My fave was my sniper. Was Maxed geared even thought thats nothing besides the looks
Have a same assassin.
Cant tank, because I don't know the instances

Also have a Merc, Prot, Sorc, and Op or w/e (it's been years.

What is the state of the state? (a one sentence answer from experienced players is fine

Thanks

I'm reluctant to offer advice as there is going to be some class changes next month. Here's what we know for sure. Classes/Specs changes being addressed next month are [ we only know the specifics for one of them at this point, Hatred Assassin], of the others we only for sure mercs are being nerfed but no specifics how, the other ones safe assumptions can be made:

Sorc and Sage
Madness/Balance -[ Buffed]
Corruption/Seer - [Nerfed heals, how much we don't know yet]
PT and Vanguard - [Buffed]
Pyrotech/Plasmatech
Assassin and Shadow
Hatred/Serenity - [Buffed DPS on main DoT]
Sniper and Gunslinger
Virulence/Dirty Fighting - [Nerfed - Defensives]
Engineering/Saboteur - [Nerfed almost certain plasma probe will be part of the nerf as it's stupidly OP, defensives]
Merc and Commando
Innovative Ordnance/Assault Specialist [Nerfed - Defensives/Self-heals
Arsenal/Gunnery [Nerfed - Defensive/self - Heals, Surge on crit Heatseeker likely]

Mercs and Snipers are extremely OP since the start of 5.0 so nerfs have long been expected. This doesn't mean they will be nerfed so that they are weak, it could simply be bringing back their overperfoming areas to reasonable levels more closely to that of the other classes.


As we are only certain of the Hated DoT buff and Mercs Defensives nerf, the others are not certain, but these are safe bets.

Besides for Hatred Assassin, any advise given would be purely speculative so bare that in mind when choosing the class you would like to play.
