Why are you guys so eager to marginalize and discredit the OP? So he thought the spinning attack was the heavy hitter, big deal. His observations are still valid, people are rolling a class that can 1v1 well and can escape a majority of losing battles.

Dunno if its a bug or smth, but since some days they can do this to me. But unfortunatly we have no combat log to see what hits that hard.

so, stop beeing ignorant or blinkered here, thanks.
A crit Project > crit Force Breach > crit Spinning Strike can do this. 3GCD w/ 3rd being instacast(so 3.1 secs)

I probably got 2-4 chains off like this a warzone on my Infiltration Shadow. Since Force Potency increases their crit odds, they really only need Spinning Stike to proc a crit.

But you have to be a Sorc/Agent who didn't pop shield w/ expertise that high for this to happen typically. Otherwise, you wouldn't be at < 30% after the first 2 hits. That or your health was prob closer to 60%, than 75%...

A crit that high sounds like a pocket sniper was about waiting on your concentration to focus on the melee, and then he/she zapped the crap out of you.

NEVER seen 6k crit on anything buy a sniper, on stims, buffed to the max and using a super combo.

You've been sniped!

Everyone plays shadows and assassins because Darth Maul was ****** and had a double saber staff. Sin/Shadow has double saber staff or w.e so everyone plays the class.

I know this sounds strange but some people don't roll classes just because they need to be OPed to win in pvp.

I encourage the op to roll a sin or shadow and see how it's probably bottom wrung on the ladder as far as class overpoweredness is concerned.

People might say sniper, but good snipers that know their rotations and how to que burst are ridiculous if left unchecked.
