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?

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.

OMG clearly who say sorc/sages are doing well are complitly out of the current state of the class as a whole.
Sorc/sage madnes/lightning, balance/tele is at the bottom at the dps list while other ranged dps are outshining the sorc/sages. Also a tons of players in EU realms dosent want to even consider to invite any sorcerers in to high end ops groups, reguardless of your gear, or your player skills, becasue the majoroty of the palyer base decided the cutt off sorc/sages completly out of the ops groups due to their bottom place on list as damage outputs.

I have no clue wich planet or univerese those guys lives on who say sorc/sages are fine but clearly they are all delusional. The numbers are speaks for them self. out of 1000 player 1000 player says they dont want sorc/sages into their group becasue they say they dps is not enough for them. 9.9k or 10.1k or in worst case cenario 8.3k dps is not enough for them? while other classes doing waaaaay more damage over 15k and so on. and compare those numbers and you see why everyone says sorc/sages are weak. So this BS about how sorc/sages are doing good is i clear BS.

Tons of guilds in EU realms are having the same opinions. So cut this sheet about how sorc/sages are doing fine while in fact they are sheet. even the most skillful palyers struggle to even put at least 8.2k dps. thats an issue. Not to mention the other classes how they perform so well and almost Over powering other specs becasue they are bugged. Interestingly thats not a problem? letting runn in teh game with bugged specs with op damages while other classes are struggle?

Yeah right and then always hearing sorc is a sheet sage is a sheet as dps, well f that. people are asking sorc/sage buffs for a very good reason, and not becsaue they want to over throw any other specs they just dont accepting to be at the bottom of the dps list. And they are completly right about that. So how about to support them instead of completly cutt them off form the game. Because thats what is going on now.

YOUR DOING IT WRONG. My Soec/sage both do very well top 5 or 3 in kills, dmg, goals. yesterday my sorce 3 out 6 games i took 1st once, 2nd twice and top 5 the rest of the matches. Dont know what you r doing different but, good luck with that....
