Well, you have a valid point there that's for sure.

hmm, we need to predict this with some real thought.

nerfing operatives/scoundrels made the sages/sorcerers even more OP, and removing the paper to the bounty hunter/trooper's rock.

nerfing assassins/shadows will add to these things even more, but make then once again a target for operatives/scoundrels

bioware will never nerf sages/sorcerers because the fans of the OP will rage, and those are their advertising classes.

with all that being said, we can probably expect a nerf to bounty hunters/ troopers

I'd say if the Sage doesn't get nerfed, then someone there at BW is playing them and is just too stubborn to fix them.
'Coz when you see them nerfing scoundrel, you should know that they don't pick the strongest/overpowered to nerf. Scoundrel is the class that should be BUFFED, by any means, yet they got nerfed.

I mentioned assassins/shadows being nerfed because I heard that will be in one of the next updates to take away the tank/DPS hybrid-ness from them

It seems unlikely that Bioware would nerf their "Beginner Friendly" Class.

Sages and Sorcerers are a crowd favourite so i doubt they'll get hit.

Assassins and Shadows are popular enough to be noticed by the masses, but not so popular people would blindly leap to their defense. They're also the highest on the list of hybrid specs.

Snipers and Gunslingers deal out heavy damage while maintaining a fairly high level/attention cap. People who play them well, will likely persist against any nerf that might befall them, making them an easy target.

Scoundrels and Operatives are still being hated on, so i don't doubt they will eventually be mauled by Bioware again and become nothing but a battered, abused, casualty of war.

This is what i expect from Bioware.

Please note: I do not believe any classes specifically need a buff or nerf, this is merely my prediction on Bioware's stupidity.
I healed, therefore i was...
...No, not a bucket of turkey. A healer.

FUll columi and full battlemaster BH MERC ARSENAL here

Never in my life have i seen a 4k TM crit exept a heavy debuffed target and relic+adrenal up.

normal TM crits are 2.2 to 2.8k

relic + adrenal 2.8k to 3.4k.

The only thing they have to change about TMS ar the stacking heatseakers marks, with 2 BH's hiting the same target + relic + adrenal i crited a guy for 8.2k

If a Sorc crits 1 tick of his affliction he'll probably pwn your face with 2 force lightming and each tick crits for 1.1k (thats like 8k dmg in 3secs)

And believe me i WOULD LOVE if they change BH arround to NOT have to spam TM all the time, and believe me when i say no BH likes to spam TM but its not like we have a option
