Operative, Merc, Sorc = healers in order of best to worst.

Operative, Maurauder, Sniper, PT, Sorc, Sin, Merc, Jugg = DPS in order of best to worst.

Jugg, Sin, PT = TANKS in order of best to worst.

You probably will get a variety of answers. But the one thing everyone agrees on is that they need to #NERFOPERATIVES asap! Kidding aside, they really are at the top of the lists.

Also, a plus with stealths is if you want to run MM FPs solo, like Red Reaper for gears you can do it. You can gear up fastest this way supposedly.

I ended up just gearing my healing merc via vet mode FPs, and yeah it's been sort of slow but consistent anyway. And low stress. I usually put it on Hammer Station only, because that's what everyone does now and it's a fast pop.

Hard disagree.

Operative>pt>Sorc>Sin>Mara>Merc>sniper>jugg = DPS in order of best to worst.

jugg>pt>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>sin = TANKS in order of best to worst.

but ofc, an actual discussion about the meta is far more complex and detailed than the overly simplified model above.

so it seems for dps and heals operative is considered the meta. Would lethality or concealment be stronger? I played lethality back in the day and enjoyed it but that was years ago.

Obligatory play what you want because there are class changes in the works anyway.

For example despite the fact its probably the worst dps class, I play a vigi guardian any time I'm solo because it's my class. AMD I too have one of every advanced class.

Indeed. And some people are better at certain classes than they are at the others. I had a pretty fun arcane mage on another game back in the day.

I just ask the meta because it IS more fun to do well in pvp, all things else equal (ie you enjoy things equal etc etc) hell i may make a healer because i do well at that as well.

Just wanted to know the meta to avoid frustration is all Thank you everyone. You have all been very very helpful.

PT at number 2? I assume you mean Pyro, but why place it so far ahead? Isn't the meta still "Kill PT first they can't escape"? Do you mean TR?
