If you scroll up you'd see that the old thread reached 1000+ posts and the GM made restarted it in a new thread while locking the old one.

Regarding the AoE blind on bubble break: It's balanced....IF they add 2 conditions:

1. ONLY when the bubble breaks FROM DAMAGE should it do this.

2. Only the bubble cast ON THE USER WITH THE TALENT should have this effect. Currently all bubbles placed by someone with this talent on any teammate, etc will cause this effect to go off.

If you think star wars fans relate more to infinite force lightning from 8 people in a warzone more than jedi knights then I'm not sure what to tell you.

Read the thread. I actually defend the bubble AND the talent for Sorcerers. Other people actually posted that the bubble needed to be nerfed and I explained that it was a key part of the class and that it was balanced. You've made at least 10 posts in the old thread. I'm asking, no, pleading you to read the entire OP. Read the whole thing and let it sink in. Then post.

Yeah cus the messianic hero figure from Star Wars never used his melee abilities, and was a iconic caster class.

Oh wait...that was the villain.

Are you trying to say this is the "mage class" which is why it is overpopulated?

http://www.warcraftrealms.com/census...ervertypeid=-1

Nope that argument doesn't seem to hold water either.

How about it being the second easiest class to master and having the only OP hybrid spec, while other hybrid specs were nerfed (when noone even complained about them).

How about the fact that when you don't cleanse, heal or throw bubbles on other people and still be top dawg on dmg, and if you DO? You are OP as hell.

How about not really having to manage a resource in comparison to other classes, having the best CC, being the only decent offhealing dps in the game ( a shield on another player is the best instant heal in the game due to no dispel)?

Yup everything that makes the hybrid spec OP has NOTHING to do with it being overplayed and mass rerolled to.

It is all cus it is the "mage class", even though in game play, sniper/slinger is more of a traditional mage class because they don't heal (mages aren't supposed to) and have to actually cast things with cast times with a more fun and difficult rotation.

The scoundrel story is also WAY better then the sage one. So why are there so few slingers in comparison? Must be the awesome helms the sages get right? LOL at whoever designed those.

Oh and for those saying they can't nerf us cus we make up the majority of their playerbase?

LOL at that logic. The casters in WoW are 10 x as difficult to play. This game is the only place someone who is not very good at all can play a ranged class (minus slinger/sniper) and do very well. They wouldn't lose any of you to WoW, they would just make the non hybrid sage/sorc happier in this game...

Win/Win for Bioware/EA.

Considering a double bubbling sorcerer takes more damage to kill than a DPS powertech with their 25% dmg reduction shield up (With armor mitigation taken into account, and the difference in their health pools) even when you discount all of their crowd control and mobility sorcerers are hardly squishy

Probably because the FotM crowd chooses their class based on the cries of OP in forums.
