So apparently, according to an article posted here :

Bounty Hunters (and presumably Troopers) will be getting a nerf.

What do you guys think this nerf will entail? A slight CD time on Tracer missile? Less damage on it?

I want to know what it is.

Whats the point in leveling up a BH if its about to be hit by a huge nerf.

As BW feel its in such a final stage that the press can be told about it then I as a paying player would like to know.

I doubt its Tracer as wouldnt that then mean trooper grav round would be getting the same treatment yet isnt mentioned, or was it not mentioned so that the QQ could not start.

As a hybrid PT not bothered personally by tracer/grav IMO its not OP anyway just no skill noobs QQ'n rather than just LOS them.

Well the way they put it out there, I'm guessing it will be a huge nerf. They didn't mention just a tree restructuring for BHs, but they used the word nerf! I haven't seen them be that blatent before, so well see. I like this game, but not rolling another alt. I'll just drop my subscription. I'm a healing speced nerf, so it probably wont hit me bad, but feel sorry for others.

It's well known that the best PVP class is currently tank-spec'd Assassin, followed closely by marauders and operatives.

Why would they nerf BH's????

The statement makes me think that BH is going to get nerfed on all fronts, healing, dps and tanking.

Wish a dev would come in and give us some clarity before everybody hits the QQ-OMG-BBQ-SAUCE button.

my guess is that since it doesnt mention troopers that it is an animation nerf. We will have the same animations delay like them.

Well my son plays a Sorcerer and can out heal me all day long. If they nerf bodyguard healing then this X Bioware fanboy is going to be saving $15 per month. I don't mind class balance and actually encourage it, but BHs single target DPS isn't that great. Their AOE DPS is their bread and butter. If they nerf their DPS to much then who would want a DPS speced BH in their group?

If it were just an animation change it wouldn't be a nerf. I think this is gonna sting! Buffing warriors/knights? Really?

Not a nerf... it's called balancing... I am always for balancing because I don't feel one class should be a lot better than another. Believe me, I don't want BH getting nerfed because I love the pvp numbers I put up every wz match, but if it means that some of the things I hate get balanced, then so be it!
