Can we trade that stupid immobilize saber strike ability for a viable DPS spec?

Light DPS is the only Ranged DPS spec I can play well and it blows really hard right now

I second that.
Screw them, i saw enough Sorc DPS do good damage in Warzones, the good ones i mean. Not the nubs that come here crying about getting a buff.
They are good where they are.

No. Class homogenization is bad.

...... and you expect to be taken seriously? TB needs a damage buff, that's it. Why would you accept the cost of it hitting less hard, just to be able to use it more often? It should be the other way around. Years ago, it was shifting the damage profile away from a busty TB (it used to hit considerably harder relative to HP pools) and towards a steadier stream of damage with LS turning into LB, that made the spec irrelevant and no longer as unique (glass cannon heavy burst caster). You're asking for more of the same thing that kinda killed the spec in the first place. And why would you prefer to not autocrit every TB? Especially with CL and CD refreshing affliction... like, why is affliction even an issue for you? Consistently refreshing afflictions on multiple enemies via CL and CD is a cool mechanic that skilled players can use to maximize damage.

No, that mechanic is fine. Madness used to be great, and they don't need to fix what isn't broken. There's no excuse for not having max stacks by the time demolish comes back off cd. The more they interrupt FL, the more leeches you get off.

Madness sorc can still do well on the scoreboard in regs but if you don't understand why madness sorc is currently UP then you don't understand pvp (universal you btw ).
