Mine is just move the 70% Kolto overload utility to PTs. Actually reducing the 3 lives of mercs to 2.
No dps nerfs and PTs become viable again.
PTs need more than that to be viable. But that's a big step in the right direction.

The current problem of PTs in 5.0 is actually...mercs. There was no big problem (if any) before.
If mercs are allowed to cast free, any spec without "leave me alone" utility (eg. Juggs - PTs) are focused and out first.
Imo, a reasonable nerf to Mercs will be vital for PTs, Juggs.

They should NOT go live, or they should simply separate the damage output/utilities for PvE and PvE - the same way GW2 did it.

wrong, the actual nerf is a pve nerf.

merc arsenal outperforms according to a "Ranged Burst Damage Dealers (down to -5% of target DPS)" spec.

Once we are happy with the damage output, we can start adjusting utilities to give those that need it a boost and others that are too powerful a reduction.

So for 5 moths QQ in the forums for merc survivability, plus who knows how long studied before 5.0, the only thing you managed are those groupings.
And when the illumination reaches your intellect - who knows when - you ll end to the QQ demands.
So, a year ahead of merc rerolling for pvp .

Is it really so difficult to nerf 1 of the main Merc dcds? Even if you are wrong Merc would still have 2 lives.

TTK is too high. 3.0 pvp required actual awareness, positioning, knowledge of other burst specs, and good use of defenses. Now people just randomly hit stuff because everyone is a livelord.
