Yeah looking at parsely after the latest patch and the top arsenal merc dummy parse is just barely over 22k while the overall leaders are filled with maras/sents, sins/shadows, and gunslingers/snipers. If you look at overall leaders the highest arsenal parse is 2.5k behind the top. The highest IO parse is still 1.3k behind. So there is a huge gap between the top parses and merc dps. I also find it funny that the top merc parses are IO but using apex predator set with altered rotation replacing unload with 2 power shots and that it's doing 1.2k more than the top arsenal parse. It's so bad that I'm running into problems finding groups because people don't want to bring arsenal mercs to raids.

Yeah I'm now raiding on my sniper and slinger instead. Only get to bring my merc to fights like apex where I can self cleanse.

To summon up a life of an Arsenal/Gunnery Comando Merc nowadays:

Worst DPS spec in game
Pulls out more threat than any other spec - Tanks hate us
CF set (pre nerf) was better than what Apex Predator set is now

And if that wasn´t enough, Apex Predator set requires you to build (pre fight): 10 stacks of supercharge and an additional 5 stacks of power step that last 20 secs and are a pain to synchronise with the tank starting of the fight (drains energy, takes too long to set it and the 5 stacks disappear too fast) - Tanks also hate us for that

Being played as fools vs other specs with worst gear

Too much initial burst and unable to maintain DPS after that

Ok we do have great survivability but FFS we want to kill not play as tanks / healers
