the only DPS class that can soak dmg better is merc.... and only because they are broken and needs a giant nerfhammer in the face...... i mean not just WZs where you need to kill a single merc 3 times before he dies.
but also in Flashpoints where the healer and tank + dps dies and seeing the DPS merc tanking and soloing down the boss from like 50%+ hp....... that ammount of healing is broken.........

Really? What about Lightning Sorcerers? Why are you guys sooooooo keen on ignoring that discipline? It's insulting! Please stop ignoring that discipline and its problems and fix them. My God!

Right now, with the right set of utilities, Mercenaries and Commandos are capable of having three lives. This means that killing them is extremely difficult, even with larger number of players. This needs to be adressed. Sniper's AOE slow needs to be toned down as well. Either increase cooldown or reduce the slow percentage by 30%

I don't see how Keith's post would be ammunition against more people complaining that lightning/tele isn't one of their main priorities. Nothing he said changes anything. The fact that the flood of people having to point out this oversight caught them by surprise should be incredibly worrisome.

Of course madness is on the list and not lightning. What do you guys expect? I mean, I only see madness sorcerers in PvP and bioware always listens to the PvP community. That's why they are going to buff madness and leave lightning the way it is.

Thanks for the update!

I really miss out PT/Vanguard Shield Specialist. At the moment the worst tank of all. Please give them the Trooper reflective shield as well as they really need an extra CD.

Furthermore I agree with people that the Lightning Sorcerer needs improvements as well. Till 5.0 my Sorc/sage was my main, but now I havent played her since as she is useless...

for me and for allot of players it shows how much they don't know how broken some classes truly are in the game.
its not suprising tough devs never realy carred about Lighting since release. allways just madness this and madness that..... bleh

The list is ONLY the start and the ones listed may be included in Patch 5.3, but we might move some changes out to Patch 5.4 and include other Disciplines not yet mentioned. For example, notice that Operative/Scoundrel healing isn't on this list, yet. Hmmmppffft. They should be in the list, as I want to see my healers indestructible and completely outperforming all other healing classes! Alas, I know we won't do that, but I'd love it, even for a month!!!

No offense Keith but it's offensive that you guys left lighting/TK out completely when this has been on ongoing problem since 3.0 and makes it feel like we are once again being ignored as previous balances have left lightning/TK off, it's the fact lightning/TK are not getting any top priority that's insulting when it's been a complaint for quite some time now and as my preferred discipline I am not thrilled it is not being made a top priority to fix the DPS output of this discipline so it's pretty hurtful and disloyal and offensive to those of us who want to use this discipline in OPS and PVP and be able to pull our weight in both.

As was already mentioned by a lot of people in this thread, Telekinetics / Lightning was nerfed into oblivion with 3.0 and has been at the bottom of the DPS list since, with a gap of about 15%. It really is time that this spec gets some major buffs. I'm not asking for them to be the supreme champions of the DPS food chain again like they were in the 2.0 days, but get them somewhere decent, please. This spec has been ignored for a long time and is in desperate need of some attention, and no, taking even more abilities from the Assassin / Shadow and giving them to the Sorcerer / Sage is NOT helping. We need more DAMAGE, not more utility.
