also...why do other classes get stealth and not mercs?

It's pretty unfair tbh

You can heal or dps. Technically speaking mercs can't tank.

Merc tanks are in a good position at the moment, but there is still room for improvement, especially in pvp, where reportedly some players are exploiting the duration / cooldown discrepancy of shield and safeguards. I think the following new utility would be a good QoL improvement and make PVP more fun and interesting for everyone:

Responsive Response
When Responsive Safeguards absorbs damage, its duration is extended by 1 second and the cooldown is reduced by 10 seconds. In addition, the cooldown of Responsive Safeguards is reset immediately when you are stunned, immobilized, knocked down, or otherwise incapacitated.

As for stealth, yeah. It could be taken it away from assassins, barely ever see them in game anyway.
6.0: Do not add that gaudy flashing icon above every vendor's head without an option to turn it off.
