I'm a guardian player, I agree with the nerf to focus tree. I can't say I like the force charge change, but overall it is a step in the right direction.

The real issue with Merc isn't the nerf to Tracer Missle and buff to HS Missle.

The issue is that Mercs suffer from too much CC lock (especially interrupts) but instead of fixing that they decided to nerf their main defensive talents by 50%.

Also they nerf'd the talent Hired Gun in the Bodyguard tree by 50% resulting in lower numbers by all three trees.

Merc Pyrotech was already behind PT Pyrotech.

You might as well go AFK as a Merc if you get a Sith Warrior on you in 1.2.

If you want to talk about dumbing down a class, check out Marauders and Juggs.

Aside from the resolve change (which everyone suffers from) they will have a field day in 1.2 with all the buffs / nerfs.
