It may also just be the stacking TM debuffs we have which wouldn't be a big change.

Why would anyone think Pyro and not Tracer Missile? Pyro PT isn't nearly as infamous.

That is one point for a TM nerf.

But realistically if they were truly balancing then pyro would be first, spammable 3-5k railshot hits do more damage than TM any day of the week.

However like you said few people play PT compared to Merc.

Still doesn't make sense because Merc Pyro is weaker than PT Pyro, and nerfing Pyro would nerf both. Pyro also takes far more skill.

Annihilation Marauders still beat PT Pyro, and Marauder isn't getting nerfed.

This. If they nerf pyro too much, there won't be a point to them except as tanks.

They didn't say it was a big nerf, just a nerf. Even just adding a short cooldown to TM would fit that criteria for "Bounty Hunter Nerf".

I feel shades of wow coming back to haunt me i played a hunter for years and often got nerfed. We are a ranged class, and because of that melee cries becasue we do damage from a distance. That being said I will reserve judgement till i know what exactly this nerf is, could be something that is not much of a nerf, could in fact be a game changer for alot of people we shall see.

Oh you mean back when Plate Armor wearing Mages were 1 shotting people with "Pre-Patch" Heavy X-Bows of Vanquishing?... lol

Had almost forgotten about that...

I wish SWTOR made me feel the same way UO did back then: Giddy and like a child exploring a whole new world.
