My opinion concerning the Lightning Sorcerer, is that it is completely useless in level 70 warzones, and unplayable in level 70 arenas. It does not pump out enough burst to pressure or kill anything in level 70 pvp, and a burst spec is useless if it cannot do either of these.

I started playing my sage again, and I had geared it for TK (~1150 alac), only to find out later how much more fun and deadly Balance is in PvP. I'm enjoying the TK-level crit-gearing though. So I'm not sure I'll change it to the 1860 alacrity gear set -- might stick with the 1.4s threshold @ ~750.

What gearing do you guys run / prefer in pvp?
Beruhl / Zenovia / Lobotomy / Sejanos / Warpunk

The armour debuff isn't the issue.

It's about how many sorcs you can carry through the content, that's why you don't want 4 lightning sorcs in TFB NiM.

There's no fight to be had. Just be honest about it. It's all about DPS in the tightest fights and the developers do not allow all classes to be equally competitive.
Except PT does have an armor debuff though? A video also exists somewhere of 4 sorc dps killing Brontes NIM in 5.0. Now I really wanna try a 4 sorc NIM Terror kill and link the video here.

I agree sorc/sage dps /could/ be better....but it's 100% viable. We had a team running two sages a sentinel and a vanguard for awhile and it worked out nicely then one sage decided he was bored and now play gunslinger, but point is we still killed things like that.
