If you ever lag whatsoever sentinel is VERY unforgiving compared to other classes I've played!

I love the Sentinel. Yea, it could use some fixes but tbh, they really don't have to tweak a lot, because it's kind of bordering overpowered.

Very gear dependent though, and I imagine it isn't much different for a Guardian.

You also have to toy around with builds, since it's a class for which you really need to find *your* way to play it in order to enjoy it, more so than other adv classes I've tried.

The thing with Sentinel's is that they can deal out significant damage in a very short period of time. On the other hand, you can die fairly quickly.

Between Saber Ward, Rebuke, Guarded by the Force, Pacify (90% melee/ranged hit chance reduction) Force Camo (which if you spec Watchman, can be 4 seconds of 100% damage reduction) Awe, Force Stasis and Call on the Force, which resets the cd on Saber Ward...the only time I die is in extreme situations or when I'm caught with all of my defensive abilities on cd.

We're really quite well equipped.
I'd say 'IMHO', but it would be a lie. I'm not humble, and everything I say is stone cold fact.

Ok my bad; haven't gotten my Sent as high as my Guardian. Although I doubt you use it as much since you don't have an ability to refresh it's cooldown. And in your next post you mentioned hammering your opponent down. When I said that I didn't actually mean in terms of burst DPS, I meant in the way the attacks feel. The animations and feeling of my Vigi Dps is much that of just battering them down while my Sent feels more like I'm dancing circles around them chewing them up circa the prequel lightsaber fights.
