The only time no one dies is when the DPS are awful and can't play. That's it.

Right now, in PVP there are far more DPS capable of putting out 10k or more in WZs, while for healers not so many whether it's due to class gimping in 6.0, and/or players simply incapable of putting out better HPS. I don't really see how anyone comes to the conclusion heals are stronger now than DPS in general in 6.0.

I play heals and DPS btw, extensively and I can say for a fact the healers I play are far more easy to tamp down and kill than ever before as a DPS, especially sorcs.

Right now, when I am on my DPS merc I can completely nullify a sorc healer; within seconds they are going to be running for LOS or crying to their team to peel me off them. And I am average, average at best on DPS mercs.

Truth is I'd be pretty afraid to run into mercs like Hop or Zachariah who used to play, even on my merc healer the burst when tunneled is pretty intense and I am sure those guys could really pour out some serious damage.

Thing is, there's stronger burst classes than mercs! I just play merc because I like ranged more than playing melee and I always enjoyed mercs and sorcs the best. Right now, I'd rather face a merc over ling sorcs, PTs, Ops, or sin DPS, all of these are operating at higher levels than DPS mercs now, so imagine what average players are doing on those classes when doing DPS?

Yesterday, I was fighting against a PT and sin that were tunneling me pretty good and I really had to use my DCDs smartly to not get blown up in seconds their burst was simply unbelievable. A few times there was just nothing I could do, if my DCDs were down, or I was off by a split second they were able to coordinate stuns and burst me down amazingly fast.

So, I guess we are just going to have to disagree on who is overtuned more, heals or DPS in this 6.0 meta. I'd say DPS are easily the stronger of the two.

See you found the real problem! The majority of players on dps are awful, but they're not really awful, everyone else is just too good.
