I find the sentinel to work well in burning people down in warzones, but there are some glaring things differences I find when compared to other melee's in this game, the class could use a few tweaks which I think are coming in 1.2

Will see if that helps to overall player base.

AGREED


Sentinels are one of the best classes hands down.

-We destroy 1v1 most class specs
-We have SO many abilities to negate damage

Zen- Dot crits and heals per tic
Pacify- 90% acc reduction
STEALTH- if specced negates 100% damage.
Three separate bubbles
Rebuke- Can last up to 30 seconds negates 20% - returns damage to attacker
Saber ward- 50% reduction for 12 seconds
Guarded by the force- use at 1k-3k health negates basically all damage for a final showdown.


IF YOU THINK WE ARE BROKE LOOK AT MY VIDEO BELOW

Which in any other forum for any other class in this game, or other MMO is the very definition of underpowered/unbalanced.
No, just no. Sorry to say it, you are a bad sentinel. If you have ANY downtime, you aren't playing it right. I can take any group of mobs short of the groups for heroic 4-mans and end up with full health after the fight. Hell, even with Kira I'll still have at least 80-90% health. If you are having downtime, you obviously are not playing properly. Use zen every time its up. Use your defensive CD's properly. Use Stasis/acc down move. Use dispatch below 20% health. There is no reason to have downtime. EVER.

No "we" do not. The problem with these boards is that they don't represent the population of Sentinels at large. They represent a disproportionate amount of Watchmen.

Not necessarily the abilities you mention, though Zen works very differently for us Combat spec'd and I have no idea how it works with Focus, but we have a different rotation, different abilities, and different procs on some of our similar abilities.

The board is in the habit of assuming everyone playing Sentinel is playing the same thing but it's not a cookie cutter class. I have loads of fun playing Combat. Isn't that what it's about? Or is it just about trying to impress others with screen shots and videos?
