Just don't mess up another class when you fix one.

Also no mention of PT tank either

At the least gimmie something to replace the worthless Transpose. Heck just let me at least Transpose people in vehicles. :/

Disappointed lightning isn't on the list. Corruption seemed fine so it's probably a nerf. But lightning isn't viable in ops or PvP. It needs love.
Thank you to everyone who has used my referral link over the years and to all of the wonderful people I've met on here.

No lightning on this list makes it poor by itself.

Some facts and opinions about lightning:

Currently worst in sustained damage of all current disciplines by a whopping ~15%. This alone should make it be buffed asap.

Currently worst in all burst damage of burst specs by an extreme margin

Defensives are only better than Jugg and PT Defensives, so below average here too

I've been playing Sorc DPS since late 2.X and the only time that Lightning has been above useless tier was for a brief period in early 3.X before it got nerfed to the ground. Even during that period it was wose than both of its contemporaries in Mercs and Snipers in PVE content.

And it's not being touched until after this summer when it's spent 6 months already as the worst discipline in the game?

I hope the fact that Lightning isn't in the list yet is because they are discussing it at length as to how to make it epic and amazing again. Surely this is only the first batch of changes that is to come as long as Bioware will consider returning Force Lightning to Sith Assassins and its Jedi counterpart to Jedi Shadows with the optional utility of having it be castable while moving to keep the class' mobility, I will be content.
ATTENTION: Include the Twi'lek into the 3 new eye colours from Appearance Options: Expanded Selections in the next patch. It was a huge mistake to not do this from the start as they are being grossly neglected as a playable species.
Oh yeah, and this is my referral link!

Agreed! Right now Transpose is good for literally nothing other than trolling people in groups, and due to the channel it's not even particularly good at that!

Sad to see that Sharpshooter/Marksmanship won't be in the first round of balance passes. I was hoping they would get a buff to damage and or mobility. I guess I'll have to wait and hope they're included in the next round.

The fact that Lightning is not even on the list.... I already know this is going to be terrible.

It makes you wonder what they have against Lightning, no? Give the Sith Sorcies more love!
