OP is clearly a troll or somebody who hasn't a single keybind and is klicking everything :P

I agree, lets buff mercs. They are in such a horrible place. I'd probably want to nerf Juggs, PTs and DPS Sorcs at the same time since its opposite day.

Although im reasonably certain this is a troll post, ill bite cause why not.

I have mained a Merc since day 1 of beta. Pre 5.0 I was as vocal as anyone about the class needing help defensively in PvP. I left that game for a year and came back to find they had literally thrown the kitchen sick at us in response.

Bottom line the incoming nerfs are needed, warranted, and appropriate. Mercs are however not the only class in this place, we all know who they are, and the other 2 often have significantly higher damage output potential. Mercs are the current poster child for the problem, and that is one thing that is misunderstood as it certainly isnt unique to them but thats another discussion.

PTs are to me in the sample place where Mercs used to be. One can only hope they dont make the same mistake twice and over compensate.

Quick reminder, aoe doesn't work that well. A lot of class with procs on their aoe (every sin spec, Carnage mara, fury mara, rage jugg... ) will trigger the defensive anyway even if they aoe. Also... "Not attacking" ? Well damn, I'll be sure to do this next time I play ranked. Freecast is always the best solution

Back to topic. 1/10, try better man. Subtle hint, nobody yet asked to nerf PT, you should check this out and make a post about this too.

If you want to talk about the Miss Understood Merc, we should probably also talk about the Mr. Understood Merc as well. For fairness.

LOL that's just another reflection on the sad state of VGs. No one can even pretend they're op.
