man Nightmare operations. The impression though that I get from the size of these nerfs is that this might be to large especially when looking back into the past at the way that sorc heals have needed to be buffed.

A better approach to changing the sorc healers would probably be to make the nerfs smaller first and then wait to see if they are still over performing. TO compare games this seems more like how the initial balancing was done in Starcraft II, which for those that didn't play the game were done poorly. I do get that there are limited resources to go around, but doing smaller changes allows for better tuning instead of trying to make massive changes and then realizing that you have to go back and either undo the changes or make even more changes because the target was missed.

Are you guys thinking about putting the new changes on the PTS so you can players test them and get the feedback from it?

Now that's a slaughter. Are you guys even trying those changes? Those seem over the board.
