Ya screw that. I'm just going to do the story and bounce.

What are you talking about. Solo Ranked on the PTS was swarming with Deception sins, and they were topping DPS in many games, with unbelievably high burst and double vanish. In regular WZs, the story was very similar. How did you ever get this idea? They were literally one of the strongest specs. So much so, I expect one of their set bonuses to be nerfed before 6.0 hits live, which will make them less broken, but still incredibly strong.

HAHAHAHA I just read this and had a good chuckle. Any half decent sniper, merc, con op, leth op, or sorc can 1v1 a dec sin and destroy him. There will always be skill imbalances but sins are like bottom of the meta, barely ahead of jugg and pt dps. should be interesting to see how 6.0 changes that. krea says they can 1v1 hlrs.

I don't know about sins being viable. I've read lots of different opinions about that. But about 1v1 healers... I don't think that's necessarily because decipti-sins are suddenly god mode. From my understanding, it's because healers got a big nerf. I think people are saying that you can insert "'any class' can now 1v1 healers"? I don't know if that's true (next few days will tell I guess), but any time I've read about healers being potentially in trouble now, it's always in context of healer nerfs. Not in context of some dps improvements.

This is a gross exaggeration. Sins have not been that bad in 5.0. They are well above jugg and pt dps. Also, madness sorcs cannot 1v1 a deception sin of equal skill. For lightning it's doable but by no means guaranteed. Especially because if the sin stalls until acid, they should ultimately win.

They do play PvP, the head producer himself stated 2 years ago, that he has 10k hours of gameplay in this game with PvP being one of his favorite activities.
