Hey, apologies if this has been posted a hundred time before, Returning player from three years ago so yes I've missed a lot. Looking to hop back in,Question is would anyone have a suggestion between a mara or a sorc? I have played both in the past so yes I know the differences but I have a family now so don't have the time for both so I figured Id let the community help me decide. I'm an average player so I know mara is difficult but I still love the class I would more like use both for ups not really heals just curious what would be best for the long run aka raids and group content.

It's hard to say what will happen in 6.0, but for now Marauders hit harder and are easier to play than Sorcerers. However, if you like being able heal AND dps, then go for Sorcerer. If strictly dps, Marauder is probably better for casual raiding since they deal deal more damage.

if i personally could only pick one, mara.

but i like melee better than ranged anyway, my main is a tank guardian, followed by vigi guardians, then concentration sents/focus guardians. (I have a favorite class, if it wasn't obvious).

How are sorcs hard to play?

I didn't say that. I said that Maras are easier and hit harder / higher dps.

Nothing in this game is hard. You need practice, experience, and a willingness to learn new things to excel in this game.... and life.

Why not both?, Lana Beniko style.
