I know this question is asked a lot by people who just want to be the best at things by not working hard, but this is just a question out of curiosity.

I am looking for opinions on which class has the highest SUSTAINED pve dps.

Sniper / Gunslinger

Operative / Scoundrel

Marauder / Sentinel


Feel confident in that top 3 order, everything else is pretty even as far as DPS specs go.

Op/Sco has the higher upfront damage but sniper specs have long term consistency and less CD's or positioning requirements.

Sniper/Gunslinger I think has the highest burst DPS, but you will blow all CDs to do so and get low on resources.
Ops/Scounfrel has high damage when there burst from stealth/positional moves are used.
Marauder got good damage, and is the best in terms of long term DPS due to resource mechanics (longer fight = more resource to spend).

Others in DPS specs do nice damage as well though from what I seen.
TBH theres not a lot in it between the classes in DPS specs between the 8 classes (I think its something like 20% dps between them).

Right those are highest, which is why like every endgame raiding guild vid I see, they're using at least 2 commando dps.

That's because endgame raid bosses have ridiculous melee skills, PB AoE abilities, knockbacks etc. It's easier to position commandos than sentinels.

Is any of this information based on any real numbers at all? Or is it just what you guys "feel" is the highest?

Without solid numbers to back your claims there is absolutely zero information value in this thread.

Don't belive anything until we have combat logs or damage meters. No one can tell atm wich class has better DPS

I think it's a safe bet to say Ops and Scoundrels aren't the highest at PvE b/c they can only use their big damage attack a few times in a boss fight. After that their sustained damage drops way down.

My list would be (also including the republic counterparts):

- BH Mercs
- Snipers
- Assassins

These classes all have good sustained damage that can burst pretty well at times. No one will know anything of course until we get combat logs that everyone can see. Even if we get personal logs it will be too easy to fabricate numbers.

Size matters not!
