I want to dps as either a sith sorceror or bh mercenary because i want the option to switch to a healing spec at end game if id like. My question is which do you guys think would be better in terms of dps and even healing and why?

right now inq looks like the better healer, but bioware is attempting to make everything equal so bh healing may get a boost in the near future

While sorcerers seems to currently be easier healers, I think the classes are pretty even at end game. And since you're also interested in DPS, mercs all the way

I am going sorcerer. I feel like there is a very clear healer, pve, and pvp tree. It has been a while since I have played an MMO. Need an easy button to get myself back in. BH will be my alt though.

I thought Inq's were all melee (with lightsaber) but guildie told me they have alot of lightning attacks Is Sorc kind of ranged DPS, mostly ranged etc?

All I played in beta was BH Merc which i liked but playing a shaman in WoW the lightning bolt throwing caster is tempting!

Sorc are TORs "nukers", if you ever played a mage in any other MMO that is what they are modeled after.....

Well for a start there are 2 inqs, sorcerer and assassin. the assassin is close range stealthy lightsaber stuff and the sorcerer hardly uses it at all, just stays at range and does lightning.

I havnt played the inq yet but. In beta I was a consular. And it was a sage was a ranged.dps or healer. And shadow was the doubleblade lightsaber tank or dps. So I am sure inq is the same way. Assasin is doubleblade lightsaber tank or dps and sorceror is ranged healer or dps.
