If it's a damage nerf, what is done to fix survivability?

Because right now, even with the "OMG I WAS 10 BILLION DAMAGE SHOT" Tracer Missle, mercs are one of the squishiest (and oddly Pyros....BH DPS specs as a whole) classes out there.

Low Damage + Low Survivability = ...fun?

A good PT is more squishy than a merc, unless the merc is full arsen, then its about the same.

My burns are instantly reapplied every 3 seconds, have fun spamming cleanse.

You have a 1 second window for burst....cool story bro.

Burning is applied->burning is cleansed->you have no burst but your opponent does->rinse and repeat until you blow your shield and running around not knowing what to do like all Pts do when they run into someone competent.

You can go back to bragging how you pwn garbage marauders but here is a hint, everyone beats up garbage marauders.

Your mad now aren't you bud?

Your clearly incompetent and you don't know a thing about PT's.(more specifically pyro)

Our burst damage is dependent on reapplying that burn, reapplying that burn refreshes our rail shot which enables us to burst.

While were applying the burn, were bursting.

Cleansing is useless against us and doesn't stop our burst.

I never once said I pwn marauders? Where, quote me.

Marauders and sins are the two classes that flat out beat Pyros.

Quoted for lulz because you just contradicted yourself.




And because I'm nice and you're slow I'll point it out....

You need a burning debuff up to burst. Cleansing removes the burning debuff. Ergo, with no burning debuff, you cannot burst because you have no access to railshot.


So I'll wait while you try and point out how spamming powershot to get burning to proc is somehow burst.

i agree bounty hunters should be buffed rather than nerfed.

You just too sad, the point im making is that to avoid our burst you have to constantly spam your cleanse. You cant fully cleanse our burn, our skills are all instant and fast. We can burn then railshot before you can cleanse the burn.

And you no nothing about our burst...

We have 2 stuns which also allow railshots burst.

Also, PT's ( the class ive been talking about ) doesnt even have powershot.

Ergo, your bad.

+ We use flame burst, an instant, spammable ability with no cd to apply our burns.

You have 1 gcd window to get a railshot off before your burns are cleansed.


The cleanses are on a 4.5 second cooldown and get 2 of your burning debuffs. So while you are dicking around trying to get burning back up on someone and get a railshot off, they have 2 free gcds before a cleanse to apply burst to you.

My burning has a 100% chance to apply on an instant hit with no CD.

Right-o.

Like I said before, you should go read up on our basic skills like flame burst for instance before you pretend to know anything about this class.

Keeping my fingers crossed.
