Enjoy winning your 1v1 with a rage marauder... while he rips the **** out of your teammates in the rest of the warzone.

It's more of an "want to play the most effective cookie cutter spec or not?" matter.


Jugg/guards may be critting harder with their pimped Smash.
But they do not have the survivability Mara does. A rage jugg get focused? He is dead. A mara can make it out of it alive even with no support from teammates.
Now, thats especially important if you solo-queue WZs, or if you like Soloing.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA

im 95% or so of wz first in kills, 1rst to 3rd damage and 3rd to 5th in healing.
HEALING

so annimara kills the loads and help m8s stay longer on the fight.
thats utility no rage mara/jugga has.

Get in a WZ with a decent Rage mara dude. Anni is fine, working and competitive.
But Rage > Anni in warzones, and you should know if you played both Anni and Rage specs.

Annihilation is the only marauder spec. Anything else and you're gimping yourself.

To each his own.

Winning 1v2s and 1v3s, and ending with 10-11 medals every Wz tells me that Rage is doing anything but gimp me.

You would only do better as Annihilation. I eat Rage marauders from breakfast, lunch and dinner.

********. Rage is the best spec for pvp. Why? 4k instant dmg > dots.

What exactly is Rage better at than Annihilation? Annihilation burns through armor, so its more effective at taking down enemy ball carriers. Annihilation has faster force leaps, so its better for being the ball carrier or chasing down the enemy carrier (oh by the way, force leap immobilize isn't stopped by resolve). On the subject of force leap, combined with faster disruption, Annihilation is better at killing those pesky healers in all warzones.

The ONLY thing rage has over Annihilation is AOE damage, which MAY be useful in Voidstar, but I could argue just as much that taking down specific key targets faster is more useful to the team, which Annihilation does much, much better than Rage.

Most people just can't handle the number of hotkeys required to make Annihilation work right, so they default to Rage or Carnage and think its better because their personal numbers are better than when they play Annihilation. Annihilation has the highest potential damage by far because you're also healing yourself which means less downtime being dead.

Carnage is the outlier in that its less damage than the other two, but has some nice utility in Deadly Throw root and Ravage root.

Lol never played Annihilation have you? My annihilate hits for almost 5k, and my dots crit for 1.4k. Come at me with that weak *** rage spec if you want to. I'll roll over your *** lol.
